You are right in the middle of a gym program, which is going great, and you haven’t missed a day yet.

The publication of my review of the literature supporting of Hair Testing [HERE] (or lack thereof) attracted a great deal of interest and correspondence from within the industry.
BioTrace, a company selling nutritional supplements and hair test kits provided a response to our article. You can read the response in its entirety at the bottom of this article.
After reviewing the response from BioTrace our position is unchanged.
We feel that nothing substantive in the way of evidence supporting the use of Hair Testing has been provided. BioTrace’s hair testing to our knowledge specifically tests hair for minerals and whilst we agree that the only applicable use at this stage for hair testing is the indication of minerals / heavy metals, to suggest its validity for deficiency and treatment is still at-odds with the current scientific literature.
