Oligo Scan

Instant measurements of minerals, trace elements, oxidative stress and toxic metals.
Oligoscan can be used by all health specialists allowing for rapid and pain free analysis.

The advantages

  •  Instant mineral analysis

  •  A way to detect deficiency/excess in minerals and potential toxic metal poisoning

  •  A comprehensive and customized assessment aiming to optimize your patient’s healthcare approach (laboratory tests, nutrition, nutritional supplements, physical activity, etc.) offering effective monitoring

  •  Specific needs adaptable service

MINERALS

A primary contribution

Minerals (macronutrients and micronutrients) have a key role in the proper functioning of the body. A daily intake of nutritional supplements is essential since the human body is unable to synthesize them itself.

Therefore, a deficiency in trace elements and minerals is one of the major factor for poor performance, tiredness, vulnerability to stress, decreased concentration or intellectual capacity, etc. It is, therefore, important to control the mineral level in the body to be able to anticipate the associated risks.

TOXIC METALS

A new public health issue

Studies by the WHO or FAO have highlighted the increasing dangers of massive exposure to toxic agents. Transmitted by air pollution, ground water and soil, food, etc. contamination is becoming increasingly dangerous and unavoidable involving health risks.

Toxic metals cause oxidative stress.

OXIDATIVE STRESS

To apprehend for better ageing

Oxidative stress is a type of aggression of the cell components by free radicals.
Oxidative stress is responsible for aging and many other diseases.

FREE RADICLES

Free radicals are molecules produced in small amounts by the body. These free radicals are very reactive substances, capable of damaging the components of the cells (enzyme proteins, lipid membranes, DNA). Their production is particularly stimulated by the exposure to sunlight (UV), tobacco, pollution, pesticides, etc.

A diet rich in antioxidants, particularly found in some fruits and vegetables, is essential in fighting free radicals.
