What this test will show
This test includes all the same analytes as the ONE test and much more – it shows antioxidant vitamins, B vitamins, minerals, amino acids, organic acids, detoxification markers, and nutrients required to support mental health and nervous system function.
In addition, it also includes fatty acid status/balance, vitamin D, homocysteine, toxic metals (lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, tin), elemental metals (magnesium, manganese, zinc, selenium, potassium, copper, chromium and vanadium, and oxidative stress markers.
Fatty acids and in the correct balance, are crucial to the health of our cells, for absorption of vitamins, for synthesis of hormones, to support brain/mental health (depression, ADHD) and immune function, for heart and cardiovascular health, to regulate inflammation and to counteract insulin resistance and obesity.
Homocysteine is an indicator of many conditions – it is associated with atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, inflammatory bowel disease, colon cancer, diabetes, bone health, mood disorders, Alzheimers, Parkinsons, and other conditions.
Toxic metals can interfere with many processes in the body, resulting in many conditions, with anaemia, sleep disorders, headache, migraine, fatigue, parasthesias and decreased senses, poor concentration, depression, fine muscle tremors being just a few of the symptoms that toxicity can cause. The Toxic metals test can be conducted as a standalone test
Oxidative stress is an indicator of inflammation, infection, environmental toxicity and can advance the aging process. It is also implicated in many disorders including autoimmune conditions, diabetes, cancer, arthritis and more. The oxidative stress element of this test may be conducted as a stand alone (urine) test – click here for the Oxidative Stress 2 Test (MET06)
The organic acids element of this test may be conducted as a stand alone (urine) test – see below click here for the Metabolic Analysis Test (MET02)
The toxic and nutrient elements part of this test can also be tested for as a stand alone test to assess recent toxic element exposure and nutrient mineral status – click here for Elemental Analysis Test (NUT10).
Who this test is for
This test is for those with concerns such as fatigue, mood disorders (depression, anxiety), migraines, chronic musculoskeletal pain and inflammatory conditions, gut issues, difficulties with weight management, cardiovascular conditions, and if you want to optimise sports performance and general health.

Turnaround time: 20 days
Before taking this test: Abnormal kidney function or use of diuretics may influence the results of your test. The test should not be performed by patients with kidney disorders which impact on kidney function or creatinine levels. The following medications may also impact on test results: corticosteroids, all classes of antibiotics, amphetamines, anti-diabetic medications which increase urine glucose such as Invokana, acid blocking medications such as cimetidine (Tagamet), fibrate medications (eg Ciprofibrate). Whilst stopping these medications will produce a more accurate result, we do not recommend stopping any prescription or over the counter medications without first consulting with your healthcare provider.
Additional markers – genetic testing
The following 4 genomic tests can be ordered individually as add ons to the NutrEval test at an additional cost. The tests allow greater personalisation of therapeutic treatment for many conditions including depression, anxiety, inflammatory diseases, chronic pain. Sample type for these additional markers is a salivary swab.
