TEST / NUTRITION
"You are what you eat". With mybiopassport, learn more about how your nutritional habits have affected your overall well-being, and how to modify it to ensure optimal micronutrient intake.
Rectify your imbalances
Our Nutrition Profile test combines a comprehensive panel of essential micronutrients with personalized actionable recommendations to help you maintain optimal values for each micronutrient. This test includes panels from all four classes of essential micronutrients, namely vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and amino acids. Results for over 30 micronutrients including vitamins D, A, B1, B5, magnesium, selenium, zinc, copper, omega-3, and a panel of amino acids including lysine and tryptophan are provided with recommendations for determining and correcting any potential deficiencies.
Our collection kit includes all the necessary material for the easy collection of 4 drops of blood, namely a dedicated blood collection device, two lancets to prick your finger, two alcohol pads, two gauze pads, two bandages and one prepaid return envelope.

SeleniumHair, skin and nailsImmunityThyroid
Selenium is a powerful antioxidant, meaning it protects cells from oxidative damage. It participates in the function of thyroid gland and in the normal functioning of the immune system.
Signs of deficiency
Thin and brittle hair, muscle weakness
Brazil nuts, fish and seafood, organ meat
Amino acids are the components of proteins. There are 20 of them and 9 of them are said to be essential, i.e. the body is not able to manufacture them. It is therefore important to ensure sufficient intake through the diet. Amino acids are involved in muscle development, skin, hair and nail renewal, hormone and antibody production, and the transmission of nerve messages.
Fatty acids are the components of fats. There are several families of fatty acids, all playing important roles: source of energy, brain development, proper functioning of the heart and immune system, composition of cell membranes, participation in the formation of hormones, etc.
Vitamins are essential because the body cannot produce them (with a few exceptions). They do not provide energy but are involved in many processes in the body, such as the formation of red blood cells (blood), the proper functioning of the heart, muscles, nervous and digestive systems. They also play a role in making DNA (the molecule that makes up our genes) and protecting our cells. Our body has limited reserves for some vitamins and in certain situations (stress, overwork, intensive sports, illness, etc.), our needs are increased.
Minerals do not provide energy to the body but fulfill essential functions, such as development and renewal of our skeleton, muscle and heart contraction, exchanges between cells, formation of proteins (e.g. for healing, immunity, oxygen transport in the body), transmission of nerve impulses, maintenance of acid-base balance, etc. Some minerals, known as trace elements, are only needed in very small quantities but are no less essential.
Hormones are chemical messengers manufactured by the body that are important for health but also for supporting athletic performance. They play an important role in the metabolism of macronutrients (carbohydrate, protein, fat) and influence the production of certain proteins, such as proteins for building muscle.
