It is a test that analyzes the DNA methylation patterns of hair cells. By analyzing these patterns, valuable information can be obtained about a person’s overall health and well-being, as well as their predisposition to certain health conditions.
In relation to hair health, the study can provide information about the nutrients, minerals and vitamins that hair needs to grow healthily. The study report may indicate if there are nutritional optimization opportunities or if there is a need to increase intake of certain specific nutrients to improve hair health.
Additionally, the study can help identify hormonal imbalances that can affect hair health. For example, if methylation patterns indicate increased androgen production, this may indicate a predisposition to hereditary hair loss.
