    What's tested?

    Skin & Hair

    Skin & Hair

    Function

    Healthy looking skin and hair requires enough minerals from your diet, and balanced hormones. They provide and maintain the quality and durability of your hair and skin.

    Biomarkers tested by myHaut und Haare

    • Zinc
    • Ferritin
    • TSH
    • Copper

    Zinc is an essential mineral in the body. It strengthens the immune system, supports wound healing, healthy skin and hair and helps recovery after exercise. Zinc keeps your brain and nerves functioning normally, as is needed for testosterone production.

    Ferritin levels reflect your body's iron storage. Iron is important for many of your body's enyzmes, and especially for oxygen transport. A deficiency can contribute to hair loss, in addition to weakness and reduced performance.

    Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) controls the production of thyroid hormones, which are essential for your body's metabolism. Irregular thyroid activity can contribute to poor performance and sleep, low energy, difficulty with weight control, and bad mood. Your thyroid activity may also be the cause of problems with dry hair and skin.

    Copper is an essential trace element and is required for the normal operation of your organs. Copper plays an important role in making proteins for skin tissue.

    Frequently asked questions

    Who should take this test?
    We recommend this test:
    - If a well-groomed and healthy appearance is important to you
    - If a balanced diet, personalised to your needs, is important to you
    - If you want to find out, how your nutrition can provide your body with the right conditions for strong hair and healthy skin
    - If you're tired of blindly taking supplements without being sure they're right for your body.
    What symptoms does it address?
    Common indicators of non-optimal levels and deficiencies of the blood values covered by this test include:
    - flaky skin and dandruff
    - hair loss
    - impure skin
    - fragile nails
    - skin infections
    - dry, brittle hair
    - wounds slow to heal
    How does it work?
    After your test kit arrives in the mail - around 2-3 days after completing your order - you'll take a few drops of blood from your fingertip and send us the sample in a postage pre-paid envelope. When our certified lab partner has completed the analysis - around 2 weeks - you'll receive an email with a link to a profile with your results. In your profile, you'll also find personalised nutrition and lifestyle recommendations.
    What does it test?
    We analyse your blood values and determine whether your values are in their optimal ranges. Having values in these optimal ranges is the key to reaching peak health and performance. If a value is not optimal, we provide concrete nutrition and lifestyle recommendations to get you where your body needs to be.
    What kind of results and recommendations will I get?
    Our science team - consisting of molecular biologists, nutrition scientists, and doctors - maintains world-class algorithms for nutrition and lifestyle recommendations based on your blood values. Our recommendation engine delivers you the specific recommendations needed to improve your blood values and, more importantly, your health.
    Why should healthy people do a blood test?
    Blood values are not only important for early detection and prevention of risk factors and health problems. They can also show unexpected and less obvious deficiencies affecting performance and quality of daily life. The human body changes as it ages - therefore regular testing of blood values is strongly recommended.
    Why should I pay for a blood test if I can get one for free from the doctor?
    Lykon is not a replacement for a visit to the doctor. The blood tests done by your doctor are an absolute necessity for acute problems. However, besides the clinical blood values analysed by your doctor, there are a multitude of other parameters which are crucial for your health but not tested by your doctor. For example, Lykon tests the concentration of vitamins and mineral levels in your blood. Our recommendations - developed by our health experts - can never take the place of a doctor's advice, but can help you improve for instance your vitamin levels. In addition, the doctor compares your blood values with norm values for the population as a whole. As much of the population suffers from various deficiencies, much of the prescriptive power of these tests is lost. Lykon works with medical studies to define the optimal values for you, to help you achieve your maximum. Blood tests with this scope are not offered free of charge by your doctor - of course, there are tests for a more limited range of blood values which are not supported by public health insurance, but are nonetheless available from your doctor.
