Minerals & Metals Test


Minerals & Metals Test

30 Minute Health Coaching Consultation Included

This is one of the first labs Dr. Cabral ever completed over 20 years ago as he was beginning to take control of his overall health and wellness. The reason why this lab is so helpful is because it assesses an often overlooked area of your health-minerals.

Your minerals levels include your electrolytes which provide you with the energy you need to get through your busy day, as well as buffer the effects of stress. No test is better at assessing these levels or looking at potential heavy metal toxicity than the Complete Minerals & Metal Test.

Collection Method: Hair Sample

Previously Known as Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Test (HTMA)

*US law prohibits shipment of lab products to New York State.



If someone tells us they are stressed, tired, anxious, and overwhelmed this is the first test we reach for.

The reason for this is that if you are not balanced when it comes to your electrolyte and mineral levels you will not be able to adequately deal with stress in your life.

This is the test that will enable you to see how well your nervous system is handling stress, what stage of adrenal dysfunction you may be in, what your mineral reserves are like, and if you’re dealing with higher levels of toxic heavy metals.

Do You Suffer From

  • High Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Overwhelm
  • Learning Disabilities (Children)
  • Mood disturbances
  • Highs/Low in energy
  • Headaches
  • Skin rashes
  • Tingling/numbness
  • Poor sleep

For heavy metal toxicity, arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury are among four of the most common heavy metals that cause health related issues. What’s worse is that exposure can happen in our daily life, even coming from skin and cosmetic products approved to put on our bodies!



Exposureto high concentrations of heavy metals are possible from the food you eat, air or water pollution, any medicines you take or even food containers with an improper coating. 

Mineral imbalances can also impact your overall good health. In fact, imbalances of minerals like iron, magnesium and potassium can not only cause fatigue but could possibly be an indicator of more serious medical issues later in life.

This test will help you discover the early warning signs of heavy metal toxicity and potential mineral deficiencies through a simple hair sample, proven to be an accurate method of measurement.



Allow approximately 3 weeks once you’ve returned your sample for the lab to process your results. During this time, you will be able to schedule your 30-minute call with one of our health coaches.

All of our health coaches receive extensive training from Dr. Cabral.


Each lab test comes complete with everything you need to easily take your test at home and at your convenience



During your one-on-one call, your health coach will assess your symptoms and reasons for doing this lab test. Your coach will explain your lab results, answer any questions you may have, and you walk away with personalized recommendations according to your test results. These can include:

  • A supplement plan
  • Dietary guidance
  • Sleep guidelines
  • Stress reduction techniques
  • Detox regimens
  • Lifestyle changes


No More Guesswork

Rather than other at-home tests that make you guess at the results, our health coaches take the time to assess your results and go over them with you step by step. And you can feel confident the supplements, diet and lifestyle changes we recommend are the right ones for your body and your health goals.


When it comes to understanding your health challenges at the deepest root cause, you deserve a resource you can trust.

Family First

Every product on this website was formulated with the mindset that my family and I would be using each nutritional supplement.

When you go into a product formulation knowing that your own family and children will use these products it ensures there will never be any compromise…

Plus, I want only the best for my online community and private practice clients. And, since people come to me for results after failing many times in the past, I have to know that every one of these products are truly the best of the best and will help people on their healing journey…


Functional Medicine Formulations

It’s important to understand that not all nutritional supplements are created equal.

For example, in a Functional Medicine practice only methylated or highly bio-available vitamins and minerals will be used in order to make it easy for the body to utilize.

Not only do these formula get better results, but they do not build up as toxins in the body or simply get excreted in the urine like most cheaper forms… 


Zero Compromise Policy

I made a promise to myself when I first started formulating the EquiLife line that I would not compromise on quality…

Even if a product cost me a few more dollars, I would not take any shortcuts in order to make a product for less.

This has enabled EquiLife to set itself apart even in the Functional Medicine community as a leader in the best ingredients used.


GMP Certified

Besides never compromising on using the highest quality ingredients available when formulating our nutritional supplements, I make sure that each batch is 3rd Party tested for contaminants like:

  • Heavy metals
  • Mold
  • Bacteria
  • Impurities
  • Standard dosages

This then allows me to be confident when consuming these products myself and knowing that the dosages are what is stated on the bottle.

Again, this leads to better user results and happier customers and wellness clients!


Consistency & Freshness

Another way in which the Equilibrium Nutrition supplement line sets itself apart as the leader in the industry is by always producing fresh orders every couple of months.

Our products do not sit in warehouses for over a year…

Instead we maintain freshness with smaller continuous batch orders along with climate controlled fulfillment centers.

This guarantees purity, freshness, and taste.

This is a difference you can both see and taste with every bottle!

At EquiLife we strive to provide the fastest and most convenient shipping available!
