In addition to a medical examination, health research (check-up) is carried out to a person’s health check. Its purpose is to keep people with very special features in an excellent condition. For some functions, companies have only one employee stand by, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year and should be able to intervene immediately at disturbances. An example is a programmer for the water balance of water-attractions in large holiday parks. For the parks in several countries, just one programmer is in service, which travels at failure immediately on the spot. His health is worth a lot of money. Even though someone feels healthy, yet has regularly minor discomfort that did not fit optimal health. About risk what this has, is however little to say.
Also top athletes and people with a stressful jobs can benefit from this kind of research, so it can be determined, despite frequent use of multi vitamins, if there no specific deficits occur anyway.
Nutrition, well-being and essential nutrients are next to «accountability» and «success experiences» by far the most important modifiable factors that determine human health. Either surplus or deficits will eventually have a negative impact on health. The problem is magnified because the optimal values are not the same for everyone.
The main cause of this, the biochemical individuality, makes that the need for non-sick people can differ huge. Also affects essential nutrients each other needs. Stress, tension, use of stimulants and drug use exposure to environmentally harmful substances, increase the need for essential nutrients.
There are many ways to measure these values. The problem is that different values both in and outside the cell, in the blood or in the serum may be present. Sometimes it is more convenient to search the processes that the metabolism of mineral or vitamin depend on as in an amino acid analysis. In this way it is much faster clear whether there are certain deficits. Such a study is easier and less expensive than full minerals and vitamin research.
