First of all, let's learn the difference between vitamins and minerals. Vitamins are chemical compounds, minerals are chemical elements. All vitamins are essentials and necessary for healthy mindbody, not all minerals that are found in soil, plants and animal sources are essential or necessary for humans and some are quite harmful. There are essential minerals that we cannot function without: calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus and sulfur, and then there are trace minerals - we need them in trace quantities, and without their proper supply we can get really sick, the list is long, bit i will mention iodine, iron, zinc and selenium. Then there is a proven teaching, that all these minerals we consume ought to be in a right proportion with each other. Here comes the tissue analysis - hair test, to evaluate our metabolic function based on the level of above mentioned minerals and their ratios. The hair is the easiest and least expansive tissue to collect and examine, versus blood or urine test. If you happen to be bold, not to worry, armpit or pubic hair will do.
