NUTRITION | ION Profile®
"JOINCIRCLES enables you to own your own medical data. After buying an advanced biochemistry test here, we’ll send your test kit out the next working day. When your kit arrives, do the test and call our courier to collect – follow the simple instructions in the kit. The lab will take around 21 working days to analyse your sample from the time they receive your sample. When your results are ready, I'll email them directly to you. To get the full value from your results, we highly recommend that you contact a healthcare practitioner from our ‘Practitioner Circle’ to take you through your results. This will help you understand how and where to focus your efforts. They may suggest additional relevant blood, blood spot and urine biochemistry tests that you can do going forward, to measure and track your risks and potentials. After your consult, you could book a wellness coaching appointment with Margie to get you started and keep you on track. Once you have your biochemistry results, you can start shopping for your personalised nutrition, environment and lifestyle choices on JOINCIRCLES.com. This is how you start on your journey towards optimal wellness! Please contact me if you need help choosing the right test and/or practitioner for your needs".

A nutritional analysis for personalized supplementation
This test contains quite a few other tests so actually works out to better value.
Over time, functional nutritional inadequacies can contribute to a variety of chronic health conditions.
Imbalanced or insufficient nutrients affect a wide range of body functions, producing symptoms that negatively affect the quality of life and may play a causative role in chronic conditions. A structured broad-based nutritional analysis “such as an ION Profile” to evaluate underlying nutrient imbalances, provides clinical utility by supporting insight into the development of personalized treatments. An improved nutritional status can often enhance other therapies and help speed the resolution of complex chronic conditions.
This test is also ideal for establishing a baseline assessment ahead of clinical intervention with nutraceuticals as well as subsequent monitoring as needed.
Benefits | Features
The innovative ION test report is designed for facilitated interpretation and enhanced clinical utility:
- Colourimetric quintile results reporting – allows clinicians to quickly see where patient results fall in relation to the tested population, while colour coding provides indications for potential areas of concern.
- Analyte Pattern Analysis – organizes analyte results into categories associated with clinical/metabolic conditions; patterns of abnormalities can reinforce degree of significance indicated by a single measurement.
- Supplement Recommendation Summary – personalized recommendations based on test results that may help to normalize nutrient-dependent metabolic functions.
Why use the ION Profile?
The ION Profile is a nutritional analysis that measures over 125 key nutrient biomarkers and ratios that can help identify nutritional shortfalls that may be a root cause of complex chronic conditions. The ION Profile evaluates organic acids, fat-soluble vitamins, Coenzyme Q10, homocysteine, oxidative stress markers, nutrient and toxic elements, fatty acids, and amino acids.
Nutritional analysis using the ION Profile allows for personalized treatment plans to improve nutritional status, which can enhance other treatments and increase the resolution of complex chronic conditions.
