The Vitality health check is ideal for anyone wanting a thorough assessment of their wellbeing at an affordable price. Unlike private health clinics, there’s no need to join a waiting list or even visit a clinic, instead, we’ll arrange for a trained nurse to visit you at a location of your choice to collect your sample.
The test measures over 44 biomarkers linked to various areas of wellbeing, so you can get a comprehensive insight into anything from your energy levels to your liver function. So, whether you want to take an active approach to improve your health and lifestyle or check there are no areas of your health you need to worry about , the Vitality blood test is a great option.
If, like many people, you use wearable technology to monitor your health, then it’s clear you’re already interested in keeping yourself in good shape. However, these are not the only tools that can give you an insight into your health and wellbeing. Although they’re a good starting point, they’re often limited to measuring the physical aspects of your health such as heart rate, blood pressure, nutrition, sleep habits and activity levels like step counting. Unless you have private health insurance cover, you have little knowledge of what’s going on inside your body and often, the only time you’ll have a blood test from your doctor is if something has started to go wrong or you have symptoms.
That’s where Forth’s Vitality blood test comes in. Our vitality profile gives you an in-depth understanding of your health by analysing over 45 different biomarkers. It will identify those areas that need improvement so you can take control and navigate your way to better health & wellbeing.
The key areas of your health it measures, include:
“As our physical and mental health can be impacted by many things – from imbalances in our lifestyle choice causing mistiming of hormones, to conditions such as thyroid disorders and diabetes – it can be difficult to know the specific cause of symptoms you may be experiencing. This test checks all these areas to identify the cause of wellbeing issues, whether it’s low energy, mood changes, frequent illness, trouble sleeping or the impact of a stressful lifestyle. It will highlight which areas of your health you need to focus on. It will also assess your longer-term health by checking your heart, bone health and liver function.”

A phlebotomy test is one that requires the blood to be drawn from the vein by a trained healthcare professional rather than a finger prick blood test.
No. Once you’ve purchased your test, we will contact you to arrange a time for a nurse to visit you at a convenient location e.g. your home.
Yes, we will send a phlebotomy kit to you for you to give to the nurse to collect your sample at a convenient time and at a convenient address.
As this is our most in-depth test there are a few markers which need to be analysed at specialist labs. This means you will need to allow us 10 working days for your results to become available on your dashboard.
This test analyses a whole range of biomarkers and a larger blood sample is required that would not be possible to gain via a finger prick blood test.
The nurse will take the kit that has been delivered to you and will use it to draw blood from your vein, in the same way as blood tests are carried out at your GP surgery. The nurse will give you the tubes of blood to post back to Forth using the pre-paid envelope.
The blood collection kit will contain everything needed to collect and return your blood sample, including tubes, syringes, a lab request form and return envelope.
The major difference between the Ultimate and Vitality tests is the analysis of more in depth nutrient biomarkers within the Ultimate test. These includes omega 6:3, vitamin E and vitamin A.
