Show Notes

In episode 255 of The Real Food Reel we share with you part two of how to prepare for your upcoming season and the key blood tests you need. We explore liver health, via a liver function test (LFT), which isn’t truly about the function of your liver. We then explore immune function, looking at haematology, or white cell count and platelets more specifically. You will learn what this means for your microbiome health and the direction of further testing. We then uncover zinc, copper, their ideal ratios and the key strategies you need to optimise all of these markers and your health, performance and longevity.
