I came across a relatively new service at http://www.bioletics.com/ This is purported to assess your nutrition levels - especially vitamin D, iron, and amino acids - and give you the "information" needed to supplement on an individual basis. Some of the principles make sense, but some of the warnings seem overblown. And I'm always concerned about over-supplementation by athletes looking for magic fixes. Any thoughts or research on this kind of testing and its usefulness for athletes, either short-term (performance) or long-term (health)?

From my personal experience I'm convinced that there is a high potential in assessing your body's needs. If this exact service will do the trick I don't know. It's probably more to it than just vitamin D, iron and amino acids. But, they are probably right in pointing out that there is more we could do to support our nutrition levels in general.
