Richfeel Health and Beauty Private Ltd has collaborated with Trace Elements,Inc,USA to introduce a non-invasive hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) to detect mineral deficiencies in the human body. Hair provides one of the best media for mineral analysis of the body according to Richfeel. This test,a first of its kind in the country,requires only one gram of hair to detect the state of 37 minerals in the body and give a detailed analysis of these. Based on the HTMA result,doctors at Richfeel will suggest steps such as changes in ones diet to correct these deficiencies or imbalances.

Unveiling a new concept in fitness,VLCC has introduced DNA FIT,Asias first body shaping programme,tailored to the make-up of individual customers. This DNA-based weight-loss programme marks a shift in weight management,as conventional programmes worldwide have so far focussed on indicators such as BMI,BMR and BCA.
