Vitatester is a system which, today, contains more than 2.240 symptom (physical, behaviour, mood, etc) that can be possibly caused by the lack of vitamins, minerals,… By following carefully the 4 step procedure you can find not only what your organism possibly lacks, but also in which food you can find it and in what quantities it exists. Also, by moving to step 3 immediately, you can choose the nutrient you want to find in food, and the daily recommended intake for you. If you go, through the main menu, to the food section immediately, you can see the full analysis of the food you chose, find out which food you can find it in and in what quantities it exists in each of the 170 kinds of food on the base and the recommended quantity for each of the nutrients for you personally. For proper use we recommend you read the instructions carefully.


For the best use of Vitatester we would firstly recommend you devote enough time so as to browse through categories and symptoms. Although at each moment of the symptom search you have the ability to use the search function which controls the whole database through a key word (irrespectively of units and categories), we would advise you to go to it after you have done your search through units and categories, since it is possible to find something that would never cross your mind or that you would search in a wrong way. Careful reading and option between similar symptoms, will give you better and more correct results.

 STEP 1. It is good and useful to start your search by seeing which the 11 general symptoms units are. By choosing a unit you will see a table (immediately below your choice) with all the categories of symptoms which are included in it. Read them all and choose the one you are interested in, and repeat the procedure for the choice of other categories as well in the same or another unit (e.g. category: head, category: behavior, etc) again and again. If you can use the search function to find a symptom, we recommend you use it only after you have followed the procedure step by step (unit- category- symptom), because in that way you might find something more or something you would look with another description. Anyway, at the end of the list of symptoms, there is a search function again.

 STEP 2. Having chosen the categories of symptoms you are interested in through step 1, you come to step 2, in which all the symptoms included in these categories appear. Read carefully and choose the ones that apply to your case. You can go back and forth any time you like (to the symptoms table or to the categories table), to change criteria or add new categories. The saved symptoms, which appear when you choose them, are not deleted unless you chose to delete one. The choice of at least 3 symptoms is required in order to move to the next step.

 STEP 3. If you have started with the search of symptoms (1st step): Here you can see the results concerning possible lack of vitamins/mineral/… Choose up to two and after you fill in some useful personal characteristics- anonymously- (age-sex-weight-situation), you can choose one of the 19 food groups. Of course you can repeat the situation with another food group later, on the next step. In that way you will be able to see which are the kinds of food, in each group you are interested in, which have the largest quantities and what percentage they cover from the daily recommended intake for you personally. If you go to step 3 immediately (that is, without having used the search symptoms function) instead of searching for possible lack of nutrients, you will have the possibility to choose on your own which (up to 2) vitamin/mineral/… you are going to look for in food groups.

 STEP 4. The results appear: Tables, which present the food group you chose, and the context of the nutrient you chose. There might be various tables for the same food group, but each of them will contain different nutrients. By clicking on a food you can see in a pop-up all the nutrients included in it. Daily recommended intake for you personally: On the right of the column with the nutrient context, in every food, you will see (if you have filled in your personal information) the percentage that this context covers from your personal daily recommended intake for a balanced diet. Choosing new food group (it appears on the top right) you can see immediately the results of your new choice. Food with the biggest percentage of the nutrient you look for: Table with food that has the largest content in each of the 18 food groups, with first reference the one with the largest content in the nutrient.

From the main menu to the food page immediately: You can use the alphabetical index and choose one of the food to see all its nutrient, in five different categories: Minerals-Mineral traces, Vitamins, Amino acids, Fat, Basic/Various.

I read the instructions and I agree that:
- It is clear that Vitatester gives only clues for possible lack of nutrients from the organism and information regarding the food these nutrients can be found, although it is known that some food , regardless of their content, are not suitable for everyone.
- Although that is known that only when taking vitamins/ minerals/ mineral traces in large quantities and for a long time (or in special conditions) can cause problems, usually reversible, it is recommended I should visit a health professional before taking them.

Special information:

The information on food come mainly from the responsible services of the USA government. The daily recommended intake is based on the information of the relevant government list of Australia and New Zealand as well. Where there are additional references of local productions (per country) with analyses, the information is taken from their measurements or from laboratory ones.

For easier use of the search function you should keep in mind some general information:

• We sometimes added two or three words with the same meaning so as to make finding them easier (excrement, excretion, etc)
• In some illnesses we put descriptions for the same reason- to be able to find more easily and through different search attempts your symptoms.
• Concepts: e.g. sense- s, it’s not only what we feel through our known senses (hearing, vision, touch…) but something more. E.g. Have you got a sense you want to urinate…. Have you got a sense that something is going to happen, etc.
