Do you get enough vitamins and minerals? Who knows! But 45.6% of Canadians aged one year and older (approximately 15.7 million people) used at least one nutritional supplement. (Statistics Canada) How often do you read that these supplements don’t actually work and you’re paying a lot for extra yellow pee? I believe in supplements and have a reminder on my phone to take my prenatal vitamins every day (though I still tend to forget).

How do you know if your body’s vitamins and minerals trends are where they need to be? A blood test would help, but who wants to do that? That’s why I was super intrigued by the technology Vitastiq has introduced, that uses technology  to track your vitamin trend.


Vitastiq connects the EAV methodology to your smartphone. The EAV (Electroacupuncture According to Voll) was researched by a German medical doctor Reinhard Voll and his team. They established that acupuncture points differ from the surrounding skin and have higher electrical conductivity. The electrical conductivity at these points has been related to the vitamin and mineral balance.

It’s a very easy to use product. You download the app to your phone and the Vitastiq connects to it via Bluetooth.

Hit start and  calibrate the stick by rubbing it back and forth on a part of your thumb.

After that, you follow the directions and push the stick into your skin at various points on your hand.










The first time I used it my readings were not as good as I had hoped. It was understandable though because a.) I have a parasite inside me sucking all my nutrients (whom I love more than anything) and b.) I forgot to take my prenatal vitamin the day before.

I decided to try it again the next day (and not forget my vitamins) and see if there was a difference. There was some improvements, but not as much as I expected!

I also tried it out on Ryan to do a comparison and was surprised that his readings were better than mine.

When you go over your final report, the app will give you advice for natural ways to increase that vitamin or mineral through nutrition.


This is a VERY cool tool for the tech loving health nut who wants to keep track of these essential numbers. And being able to find out how you can naturally incorporate more of vitamins you’re lacking is such a handy tool to have.


As cool as this product is, I am not a tech person and I don’t want this awesome piece of technology sitting in my desk drawer going unused. I’m giving it away to one lucky reader. Just enter below for your chance to win! (Open to Canadian residents only)
