Far Hills Pharmacy partnered with Vibrant America labs to provide functional testing
and consultations to develop deeper into a more customizable nutrition approach.

We offer a variety of tests including gut testing, food sensitivities, micronutrients, and hormone testing. Consult with Amanda, Our dietitian today to discuss additional test options. 

Popular Tests

Micronutrient Bundle

Micronutrient Bundle
Micronutrient Bundle

Micronutrients, as opposed to macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fat), are comprised of vitamins and minerals which are required in small quantities to ensure normal metabolism, growth and physical well‐being.

Your genetics, aging, lifestyle, chronic illness, and medications all affect your cellular nutrient absorption. The intracellular portion of Vibrant’s micronutrient test takes all the above factors into consideration to identify your cellular nutrient absorption status. This test can reveal a person’s functional nutritional status over a much longer time (4-6 months) than extracellular testing.

Almost every physiological function in your body requires micronutrients to function optimally. Vitamin, minerals and anti-oxidants play a key role in:

  • Producing and releasing energy.
  • Strengthening the immune system.
  • Reducing systemic inflammation.
  • Protecting against free radical damage.
  • Maintaining a healthy hormonal balance (i.e. thyroid, sex hormones, adrenal hormones, neurotransmitters/brain hormones, etc.).
  • Maintaining insulin sensitivity.
  • Slowing down cellular aging.
  • Promoting the health of all tissues: skin, bone, brain, breast, gut, prostate, heart, muscle, organs, etc.
  • Protecting against the development, progression, and recurrence of cancer.

Knowing both your extracellular and intracellular micronutrient levels are key to a thorough understanding of your nutritional requirements at a foundational level, which may contribute to your risk for disease, while simultaneously and positively impacting your overall health and well-being.

This testing would be most beneficial if you:

Hormone Testing Bundle

Hormone Testing Bundle
Hormone Testing Bundle

To assess the status of hormones and their precursors and metabolites.

Hormones are essential chemical messengers which regulate routine processes in the body. Hormone imbalances can affect a wide range of body functions including:

  • metabolism and appetite,
  • heart rate
  • sleep cycles
  • reproductive cycles and sexual function
  • general growth and development
  • mood and stress levels
  • body temperature

All of these can negatively affect quality of life and may increase the risk for hormone-related diseases, including hormone-sensitive cancers.

A comprehensive assessment of individual hormones would provide patterns of imbalances in different hormones, while assessment of their metabolites would provide beneficial information on affected downstream pathways. This would help to treat underlying causes of hormone imbalances and identify disease risks associated with individual hormone metabolites.

Assessment of sex and adrenal hormones is critical to differentiate hormonal imbalance from other common conditions which have overlapping symptoms, such as: chronic infections, toxic exposures, GI malabsorption, hepatic detoxification problems, and metabolic disorders.

Hormones, especially adrenal hormones and sex hormones, are interconnected with neurotransmitters. An imbalance in adrenal and sex hormones could lead to neurotransmitter imbalances which could revert back to cause hormonal imbalances. Consider running a Vibrant Hormones panel alongside a Neurotransmitters panel for the most accurate assessment of causes of hormone imbalances and their connected neurotransmitter pathways.

The Vibrant Hormones panel is the most comprehensive panel available to assess the status of hormones in the human body. It eliminates the guesswork of determining root causes of generic and global symptoms and provides practitioners with a clear-cut picture of hormonal imbalances present.

Wheat Zoomer & Leaky Gut Bundle

Wheat Zoomer & Leaky Gut Bundle
Wheat Zoomer & Leaky Gut Bundle

For the detection of wheat and gluten-related disorders, intestinal permeability, celiac disease, and gluten-related autoimmunity.

1 in 7 individuals in the United States has a wheat-related disorder.

As gluten- and wheat-sensitivity become better recognized in the medical community, the need for accurate and highly sensitive testing to identify affected individuals has grown. Vibrant’s answer is the Wheat ZoomerTM.

The Wheat ZoomerTM aids in the specific recognition of antibodies to wheat peptides – including gluten and non-gluten components, along with antibodies that indicate the presence of intestinal permeability. It is also a highly sensitive peptide-based array designed to detect autoimmune reactions to gluten.

Symptoms and conditions associated with wheat and/or gluten sensitivity include:

  • Digestive discomfort/IBS
  • Low vitamin D levels
  • Difficulty concentrating or “brain fog”
  • Low energy levels/fatigue
  • Intestinal permeability (“leaky gut syndrome”)
  • Skin inflammation (eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis)
  • Chronic headaches or migraines
  • Weight gain/weight loss
  • Joint pain or numbness in the legs, arms, or fingers

The Wheat Zoomer requires a blood draw and fasting for at least 8 hours prior to your draw is recommended, but not required.

Comprehensive antibody recognition will simultaneously identify any of the conditions which may be associated with gluten and/or wheat, to include:

  • Intestinal permeability (“leaky gut syndrome”)
  • Celiac disease
  • Wheat allergy
  • Wheat germ agglutinin-related vitamin D deficiencies
  • Gluten ataxia and other neurological symptoms
  • Dermatitis/eczema (skin-related disorders)
  • Gluten sensitivity
  • Wheat sensitivity

Select 4 food zoomers of your choice

“Antigenic foods in the western food supply may be the underlying root causes of chronic in-flammatory conditions and diseases. Vibrant has developed a highly sensitive and specific test platform on which we have synthesized the entire proteome of each of those antigenic foods (Corn, Dairy, Eggs, Lectins, Nuts, Peanuts, Seafood, Soy, and Wheat).

Our peptide-level testing ‘zooms in’ on the individual peptide fragments of proteins in order to test for the full array of possible reactivity to each of these foods, for the most accurate results when you need to be 100% certain of reactivity or sensitivity to one of those foods, which might be a trigger for common inflammatory symptoms that affect the gastrointestinal, neurological, integumentary (skin), connective tissue/joints, and other body systems.

In addition, Vibrant also offers a 180 extract level food sensitivity panel, which can be ordered together, or as separate 96 and 80 food panels.

Gut Zoomer Bundle

Gut Zoomer Bundle
Gut Zoomer Bundle

A unique opportunity to take a close look at the microbial world that exists in our gut, and how it affects our daily functions.

The gut microbiome resides in your large intestine and is host to more than 1000 species of bacteria that perform certain important functions from shaping the immune system to influencing metabolism of nutrients to fortifying the intestinal mucosal barrier (gut barrier).

It is important to know the abundances of the bacteria that symbiotically live in the human gastrointestinal tract because imbalances in the gut microbiome may lead to gastrointestinal symptoms, skin conditions, autoimmune disorders, immune system imbalances, and multiple inflammatory disorders.

Vibrant uses a proprietary microarray hybridization technology platform, using the whole-genome data to simultaneously detect over 300 microorganisms with 99% specificity and 98% sensitivity, unheard-of levels of accuracy in the detection of pathogenic microorganisms. Because Vibrant does not use sequencing technology, which is time-consuming and prone to high level so inaccuracy, the Gut Zoomer is the most accurate microbiome test available to aid discerning healthcare providers in the assessment and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders.

The Gut Zoomer report provides you with actionable recommendations that include potential risks for:

  • Intestinal permeability (SCFA producing bacteria and tight junction integrity)
  • Intestinal disorders (IBS and IBD related bacteria)
  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)- related bacteria
  • Cardiovascularhealth (inflammationinfluencing and TMAO-related bacteria)
  • Autoimmune health (celiac, Crohn’s, rheumatoid arthritis, etc)
  • Neurological health (MS, Parkinson’s, and more)
  • Liver diseases (cirrhosis, hepatitis, cholangitis, and more)
  • Metabolic health (Obesity, diabetes, etc)
  • Nutrition (Vitamin production, oxalate metabolism)
  • Microbiome and hormone connections (Beta-glucuronidase and Beta-glucosidase)
  • 67 pathogenic bacteria
  • 24 Intestinal parasites
  • 8 viruses
  • 5 Fungal or yeast species
  • 5 worm species
  • 6 antibiotic resistance genes measured

and newly added additional markers of functional digestive status:

  • Calprotectin
  • Pancreatic elastase 1
  • Bile acids
  • Cholic acid
  • Chenodeoxycholic acid
  • Deoxycholic acid
  • Lithocholic acid
  • Acetic acid
  • Butyric acid
  • Propionic acid
  • Valeric acid
  • Total SCFAs
  • ß-glucuronidase

The test performs the most comprehensive analysis available of your intestinal microbiomeecosystem from a simple one-time stool collection. This test examines the complex and intricate relative abundance of each species or genus measured, in relation to the rest of the ecosystem, to provide a unique perspective on the gut microbiome and its connection to disease and inflammation.
