The Bloom Ferritin Test
The Bloom Ferritin Test is designed to quickly reflect your body’s iron stores from the comfort of your own home or at a certified local Bloom partner. The use of serum ferritin as a marker of total iron stores in the body is widely established in clinical practice. While low ferritin levels are indicative of iron deficiency, elevated ferritin levels can correspond to iron overload.

The Bloom Ferritin Report is available on your smartphone within a few minutes - including a personalized interpretation of the results and recommendations. Depending on your iron storage status, the recommendations can help optimize your diet, enrich your knowledge on iron rich food sources and provide information on iron supplementation.

Learn more about Ferritin
Ferritin is a protein that stores iron in your body. Iron is needed to produce healthy red blood cells, which are crucial to transport oxygen from your lungs to the rest of the body. It is not produced by the body itself, instead iron needs to be absorbed from either the foods you eat or supplements you take. Without enough iron, your red blood cells will be unable to supply enough oxygen potentially leading to anemia. Having too much iron, however, isn’t good either as this may cause tissue damage and ultimately organ failure. Low ferritin levels are a good indicator of iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia, and elevated ferritin levels can indicate iron overload in the body (e.g. hemochromatosis).
