A comprehensive assessment of heavy metals and toxic elements.
Toxic elements can significantly increase our risk of developing conditions like dementia, infertility, diabetes and cancer. They are also known to cause damage to the liver, kidneys and brain, as well as the cardiovascular, nervous and endocrine systems.
Essential elements are only healthy when they are within optimal ranges. Nutrients like copper, iodine, magnesium, selenium and zinc are critical for enzymes that synthesise neurotransmitters and activate hormones. Bromine and lithium, while not currently classified as “essential” elements, have been shown to play a positive role in health but are also potentially toxic at excessive levels.
Heavy metals and essential elements affect different systems of the body, so they can’t all be measured in the same body fluid. This test uses dried blood spot and dried urine dependent on the marker and its most scientifically appropriate medium.
