Using a sample of hair, the Mineral & Toxic Element Test will analyse the levels of mineral & heavy metals in your body. The test kit accurately measures the following eight minerals: Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Magnesium, Manganese, Selenium, Iron (hair), Zinc. These minerals are of major importance in health and disease, including diabetes, heart conditions, and osteoporosis.
The following four toxic elements are also tested: Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead, Mercury (hair).
Heavy metal toxicity can arise by prolonged exposure to environmental contamination and can cause a range of symptoms, from headaches to muscle pains, tremors, dizziness, depression and general neurological problems, among others. Mercury toxicity can arise from drinking contaminated tap water or even a high consumption of fish with high mercury content or from leaching from dental fillings. Lead toxicity can easily arise by prolonged exposure to exhaust fumes, arsenic toxicity or arsenic poisoning could comes from the arsenic present in some paints and in industrial waste, cadmium toxicity from cigarette smoke.
