This profile tests for 14 minerals and 14 variants of toxic metals to provide a snapshot of cellular activity and nutrient metabolism. With every physiological function in the body catalysed by minerals, measuring toxic heavy metals can highlight the health of processes and systems around the entire body.
Mechanisms of toxicity include antagonism of mineral balance, alterations in enzyme activity, increased blood oxidation, weak immunity and changes in neuronal membrane potential.
This test can highlight potential mineral deficiencies, and monitor the effects of mineral and nutrient supplementation.
TEST TYPE: Spot urine
