Nutrient and Toxic Elements Profile
Evidence suggests that chronic toxic element exposure can adversely affect energy levels, reproductive function, cancer risk, neurological development and even degenerative conditions. Accumulations of these toxins can occur in the human body in response to food and water intake, and occupational / environmental exposures from toxic release in air, soil, or industrial waste systems. Both well-known toxic metals such as lead and mercury, and others such as cadmium and arsenic are assessed.
On the other hand, nutrient elements are fundamental to every function in the body. They help to build bone and aid in the function of nerve impulses and enzymes. Since the body cannot manufacture the elements and daily losses are unavoidable the nutrient elements are all “essential” and must be regularly taken in through diet or supplements. Common nutrient elements such as magnesium and zinc are measured.
BioBalance Nutrient Elements and Toxic Elements Profiles measures levels of these elements through urine, blood or hair.
What we can measure:
- Toxic Metals: Antimony, Arsenic, Cadmium, Copper, Lead, Mercury, Tin
- Nutrient Elements: Chromium, Copper, Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Selenium, Thallium, Vanadium and Zinc
