A balanced diet should be sufficient to provide optimal amounts of essential nutrients. However, in today’s world of compromised eating habits, environmental stresses and nutrient depleted fresh and processed foods, having the optimal levels of essential elements within the body is not guaranteed.
Trace and essential elements are vital for nearly all of the chemical reactions in the body. Without optimal amounts, the consequences may be chronic disease, acute illness and, in some severe cases, death.
This test is unique in that a wide range of minerals can be measured in one sample to provide status of cellular activity and nutrient metabolism. Every physiological function in the body is catalysed by minerals. Mechanisms of toxicity include antagonism of mineral balance, alterations in enzyme activity, and changes in neuronal membrane potential, increased oxidation and effects on the immune system. Consider testing for non-specific symptoms with no known etiology and treating mineral deficiencies or to monitor the effects of mineral and nutrient supplementation.
