ZRT Comprehensive Toxic & Essential Elements Profile
This simple at home blood spot test and urine test measures:
Our exposure to heavy metals is on the rise. Common sources are dental fillings, water, rice, seafood and cigarette smoke.
Toxic elements can significantly increase our risk of developing conditions like dementia, infertility, diabetes and cancer. These toxins can contribute to dysfunction in the liver, kidneys and brain, as well as the cardiovascular, nervous and endocrine systems.
Essential elements are healthy when they are within optimal ranges. Copper, iodine, magnesium, selenium and zinc are critical for enzymes that synthesize neurotransmitters and activate hormones. Bromine and lithium play a positive role in health but can also be potentially toxic at excessive levels.
Why Test Heavy Metals & Essential Elements?
Getting too much or too little of various elements has consequences for our overall health.
Who should consider heavy metals and essential elements testing? Anyone who:
- Has exposure to private well water or aging pipes
- Is concerned about heavy metals in foods like vegetables, rice and seafood
- Has mercury dental work
- Lives in an older home or near an industrial area
- Has thyroid-related health issues
Heavy metals and essential elements affect different systems of the body, so they can’t all be measured in the same body fluid.
For example, urinary cadmium is the best measure of accumulated exposure, while blood spot assesses only recent exposure. Blood is the only appropriate medium to assess lead exposure, and urine is the only appropriate medium for arsenic.
