- Assessment of tissue toxic metal retention and essential element excretion
- Monitors detoxification therapy
- Analysis by sensitive ICP-MS
- Variable urine collection periods available
Urine, being an excretory tissue like hair, offers a great method of detecting metabolic ‘wasting’ of various electrolytes and cofactor elements due to toxicity (see toxic elements tested on second page of the report), nutrient deficiencies elsewhere in the body, or general organ/gland dysfunction such as the liver/kidneys and as a result of genetics, lifestyle, diet or environment. Beyond general insight into the current metabolism of toxic and essential elements in the body (and therefore body sufficiency need) – including specific trace elements such as copper and chromium, the urine elements test helps to monitor the efficacy / efficiency of any dietary, environmental or supplemental changes / regimes.
