This Hair Elements Test analyses hair to measure recent and ongoing exposure to toxic metals, and to assess the status of nutrient elements.
This Hair Elements Test analyses hair to measure concentrations of toxic metals (recent and ongoing), used to determine an individuals’ exposure, as well as to measure a time-averaged status of specific nutrient elements.
Hair tissue reflects elements that have been excreted, unlike functional tissue. The Hair Elements Test can be used alongside other laboratory tests and individuals’ symptoms to investigate physiological disorders related to problems with toxic and essential elements metabolism.
This test requires 0.25 grams of hair to be collected from 5 different areas on the head.
