This test is a good indicator of body pools of essential elements as well as the toxic elements aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury.
Often referred to as minerals, nutrient elements are fundamental to every function in the body. Since the body cannot manufacture these essential elements, daily losses are unavoidable and must be regularly taken in through diet or supplements.
Some elements can accumulate in tissues causing toxic effects. A toxic load of lead, cadmium, mercury or arsenic is capable of rendering considerable damage to the brain and nervous system, particularly in children.
