Essential Nutrient and Toxic Elements Testing
Heavy metals can accumulate in the body and disrupt the balance of essential nutrients, and become toxic to organ systems. While certain elements are vital for proper body function, others such as mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum, and arsenic are toxic to the human body and interfere with its functioning. These toxic metals have no known physiological functions and can cause harm to organ systems.
MosaicDX offers various testing options, including urine, blood, stool, and hair samples, to evaluate the status of toxic metals and essential elements. This allows practitioners to select the most clinically appropriate option for their patients.
The Metals test reports are useful resources for practitioners who want to gain valuable insights into heavy metals and mineral statuses.
