Description

Cadmium Blood Spot
Normal range is < 1.03 μg/L

A toxic element that can adversely impact your health when present in the body in excess. Sources include: smoke (cigarette, e-cigarette, or marijuana), plumbing, gasoline and motor oil, some cookware, some processed foods and drinks, batteries, fertilizers, fertilizers, and PVC plastics.

Lead Blood Spot
Normal range is < 2.5 μg/dL

Lead is a toxic metal that can cause serious health issues when present in excess in the body. The soil and water in areas where mining activities have taken place can become very contaminated with lead. Children growing up in these areas are the most vulnerable to lead’s harmful effects. It can also be found in old plumbing, lead based paint, gasoline, tobacco smoke, some dyes, automobile exhaust and other air pollution, some car parts and batteries, and personal care products.

Mercury Blood Spot
Normal range is < 5.37 μg/L

Mercury is very toxic, even in extremely small amounts, and can cause harm in your body. It can be found in some silver dental fillings (amalgams), seafood, batteries, some plastic, personal care products, some cleaning solutions, mining operations, and the paper industry.

Zinc Blood Spot
Normal range is 6.35 – 9.35 mg/L

An essential element for growth, immune function, testosterone production, and as an antioxidant. It is involved in over 200 enzymes in the body.

Copper Blood Spot
Normal range is 0.79 – 1.14 mg/L

An essential element that is important for bone health, connective tissue health, heart health, lipid metabolism, brain health, and skin health. High levels of copper can also be toxic. Sources include drinking water, shellfish, IUDs, and cookware.

Zn/Cu Blood Spot
Normal range is 6.6 – 10.2

Zinc and copper are both essential minerals that can help detoxify heavy metals and protect the body from their damaging effects. An antioxidant enzyme made in the body, superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD), utilizes zinc and copper to help detoxify reactive molecules. The ratio of zinc to copper, not the quantity of zinc and copper, can determine optimal functioning of this enzyme.

Magnesium Blood Spot

An essential element present in all cells of the body and involved in over 500 reactions including energy production. Essential for maintaining normal bone density, normal heart rhythm, healthy lung function, and normal blood sugar regulation.
