Hair tissue mineral analysis measures nutrient and toxic metal content of hair.
Because the make up of the hair is determined by external as well as internal sources entering the blood stream, hair makes an ideal medium for analysis.
Hair can contain minerals and metals and can accumulate over long periods of time. A wide range of metals and minerals can be measured in one sample to provide status of cellular activity and nutrient metabolism. Every physiological function in the body is reliant on minerals.
Since the structure of hair remains unchanged, the minerals are fixed in the hair and levels in hair do not significantly change once that portion of hair has grown. The analysis accurately provides concentrations of minerals that have accumulated in the hair tissue over the hair growth period, approximately one to three months.
Heavy metals toxicity can be caused by exposure to pollution, chemicals and poisons. It is a growing threat to the population as metals deposit in body tissues leading significant developmental and neurological damage. Heavy metal toxicities can also lead to numerous health conditions including those affecting the cardiovascular, endocrine (hormonal), immune, muscle, skeletal, skin and nervous systems.
