Environmental pollutants are all around us - in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat and in materials we touch.
These pollutants can significantly increase our risk of developing conditions like dementia, infertility, diabetes and cancer. They are also known to cause damage to the liver, kidneys, and brain, as well as the cardiovascular, nervous and endocrine systems.
In excess, and when persistent, they can affect the synthesis and actions of hormones essential for managing our general health.
Essential elements, overall, are only healthy when they are within optimal ranges. Levels too low or too high can have detrimental effects on health. Therefore, it's important to know if essential or toxic elements are outside their optimal ranges.
