The urine elements profile measured through a simple dried urine collection assesses whether an individual has too little, or too much, of the essential nutrients iodine and selenium, or if they have been exposed to too much of the toxic elements bromine, arsenic, mercury, and cadmium.
To Some degree depending on our lifestyle, work habits, dietary choices, and our supplementation routine, we are exposed to the elements iodine, bromine, selenium, arsenic, mercury, and cadmium. Levels of these elements in the food we eat is dependent on soil levels and other environmental exposure of plants and animals that end up in the food chain and ultimately on our own dining tables. We can also be directly exposed to elements through environmental pollution of the air we breathe and water we drink, as well as exposure through our skin.
