Sample Report


Heavy metal toxicity is a common issue in Australia and lots of people are widely affected by this health condition. Heavy metals, such as mercury, lead and aluminium, can accumulate in the body over time and can lead to a number of concerning symptoms and health conditions. Heavy metal toxicity is primarily caused by the levels of pollution and use of chemicals that we are exposed to on a day to day basis.

NutriPATH offer an advanced screening test for the water people drink which influences their metal and mineral status. This is especially true during chelation. It is important to know about the metal and mineral content of the water that you consume.

In most circumstances, water is processed through filters and water systems however, in rural areas, for instance, water supply systems are often inadequate or not available, and contaminated water remains in the water that is consumed by humans.

The test profile offered by NutriPATH will provide you with an easy, safe, and economical way to test for several of the most common contaminants found in your drinking water.
