Tests Included

Trace Metals

Selenium is a trace mineral that helps to maintain a healthy metabolism in the body. It also  strengthens the immune system by increasing antioxidant capabilities which helps the body to defend itself against free radical damage and inflammation. Natural food sources of selenium include brazil nuts, tuna and eggs.

The body only requires selenium in small amounts and high selenium levels in the blood are rare. 

Low levels of selenium in the blood can lead to Keshan disease, hair loss, fatigue and a weakened immune system.
