Trace elements – indispensable for enzyme function
Trace elements are very important for optimal enzyme function. Whole blood must be analysed so that trace elements can be reliably determined.
Trace elements – why are they there…
Trace elements act as important aids for optimal enzyme function in the body. Based on whole blood examination the doctor can see the concentration of both the desired trace elements (e.g. copper), as well as toxic metals from our environment (e.g. cadmium), in the body.
Analysis in whole blood
Because some metals are primarily in body cells, a serum determination is unreliable and must be supplemented by the analysis of whole blood.
