porphyrins profile of toxic effects and functional markers of toxicity from toxic metals and organic chemicalsPorphyrins measured in urine serve as biomarkers of toxic effects on the heme biosynthetic pathway. Heme is the deep red, nonprotien, ferrous component of hemoglobin and is essential for the proper function of many proteins for oxygen transport, energy production, and detoxification. Patterns of specific porphyrin elevations in urine serve as functional markers to specific toxins, including toxic metals, such as mercury and lead.

Heavy metals impair many aspects of metabolism, while chronic exposure to organic chemicals, such as pesticides, can have deleterious effects on the body’s biochemistry and adversely affect cellular function.

free health consultation to evaluate your porphyrins biomarkers of toxicity from toxic metals and organic chemicals functional health test results and treatmentWith a simple overnight urine collection, the Porphyrins Profile measures seven porphyrins, total porphyrins, and two ratios to help identify the effects of metal toxicity. It also measures patterns of specific porphyrin evaluations which serve as functional markers of toxicity from toxic metals or organic chemicals.

Elevations of the individual porphyrin species can have a number of causes, including heredity and environmental contact. Chronic exposure to toxic metals, including lead, mercury, arsenic, aluminum, and cadmium often results in organ-specific accumulation that compromises organ physiological function.
