Trace element

of trace elements and/or. Micro elements are chemical materials, those contrary to quantity elements in Kleinstmengen (s.g. “Traces”) of less than 50 mg per kilogram body weight of organisms for vital metabolisms - functions to be needed.

An absence of essential (vitally necessary) trace elements with humans, plant and animal callsheavy physiological damage out. Well-known deficiency symptoms are anemia with lack of iron or metabolic disturbances with lack of iodine. A superelevated admission can cause a poisoning, there some micro elements is highly poisonous.

Generally as essential trace elements recognized are:

Chrome, iron, Fluor, Iod, Kobalt, Kupfer, Manganese, molybdenum, selenium, vanadium, zinc

these trace elements are either important components of enzymes, Vitaminen and hormones or work in the sense of Coenzymen catalyzing or activating with certain metabolic reactions.

As non-essential trace elements or elements, whose biological function does not admit yet clearly is,apply:Arsenic, aluminum, barium, bismuth, boron, bromine, germanium, lithium, nickel, mercury, rubidium, silicon, strontium, tellurium, titanium, tungsten, tin

of reasons for a Unterversorgung with trace elements can be:

  • increased elimination, aboutby sweating or failure illnesses
  • metabolic illnesses
  • regional conditions (e.g. the occurrence in the plough land)
  • nourishing habits
element natural occurrence meaning for the body recommended supply per day
Chrome (CR) liver, Bierhefe, wheat germs important with glucose tolerance in particular at the age and with diabetes 0.03 - 0.2 mg
