Aluminium home testing kit for toxicity, aluminium poisoning symptoms and contamination in water and the human body.
Test urine levels if you are concerned about human pollution exposure.
Toxic effects of heavy metal contamination can be poisonous, ingestion is dangerous and can lead to illness.
To test for other heavy metals, we also offer specialist heavy metals test kits for many other heavy metals.
Or try heavy metal hair analysis for accurate laboratory results with dietary recommendations.
Aluminium poisoning symptoms
You could be suffering from poisoning symptoms, simple home health test kit to check your exposure levels.
Aluminium is a neurotoxin that alters the function of the blood-brain barrier, it is one of the few abundant elements that appear to have no beneficial function to living cells.
A small percent of people are allergic to it they experience contact dermatitis from any form of it.
An itchy rash can be caused from aluminium chlorohydrate in deodorant products.
Digestive disorders and inability to absorb nutrients from eating food cooked in aluminium cooking utensils.
In other people it is not considered as toxic as other heavy metals, but there is evidence of some toxicity if it is consumed in excessive amounts.
Excessive consumption of antacids containing aluminium compounds and use of antiperspirants (we sell deodorant that is an aluminium free body spray ) are more likely causes of toxicity symptoms.
In research published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology, Dr. Philippa D. Darby of the University of Reading has shown that aluminium salts increase oestrogens gene expression in human breast cancer cells grown in the laboratory.
These salts oestrogens (Metalloestrogens) can mimic oestrogens thus activating the receptor, they are considered harmful and potentially linked with breast cancer.
It has been suggested that aluminium is a cause of Alzheimer's disease, as some brain plaques have been found to contain the metal.
Research in this area has been inconclusive; accumulation may be a consequence of the Alzheimer's damage, not the cause.
In any event, if there is any toxicity it must be via a very specific mechanism, since total human exposure to the element in the form of naturally occurring clay in soil and dust is enormously large over a lifetime.
Toxicity symptoms and exposure sources
- Linked to Alzheimer's disease
- Linked to bone disease
- Tin can poisoning
- Drinking water
- Foil poisoning
- 1 Colour strip on box of the kit
- 1 Test Instruction Sheet
- 1 Test-tube
- 1 vial with clear cap - Reagent 1
- 1 vial with red cap - Reagent 2
- 1 vial with yellow cap - Reagent 3
Preparation (full instructions included with the test kit)
- Remove the 3 vials from the large test tube.
- In the empty large test-tube, add 5ml volume of the sample solution (water, urine, etc) to be tested for into the test tube
- The solution is now ready for testing
How to test for aluminium levels in children and adults, full instructions included with the test kit
- Add content from blue-cap vial (reagent 1) to the large test-tube containing the solution to be tested.
- Close the large test-tube and shake the combined solutions for 2 to 3 minutes;
- Add the content in the clear-cap vial (reagent 2) to the combined solutions in the large test-tube;
- Close the large test-tube and shake;
- Add the content in the yellow-cap vial (reagent 3) to the large test-tube;
- Close the large test-tube and shake;
- Let the large test-tube with all the combined solutions stand for 5 minutes;
- Compare the resultant colour of the combined solution to be tested in the large test-tube to the colour strip provided.
NB. Please be careful not to cause any foam to be formed when shaking the test tube
A colour change will indicate contamination, compare with chart provided. (chart on label of kit).
Result is measured accurately in parts per million.
Tests the presence of ions to a high degree of accuracy to detect contamination in urine and (oxide water poisoning).
Please keep the test kit in a safe place away from the reach of children or pets.
Once the test has been completed dispose of the solution safely by flushing down the toilet.
The contents of the kit should not come in to contact with food or consumables.
Wash hands after use.
