Quick Test Kit for Iron sensitive (Fe) (1 test)
£24.99 Inc VAT (£20.83 Ex VAT)
Iron is the cheapest and one of the most abundant of all metals. The pure metal is not often encountered in commerce, but is usually alloyed with carbon or other metals. Pure Iron is very reactive chemically, and rapidly corrodes, especially in moist air or at elevated temperatures. Iron is primarily obtained from the minerals hematite (Fe2O3) and magnetite (Fe3O4). Huge amounts of iron are used to make steel, an alloy of iron and carbon.
This multi-purpose test kit tests not only the presence or absence but also gives an indication of the amount in parts per million (ppm) in water, the body and a wide range of materials.
Suitable for: urine, water; to test the substances which are not in solution, preparation can be made to convert them into solution for testing, this includes dust, dirt, paint, rice, milk, food, dishes, glasses
This non-invasive test helps detect harmful activities within the body through urine.
- Iron does not occur in nature in useful metallic form.
- Iron ore is the term applied to a natural iron-bearing mineral in which the content of iron is sufficient to be commercially usable. Metallic iron, from which steel is derived, must be extracted from iron ore.
Potential exposure to iron can happen:
- Thousands of products having various chemical composition, forms, and sizes are made of iron and steel by casting, forging, and rolling processes.
- Good plant sources of iron include dried fruits, whole grains (including wholemeal bread), nuts, green leafy vegetables, seeds and pulses. Other foods rich in iron but which are usually eaten in smaller amounts include soya flour, parsley, watercress, black molasses and edible seaweeds. The use of ironware when cooking foods also contributes to dietary intake.
- Up to 22% of the iron in meat is absorbed, while only 1-8% is absorbed from eggs and plant foods. If the body stores fall, the rate of iron absorption rises. About 40% of the iron in animal foods is in a form called haem iron, while the remainder, and all the iron in plant foods, is in the less well absorbed non-haem form.
Iron Toxicity Symptoms can include:
- Iron cannot be excreted therefore the excess builds to toxic levels in tissues of major organs such as the liver, heart, pituitary, thyroid, pancreas, lungs, and synovium (joints). These overburdened organs cease to function properly and eventually become diseased.
- chronic fatigue, arthritic pain in joints, loss of libido (sex drive) or impotence, amenorrhea (premature cessation of menstrual cycle), changes in skin color such as jaundice, bronze or gray-olive colored skin, a tan without being in the sun, redness in the palms of the hands, abdominal pain, weight loss, shortness of breath, chest pain, heart arrhythmia, depression, elevated blood sugar, hypothyroidism, enlargement of spleen, elevated liver enzymes (ALT/AST)
The test kit contains an easy-to-read colourchart:
Sensitivity: 0.01, 0.02, 0.03, 0.05, 0.07, 0.1, 0.15, 0.2, 0.25
This test kit is a non-invasive urine testing kit. It is also suitable to test any other reasonably clear solutions where appropriate to do so. It is simple to use at home with full instructions given. It is recommended to read the instructions first before starting the test.
It is recommended to use saliva only if the user wishes to test for mercury or other metals that may be leaking from any amalgam dental fillings. Otherwise, to test for heavy metals in the body, the user should use urine as the sample solution to be tested.
