The Effect of Cold Plasma on pH, Creatine, and the Concentration of the Most Trace Elements in Human's Nails by Using X-ray Fluorescent Method
Keywords:Microwave plasma, XRF, Trace elements, PH, Creatine, humans nails
The aim of this study is to determine the effect of cold plasma on nails pH, creatine levels and the accumulative of some trace elements in humans nails. Creatine levels in the blood, as well as pH and trace elements, were measured before and after (1, 2) months of plasma exposure in both gender (men and women) between the ages of 22 and 25 years. Nails are exposed to cold plasma with a voltage of (175 volts) and (2 gas flow). After one month of exposure, there was no significant change in the levels of all parameters, but after 2 months, the concentration of creatine and pH had reached a near- neutral value. In both men and women, calcium concentration increased and showed a positive response to cold plasma, while the vanadium element concentration did not change over time and remained stable at (7.3×10-4). The results clearly suggest that men respond more than women. The best results were obtained after two-month period of exposure.
