Abstract

Trace elements, despite their high concentration in the human body, plays a very important role in biochemical processes. Observations made in different regions of the world show that there is some connection between the consumption of human micro and macro contained in food and the incidence of certain diseases. Per person affects the whole complex of factors, and the content of inorganic elements is only one aspect of these relations, but unquestionably biologically active substances of plants is that they are contained in the plant material in natural balanced complexes and are not alien to the human body.

The object of the study were the flowers, leaves and grass sow thistle field, as well as flowers, leaves and grass sow thistle collected during flowering in the Kiev region (near Kiev in 2014). Quantitative and qualitative determination of macro- and microelements was carried out using x-ray fluorescent spectroscopy analysis on the device ElvaX-med (Ukraine). There were identified four microcell, 6 trace elements and 2 ultramicroelements.

The largest total content of elements defined in the grass sow thistle field – 2543.91 mg/100 g, the lowest in the leaves of sow thistle field – 1037.56 mg/100 g. Also, in the test objects identified iron, zinc and bromine. Majority microelements in the grass sow thistle are iron – 13.93 mg/100 g and zinc – 2.74 mg/100 g. Majority microelements in the grass sow thistle field are iron – 15.31 mg/100 g and bromine – 10.20 mg/100 g.
