Some selected blood tonics obtained from two geographical locations were analyzed for their levels of heavy metals: iron, lead, manganese, chromium, nickel, cobalt, arsenic, copper and zinc. The blood tonics usually in the liquid form were first digested before analyzed The analyses were performed using an atomic absorption spectroscopy (VARIAN AA240 FS) nuclear reactor at Ghana Atomic Energy Commission (GAEC) at Kwabenya. The levels of the toxic metals such as lead, arsenic, chromium and cadmium were found to be low in the selected blood tonics.
