ABSTRACT. Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Region (KhMAO), being part of the Tyumen Region, belongs to the territories equated to the Far North, and is the most powerful resource base in Russia, primarily oil and gas production. This territory is characterized by extreme natural and climatic conditions: a long cold period, a shortage of ultraviolet radiation, sharp changes in the parameters of meteorological conditions, a high electromagnetic background, dry air, an extremely low level of air ionization, etc. In the structure of the population of the Russian Federation, the share of the elderly population is currently about 1/3. One of the main hypotheses of aging is the theory of oxidative stress. Purpose of the work: to study the content of Cu, Zn and Se in the hair of elderly people living in the KhMAO: trace elements with an antioxidant spectrum of action. Objective: 85 elderly patients (60-74 years old). Among them, 33 (38,8%) are men and 52 (61,2%) are women were examined. The concentration of trace elements in the hair was determined by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. Elderly residents of the North have a Cu deficit of 40%, Zn - 26%, Se - 42% of cases. n order to increase life expectancy and improve its quality in older citizens living in the northern regions of Russia, after the elemental analysis of hair, it is necessary to carry out a point correction of the elemental status using special monopreparations containing the appropriate trace elements and food products enriched with them.
