Complete Evaluation of Key Biomarkers of Metabolism

The Metabolic Analysis Profile is a nutrition test that requires a first morning void (FMV) urine collection to measure organic acids. The report includes personalized micronutrient recommendations for vitamin and mineral cofactors as well as digestive support recommendations based on a patient’s individual biochemical metabolism.

What is an organic acid?
Organic acids are a broad class of compounds formed during fundamental metabolic processes in the body. Metabolic reactions produce these compounds from the digestion of dietary protein, fat, and carbohydrates. The resulting organic acids are used by the body to generate cellular energy and provide many of the building blocks necessary for cell function. Urinary organic acid measurement offers a functional assessment of nutrient status.

Metabolic Analysis Profile testing is effective for patient concerns such as:

  • Mood Disorders
  • Mitochondrial Dysfunction
  • Fatigue
  • Chronic Stress
  • Inflammation

A Nutritional Assay for Personalized Supplementation

Featuring First Morning Void (FMV) Urine Amino Acids

Why Use the Amino Acid Analysis, FMV Profile?
The Amino Acid Analysis, FMV is a nutritional test that evaluates amino acids for advanced insight and targeted
treatment. Amino acid metabolism may be compromised by common lifestyle and dietary factors, which may result in inadequate levels of amino acids. Urine amino acid testing is specifically valuable for assessing vitamin/mineral cofactors that affect amino acid metabolism and provide insight into protein digestion.

Effective for Patients Experiencing
Clinical indications for testing include:

  • Increase the number of foreign compounds entering the bloodstream
    Allow bacterial antigens capable of cross-reacting with host tissue to enter the bloodstream, leading to auto-immune processes
  • Enhance the uptake of toxic compounds that can overwhelm the hepatic detoxification system and lead to an overly sensitized immune system

The Toxic Element Clearance Profile offers an advanced, comprehensive assessment of toxic and potentially toxic elements excreted in the urine. In addition to measuring classic elemental toxins, such as lead and mercury, this profile includes elements used in medical, aerospace, nuclear, and high-tech electronic industries. Use of these potential toxins is increasing because of their growing commercial, industrial, and medical applications. Evidence suggests that chronic toxic element exposure can adversely affect:

  • Energy levels
  • Reproductive function
  • Cancer risk
  • Neurological development and function
  • Respiratory, cardiac, hepatic, and immune functions
  • Cognitive and emotional health
  • Degenerative conditions
