Amino Acids Analysis, Urine


The Amino Acids Analysis nutritional test helps to identify metabolic imbalances underlying many chronic disorders. Specifically, this nutritional test evaluates dietary protein adequacy and assimilation, as well as metabolic imbalances underlying many chronic disorders. With the precise results and comprehensive commentary provided, nutritional deficiencies, metabolic impairments, and amino acid transport disorders can be accurately identified and corrected. The Importance of Amino Acids: Amino acids are essential to life. In free form or linked as peptides they assume important roles in such activities as:

  • Neurotransmitter function
  • Pain control
  • pH regulation
  • Detoxification
  • Cholesterol metabolism
  • Control of inflammation
Amino acids comprise the building blocks of all of the body´s structural tissues and hormones. All of these compounds utilize, or derive from, the essential amino acids provided by the diet. Determination of the adequacy of amino acids, proper balance between them, and conversion capability are of paramount importance in preventing illness and getting to the root of many chronic disorders. Amino Acids Analysis nutritional test:
  1. Employs state-of-the-art high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to perform the most comprehensive and sensitive assay available
  2. Utilizes 24-hour urine, first morning void (FMV) or fasting plasma
  3. Measures more than 40 analytes, providing information related to a wide spectrum of metabolic and nutritional disorders such as:
  • Protein inadequacy
  • Gastrointestinal imbalances
  • Inflammatory responses
  • Detoxification impairments
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Ammonia toxicity
  • Food and chemical sensitivities
  • Depression or behavioral disorders, including autism and ADHD
  • Neurological dysfunction
  • Inborn errors of metabolism
Clinical utility of the Amino Acids Analysis nutritional test: Measured biomarkers are grouped on the report into functional categories. These include:
  • Nutritionally essential and semi-essential amino acids
  • Dietary peptide-related markers
  • Non-essential protein amino acids
  • Intermediary metabolites and diagnostic markers
A Supplementation Schedule is provided with the report, along with suggested replacement amounts. This schedule can then be used by a compounding pharmacist to formulate a customized blend of amino acids for the patient. In addition, an Interpretation at a Glance is provided with each report. Although extensive commentary accompanies the report, this practical guide allows the practitioner to quickly spot problem areas in the patient. Scores for the likelihood of vitamin and mineral insufficiencies as well as defects in particular organ systems are listed. Test Type: Urine Test Please contact us for pricing




Bloodspot Amino Acids 11 Profile


The Bloodspot Amino Acid Profile can illuminate problems in amino acid absorption by determining essential amino acid imbalances from a simple finger stick. This profile is a great option for clinicians unable to draw blood and easy enough for the patient to collect in the comfort of their own home. A formula for a customized amino acid blend is also provided with every test result for individually formulated treatment. This profile is available testing 11 analytes or 20 analytes. Please click on the 'Analytes' tab for a complete listing of analytes to see which profile is the best option for you. Why is amino acid testing important? Amino acids, known as the "building blocks" of proteins, are found in every tissue of the body. They play a major role in nearly every chemical process that affects both physical and mental function including the formation of ligaments, tendons, bones, as well as antibodies and regulation of enzymes and blood transport proteins. Twenty different amino acids are used to synthesize proteins. Why use a Bloodspot test? With just a simple finger stick, these easy-to-use blood spot tests offer a non-invasive alternative to a blood draw in determining amino acid status. Advantages of Bloodspot testing:

  • Easy to implement in any practice
  • Does not require venipuncture
  • Cost-effective testing and therapy
  • Easy enough for patients to use at home
  • Simple and economical option for follow-up testing
