The Organix Comprehensive Profile offers a complete quantitative organic acids test, providing data on the body's cellular metabolic processes and the efficiency of metabolic functions.
Organic acids are metabolic intermediates that are produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, and intestinal microbial activity. The accumulation of specific organic acids detected in urine often signals a metabolic inhibition or blockage. The metabolic blockage may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up, or negative drug effect. Several of the analytes measured are markers of intestinal bacterial or yeast overgrowth. Identifying metabolic blocks that can be treated nutritionally allows individual tailoring of interventions that maximize patient responses and lead to improved patient outcomes.
