The Amino Acid Analysis, Plasma measures levels of key amino acids in blood. Amino acid metabolism may be compromised by common lifestyle and dietary factors, which may result in inadequate levels of amino acids. Plasma amino acid analysis is favored in conditions where the supply of amino acids and precursors is critical, such as in mood and neurobehavioral disorders. The complete Amino Acid Analysis, Plasma analyzes over 40 analytes and includes:

  • Plasma Amino Acid Analysis
  • Nutritionally Essential Amino Acids
  • Nonessential Protein Amino Acids
  • Intermediary Metabolites

The Amino Acid Analysis, Plasma report configuration provides for easy interpretation and clinically actionable results and includes a handy Suggested Supplement Schedule allowing for personalized recommendations based on test results, and an Interpretation-At-A-Glance page that provides facts on nutrient function, causes and complications of their deficiencies, as well as dietary sources
