Description:The NutrEval Profile consists of:

Metabolic Analysis measuring 39 key organic acids to evaluate gastrointestinal function,cellular energy production, neurotransmitter processing, and functional need for vitamins,minerals, and co-factors.

Plasma Amino Acid analysis measuring 38 amino acids to evaluate dietary protein adequacy,digestion, absorption, amino acid transport, metabolic impairments, and nutritional deficits;including essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

Essential & Metabolic Fatty Acid assessment measures the levels of fatty acids in red blood cell membranes that affect cellular communication and the inflammatory cascade.

Elemental Analysis in red blood cells is a reliable means to identify short-term toxic metal exposure and to evaluate intracellular nutrient mineral status.

Oxidative Stress Analysis is a sensitive tool to evaluate the body’s anti-oxidant reserves, the presence of oxidative injury, and CoQ10.
