Description: 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
Dietary Peptide Related Markers

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, an Interpretation-At-A-Glance page that provides facts on nutrient function, causes and complications of their deficiencies, as well as dietary sources
