Organic acid testing provides insight into how well patients function metabolically. Practitioners can use insights from the Organic Acid Profile to personalize protocols to help patients improve dysfunctional pathways that may be contributing to current or future disease states.

Benefits of Organic Acid Testing Include:

  • Organic acids are efficiently excreted through the kidneys as end products of metabolism. Evaluating organic acids in urine is a preferred and easy-to-collect testing option.
  • Organic acids are produced endogenously during normal cellular metabolism and require dietary-derived vitamins, minerals, and other compounds as processing cofactors. Organic acid testing provides practitioners with essential clues for targeted supplementation.
  • Catabolic products of essential amino acids in urine may help to identify the flow of dysfunctional metabolic pathways. Amino acid breakdown products can help gain insight into:
    • Nutrient cofactor needs
    • Methylation
    • Catecholamine turnover
    • Glutathione status
    • Level of Inflammation
  • The Organic Acid Profile evaluates imbalances in the Krebs Cycle intermediate organic acids. Understanding imbalances in the Krebs Cycle can help identify location of impaired flow and possible impacts of the pathways.
  • The Organic Acid Profile helps Identify impacts on stress and mood disorders by providing information on neurotransmitter turnover and cortisol levels.
  • Gut bacteria produce organic acids during their metabolic processing. Identification of these unique compounds can indicate potential gut-microbiome imbalances.

Some conditions that warrant testing are:

  • Fatigue
  • Digestive complaints, diarrhea or constipation
  • Brain fog
  • Mood disorders, depression, and anxiety
  • Diabetes and weight-loss issues
  • Sleep issues
  • Sports performance optimization
