The Organix® Organic Acids Test is a comprehensive nutritional test. It does not measure absolute values of nutrients but provides insights into metabolic products (organic acids) which gives a view into your body’s cellular metabolic processes. Identifying metabolic blocks that can be treated nutritionally allows individual tailoring of interventions that maximize your response to treatment and leads to improved health outcomes.
Who should order an Organic Acids Test?
The Organix® Comprehensive nutritional test is ideal for you if you suffer from:
- Weight issues
- Sleep abnormalities
- Digestive problems (we recommend also conducting a SIBO breath test or a Complete Microbiome Mapping)
- Stress, Depression or Anxiety (we also recommend conducting a hormonal assessment)
- Fatigue (we also recommend conducting a DUTCH Hormone Profile)
- Chronic health problems
- Worried about toxin exposure (we also recommend conducting a Hair Mineral Heavy Metal Test)
What are Organic Acids?
Organic acids are metabolic intermediates that are produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter (brain chemicals) breakdown, or intestinal microbial activity. Marked accumulation of specific organic acids detected in urine often signals a metabolic inhibition or block. The metabolic block may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up or drug effect. Several of the biomarkers are markers of intestinal bacterial or yeast overgrowth.
The Organix® Comprehensive Organic Acids Test provides vital patient information from a single urine specimen. This organic acids nutritional test is valuable for determining:
Functional vitamin and mineral status
Amino acid insufficiencies like carnitine and NAC
Oxidative damage and antioxidant need
Phase I & Phase II detoxification capacity
Functional B-complex vitamin need
Mitochondrial energy production
Lipoic acid and CoQ10 status
Markers for bacterial and yeast overgrowth
Organic Acid Test and Clinical Solutions:
Full review of the your biochemical status and metabolic pathway flow can help identify areas of greatest concern. Follow-up nutritional testing can monitor the effectiveness of selected treatments.
Advantages of the Organix® Comprehensive Profile
Extensive Analyte List – The Organix® Comprehensive Profile is a nutritional test which contains one of the most extensive biomarker lists in the industry. Including nutritional markers such as Quinolinate, D-Arabinitol, and 8-Hydroxy-2’deoxyguanosine, the Organix® offers great value.
Innovative Method – The LC/MS-MS method, which is also used to screen newborns for metabolic disorders, requires very little sample preparation and processing. This technology provides more stability, accuracy, and sensitivity in measuring organic acids at low levels for optimum test results.
Single Urine Specimen – A single overnight urine collection (collected from your first urination of the day) is all that is required.
A test costs $440 (not including a consultation)
