The Organix® Comprehensive Profile is an advanced nutritional test providing insights into the body’s cellular metabolic processes using organic acids. Once metabolic blocks are identified, they can be treated nutritionally allowing customized and individualized tailoring of treatment that maximize patient health benefits and leads to improved health outcomes. Additionally, children’s reference ranges are designed to provide more accurate pediatric nutritional evaluations.
The Organix Comprehensive nutritional test is ideal for patients who may suffer from:
- Weight issues
- Sleep abnormalities
- Gut Problems
- Chemical sensitivities
Organic Acids and Nutritional Testing
Organic acids are metabolic intermediates that are produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter 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 nutritional test profile provides vital information from a single, simple, urine specimen. This organic acid 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
- Neurotransmitter metabolites
- Mitochondrial energy production
- Methylation sufficiency
- Lipoic acid and CoQ10 status
- Markers for bacterial and yeast overgrowth
Advantages of the Organix® Comprehensive Profile
Extensive Analyte List – The Organix® Comprehensive Profile is a nutritional test that 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 is easy for patients, leading to increased patient compliance.
- Turn Around Time Approximately 14 days
- This Test is Not Available In New York
