Organic Acids Test
Organic acids are metabolic byproducts of cellular metabolism that are produced during energy production, neurotransmitter breakdown, detoxification and intestinal microbial activity. Measuring these biomarkers can provide a lot of important information about your overall health. The Organic Acids Test analyzes over 70 biomarkers, in a simple, non-invasive, at-home urine test and can give you great insight into yeast and bacterial overgrowth, vitamin and antioxidant levels, fatty acid metabolism, neurotransmitter levels, oxalate levels, mitochondrial function, oxidative stress, and detoxification.
Why this test is important:
People with chronic health conditions often excrete abnormal amounts of organic acids in their urine. The Organic Acids Test can reveal important problems with metabolism, nutrient deficiencies, detoxification pathways, microorganism overgrowth, and neurotransmitter balance. By pinpointing the underlying system dysfunction, the root cause(s) can be addressed. This test can help determine the need for dietary modifications, antioxidant and nutrient support, oxalate reduction, and other therapies.
Who should be tested:
Organic acid testing can be very helpful for the following health conditions:
- Neuropsychiatric and neurological conditions
- Mitochondrial and genetic disorders
- Chronic gastrointestinal and inflammatory disorders
What does this test measure:
The Organic Acids Test is a comprehensive assessment of 74 unique urinary metabolites, providing patients with an accurate evaluation of:
- Yeast and bacteria overgrowth
- Vitamin and antioxidant levels
- Fatty acid metabolism
- Neurotransmitter levels
- Mitochondrial function
- Inborn errors of metabolism (including oxalate levels)
- Detoxification and oxidative stress
All tests are authorized and reviewed by a physician from our partner laboratory.Sample Test Report
