Quick Description:One of the most valuable single tests a human can take to assess nutritional status and multiple functions of metabolism, energy production, inflammation, and detoxification.
The Metabolomix+® Comprehensive Profile is perhaps the most valuable single test you can take because it provides an incredible amount of information on many aspects of physiology and metabolism, such as nutritional status, energy production, fat and carb metabolism, detoxification, brain function, oxidative stress, inflammation, and microbial infections. A single urine sample + bloodspot sample is all that’s required for this uniquely valuable metabolic test. The sample is taken in the privacy of your home and then express-mailed back to the lab for analysis.
The Metabolomix+® Comprehensive nutritional test is valuable for determining:
What’s Included in the Metabolomix+® Test?
The Metabolomix+® Test provides a convenient overview of nutrient needs along with a detailed report of nutritional recommendations for antioxidants, B-vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, GI support, and amino acids.
It measures your mitochondrial function, specifically the Citric Acid cycle, which is how your body makes cellular energy. Each step of this process requires certain vitamins and nutrients. By identifying which aspects of the cycle are not working optimally, Dr. Jamie can pinpoint what nutrients you may need to adequately fuel the trillions of energy production “power plants” inside your cells. If you have fatigue issues this may be the key to identifying why.
Methylation is a simple but extremely important biochemical process to ensure our genes work properly.
When optimal methylation occurs, our cardiovascular, neurological, reproductive, and detoxification systems work as they should. Methylation is also necessary for DNA and neurotransmitter production, hormone and fat metabolism, nutrient utilization, cellular energy, and liver and eye health. When methylation is impaired, all those critical body systems can dysfunction. Cancer, birth defects, toxic overload, inflammation, heart disease, and autoimmune diseases are typical examples of what happens when the methylation process does not run smoothly. Methylation requires B6, B12, and folate to occur efficiently. The Organic Acids test measures how well your cells are using these B vitamins and folate to fuel the methylation process.
Oxidative stress is one of the driving factors behind inflammation, cellular damage, and DNA damage. The Metabolomix+® Test can measure glutathione recycling and the body’s ability to produce Co-enzyme Q10.
The Metabolomix+® Test measures fat metabolism. If you are having trouble losing weight, you may be lacking key nutrients that are needed to convert fat into energy.
The Metabolomix+® Test also measures carbohydrate metabolism. If you have fatigue, weight loss issues, or poor blood sugar control, or if you’re an athlete wanting to optimize performance, you’ll find this section invaluable.
Bacterial Infections and Yeast overgrowth
Bacterial and yeast infections are causes of systemic inflammation and are prime suspects for digestive problems, UTIs, brain fog, skin disorders, fatigue, anxiety, and many other health issues. The Metabolomix+® Test provides insight on whether or not these infections are an issue for you.
The Metabolomix+® Test measures the metabolites of the neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin and adrenaline. This can help to identify the cause behind brain and mood issues like anxiety, depression, brain fog, disrupted concentration, poor memory, and insomnia.
Essential and Metabolic Fatty Acids Markers
Omega 3 Fatty Acids are essential for brain function and cardiovascular health and are anti-inflammatory
Omega 6 Fatty Acids are involved in the balance of inflammation
Omega 9 Fatty Acids are important for brain growth, nerve cell myelin, and reducing inflammation
Saturated Fatty Acids are involved in liproprotein metabolism and adipose tissue inflammation
Monounsaturated Fats include omega 7 fats and unhealthy trans fats
Delta-6 Desaturase Activity assesses efficiency of this enzyme to metabolize omega 6’s and omega 3’s
Cardiovascular Risk includes specific ratios and the Omega 3 Index
