A complete quantitative organic acids test. The Organix provides a view into the body’s cellular metabolic processes and the efficiency of metabolic function.Identifying metabolic blocks or problems with detoxification, gut dysbiosis, or oxidative stress that can be treated nutritionally allows for individual tailoring of interventions. Targeted treatment can help maximize patient responses and lead to improved patient outcomes.
Why use an organic acid test?
Organic acids are metabolic intermediates produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, and intestinal microbial activity.
Accumulation of specific organic acids in urine often signals a metabolic inhibition or block. This abnormality may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up, or drug effect. Testing for organic acids helps reveal activity and changes at the metabolic level, helping practitioners discover hidden issues and pinpoint where therapeutic focus is needed.
The Organix Profile provides important information in the areas of:
Vitamin and mineral insufficiencies
Amino acid (protein) insufficiencies like carnitine and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC)
Oxidative damage and antioxidant sufficiency markers
Indicators to assess detoxification sufficiency
The best functional markers of B-complex deficiency
Neurotransmitter metabolites to assess central nervous system (CNS) function
Mitochondrial energy production assessment via citric acid cycle components
Methylation sufficiency status
Lipoic acid and CoQ10 sufficiency markers
Specific dysbiosis markers for bacterial and yeast overgrowth
It can provide important information for treating certain conditions
