The Amino Acid Profile uses a systems-biology approach to evaluate essential and non-essential amino acids in plasma. Plasma amino acids generally exhibit low variation within individuals, with essential amino acids maintaining a relatively steady state. Excessive or insufficient amino acid levels may be the result of an imbalanced diet or changes in requirements due to genetic variants, disease, or impaired metabolism.
The Amino Acid Profile aids in identifying nutrient status, imbalances, and the flow of catabolic pathways. In addition, amino acid testing assesses key functional areas of support, such as meat intake and urea processing, which can help practitioners target protocols to optimize patient outcomes.
