Amino Acid Profile (Urine)

Test and Address Amino Acids to Improve Exercise Performance, Mood, Detoxification, and Energy Levels

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, but many people never learn that they fuel cellular energy production, they are converted into neurotransmitters, and they are vital for healthy detoxification. Precision Point Diagnostics’ comprehensive Amino Acid Profile measures 43 amino acids including the essential amino acids, such as tryptophan, methionine, and lysine. It goes much further, looking at nonessential amino acids such as tyrosine, glycine, glutamine and more, which can give crucial clinical information about a patient’s neurological function, connective tissue synthesis, and glutathione precursors. The specimen can be collected as a first morning urine or over 24 hours.

The Amino Acid Profile provides fundamental information about nutrient adequacy, including the quality and quantity of dietary protein, digestive disorders, and vitamin and mineral deficiencies—particularly folic acid, B12, B6 metabolism, zinc, and magnesium. It provides important diagnostic information about hepatic and renal function, availability of precursors of neurotransmitters, detoxification capacity, ammonia clearance, susceptibility to occlusive arterial disease (homocystine), and many inherent disorders in amino acid metabolism.

A Turn-Key System for Restoring Your Patient’s Amino Acid Levels

This profile comes with a custom interpretive report to facilitate discussion and understanding of the test results. It also includes a customized amino acid supplement formula, based on the patient’s amino acid levels. With testing and individualized treatment to correct amino acid levels, your patient may feel marked improvements in brain function, mood, athletic performance, and overall wellness in a matter of weeks.
