Urinary Metabolic Profile (Metabolically Derived Organic Acids)
Urinary organic acids are derived from the metabolic conversion of dietary proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, in addition to bacterial origin in the gut. These markers provide a unique profile into cellular energy status, neurotransmitter metabolism, nutrient deficiencies, and intestinal bacterial metabolism.
Our comprehensive Urinary Metabolic Profile provides data for 36 key intermediary cellular metabolites serving as markers for the categories of:
Our revolutionary Dip ’N Dry urine collection strip is used to collect a first morning spot specimen for easy and efficient transport. The Dip ’N Dry corrects for many of the pitfalls of a standard liquid analysis where critical acids can degrade substantially (see chart), rendering the results meaningless. These strips MAXIMIZE stability for every analyte, every time, and eliminate the need to refrigerate or freeze urine samples.
