Amino acids, known as the “building blocks” of proteins, are found in every tissue of the body. They play a major role in nearly every chemical process that affects both physical and mental function including the formation of ligaments, tendons, bones, as well as antibodies and regulation of enzymes and blood transport proteins. Twenty different amino acids are used to synthesize proteins.
The 20 Blood spot Amino Acid Profile can illuminate problems in amino acid absorption by determining essential amino acid imbalances from a simple finger stick. This profile is a great option for clinicians unable to draw blood and easy enough for the patient to collect in the comfort of their own home. A formula for a customised amino acid blend is also provided with every test result for individually formulated treatment.
