.

The organic acids test is a simple urine test that looks at biomarkers from various metabolic pathways. These biomarkers give an overview of several major systems in the body and an analysis of nutritional deficiencies in the body. The organic acid test is a nutritional test providing insights into the body’s cellular metabolic processes. Organic acids are metabolic intermediates that are produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, or intestinal microbial activity. Marked accumulation of specific organic acids detected in urine often signals a metabolic inhibition or block. The metabolic block may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up or drug effect.

The organic acid metabolic and environmental pollutant panel is the most comprehensive assessment in the essence that it covers several major systems in the body looking at all other organic acid profiles. This useful test panel covers organic acid panels 4016, 4013, 4015, 4018, 4014 all out of one single spot urine collection.
