Amino Acids 11 Profile - Blood Spot


What is the Amino Acids 11 Blood Spot Profile?

Amino acids play central roles as building blocks of proteins and as intermediates in metabolism. Amino-acid metabolism may be compromised by common lifestyle and dietary factors, which may result in inadequate levels of essential amino acids and/or missing nutrient cofactors required for effective amino acid metabolism. The Bloodspot Amino Acids 11 Profile is a finger-stick amino acid test that can illuminate problems in basic amino acid absorption by determining amino acid imbalances in the nine essential amino acids and two conditionally essential amino acids. Intervention with a customized amino-acid supplement based on test results may be effective in conditions associated with inefficient amino acid metabolism.

The complete Amino Acids 11 Profile Bloodspot assesses:

  • Essential Amino Acids
    • Limiting Amino Acids
    • Branched Chain Amino Acids
    • Other Essential Amino Acids
    • Conditionally Essential Amino Acids
    • Ratios

This test is useful for

  • Gaining insight into Dietary Protein Intake and Digestion/Absorption
  • Weight Issues/Dietary Guidance
