Amino Acids 20 Profile - Blood Spot


A Finger-Stick Amino Acid Profile for Personalized Supplementation

Featuring an Expanded Amino Acids Panel

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 20 Profile is a finger-stick amino acid test that can illuminate problems in amino acid absorption and metabolism by determining amino acid imbalances in the nine essential amino acids, four conditionally essential amino acids, and seven additional 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 20 Profile Bloodspot assesses:

  • Essential Amino Acids
    • Limiting Amino Acids
    • Branched Chain Amino Acids
    • Other Essential Amino Acids
    • Conditionally Essential Amino Acids
  • Amino Acid Functional Categories
    • Vascular Function
    • Neurotransmitters and Precursors
    • Sulfur Amino Acids (Glutathione-related)
    • Urea Cycle and Ammonia Detoxification
    • Ratios

This test is useful for

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