What is the Amino Acid Analysis, FMV?

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. Intervention with amino-acid supplementation and nutrient cofactors may be effective in conditions associated with inefficient amino acid metabolism.

Genova’s Amino Acid Analysis, FMV measures levels of key amino acids in urine. The amino acid levels in urine represent recent dietary intake and is most useful for assessing vitamin/mineral cofactors that affect amino acid metabolism.

The complete Amino Acid Analysis, FMV includes:

  • Nutritionally Essential Amino Acids (11 analytes)
  • Nonessential Protein Amino Acids (10 analytes)
  • Intermediary Metabolites (14 analytes)
    • B-Vitamin Markers
    • Urea Cycle Markers
    • Glycine/Serine Metabolites
  • Dietary-Peptide Related Markers (4 analytes)

This test is useful for

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