Advantages of the Organix Basic Profile
Innovative Method – The LC/MS-MS method, which is also used to screen newborns for metabolic disorders, requires very little sample preparation and processing. This technology provides more stability, accuracy, and sensitivity in measuring organic acids at low levels for optimum test results.
Single Urine Specimen – A single overnight urine collection is easy for patients, leading to increased patient compliance.
Follow-up Testing Option – The Organix comprehensive offers an easy and affordable follow-up testing option to monitor targeted therapy in patients when dysbiosis markers are unneeded.
Why use an organic acids test?
Organic acids are metabolic intermediates produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, and intestinal microbial activity. Accumulation of specific organic acids in urine often signals a metabolic inhibition or block. This abnormality may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up, or drug effect. An organic acids urine test helps reveal activity and changes at the metabolic level, helping practitioners discover hidden issues and pinpoint where the therapeutic focus is needed.
From a single urine specimen, the Organix Comprehensive Profile provides important information in the areas of:
Vitamin and mineral insufficiencies
Amino acid insufficiencies like carnitine and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC)
Oxidative damage and antioxidant sufficiency markers
Indicators to assess detoxification sufficiency
The best functional markers of B-complex deficiency
Neurotransmitter metabolites to assess central nervous system (CNS) function
Mitochondrial energy production assessment via citric acid cycle components
Methylation sufficiency status
Lipoic acid and CoQ10 sufficiency markers
The Organix Profiles can provide important information for treating certain conditions, including:
Blood sugar dysregulation
Multiple chemical sensitivity
