Organic Acids Test

The test provides a complete metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health by analysing 70 markers like for vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress and neurotransmitter levels.

Advantages of the Organic Acids Test

  • Gain an in-depth insight into your metabolic functioning
  • Based on the test results we will be able to offer personalised recommendations which may include nutrimental supplements and or dietary changes.
  • Significant improvements in overall well-being such a reduced fatigue, normalised bowel function, increased energy and attention levels, improved concentrations, reducing hyperactivity and reduced abdominal pain.

Why an Organic Acids Test?

The Organic Acids Test can help you with determining the causes of disease development.

This test provides an accurate evaluation of the activity of intestinal yeast such as fungi and a number of important bacteria. Abnormally high levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behaviour disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue and immune function.

These abnormal organic acids can be traced through urine collection and can be caused by amongst others, oral antibiotics use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, acquired infections as well as genetic factors.

The Organic Acids Test also includes markers for vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress and neurotransmitter levels.

What is an Organic Acids Test?

The organic acids test (OAD) provides a complete metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health by analysing 70 markers. Organic acids, also known as metabolites, are the products of our body’s metabolic functioning. Our metabolism is in essence a set of chemical reactions that occur in any living organism to sustain life and is in fact the process of breaking down food components in our body to produce energy.

  • Energy Production Markers: Organic acids involved in the Krebs cycle (citric acid cycle) to evaluate cellular energy production.
    Indicators of mitochondrial function and efficiency.
  • Nutrient Metabolism: Metabolites related to the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Indicators of vitamin deficiencies, such as B vitamins and CoQ10.
  • Detoxification Pathways: Markers of detoxification processes in the liver. Indicators of oxidative stress and antioxidant status.
  • Neurotransmitter Metabolism: Breakdown products of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and catecholamines. Indicators of potential imbalances in brain chemistry and mood disorders.
  • Gut Health: Metabolites produced by intestinal bacteria and yeast. Indicators of dysbiosis, overgrowth of harmful bacteria or yeast, and gut permeability.
  • Oxalate Metabolism: Levels of oxalates, which can contribute to kidney stones and other health issues if elevated.

By measuring the levels of various organic acids in the urine, it provides insights into energy production, nutrient metabolism, detoxification, neurotransmitter balance, gut health, and more. This information can help healthcare providers develop personalized treatment plans and monitor the effectiveness of interventions, contributing to better health outcomes.
