Metabolomix Personalized Nutrition

The Metabolomix+ is one of the most comprehensive functional and nutritional assessments available on the market today. It’s designed to help practitioners identify root causes of dysfunction and provide a personalized, systems-based approach to help you overcome chronic conditions and live a healthier life.

The Metabolomix+ is a unique combination of nutritional tests that provides an analysis of key nutritional biomarkers. A first morning void (FMV) urine collection and bloodspot finger stick, the Metabolomix+ nutritional test is a non-invasive way to assess the body’s functional need for antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, digestive support, fatty acids, and amino acids

What is a Functional Nutrition Assessment?

Marked accumulation of organic acids measured in urine can signal a metabolic inhibition or block. The metabolic block may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up, or drug effect.

Enzymes that are responsible for metabolizing organic acids are vitamin and mineral dependent. With this, elevations in organic acids can reflect a functional need for these nutrients on a cellular and biochemical level, even despite normal serum levels.1

Who Would Benefit from Metabolomix?

Several diseases are associated with abnormal organic acid, amino acid, and fatty acid levels such as depression, anxiety, cardiovascular disease, neurocognitive decline, diabetes, cancer, anorexia, and many others.12-15
