Organic Acid Test
Genova Lab Phone Number: 800-522-4762
Purpose of Test
Organic acids are metabolic intermediates that are produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, or intestinal microbial activity. Marked accumulation of specific organic acids detected in urine often signals 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. Several of the biomarkers are markers of intestinal bacterial or yeast overgrowth.
The Genova Nutrval FMV nutritional test profile provides vital patient information from a single urine specimen. This organic acids nutritional test is valuable for determining:
Functional vitamin and mineral status
Amino acid insufficiencies like carnitine and NAC
Oxidative damage and antioxidant need
Phase I & Phase II detoxification capacity
Functional B-complex vitamin need
Mitochondrial energy production
Lipoic acid and CoQ10 status
Markers for bacterial and yeast overgrowth
