BIOCHEMISTRY: Our Extensive Blood & Urine Profile
One of the best values in nutritional medicine and preparing for heavy metal detoxification our biochemistry profile helps determine your nutritional status and ability to detoxify at the cell level.
Why Order Our Comprehensive Blood & Urine Profile?
Identifies key nutritionally modifiable risk factors for a variety of health issues.
- Fatty Acid imbalances which can lead to chronic inflammation. Current research finds levels of specific fatty acids to be strongly correlated to cardiovascular disease CVD.
- High Fibrinogen is associated with increased risk of clots and CVD.
- Homocysteine is an important risk factor for not only CVD, but stroke and dementia as well.
- Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is essential for proper mitochondrial function and energy use. It also acts as an antioxidant. Cardiac cells have high mitochondrial demand. Statins can decrease CoQ10 levels.
- Fasting Insulin is an indicator of insulin resistance. Hyperinsulinaemia has been associated with a cluster of CVD risk factors.
- Insufficient Antioxidant Status is associated with increased oxidation. Oxidative damage is believed to play a role in heart and vascular disease by promoting inflammation.
Identifies Toxic Elements/Heavy Metals
Some elements can accumulate in tissues causing toxic effects. Metal toxicity is a significant environmental health concern. A toxic load of Aluminum, lead, cadmium, mercury or arsenic is capable of rendering considerable damage to the brain and nervous system, particularly in children. Whole blood testing generally reflects increased or recent exposure to toxic elements.
Identifies Critical Risk Factors Beyond Conventional Serum Lipid Markers, including:
