35-Amino Acids – Plasma (Test Code 5040)

Amino acids, known as the “building blocks” of proteins, are found in every tissue of the body. The plasma amino acid 35 test includes evaluation of limiting, branched chain, and essential and non-essential amino acids. It also identifies several functional categories, such as neuroendocrine, vascular, collagen status and detoxification, along with five calculated ratios, and identifies vitamin and mineral insufficiencies.

The following factors can effect changes over time in plasma:
• Chronic dietary intake
• Digestive efficiency
• Hepatic uptake
• Skeletal muscle’s ability to maintain transamination
