Organic Acids Test For The Citric Acid Cycle
Do you have a citric acid metabolic imbalance?
Organic acids play a very important part in how our body works and is responsible for many of the metabolic (metabolism) processes that keep you healthy, when one or more of these organic acids becomes out of balance they can cause havoc with your health both physically and mentally. Testing for organic acids imbalances with the citric acid cycle test is a great way to get an overview of how your citric acid cycle is working and if there are any imbalances in your citric acid cycle. This test is extremely useful for determining the correct energy conversion by metabolizing carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. The citric acid cycle is a critical component for macro-nutrient metabolism and energy conversion for all 3 of these key nutrients.

About The Organic Acids Citric Acids Test
The organic acids citric acids test is widely considered one of the most valuable metabolism tests available due to wide range of acids tested. The test assesses a wide range of cellular processes involved in the citric acid cycle. By evaluating organic acid levels and pinpointing the metabolic dysfunctions occurring at the cellular level, a comprehensive, customised treatment strategy can be made for each individual. The test covers the following important citric acids
- Pyruvic acid
- Citric acid
- Cis-aconitic acid
- Isocitric acid
- a-ketoglutaric acid
- Fumaric acid
- Malic Acid
An imbalance of any one or more of the above acids involved in the citric acid cycle can cause severe energy production problem leading to many complicated and hard to diagnose health disorders.
