The Metametrix ION (Individual•Optimal•Nutrition) Profile is a combination of analyses that measures levels of organic acids, fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Over time, functional nutritional inadequacies can result in a variety of chronic health conditions. The ION Profile can help determine the basis for these chronic health conditions.
•Organix Profile - reveals the nutritional and metabolic basis of patient symptoms, including anxiety, mood changes, and immune responses.
•Amino Acid Profile - determines essential amino acid imbalances that affect both physical and mental function.
•Nutrient and Toxic Element Profiles - identifies a toxic burden, which can render considerable damage to the brain and nervous system as well as sufficiency of nutrient elements.
•Fatty Acid Profile - helps strike the right balance of fatty acids that can impact health and development.
•Antioxidant Vitamins - measures a total body status of antioxidant nutrients and nutritional deficiencies.
•Coenzyme Q10 - measures total body status of this antioxidant nutrient and energy pathway cofactor.
•Lipid Peroxides - measures total serum lipid peroxidation, an indication of whole body free radical activity.
•Homocysteine - identifies total homocysteine in plasma, and elevated levels are an independent risk factor for premature cardiovascular disease and atherothrombotic cerebrovascular disease.
