Amino Acids: The Bodyís Fundamental Building BlocksAmino acids make up proteins found in every tissue of the body. They play a major role in nearly every chemical process that affects both physical and mental function. As a result, amino acids have more diverse functions than any other nutrient group, including:
- Cellular energy production
- Formation of ligaments, tendons, and bones
- Formation of antibodies
- Formation and regulation of enzymes and blood transport proteins
Urine Amino Acids
Urine amino acid analysis is better for discriminating the metabolic effects of short-term (24 to 48 hour) dietary changes than is plasma analysis. Conversely, urine analysis requires more rigorous dietary control than plasma analysis in order to give an accurate picture of a patientís steady-state amino acid sufficiency and metabolism.
Urine 40 Profile
The urine amino acid profile reports levels of essential amino acids and their derivatives in categories. Functional vitamin and mineral deficiencies and diagnosis of metabolic disorders, including neuroendocrine, muscle wasting, and bone loss, can be determined from a urine amino acid analysis. A 24-hour urine collection gives the most accurate analysis of urine amino acids.
