What this test will show
This test evaluates overall nutritional status, helping you understand if there are deficiencies and nutritional needs, testing 88 analytes in total.
Nutrient deficiencies can lead to functional imbalances which can impair many processes in the body, methylation being one such critical enzymatic process. These markers therefore provide an insight into your body’s functionality and disease risk. Methylation capability can in turn be assessed by purchasing a separate test – click here for the Methylation Test 3534, which can also be extended to include additional markers to show genetic variations which can impact on methylation ability.
The ONE test shows antioxidant vitamins, B vitamins, minerals, amino acids and organic acids. Organic acids give an indication of how well we digest proteins, fats and carbohydrates, and therefore whether we have sufficient nutrients to generate energy and provide the building blocks for healthy cell function.
The test also includes some detoxification markers which identifies exposure and sensitivity to environmental toxins, and the body’s detoxification capabilities.
The test also includes analysis of neurotransmitter metabolites, which identifies nutrient deficiencies which can cause mood swings, anxiety, depression and mental dysperceptions.
