NutrEval & NutrEval Plus – Your Health MOT
The NutrEval and NutrEval Plus profiles are the most comprehensive evaluation available to help overcome chronic disease and promote optimal health. The NutrEval profile consists of Metabolic Analysis, Amino Acid, Essential and Metabolic Fatty Acids, Oxidative Stress, Nutrient & Toxic Elements and the NutrEval plus has the addition of the FACTest to assess Overall Food allergy and Intolerance.
This unique profile
- Evaluates overall nutritional status
- Assesses the need for vitamins and minerals
- Provides insight into disease risk
- Concise-Easy Interpretation
- Provides clear, personalised recommendations for supplementation
- B-vitamins Minerals
- Amino acids
What is being measured
The NutrEval Profile consists of
Metabolic Analysis measuring 39 key organic acids to evaluate gastrointestinal function, cellular energy production, neurotransmitter processing, and functional need for vitamins, minerals, and co-factors.
Amino Acid Analysis measuring 38 amino acids to evaluate dietary protein adequacy, digestion, absorption, amino acid transport, metabolic impairments, and nutritional deficits; including essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
Essential & Metabolic Fatty Acid Assessment measures the levels of fatty acids in red blood cell membranes that affect cellular communication and the inflammatory cascade.
Elemental Analysis in red blood cells is a reliable means to identify short-term toxic metal exposure and to evaluate intracellular nutrient mineral status.
Oxidative Stress Analysis is a sensitive tool to evaluate the body’s anti-oxidant reserves, the presence of oxidative injury, and CoQ10.
Homocysteine can be used as a biochemical marker for certain nutritional deficiencies (vitamin B12, folic acid and vitamin B6). It also serves as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease, and is implicated in a number of other conditions.
Vitamin D (25-OH Vitamin D) 25-hydroxycholecalciferol is the principle circulating derivative of vitamin D and the precursor to the active form 1, 25-dihydroxycholecalciferol. As well as playing a vital role in maintaining bone health, Vitamin D is critical for immune function and deficiencies are associated with many serious illnesses.
In addition, the NutrEval Plus includes the FACTestTM which incorporates the latest 3gAllergyTM technology, and a measurement of total IgE antibodies, hence checking for food intolerance and overall food allergy potential.
