Metabolic Analysis Profile (MAP) (Organic Acids)

The Metabolic Analysis Profile (MAP) is an important clinical tool for treating imbalances underlying metabolic, nutritional, and neurological disorders. This test assesses four main areas of metabolism: gastrointestinal function and dysbiosis markers, cellular energy production, neurotransmitter metabolites and an assessment of nutrient sufficiency. Using test results, practitioners can design comprehensive, customised therapies to restore optimal metabolic health.
