The Metabolic Analysis Profile
The Metabolic Analysis Profile is a nutritional test that assesses urine metabolites in order to evaluate four critical areas of metabolism: gastrointestinal function, cellular and mitochondrial energy production, neurotransmitter processing, and amino acid/organic acid balance as influenced by vitamin/mineral cofactors. Results can be used to address chronic systemic complaints ranging from chronic fatigue and mood disorders to headache, muscular/joint pain, and digestive problems. The Metabolic Analysis Profile is a nutritional test using an urinary assessment of 46 key organic acids grouped according to their primary roles in the following four central areas of metabolism.
The reference ranges for this test apply to children (2 — 12 years) and adults.

Essential and Metabolic Fatty Acids Analysis€270.00 Add to cart
Essential and Metabolic Fatty Acids Analysis
Essential & Metabolic Fatty Acids Analysis (EMFA). This test evaluates the level of red cell membrane fatty acids, imbalances of which significantly affect inflammatory and other disorders. By knowing the various fatty acid levels, one can re-establish a balance using nutritional intervention.This comprehensive profile allows practitioners to accurately assess dietary intake and metabolism of fatty acids in each patient. Precise, custom-tailored nutritional intervention is then made possible. Fatty acids comprise some of the most essential nutrients in the human diet. They are critical for cell membrane structure and function as well as local “hormonal” signaling. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are transformed into local hormonal mediators called eicosanoids. Eicosanoids regulate all stages of inflammation, including initiation, propagation and termination. This process is vital to the ability of the body’s immune system to repair and protect itself. Fatty acids are also crucial components of neural membranes and receptors that ensure proper intracellular communication within the brain and nervous system.€270.00

Drinking Water Analysis
A full drinking water testing service is provided by Life Change Health Institute Ltd through Fitz Scientific Lab. It is advisable, that if you are considering a water filtration system, that an independent laboratory like ourselves carries out the drinking water analysis independently and then after the system is fitted that a retest is done to ensure filter system is working properly. The water sample will be tested for the “Check Drinking Water Analysis” following the European Communities (Drinking Water) Regulations 2014 (SI 122 of 2014): These are, Aluminium, Ammonia, Clostridia, Total Coliforms, Colour, Conductivity, E Coli, Iron, Nitrite, pH, Hardness, Turbidity, Manganese. A Certificate of Analysis will be posted out in 10 working days along with an information sheet on understanding your results. Extra Parameters: We can also test for a wide range of other parameters which maybe of a concern in Drinking Water apart from the standard list above eg; Nitrates, THM, Langelier index (indication of corrosiveness), Lead, Copper, Arsenic Fluoride, Sodium & Silt Density Index etc. Individual prices for these can be given over the phone from our Sales team.
Upon Payment, Your Test Kit and Instructions will be set to your address. Once test completed as per instructions return to Fitz lab at address giving and you will have a full certificate of analysis within one week.€150.00

Amino Acids Analysis
The Amino Acids Analysis nutritional test helps to identify metabolic imbalances underlying many chronic disorders. Specifically, this nutritional test evaluates dietary protein adequacy and assimilation, as well as metabolic imbalances underlying many chronic disorders. With the precise results and comprehensive commentary provided, nutritional deficiencies, metabolic impairments, and amino acid transport disorders can be accurately identified and corrected.

Comprehensive Nutritional Test
The NutrEval (NUT06) is our most comprehensive nutritional assessment, which provides a personal recommendation on a functional need for B vitamins, anti-oxidants and minerals. It also includes Vitamin D and an Essential Fatty Acid analysis. This Test includes The Metabolic Analysis Profile (MET02) is an urinary organic acid test that measures four critical areas of metabolism: gastrointestinal function and dysbiosis markers, cellular and mitochondrial energy metabolites, neurotransmitter metabolites and functionally important organic acid metabolites of amino acids. The Amino Acids Analysis (NUT01) which quantifies levels of amino acids and their metabolites and evaluates essential and non-essential amino acid nutrient status.The Essential and Metabolic Fatty Acids Analysis (NUT03) and The Nutrient and Toxic Elemental Analysis (NUT10). As well as the following additional markers:
- Vitamin D
- Coenzyme Q10
Unlike any other nutritional assessments, NutrEval Plasma® provides a framework of core nutrients in 5 key areas: Antioxidants, B Vitamins, Digestive Support, Essential Fatty Acids, and Minerals. In this test, the Amino Acids are measured from a blood draw of plasma.
