Amino Acid Test | 24 Hour Urine

Amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, are essential in maintaining optimal health. For example, low levels of the amino acid tryptophan promotes depression by depleting serotonin levels. Raising serotonin levels by supplementing with tryptophan, or it's metabolite 5 HTP, is a healthy way to regain chemical balance. The only way to know is to have your amino acids tested.

Since consuming excess amino acids and proteins can damage the liver and kidneys, it is important for those who supplement regularly like bodybuilders to be tested. All vegetarians should have their amino acids levels check to ensure adequate protein intake.
