Energy balance is essential in weight management. Simply put, if you burn more energy than your body absorbs, you will lose weight. When food is digested and absorbed into your body, it must either be burned as energy or stored as fat. Knowing your metabolic rate helps you to know how to balance what you eat with what you burn.
Calories is what we measure the energy in the food you eat and the energy your body uses. Your metabolic rate is how many calories your body burns in a day. Measuring metabolic rate is how we determine what is the right number of calories for your body ie for your metabolism.
We measure your unique Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR). Resting metabolic rate (RMR) is the measurement of how much food, or energy, is required to maintain basic body functions such as heartbeat, breathing, and maintenance of body heat while you are in a state of rest. That energy is expressed in calories per day. So an RMR measurement shows how many calories you burn at rest, doing nothing more than sitting in a chair.
A VO2 Max Test is a measurement that reflects a person's ability to perform sustained exercise. It is generally considered the best indicator of cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance. The actual measurement is "milliliters of oxygen used in one minute per kilogram of body weight." It is suitable for a wide range of individuals, from the sedentary to elite athletes.
A complete VO2 Fitness test can give trainers and clients the tools to set realistic goals and assess improvement. Studies show that previously sedentary people training at 75% of aerobic power for 30 minutes, 3 times a week over 6 months increase VO2 Max an average of 15-20%. Many people are inefficient exercisers, with no understanding of what specific heart rate, intensity or duration would best help them reach their specific goals such as fat burning, endurance training, or cardio conditioning. An initial VO2 Max test can clarify the specific target heart rates that will enable each individual to reach their fitness goals more effectively, with less fatigue and fewer injuries. Periodic retesting provides motivating feedback as the fitness program progresses.
The test also determines the number of calories burned during every level of exercise, providing valuable information when designing a weight loss program. And if CO2 is measured during the test, a Respiratory Exchange Ratio (RER) can determine the proportion of energy coming from carbohydrates and fats at various levels of exercise intensity. Since physical conditioning and exercise intensity affect these proportions, this information can be very helpful when designing a workout intended to burn fat.
VO2 Max is a valuable tool for serious athletes to assess performance and evaluate training regimens. Even though extensive training can sometimes cause an athlete to reach a plateau in VO2 Max, he can still use his VO2 Max test results to make further improvements in performance. This is accomplished as he pushes to increase anaerobic threshold (AT) and maintain that threshold for longer periods of time. This enhances both endurance and cardiovascular performance.
Dual-emission X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) is a means of measuring bone mineral density (BMD). Two X-ray beams with differing energy levels are aimed at the patient's bones. When soft tissue absorption is subtracted out, the BMD can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology.
DEXA scan is used primarily to evaluate bone mineral density. DEXA scan is also be used to measure total body composition and fat content with a high degree of accuracy.

This is a Non-invasive technology. The majority of hormones exist in one of two forms: free (5%) or protein bound (95%). It is only the free hormones that are biologically active, or bio-available, and available for delivery to receptors in the body. Those which are protein bound do not fit the receptors and are considered non-bioavailable. What is measured in the saliva is the bioavailable hormone, the clinically relevant portion which will be delivered to the receptors in the tissues of the body. It helps measure diurnal variations during the course of the day
Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals that facilitate the transmission of signals from one neuron to the next across a synapse to influence and regulate a wide range of processes such as mental performance, emotions, pain response and energy levels. Neurotransmitters and hormones are inter-dependent. The assay is carried out with urine samples. It helps in the diagnosis of
In human nutrition and biology, advanced glycation end products, known as AGEs, are substances that can be a factor in the development or worsening of many degenerative diseases, such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, chronic renal failure and Alzheimer's disease. AGEs are formed both outside and inside the body. Specifically, they stem from glycation reaction, which refers to the addition of a carbohydrate to a protein without the involvement of an enzyme. Glucose can bind with proteins in a process called glycation, making cells stiffer, less pliable and more subject to damage and premature aging.
From a simple finger stick, it measures key omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and calculates key indicators to establish your optimal balance. Trans fatty acids the "bad" oils in processed foods are also measured.
This simple, non-invasive, gastrointestinal test detects bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine, often referred to as BOSI or SIBO. Small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is a common gastrointestinal disorder that often underlies chronic gastrointestinal symptoms of maldigestion and malabsorption, including bloating, gas, diarrhea, irregularity, and abdominal pain.
Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) can inhibit nutrient absorption and lead to the following serious health problems:
The Bacterial Overgrowth of the Small Intestine Breath Test (SIBO) is appropriate for patients who demonstrate:
Omega‐3 fatty acids are essential to the human body and have benefits for our heart, brain, eyes and joints. By reducing inflammation, blood clots and improving membrane function, omega‐3 fats are associated with a lower risk of heart complications – including heart disease, plaque build‐up and heart attacks – both in persons with a history of heart disease and in healthy individuals. Omega‐3 fats are important for optimal brain development in babies and mental function, particularly later in life. An imbalance in the levels of omega 6 fatty acids in comparison to omega 3 is commonly found in the our population.
Analytes: Arachidonic Acid (AA), Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA), AA:EPA ratio
Oxidative stress results from the generation and overaccumulation of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species and has been shown to damage lipoproteins, lipids, DNA, and proteins. Furthermore, oxidative stress may modulate modifications to these lipoproteins and DNA such that endothelial function and inflammatory processes are altered, ultimately resulting in the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Isoprostanes are a series of prostaglandin-like compounds produced via the free-radical catalyzed peroxidation of arachidonic acid, independent of the cyclooxygenase-derived prostaglandins. F2-isoprostanes are considered the "gold standard" test for quantifying lipid peroxidation/oxidative stress in vivo.
Thiol testing has evolved since the 1990s to be seen as a reliable and trusted method for measuring overall human health status with 95% certainty.
Oxidative stress is a commonly used term to denote the imbalance between the concentrations of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species and the antioxidative defense mechanisms of the body. An antioxidant is a substance that is able to protect a substrate susceptible to oxidation from peroxidative injury, being itself present at fairly low concentrations in relation to the substrate.
Oxidative stress has been associated with a number of human diseases, such as cancer, coronary heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, cataract and degenerative processes. Over time, humans are continuously exposed to oxidants of both exogenous and endogenous origins. The determination of the oxidative stress status of a person not only allows comparison with the average of a population, but can also indicate the risk of suffering disorders and diseases that are product of oxidative stress.
Thiols are those compounds which contain the sulfhydryl group (- SH) attached to a carbon atom. They are endogenous molecules that assist aerobic cells maintaining a reducing state, despite an oxidizing environment. Thiols are extraordinarily efficient antioxidants protecting cells against consequences of damage induced by free radicals, due to their ability to react with the latter. Both intracellular and extracellular redox states of thiols play a critical role in the determination of protein structure and function, regulation of enzymatic activity of transcription factors and antioxidant protection.
A telomere test is a blood test that measures the length of telomeres, the protective structures located at the tips of chromosomes. The test is intended to reveal a person's biological age.Whereas chronological age measures the number of years since birth, biological age measures changes in the physical structures of the body (such as organs and bones), sensory perception, and motor skills. A person's chronological age and biological age aren't always the same. Telomeres are considered a good indication of a person's biological age.
Most chromosomes have telomeres that normally shorten as a person gets older. By analyzing telomere length individuals may gain insights into their health, lifespan and susceptibility to diseases, such as cancer and Alzheimer's.
