Amino Acid Plasma Test

The Amino Acids Plasma Test shows the level of amino acids available in the body for building structural, transport, and storage proteins, building immunoglobins, and making enzymes. Amino acids play a role in many other body functions as well, including neurotransmitter functioning, cholesterol and carbohydrate metabolism, and detoxification processes.
