Histidine (Genova)

Optimal range: 57 - 114 µmol/L

Homocysteine (Genova)

Optimal range: 3 - 14 nmol/ML

Homocystine (Genova)

Optimal range: 0 - 0.6 µmol/L

Hydroxylysine (Genova)

Optimal range: 0 - 0.6 µmol/L

Hydroxyproline (Genova)

Optimal range: 0 - 26 µmol/L

Hydroxyproline is a collagen related amino acid. Hydroxyproline is a nonessential amino acid, which means that it is manufactured from other amino acids in the liver. Hydroxyproline is necessary for the construction of the body’s major structural protein, collagen. Hydroxyproline is present in essentially all tissues and all genetic types of collagen.

Hydroxyproline/Proline (Genova)

Optimal range: 0 - 0.152 Ratio

Isoleucine (Genova)

Optimal range: 35 - 104 µmol/L

Leucine (Genova)

Optimal range: 74 - 196 µmol/L

Lysine (Genova)

Optimal range: 120 - 318 µmol/L

Lysine is found in great quantities in muscle tissues, stimulates calcium absorption, carnitine synthesis, and growth and repair of muscle tissue.

Methionine (Genova)

Optimal range: 14 - 48 µmol/L

Ornithine (Genova)

Optimal range: 28 - 117 µmol/L

Phenylalanine (Genova)

Optimal range: 42 - 95 µmol/L

Proline (Genova)

Optimal range: 99 - 363 µmol/L

Sarcosine (Genova)

Optimal range: 0 - 19.5 µmol/L

Sarcosine is also known as N-methylglycine. It is an intermediate and byproduct in the glycine synthesis and degradation. Sarcosine is metabolized to glycine by the enzyme sarcosine dehydrogenase, while glycine-N-methyl transferase generates sarcosine from glycine.
