A healthy result should fall into the range 2.8 - 13.5 mcg/mg creatinine.

Picolinate is a neurotransmitter metabolism marker and is produced under inflammatory conditions.

Picolinate is a catabolite of the amino acid tryptophan through the kynurenine pathway [1].

Its function is unclear, but it has been implicated in a variety neuro-protective, immunological, and anti-proliferative affects [3]. In addition, it is suggested to assist in the absorption of zinc ions and other divalent or trivalent ions through the small intestine.

Neurotransmitters are the chemicals your nervous system uses to function and communicate with your body. Abnormalities in this area can relate to symptoms of mental, emotional, and behavioral problems.
