What Is The Metabolome?
The Heath Nucleus approach also encompasses your metabolome. Metabolomics is the measurement and analysis of metabolites in your body. The complete set of metabolites is referred to as the metabolome.
A Deeper Look
Metabolites are small chemicals such as sugars, fats, hormones, signaling molecules, and intermediate and end products of the processes and biochemical reactions that take place within your cells, or from bacteria in your gastrointestinal system.
Understanding Your Metabolome
Your metabolites give a direct functional readout of your physiological state. Analyzing your metabolites through a blood sample can assess physiological imbalances that are the precursors to disease. This analysis helps complete the total picture of your health.
