What is the NutrEval Test?

NutrEval is Genova's most comprehensive nutritional evaluation and is designed to assist with management of symptoms related to nutritional deficiencies. This profile assesses numerous metabolic pathways and synthesizes this complex biochemistry into actionable treatment options. Critical nutrients that are functionally assessed on Genova's nutritional profiles include:​

  • Antioxidants
  • B Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Essential Fatty Acids
  • Digestive Support

The personalized supplement recommendations, adjusted for the age and sex of the patient, guide therapeutic protocols in identifying clinical imbalances that may inhibit optimal health.

Studies suggest that even a balanced diet may not provide all essential nutrients. NutrEval supports assessment of a patient's nutritional needs by identifying nutritional deficiencies that may be

How is Genova’s Nutritional Testing Different?

  • Genova nutritional testing measures 100s of areas in the body that are impacted by poor nutrition. Your results are presented in a personalized report so that your doctor can help create a plan specific to your needs.
  • Genova’s tests identify subtle imbalances related to many common health issues that can be found before standard labs can detect them.
  • The test allows insights on how nutrition and the environment are impacting your body. Testing can reveal toxic exposures and measure your body’s ability to neutralize those toxins

What Advantage Does the Profile Offer Compared to Other Diagnostics?

Although practices are changing, the traditional medical model does not currently place emphasis on biochemical individuality. The conventional clinical approach to nutrition-related symptoms does not routinely include utilization of comprehensive nutritional testing. When testing is performed, select vitamins are assessed to determine if the level is sufficient to meet nutrient requirements based on healthy individuals. However, a comprehensive assay – such as NutrEval FMV – provides several advantages for patients with nutrient-related symptoms.

  • Identification of imbalances that may precede abnormal findings on standard laboratory panels
  • Comprehensive nutritional assessment indicating the functional need for specific nutrients, diet modification, antioxidant protection, detoxification and other therapies
  • Personalized nutrient recommendations based on biochemical individuality

Sample Report

What Can You Expect from NutrEval Testing?

Imbalanced or insufficient nutrients affect a wide range of body functions, producing symptoms that negatively affect the quality of life and, with some chronic diseases, may be considered a root cause. A structured comprehensive nutritional analysis – such as the NutrEval Plasma profile – to evaluate underlying imbalances provides clinical utility by supporting insight into development of personalized treatments.

Identification and targeted treatment of underlying imbalance with customized nutrient recommendations can enhance other treatments and increase the patients' overall health and ability to combat chronic illness.
