The Body’s Fundamental Building Blocks

Amino Acids make up proteins found in every tissue of the body. They play a major role in nearly every chemical process that affects both physical and mental function. They also have more diverse functions than any other nutrient group, including cellular energy production, formation of antibodies, ligaments, tendons, bones, and more. Defy Medical offers three testing options: plasma, urine, and bloodspot.

Factors that May Impact Amino Acid Testing;

  • Aging
  • Depression
  • Chronic Stress
  • Low Protein Diets
  • Poor digestion
  • Toxic Chemical Exposure
  • Improper use of medications such as antacids or acid blockers.

A non-invasive alternative to a blood draw, the Bloodspot assay can determine essential amino acid imbalances. The test kit is simple enough for the patient to use at home.

Receive your Custom Amino-Acid Formula with each test result!

Your specific test results will be used to customize an amino-acid formula designed to target your deficiencies and goals. These customized formulations provide appropriate amounts of essential and conditionally essential amino acids delivered in a balanced ratio.

“ Although free form amino acids are only a very small proportion of the body’s total mass of amino acids, they are very important for the nutritional and metabolic control of the body’s proteins.”
- Institute of Medicine (2005)

Defy Medical strives to provide both quality medical care along with affordable access to compounded medications, blood tests, and nutritional supplements. In order to accomplish this, Defy Medical does not accept any form of insurance. Many of the formulations we use in our therapies are not covered by insurance, and the cost of overall treatment is often less than when using insurance. On case by case basis, some insurance companies do reimburse for Hormone Replacement Therapy and Testosterone Replacement Therapy. It is each patient's responsibility to contact their own insurance company to confirm reimbursement. Defy Medical will not contact your insurance company nor will take any responsibility for any additional forms your insurance requires. Defy Medical provides claim assistance by completing the standard claim form (CMS-1500) for the patient to submit to their insurance company. If you would like to receive Claim Assistance, please contact patient services at
