A Complete Nutritional Analysis?
NutrEval is Genova's most comprehensive nutritional evaluation and is designed to assist with the management of symptoms related to nutritional and digestive insufficiencies. 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:
Essential Fatty Acids
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 the essential nutrients. NutrEval supports the assessment of a patient's nutritional needs by identifying nutritional deficiencies that may be associated with complex chronic conditions.

The unique features of the NutrEval Plasma report provide for easy interpretation and enhanced clinical utility:
Colorimetric reporting signals key areas of concern
Synthesized results and actionable areas of high need for supplementation:
Results Overview Cover Page – provides the busy clinician with an immediate sense of patient areas requiring focus
Suggested Supplement Schedule – provides personalized recommendations for antioxidants, B-vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, digestive support, and amino acids
Interpretation At-A-Glance – provides patients with valuable information about the function of individual nutrients, causes and complications of their deficiencies, and their dietary sources
When Should a NutrEval Profile Be Considered?
Research suggests that nutritional shortfalls or imbalances may be at the root of many chronic conditions. The NutrEval can help identify specific, personalized recommendations for even the most difficult-to-treat patient cases.
Effective for Patient Concerns Such As:
Chronic Pain/Inflammatory Conditions
Weight Issues/Dietary Guidance
General Health and Sports Fitness Optimization
The NutrEval nutritional analysis is designed to assist in the management of nutritional imbalances or insufficiencies. It is ideal for establishing a baseline assessment ahead of clinical intervention with nutraceuticals as well as subsequent monitoring if needed.
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 nutritional analysis – such as NutrEval Plasma – 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
What Can Clinicians and Patients 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 patientsâ overall health and ability to combat chronic illness.
