Nitric Oxide Saliva Test - 99.00 each

roduct Description

  •  
    • Test the body's current ability to produce Nitric Oxide (NO)
    • Non-invasive saliva-based Nitric Oxide test
    • Instant read result
    • Nitric Oxide plays a very critical role for the promotion of good health and longevity. It influences the functioning of the lungs, liver, kidneys, stomach, genitals, and the heart. It tells the surrounding arterial tissues to relax, thereby, improving blood circulation to support healthy blood pressure level.

      An individual who is experiencing Nitric Oxide deficiency is more vulnerable to experience health diseases, such as hypertension, chronic kidney disease, and congenital abnormalities. There are several ways to remedy Nitric Oxide deficiency, including healthy diet, regular exercise, and taking nitric oxide supplement. However, before resorting to any lifestyle change approach, a Nitric Oxide test is important to know whether or not a person is producing enough Nitric Oxide (NO) in his body.

      Nitric Oxide had been first known to be present and produced in the human body in the 1970s. However, only in the late 1990s has it been recognized to play a critical role in the person's wellbeing. Research suggests that Nitric Oxide influences the functioning of the lungs, liver, kidneys, stomach, genitals, and the heart by telling surrounding arterial tissues to relax.

      An individual who is experiencing Nitric Oxide deficiency is more vulnerable to experience health diseases, such as hypertension, chronic kidney disease, and congenital abnormalities. On the other hand, too much Nitric Oxide is associated with headaches, dizziness and low blood pressure. While there may be several steps to ensure healthy production of Nitric Oxide in the body, there are limited ways to test Nitric Oxide level in the person's system.

Comprehensive Health Profile - special price $119.00

 A broad-based screening test for Everyone.

The Comprehensive Health Profile has been our most ordered lab test for 30 years. The profile screens for cardiovascular risk, major organ function, anemia, diabetes, infection, blood disease, and other indications of illness. This is the blood test routinely ordered as part of an annual physical exam and it includes the components of a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel.

The Comprehensive Health Profile consists of the following groups of online blood tests:

  • Lipid Panel
  • Liver Profile
  • Kidney Panel
  • Minerals & Bone
  • Fluids & Electrolytes
  • Complete Blood Count
  • Diabetes Screen

Preparation: fast 12 hours prior to this test, unless you are diabetic or pregnant. Fasting means abstaining from food and any non-water drinks. Do drink plenty of water while fasting and continue with any prescribed medications

 Men - you may want to consider the Men's Health Value Package, which includes this test, plus the PSA blood test and a Urinalysis for $80 more.

Women - you may want to consider the Women's Health Value Package, which includes this test, plus the TSH blood test and a Urinalysis for $70 more.

These are not intended as diagnostic comments, but only to give you sufficient information for further discussion with your physician. It is important that you promptly consult your physician regarding any abnormal findings.

 The Comprehensive Health Profile includes ALL of these online blood tests:

Lipid Panel

  • Cholesterol: There are two main groups of fat in the blood, cholesterol and triglycerides. Increased cholesterol may lead to arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), diabetes, thyroid, liver and pancreatic disease.
  • Triglycerides: This blood fat is also involved in arteriosclerosis, diabetes, thyroid, liver and pancreatic disease. They may be elevated in the 200-400 range if you have eaten within 10 hours of the blood draw. If your results are in this range and you did not fast, a repeat evaluation should be obtained.
  • HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) Cholesterol: This is the "good" fat-protein combination. The higher the value, the lower the risk of developing heart disease. HDL can be increased with regular aerobic exercise, monounsaturated fats such as olive and canola oils, and cessation of smoking. Mild use of alcohol (one or two glasses of wine per day) has been reported to increase HDL.
  • LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) Cholesterol: This is the "bad" fat-protein combination, and the lower the LDL the better. The higher the LDL, the higher the risk of developing heart disease. This level can be decreased with reduction in fat intake, weight control, and regular exercise. Because this value is calculated using the triglyceride result, fasting is important for an accurate LDL, as well as triglyceride, result.
  • VLDL (Very Low Density Lipoprotein) Cholesterol: This is the "bad" triglyceride. Elevation represents a risk of heart disease and/or pancreatitis.

Liver Profile

  • Albumin, Globulin and Total Protein: Measures the amount and type of protein in your blood. They are a useful index of overall health and nutrition. Abnormal results are an indicator of under nutrition, liver or kidney disease, cirrhosis, multiple meyloma, sarcoid, amyloid, lupus, and/or major infections. Globulin is the "antibody" protein important for fighting disease. If one of these values is high, but the other values are within expected ranges, the result is probably not significant, but only your physician can confirm this.
  • LDH (Lactate Dehydrogenase): An enzyme found in blood and tissues. Elevated levels are found in various diseases including myocardial infarction, cancer, and anemia. A hemolyzed blood specimen can falsely elevate levels. Slightly decreased levels are usually insignificant but only your physician can confirm this.
  • Gamma GT (GGT): A liver enzyme whose elevation may indicate liver disease. Moderate intake of alcohol and some common medications may cause elevated levels to occur.
  • Bilirubin: Primary pigment in bile. It is derived from hemoglobin and processed by the liver, and builds up when the liver is functioning poorly or when some other disorder reduces the normal flow of bile. It is increased also when there has been destruction of red blood cells.
  • AST & ALT: Injury to cells releases these enzymes into the blood. Liver disease and heart attacks, as well as serious physical injury can cause elevation of these values. Low values are probably not significant, but can only be confirmed by your physician.

Kidney Panel

  • Urea Nitrogen (BUN): A waste product of the liver excreted by the kidneys. High values may indicate kidney malfunction and/or dehydration
  • Creatinine: This is a waste product of muscle metabolism that is discarded by the kidney. It is elevated in kidney disease, muscle wasting disease, and sometimes the day after strenuous physical exercise.
  • BUN/Creatinine Ratio: Both BUN and creatinine are elevated in kidney failure, but they are elevated differently depending on the cause of the failure. This ratio helps determine the type of kidney failure.
  • Uric Acid: High values are associated with gout, arthritis, kidney stones and kidney disease. High values can also be caused by the use of diuretics.

Minerals & Bone

  • Iron: Values are a measure of the supply in the blood. It is not the same as the anemia-screening test, although low values in this test may help explain anemia. Iron levels decrease during the day.
  • Calcium: screens for range of conditions relating to the bones, heart, nerves, kidneys, and teeth. Blood calcium levels do not directly tell how much calcium is in the bones, but rather, how much total calcium or ionized calcium is circulating in the blood.
  • Phosphorus: A mineral found in bone. Abnormal levels are seen with kidney, bone and parathyroid disease. Low levels seen with excessive antacid use, gout, insulin therapy, and vitamin D deficiency.

Fluids & Electrolytes

  • Carbon Dioxide: Part of the electrolyte pane used to detect, evaluate and monitor electrolyte imbalances.
  • Sodium, Potassium, and Chloride: "Electrolytes" help make up the salt balance and acid/base balance in the body. They can be affected by diuretics or water pills, high blood pressure, heart failure, kidney and lung disease. The balance among these elements is important for proper functioning of the heart and brain.
  • Alkaline Phosphatase: A bone and liver enzyme. High values are associated with liver and gall-bladder disease. Expect to see higher values in adolescents and pregnant or breast feeding women. Low values are probably not significant, but can only be confirmed by your physician.

Complete Blood Count

  • White Blood Cell Count (WBC) - The infection fighting cells of the immune system found in the blood. Lowered or elevated levels may be associated with a disease process.
  • Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) - Measures the number of oxygen-carrying cells in the blood. Lowered levels associated with anemia, elevated levels associated with smoking and several diseases.
  • Hemoglobin (HGB) - Measures the amount of oxygen-carrying protein in the RBC. Significant increases or decreases can be seen in anemia or RBC disease.
  • Hematocrit (HCT) - Measures the oxygen-carrying capability of the blood by measuring the percentage of blood made-up of red blood cells. Significant decreases are one indicator of anemia.
  • MCV, MCH, MCHC, RDW - Collectively called "indices", these tests measure size and other characteristics of the red blood cells. They can be used to further define the causes of an anemia state. An isolated abnormal value probably has little clinical significance, but can only be confirmed by your physician.
  • Platelet Count - These are small packages of clotting materials in the blood. Too many cause problems with unnecessary clotting; too few may cause excessive bleeding. Certain conditions alter this count.
  • Lymphocytes, Monocytes, Neutrophils, Eosinophils - Different types of WBCs. They may be used to evaluate allergic reactions or differentiate between bacteria, viral or parasitic infections.

Diabetes

  • Glucose (sugar) - Fasting values are usually high in diabetes. Certain drugs, such as thyroid, diuretic, and birth control pills as well as recent intake of food, can elevate glucose levels.

HAIR ANALYSIS: $149.00

Mineral Check Testing Kit only requires a hair sample in order to determine the levels of minerals and elements in your body. It can detect: *11 essential minerals including Calcium, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Iodine, Magnesium, Manganese, Selenium, Strontium, Sulfur and Zinc. *9 toxic elements including Aluminum, Antimony, Arsenic, Bismuth, Cadmium, Lead, Mercury, Nickel and Tin. 

 Minerals play a vital role in several of the body's metabolic functions. Unlike some vitamins, minerals are not produced naturally in the body and must be taken externally. A physiologically correct composition of a diverse array of minerals is required for normal healthy metabolic activity as many of these minerals act as co-factors with one or the other enzymes. An increase or decrease in the concentration of these minerals beyond physiologically tolerable limits may lead to severe medical conditions. So, it is advisable to keep a track of essential minerals in your body. There are many mineral check kits in the market that require just a hair sample in order to determine the levels of various essential minerals including Calcium, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Iodine, Magnesium, Manganese, Selenium, Strontium, Sulfur and Zinc. Some of these kits also detect various harmful elements like Aluminum, Antimony, Arsenic, Bismuth, Cadmium, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, Tin etc. Such kits are based on hair tests as the minerals rotating in body gets entrapped into the hair through the hair shaft which is directly connected to the arteries, through the core of the hair, called cortex.


Essential minerals are vital to cellular function and necessary for the body's structural and metabolic functions. Toxic elements affect brain function, the kidneys, blood flow, sleep and digestion. Our Mineral Check Testing Kit will help you determine how your body is doing and if you need to seek medical advice. Just self-collect a sample of hair, send it to our lab in the prepaid mailer and receive your results in 7-10 days.

Sleep Strip - Sleep Apnea Syndrome (SAS) At Home Screen Test $179.00 Special Price.

Sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) is a medical disorder affecting, 4% of men and 2% of women worldwide. This syndrome characterized by repetitive reductions of airflow during sleep due to the collapse of the pharyngeal airway, causing loud snoring, brief awakenings, hypoxemia and elevated blood pressure. 


Millions of sleep apnea patients suffer from excessive daytime sleepiness, headaches and hypertension. There is growing evidence that chronic sleep apnea runs in families, and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Sleep apnea is relatively unknown, with only about 15% diagnosed so far.

Sleep apnea can only be diagnosed by a sleep study, costing up to $2,500.00. Unattended ambulatory studies, which are considered least expensive, are often unreliable. There is therefore a need for a low cost screening device, which may help screen the general population and locate potential patients, and at the same time help minimize unnecessary and expensive studies. 

The FDA in US and CE in EU approved SleepStrip as a disposable home screening test for sleep apnea. Several research studies have shown that its indications correlate well with those of formal sleep studies.

Quick Mold and Allergens Test:  $99.00

Click to add text, images, and other content 

Product Description

  • Results in seconds to a minute
  • Easy interpretation of results - visual color change
  • Safe and easy to use mold testing kit for indoor environment
  • An ideal test for consumers with suspected mold and water damage on building materials and other surfaces
  • CLEAN = GREEN, Mold Contamination = GRAY or PURPLE
  • Detects Both Living (Viable) or Dead (Non-viable) Mold Spores
  • 12 Month Shelf Life at Room Temperature
  • Can be used as an Investigative Test or Initial Evaluation Sample of Mold Growth
  • Can be used as a Post Remediation Verification (PRV) test for Black Mold Removal or Mold Remediation
  • Biochemical reagents are safe, non-toxic and not hazardous to use
  • Identify the sample area or material surface to be tests.  Samples should be collected from visibly stained, discolored, blemished or visibly soiled areas where mold and allergens are suspected to be present.  Remove the test swab from the protective tube by firmly grasping the collar or base of the device bulb and the protective tube.  Firmly pull apart the protective tube away from the collar or base of the device bulb.  Take care not to touch the swab shaft or swab tip with your hands or any other surface other than the desired test surface.  Using a side to side sweeping motion and slight rolling of the swab device, use the swab to collect as much mold or allergen like substances as possible from the desired test surface.  The sample area should be at least 2 inches by 2 inches square.  Testing a surface area less than this may result in a false negative result due to not enough mold or allergen contaminant being collected.  Once the sample is collected, return the swab to the protective tube and snugly put the device back together.  Firmly grasp the reagent bulb and blue plastic stem within the bulb and snap it back and forth a few times to ensure the plastic stem breaks.  Once the plastic stem is broken free, squeeze the bulb to release the liquid reagents down into the protective tube where the swab bud is located.  Gently shake the device back and forth about 5 seconds to thoroughly mix the reagent liquid with the swab bud.  The reagent liquid will instantly turn green once it is squeezed into the base of the protective tube.  This is normal.  If a detectable amount of old or allergen is collected, the reagent liquid will turn from green to gray or purple within a few minutes indicating the positive presence for mold or allergens.  If the reagent liquid remains green or any shade of green after 10 minutes this is indicating the lack of mold or allergen presence on the sampled test surface and the surface is considered clean.  This step is very important to follow in order to obtain the most accurate results.  Do not read or observe the quick mold test sample after 10 minutes.  Samples read or observed after 10 minutes are not valid due to the chemical nature of the device, which will eventually turn all samples purple with the passage of time greater than 10 minutes.  Once the quick mold test sample device has been used and interpreted, it can be safely disposed of.  Dispose of the entire test device and do not attempt to pull the device apart once it has been used.

Water TEST:   $199.00

We all need water for various purposes – for drinking, bathing, washing, irrigation etc. Amongst all, the drinking water should be safe and contamination free for a healthy living. There are various types of water tests which apply stringent criteria to ensure microbial, mineral and chemical safety of drinking water. A microbial or bacteriological test indicates presence of any pathogenic or disease-causing bacteria in the drinking water. EPA has designated testing of coliform bacteria as a standard for determination of safety of using water as these bacteria are simple to identify and are much abundant. The Drinking water test kit is made to check for presence of various coliform bacteria & nitrates. Suck kits are quite accurate as all testing material - including sampling bottles are often sterilized to prevent external contamination of samples. A mineral analysis on the other hand provides an estimate of the extent of mineral impurities in the water. Many industrial-waste chemicals can also contaminate a water supply and impair its usability and/or create a health hazard, for instance, petroleum products, industrial chemicals, agricultural pesticides, heavy metals like lead so and so forth. So, water must be checked periodically
