The Citric Acid Cycle test is an extremely useful test since energy is essential to cellular function and we can get this energy by metabolising carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. The citric acid cycle is a critical component for macronutrient metabolism and energy conversion for all 3 of these nutrients. The complete metabolism for each of them must, at some point, go through the citric acid cycle.

- Chemical sensitivities
- Blood sugar irregularities
- Malabsorption & maldigestion
- Mood disorders
