Body Biochemicals 5 Test Kit
The energy patterns of more weight loss hormones, most of the enzymes involved in glycolysis and six prostaglandins.
For use by practitioners of bioresonance, applied kinesiology, NAET and other complementary therapies.
(This kit does not come with a storage box. If required go to our test kit accessories section)
Involved in 4th step in process of glycolysis.
BB102 CART/ Cocaine- and Amphetamine Related Transcript
Modulates the action of leptin and neuropeptide Y and so reduces appetite; cocaine and amphetamines stimulate its production.
Pancreas, activated from proelastase by trypsin; turns peptides into proteins.
BB104 Enolase Enzyme
Involved in 9th step in process of glycolysis.
BB105 Galanin Neuropeptide
Inhibits release of acetylcholine and glutamic acid; decreases excitability of spinal neurons; stimulates the appetite.
May be involved in Alzheimer’s disease.
Increases appetite; may be a hormonal link between stomach, hypothalamus and pituitary and so regulate energy balance; regulates growth hormone secretions; may signal to the hypothalamus when an increase in metabolic efficiency is necessary.
Blood levels are elevated in anorexics and return to normal after partial weight recovery.
BB107 Glyceraldehyde-3-Phosphate Dehydrogenase
Involved in 6th step in process of glycolysis.
Involved in 1st step in process of glycolysis.
Secreted by pineal gland; may inhibit reproductive activities and promote sleep; regulation of body’s biological clock.
BB110 Neuromedin B
Present in the central nervous system and gastrointestinal tract; binds to corticotropin releasing factor receptors; involved in smooth muscle contraction, blood pressure, blood glucose, body temperature and cell growth; suppresses the appetite.
BB111 2-Phenylethylamine/ PEA/ β-Phenethylamine
Chemical which plays a critical role in the limbic system known to give a feeling of bliss.
60% of depressed patients have a PEA deficit; a natural ingredient in chocolate; MAOI anti-depressants increase concentrations of this in the brain.
BB112 Phosphoglucose Isomerase
Involved in 2nd step in process of glycolysis.
Involved in 3rd step in process of glycolysis.
BB114 Prostaglandin A1/ PGA1
Relaxes the muscles in the walls of blood vessels, acting as powerful vasodilators and so lowering blood pressure.
May protect against peptic ulcers.
BB115 Prostaglandin D2/ PGD2
BB116 Prostaglandin E1/ PGE1
Dilates blood vessels and so reduces blood pressure.
Seems to be elevated in manic-depressive disorders; used as a treatment for erectile dysfunction in men.
BB117 Prostaglandin E2/ PGE2
Promotes platelet adhesiveness; promotes sodium retention; promotes inflammation; widens airways; stimulates contraction of uterus; protects against peptic ulcers; acts on adenylate cyclase to enhance the production of cyclic AMP. Used as a treatment for erectile dysfunction in men.
BB118 Prostaglandin F2/ PGF2
Stimulates contraction of uterus; narrows airways.
BB119 Prostaglandin I2/ PGI2
Reduces platelet stickiness.
Women who develop pre-eclampsia have low levels of this.
Used in the process producing proteins; converts the energy produced by the oxidation of food molecules to a form which the cell can use to satisfy its energy needs; involved in nerve conduction and muscle contraction; rids cells of excess nitrogen; protects the cell from cancer-causing agents.
Increased levels raise the levels of uric acid in the blood and cause gout.
BB121 Pyruvate Kinase
Involved in 10th step in process of glycolysis.
BB122 Serine Amino Acid
Can be made in human body from glycine; used to make substances such as choline, phospholids, phosphotidylserine; present in all cell membranes; plays a key role in membrane stability.
BB123 Triosephosphate Isomerase
Involved in 5th step in process of glycolysis.
BB124 Uric Acid
Waste product of the breakdown of nucleic acid in cells; formed primarily in the liver and excreted by the kidney into the urine. Over-production leads to uric acid crystal deposits in the joints (gout); low levels in people with multiple sclerosis; high levels in metabolic syndrome.
