BioEnergy Test

BioEnergy Test is a patented computer driven program developed by the Nevada Centre of Alternative and Anti-Aging Medicine that utilizes respiratory oxygen uptake and carbon dioxide production analysis to measure the body’s mitochondrial functional dynamics including ATP generation, fatty acid metabolism and glucose metabolism.  This technology is able to verify that a decrease in energy production exists LONG BEFORE any signs or evidence of mitochondrial decay or aging occurs.  This early decrease in energy production is caused by two primary factors: decreased fatty acid utilization and decreased mitochondrial oxidation efficiency.  It is precisely this early decrease in energy production that is ultimately responsible for the observed mitochondrial decay that is associated with aging.  By recognizing this early decrease in energy production and reversing or improving it to youthful levels, it is possible to delay and even reverse the processes of aging and mitochrondrial decay.  Poor mitochondrial function is the root cause of every disease, obesity, and even the very process of aging itself.

Resting metabolic rate and VO2 maximum output during progressively more difficult exercise are measured.   The Bio-Energy Testing® computer program then calculates:

  1. Resting mitochondrial efficiency.

  2. Resting fat metabolism.

  3. Maximal mitochondrial efficiency.

  4. Maximal fat metabolism.

How Does Bio-Energy Testing Work?
  • The Bio-Energy Testing analyzer measures oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production.

  • Oxygen consumption directly determines mitochondrial efficiency.

  • Carbon dioxide production determines fat metabolism.

  • Optimum carbohydrate intake is determined by the ratio of oxygen consumption to carbon dioxide production.

  • Overall strength is determined by the amount of work you are capable of per unit of energy produced.

  • The Bio-Energy Testing analyzer sorts and analyses an enormous amount of data and calculates your energy production dynamics under both basal and exercise conditions.

  • Bio-Energy Testing algorithms present the results of these calculations in a way that can have immediate clinical relevance.
