Send the samples and forms to our laboratories in the pre-paid packaging provided for our experts to analyze.
After sending the sample to BIOMEB, along with questionnaires that includes information about age, previous diet, type of exercise and duration, these samples are analyzed to measure the changes caused by exercise in the metabolism of amino acids, lipids, carbohydrates, antioxidants and Vitamins, to establish, for each person how their biochemistry responds to the effort.
