Test to Measure Nitrogen

Hi all,

Just wondering if there is a quick easy way to measure your body’s nitrogen state throughout the day? Like how there are ketostix for measuring whether you are burning fat for energy, is there anything like that to tell you whether you are in anabolic/catabolic state?

Probably not, but I thought I would ask.

No easy way to do this,

it basically takes a lab to evaluate how much nitrogen goes in, how much gets absorbed and how much goes out.

That would be kinda cool though.


Nothing simple, but there are simple ways to make sure you’re always in an anabolic state (while you’re awake anyway).
