Bio Energetic Testing® (BET) 

(BET) is the most important health and anti-aging metabolic testing tool ever developed because it takes acknowledges that the core principle behind staying strong and healthy and avoiding disease is to maintain youthful mitochondrial function. In fact, even with all of the controversy commonly seen in medicine, there is no argument over this fact.

Every cell in your body contains thousands of mitochondria that convert oxygen into energy and carbon dioxide by burning fat and sugar. These gases must be exchanged not only at your lungs, but at your cells too. Your blood transports these gases between your lungs and cells, and we measure the exchange through your respiratory system.

Who Should Get this done?

Everyone! With a comprehensive series of tests, anyone may find it helpful to assess the efficacy of your mitochondrial function. Generally, the more efficient your mitochondrial function, the more oxygen you can consume. Without a doubt, oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide expulsion is the best indicator of the health and youthfulness of your body. 

How does it work?

The 3 main fuel options for energy in the body are fat, carbohydrates, and protein which BET can measure your fuel usage systems by making use of their different chemical makeups. 

Carbohydrates (think of bread or potatoes) are the first to be used for energy (adenosine triphosphate ATP) in the body when you need energy fast for something like sprinting. 

Fats or fatty acids(think of butter or avocados) are used by the body when there is plenty of oxygen around like during low intensity exercise or just at rest. 

Proteins (think of any meat) are NOT to be used predominantly for energy unless you are not intaking enough calories.

Considering these factors, the Bio Energy metabolic testing is able to distinguish between fat/carbohydrate burning for a distinctive feature between these 2 molecules: carbohydrates are made up of more oxygen.

The Problem

The process of aging isn't as simple as the number of years and months since you were born. There are 2 types of ages: chronological and biological. Chronologically, we count our age by years if you were born January 1st 2000, you would be 20 years old on January 1st, 2020. Biologically, the integrity of our cells, mitochondria, DNA, and metabolic systems may be better or worse than what our chronological age is.

The Solution

Biological age is not as definitive as chronological age: somebody may only live to 80 years old, but other people live all the way to 100 years or more. With that said, there are things you can do to control your biological age to extend your chronological age. The goal of BET is to keep your metabolic systems young.

Ideally, your body would burn a lot more fat than carbohydrates for its predominant fuel source when at rest and for long-duration exercise, but this is often not the case.

A series of tests will be run at your BET session consisting mainly of a vital capacity test, resting breathing test, and a bike exercise test (optional vo2 max testing). Along with other measurements, the BET computer system will be able to calculate a variety of metrics relating to your energy system's health.

Above all, the major contributor to our energy production is the mitochondria found throughout every cell. As we age, they may not utilize oxygen and produce energy as efficiently as they used to. Your oxygen utilization comes down to lifestyle factors like diet, exercise, stress, and sleep to ensure optimal functioning of your organs and hormonal systems.

Your Bio Energy Results

Energy Quotient

A global bio-marker of your total mitochondrial function influenced by lifestyle, lung function, heart strength, circulations, fat metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, toxicity, nutrient status, hormonal balance, liver and kidney function, fitness, and more.

Biological Index

Overall score that combines Energy Quotient, Metabolic Factor, Carbohydrate Factor, Fitness Factor, and Fat Burning Factor. The Bio Energy testing algorithms use these values to compute you biological index relative to proper functioning of a set age.

Resting Metabolic Rate RMR

Refers to how many calories your body burns over 24 hours at rest. Consequently, this is the major factor in weight management problems. If your RMR measurement is too low, then you will have difficulty losing weight. RMR testing is done by indirect calorimetry.

Metabolic Factor

Compares your demographically expected resting metabolic rate with your resting metabolic rate. Genetics and body composition impact this. THYROID hormones, adrenal function, and sleep are important to this metric.

Adrenal Factor

Evaluates the effect of prolonged stress on the body. A result < 100% would indicate high stress.

Fitness Factor

Represents efficiency of turning oxygen into power. To get a score over 100, you must have a good Energy Quotient along with good muscle mass and fitness. Accordingly, you are in great shape if your FF is over 100.

Fat Burning Heart Rate (FBR)

Your optimal heart rate to burn the MAX amount of FAT possible. This would be your target heart rate for exercise. Often it is better to create a target zone around this value because it is very hard to account for natural variability in your heart rate.

Calories at FBR

Calories burned each hour while exercising at Fat Burning Heart Rate.

Resting Heart Rate

Heart rate while you are laying in bed or sitting down relaxing.

Carbohydrate Factor

Measures resting fat metabolism. Eating too many carbs can cause your carbohydrate factor to go down. Surprisingly, about 80% of the population is sensitive to carbohydrates in this way. An optimal value would be less than 90.

Fat Burning Factor

The result determines your ability to metabolize fat for energy. Ideally, the harder you work, the more fat you will burn before using carbohydrates.

Anaerobic Threshold Heart Rate (ATR)

Heart rate where you produce maximal energy from O2 without going into lactic acid metabolism. It is often a moderate intensity, but going past it can start to get difficult. Interval training with brief periods at this HR will help stimulate the mitochondrial function and improve health.

Calories at ATR

Calories burned each hour while exercising at Anaerobic Threshold Heart Rate.

Resting Respiratory Rate

Your resting respiratory rate is the number of times you breath in 1 minute when you are at rest.

Lung Factor

Evaluates lung function by the maximum amount of air you can intake in one breath.

VO2 Max

The maximal amount of oxygen you can use in one minute. However, vo2 max testing was not done unless you exercised until exhaustion and reached maximum heart rates. It is most commonly used for endurance athletes, but it is a great indicator of your energy production potential.

Body Fat Percent

We use bio-impedence to measure body fat. It refers to the percent of body weight that is due to fat. This is a better indication of health compared to the body mass index bmi which only uses height and weight to make a calculation.

Optimum Calories

Your optimum daily calories to maintain.

Your optimum calories to lose 1 pound per week.

Weight Loss Calories: Amount of daily calories to lose weight if you don't exercise.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does this test take?

45-60 minutes.

Can you test my VO2 max?

Yes, but you will have to work until exhaustion, so this is not recommended for most. This test is on a bike, so you must have good leg strength to test your VO2 max (if you are a long distance runner, you would want to get this test done on a treadmill.)

How does RMR compare to basal metabolic rate bmr?

They are essentially the same, but basal metabolic rate is a measure of energetic expenditure by only necessary bodily functions while resting metabolic rate is basal metabolic rate + any other processes that occur while resting.

Will the exercise test be hard?

For people who exercise regularly, not at all. For a few, it can be more difficult in the last 3 minutes, but you should not be worked to your limit unless you are doing a VO2 max test.

Why is it called Bio Energy?

Bio Energy is just a fancy term to describe the energy production of your body. This metabolic testing really aims to evaluate your mitochondrial health.
