    I recently ordered a Metamatrix Amino Acid profile from Direct Labs. I ordered the 40 amino acid test plasma kit for 369 dollars.

    I see here on this website that I could have ordered virtually the same test kit for 157.00 dollars.. Plus shipping I assume.

    Both companies are contracted with labcorp. The only one that didn't match in direct comparison to what is shown was ethanolamine (DL) to amino-beta-guanidino-propionic acid (life extension's and Dr. vitamins solutions). It looks to be over half price with the life extension test. I wanted to share that. Thank you.

    I found prepaidlab always cheaper than anywhere else (now called ineedlabs). But Life Extension is competitively close and for a few extra dollers you get to talk to a doc so I actually usually choose them.

    I use LabsMD or PrivateMD Labs. Both of these are LabCorp sites
