Kinetics is the study of rates of chemical or biochemical reactions, as well as the metabolic flux rates of biochemical intermediates within the body (e.g. glucose, amino acids, lipids, bile acids).

Kinetics is the branch of chemistry/biochemistry that focuses on studying and measuring the rates of chemical reactions or physiological processes. Kinetic studies have been used to quantify the flux rates of a number of in vivo biochemical compounds including, but not limited to, amino acids, glucose, triglycerides/free fatty acids, bile acids, cholesterol, and hormones.
