MycoTOX – Great Plains Laboratory

$586.25

Mycotoxins are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment. Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mould, which can infest buildings, vehicles, and foodstuffs. A majority of mycotoxin exposures are through food ingestion or airborne exposure.  GPL-MycoTOX screens for eight different mycotoxins, from four species of mould, in one urine sample.  GPL-MycoTOX uses advanced mass spectrometry (MS/MS), which is necessary to detect lower levels of these fungal toxins.

Description

GPL-MycoTOX screens for eight different mycotoxins, from four species of mould, in one urine sample.

Fungi are able to grow on almost any surface, especially if the environment is warm and wet. Inner wall materials of buildings, wall paper, fibreglass insulation, ceiling tiles, and drywall (Gyprock) are all good surfaces for fungi to colonise. These fungi then release mycotoxins into the environment which may cause symptoms of many different chronic diseases. Diseases and symptoms that may be linked to mycotoxin exposure include fever, pneumonia-like symptoms, heart disease, rheumatic disease, asthma, sinusitis, memory loss, vision loss, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, depression, ADHD, anxiety, and liver damage.

It is recommended to use 500mg of glutathione or 1g of NAC twice a day for 7 days before testing to support the immune system to provocate the excretion of these moulds.
