Identify Mycotoxins and Stay Safe

Mycotoxins and mold toxins are invisible substances present in many environments, including homes, offices, and factories. They are some of the most prevalent toxins found in the environment. They can cause severe health issues such as liver damage, neurological symptoms, fevers, rheumatic disease, and cancer if left untreated. The Mycotoxins Test from Vibrant Wellness uses advanced mass spectrometry (MS) to assess the presence and levels of difficult-to-detect toxins.

What Types of Tests are Used to Identify Mycotoxins?

Mass spectrometry (MS) allows the detection of trace molecules, such as mycotoxins. The Mycotoxins Test from Vibrant Wellness uses a highly sensitive MS technique to accurately detect 31 of the most common mycotoxins to which humans are exposed. This method is capable of detecting mycotoxins as small as 5 picograms, providing a much higher detection rate than conventional testing methods.

How Are People Exposed to Mycotoxins?

The main methods of exposure to mycotoxins are through airborne sources and mold-infested buildings and vehicles. The risk of mycotoxin exposure is highest in people who have compromised immune systems, elevated levels of oxidative stress, and known exposure to water-damaged buildings.

How Are Mycotoxins Treated?

A holistic approach to treating mycotoxin exposure is recommended, involving the removal of environmental sources of mycotoxins as well as periodic testing to monitor the reduction of toxin levels in the body. This helps to ensure that the patient is safe from any further health risks associated with their mycotoxin exposure.

Who is Most at Risk for Mycotoxin Exposure?

Individuals who are most at risk for mycotoxin exposure include:

  • persons who work or live in older buildings;
  • persons with impaired immune responses;
  • persons with higher levels of oxidative stress;
  • and persons who have known exposure to water-damaged buildings.

What are the Symptoms of Mycotoxin Exposure?

Mycotoxin symptoms vary from person to person and can include:

  • fever
  • fatigue
  • rheumatic disease
  • asthma
  • sinusitis
  • cancer
  • abdominal pain
  • diarrhea
  • skin rashes
  • disorientation
  • headache
  • vision loss
  • memory loss
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • heart disease,
  • and liver damage.

Individuals with a higher incidence of autoimmune or neurological symptoms may be particularly prone to experiencing mycotoxin exposure.

What Type of Sample is Needed to Complete the Mycotoxins Test?

The Mycotoxins Test should be conducted using a urine sample. The sample should be neither too concentrated nor too diluted, as it can affect the accuracy of the test results. It is best to collect the sample when the urine is pale yellow or deep amber in color.
