Blood Spot Fatty Acids Test

This profile identifies toxin exposure, to help guide detoxification protocols and help clients to achieve optimal health.



About the test

This MycoTOX Profile uses a simple urine sample to screen for 11 different mycotoxins from 40 different species of mould, to identify toxin exposure in clients and form useful interventions.

Mycotoxins are metabolites produced from mould, and are one of the most prevalent toxins in the environment. Fungi, such as mould, can be found in buildings, vehicles and food, and unfortunately are resistant to heat as well as many other processing procedures.

The mycotoxins released by fungi can contribute to many chronic diseases and symptoms, such as food allergies, liver disease, infertility and seizures. Common symptoms such as nausea, diarrhoea, irritability and fatigue can also be caused by mycotoxin exposure.

This test requires one urine sample collected first thing in the morning.

Please note, the price of this test includes a DHL home collection and international shipping of the sample to the processing laboratory.
