Let’s talk about Mycotoxin Urine testing. Mycotoxins are toxic compounds that are produced by mold.
Mold exposure is quickly becoming one of the major causes of chronic disease. This can be exposure from your home, your workplace, your vehicle. We also know that people are being exposed to mold through the foods that they are eating. The way that some foods have been harvested and stored harbor mold and we get exposure to mold and mycotoxins by consuming those foods.
Mycotoxins build up in the body. We do a urine collection, then we send the urine sample to a lab and they do an analysis of the urine for mycotoxins.
If mycotoxins are showing up in the urine, then we know that there has been some mold exposure at some point in this person’s life.
