Know if mold toxins are eroding your health and wellbeing.

The Vibrant Mycotoxins test is a urine-based assay for 31 of the most common mycotoxins produced by molds to which humans are exposed.
Mycotoxin symptoms are often general or vague, and difficult to associate with a diagnosis or disease state, and, therefore, may be overlooked during clinical assessments. This test will confirm if mycotoxins are contributing to your symptoms.
Symptoms and Risk Factors
Consider the Vibrant Myctoxins panel if you experience:
- Fatigue and weakness
- Chronic burning in the throat and nasal passages
- Coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath
- Loss of balance
- Depression and/or anxiety
- Skin rashes
- Eye irritation or tearing of the eyes
- Headache and/or light sensitivity
- Hearing loss
- Heightened sensitivity to chemicals and foods
- Irregular heartbeat
- Morning stiffness and/or joint pain
- Muscle weakness
- Sleep problems
- Poor memory, difficulty finding words
- Slower reaction time
- Vision changes
- Difficulty concentrating
- Abdominal pain, diarrhea, and/or bloating
- Unusual skin sensations, tingling, and numbness
- Increased urinary frequency or increased thirst
- Disorientation and/or dizziness
- Static shocks or metallic taste in the mouth
Is This Test Right For Me?
The Mycotoxins test is a simple and quick test that can tell you if you have mold toxins in your body. If you’ve tried diet and exercise but still can’t reach your goals, mycotoxins may be getting in the way!
How Accurate Is This Test?
This test is measured using Vibrant’s patent-pending proprietary technology, to produce the most accurate and clinically relevant assessment of difficult-to-detect toxins that can cause serious disease in humans. Vibrant is able to detect mycotoxins, small molecules, as small as 5 pcg, which greatly expands the number of available mycotoxins detected.
How Should I Prepare For This Test?
Fasting is not required for the Mycotoxins test. However, fasting for 12 hours may increase the amount of mycotoxins excreted in urine, so consult with your ordering provider about whether they recommend you fast for 12 hours before the test. Some Vibrant America ordering providers may prefer you do a “provoked” Mycotoxin test which requires taking a “provoking agent” (such as NAC, glutathione, DMSA, or EDTA) prior to testing to promote the release of body stores of mycotoxins so that the mycotoxins are “mobilized” (moved through the body) and excreted (released) in urine. Vibrant America does not require a provoked test, nor does Vibrant America recommend a specific provoking agent, dose, or timing of provocation before testing. Discuss with your ordering provider whether they recommend a provoked or unprovoked test, and which provoking agent, dose, and timing of provocation and urine collection they recommend for you.
Please note that unprovoked test results cannot predict provoked test results as the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (release) of mycotoxins in urine is highly variable in different people and is influenced by a number of physical, dietary, and environmental factors. Overall, the majority of Vibrant America ordering providers order unprovoked testing. For best test performance, collect the first morning urine upon awakening, prior to eating or drinking.
