LAB RELEASE: Using CytoFlora®, Child Improves Neurological Symptoms, Detoxification and Mitochondrial Irritation

Lab Test Image

Comparison Organic Acid Testing (OAT) shows CytoFlora®, an innovative probiotic lysate, enhances the body’s ability to process unhealthy gut flora Candida and Clostridia, while improving nutrient absorption and detoxification systems in the body.

Before CytoFlora® intervention, 5 year old male presented with defiance and temper tantrums. He had difficulty making and using grammatically correct sentences and a diminished ability to communicate overall. Baseline OAT shows elevated markers in the following areas: yeast and fungal, oxalate metabolites, Krebs cycle metabolites, neurotransmitter metabolism, along with a decreased ability to absorb nutrients and detoxify acid debris*.

After 3-months intake of CytoFlora®, this young boy’s OAT shows dramatic improvements in 75 out of 77 metabolites. His physical and behavioral improvements include “more compliance, less defiance, less tantrums. He communicates his needs now with more grammatically correct sentences”. His ability to detoxify and utilize nutrients has significantly improved along with a increased energy and mental functionality*.

What Is the Organic Acid Urinary Analysis – OAT?
Urine organic acid testing is useful in the diagnosis and monitoring of individuals with inborn errors of organic acid metabolism, inborn errors of amino acid metabolism, urea cycle defects, and defects of the mitochondrial respiratory chain.

Limitations – Organic acid analysis may fail to detect certain disorders that are characterized by minimal or intermittent metabolite excretion.

LH-Neurotransmitter

What Do Improvements in These Markers Indicate?

HVA and VMA are released in the body in response to physical and emotional stress. This marker is commonly elevated in individuals with heavy metal toxicity* and gastrointestinal imbalances*.  The changes in HVA/VMA suggest that this child was able to significantly improve his adrenal function and decrease his stress response in the body.

5-HydroxyIndoleacetic (5 – HIAA) is the primary metabolite of serotonin excreted in the urine. High levels of this metabolite can cause flushing in the face and neck, loose stools, gastrointestinal discomfort and respiratory issues. Imbalances of serotonin is one of the most common biological findings in autism.

LH-DetoxificationWhat Do Improvements in These Markers Indicate?

Elevated Pyroglutamic Acid indicates intracellular glutathione deficiency which is often attributed to exposure of acetaminophen (OTC pain reliever). The changes suggest that this child is able to process toxic metabolites*.

The changes in Orotic Acid suggest that this child was able to decrease excess ammonia, which often results from toxicity in the liver and decrease 2-Hydroxyhippuric Acid, a by-product of the sweetener aspartame*.

Intake Details

Child’s diet has not changed from the pre and post comparison tests. He maintains a high oxalate diet of “quite a lot of nuts every day”. Child began at a lower dose of CytoFlora®. Following his first OAT, his intake increased over 2 weeks until reaching 5 droppers 2x per day. He continued this dose for 2 1/2 months.
