Biotoxin Removers
This page contains educational material about biotoxin removers. This information is for educational purposes only. Nothing in this text is intended to serve as medical advice. All medical decisions should be made only with the guidance of your own personal medical authority. I am doing my best to get this data up quickly and correctly. If you find errors in this data, please let me know.

Below are various items that will bind mycotoxins, or bind bile which is attached to mycotoxins. Some of the studies are research that measures the ability of a product to bind to mycotoxins in the food or to decrease mycotoxin burden in the body. I am getting the research data up as fast as I can. I have a lot of it and I am accumulating more each day. Just need to get it on here for you.

Cholestyramine has been used for a variety of biotoxins including mycotoxins with very good results. It may be a better choice for ochratoxin than for aflatoxin or trichothecene. For aflatoxin and trichothecene charocoal and bentonite clays may be a better binder. Calcium D-gucarate may help remove trchothecene. Sometimes people use all three together and there is research showing this may be a good option sometimes. All should be taken away from foods and medicines as described in the section on "How to take cholestyramine."

A list of Items that are used or researched as biotoxin binders:

Cholestyramine - See multiple links below
Charcoal, cholestyramine and clay used together
Diatomaceous Earth
Bentonite Clay & Other Clays
Green Tea

Water soluble fiber Research

Other possible binders are pectin (apple or modified citrus petctin), chitosan, beta-sitosterol, probablyl all water soluble fibers are helpful to one degree or another.

Cholestyramine is the most often used biotoxin binder.
