Urinary Indican Test
What is the Urinary Indican Test?
This Test is a fast way to assess your protein digestion and gut health reflecting the friendly bacteria Eco-balance. Normally an overgrowth of non-friendly and anaerobic bacteria and other pathogens can have effects on the level of the gut integrity, inflammation, immune system and health.
The Urinary Indican Test is a simple-to-use point-of-care screening tool that allows for assessment of dysbiosis, SIBO and malabsorption states as evidenced by the presence of Indican. Also known as indoxyl sulfate, Indican is produced when there is putrefaction of tryptophan from dietary protein by dysbiotic bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. A positive test result suggests dysbiosis and/or SIBO and/or malabsorption states, with darker shades indicating more severe dysfunctions
What causes the Urinary Indican Test result to vary?
Unbalanced diets, junk food, lack of drinking alkaline ionized water, excess fat and sugar consumption, lack of fibre, sedentary lifestyle practices and stress All these factors contribute to disturb the normal digestion in the gut, leaving undigested food to putrefy and ferment causing inflammations, toxicity and gut disorders. The end product of the putrefied products is called indoles.
Normally most of the indoles will expel in the gut and the rest will be metabolized inside the liver and excrete via the kidneys as Indican. If the gut is inflamed and suffers from overgrowth of bad bacteria, than the higher indoles and the Indican levels in the test.
