Kryptopyrrole Test


Neurotoxin Assessment

The Kryptopyrrole Test measures the level of kryptopyrrole in urine. When high levels of kryptopyrrole a neurotoxin circulate in the body, it binds with Vitamin B6 and zinc causing them to be depleted faster and preventing their use in the brain and body. A high incidence of this is demonstrated in Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, alcoholism, and Down Syndrome.

Available in USA only.

Kryptopyrroles are chemical compounds that bind to vitamin B6 and zinc, leading to their depletion in the body. Elevated levels of kryptopyrroles in the urine are associated with pyrrole disorder, also known as pyroluria, a condition that can cause a range of physical and mental symptoms.

Urinary kryptopyrrole test can help diagnose pyrrole disorder and guide treatment, which typically involves supplementing with zinc, vitamin B6, and other nutrients that may be depleted in individuals with this condition. Accurate and timely testing and treatment of pyrrole disorder can help alleviate symptoms and improve overall health and well-being.
