Intestinal Permeability and Food Sensitivities

Food Zoomers: A proprietary line of peptide-level tests for thousands of peptides in commonly antigenic foods, with higher accuracy than standard food sensitivity testing. 

 

These tests are designed to help customize and personalize diet recommendations when addressing complicated conditions such as intestinal permeability and autoimmune diseases, in order to avoid one-size-fits-all elimination protocols that may be unnecessarily limiting, or even harmfully add reactive foods, in some cases.



· The Wheat Zoomer: Vibrant’s flagship peptide-level test with the most robust panel available for the detection of intestinal permeability, gluten- and wheat-sensitivity, celiac disease, and gluten-mediated autoimmunity

· Corn Zoomer: to assess sensitivity to multiple peptides in corn, including GMO and non-GMO varieties

· Gluten-Free Grain Zoomer: to assess sensitivity to commonly consumed gluten-free grains

· Lectin Zoomer: to assess sensitivity to 16 high lectin foods and 7 high aquaporin foods

· Dairy Zoomer: to assess sensitivity to multiple peptides in cow’s milk dairy

· Mammalian Milk Zoomer: to assess sensitivity to multiple peptides in non-bovine alternative animal milks

· Egg Zoomer: to assess sensitivity to multiple peptides in both egg yolk and egg white

· Peanut Zoomer: to assess sensitivity to multiple peptides in peanut

· Soy Zoomer: to assess sensitivity to multiple peptides in soy, including GMO and non-GMO varieties

· Nut Zoomer: to assess sensitivity to multiple peptides in the most commonly consumed nuts, including those with cross-reactivity to other nuts and legumes

· Seafood Zoomer: to assess sensitivity to multiple peptides in the most commonly consumed  fish and shellfish

· Food Sensitivity: : a whole protein extract test for sensitivity to 209 commonly consumed foods through both IgG and IgA immunoglobulins*

· Food Additives: this is a brand new test to our menu, and includes antibody-based testing for 57 food additives including elements, emulsifiers and surfactants, flavor enhancers, fibrous additives, food dyes and pigments, gums and thickening agents, pesticides, preservatives and antioxidants, sweeteners, and others (BPA and latex). *Food Additives can be added to Food Sensitivity as part of our Food Sensitivity Complete test.

 
 

Food Component testing: Testing for antigens in 3 of the most allergenic foods at an affordable price.

· Peanut Component

· Egg Component

· Milk Component

Gastrointestinal

· The Wheat Zoomer: Vibrant’s flagship peptide-level test with the most robust panel available for the detection of intestinal permeability, gluten- and wheat-sensitivity, celiac disease, and gluten-mediated autoimmunity

· The Gut Zoomer: a PCR-based test for screening almost 300 bacteria, including 67 pathogens comprising intestinal parasites, worms, fungi, and viruses; relative abundances are displayed at the phylum, family, genus, and species level, and correlated to medical condition risk. The Gut Zoomer now also includes a full functional diagnostic panel measuring calprotectin, pancreatic elastase, beta-glucoronidase, bile acids, short-chain fatty acids, and more!

· IBSSure: a screening tool for antibodies that are associated with the autoimmune breakdown of the migrating motor complex (MMC), which can result in the development of refractory SIBO

Infections and Toxins (Lyme Testing)

  

· Tickborne Diseases: a test for detecting Lyme and other tickborne diseases through both antigen testing and PCR recognition of microorganisms at a highly accurate level for definitive data in making diagnostic decisions

· Infections panel:a panel of 7 of the most common infections associated with autoimmunity of the nervous system and systemic autoimmune and inflammatory conditions; this panel is available as a standard part of our Neural Zoomer Plus, or can be ordered separately

· Mycotoxins: The most comprehensive panel for detection of exposure to mycotoxins, with 31 markers measured to the most toxic molds and mycotoxins

· Fungal Antibodies: a comprehensive panel of antibodies to common and emerging fungal pathogens known to cause disease and inflammatory symptoms in humans

· Environmental Toxins: a thorough panel of 39 of the most inflammatory environmental toxins detected in urine, including plasticizers, pesticides, and more

Anti-aging


· The Neural Zoomer: the most comprehensive neurological degeneration and autoimmune screening tool available, with 48 antibodies to various structural and functional elements in the brain and nervous system. Aids in identifying antibodies including those responsible for dementia (memory loss) blood brain barrier disruption, neuropathies and inflammation.

· Neurotransmitters: A thorough and foundational look at urinary neurotransmitters and metabolites, including 7 which are unique to Vibrant. This panel is geared to assess the underlying imbalances in neurotransmitters found in common chronic inflammatory conditions.

· Urinary Hormones and Metabolites: A highly sensitive and comprehensive panel of urinary hormones to asses the patterns of imbalance found in hormones in inflammatory, immunological, and metabolic dysfunction.

· Salivary Hormones: A standard 4-point saliva collection to complement Neurotransmitter or Urinary hormone testing, including cortisol and other diurnal hormones.

Nutritional

  

· Micronutrient:a one-of-a-kind nutritional screening tool to assess direct measurement of both intra- and extracellular nutrient status of common vitamins, minerals, co-factors, amino acids, essential fatty acids and more

· Heavy Metals: a urine-based assay for the 20 most common heavy metal elements, with option for provoked and non-provoked ordering
