Furancarbonylglycine is a metabolite produced by Aspergillus and possibly other fungal species in the GI tract.
Furancarbonylglycine is a metabolite produced by Aspergillus and possibly other fungal species in the GI tract. High levels of Furancarbonylglycine is often related to aspergillus and/or penicillium mold. The most common exposure source is moldy food, i.e. fruits, grains, cheese. After addressing dietary issues, these markers will often normalize upon retesting. At times environmental exposure is the source, i.e. mold damage in the home. Prescription or natural antifungals, along with high-potency, multi-strain probiotics, may reduce overgrowth.
