    Product Description

    SIBO bloated belly

    Indican and Skatol are waste products that end up in the urine when the amino acid tryptophan is insufficiently broken down by bacteria in the intestines. Too much of these breakdown products is a sign for intestinal bacteria to cause putrefaction in the small intestine. This is called SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) or SBOG (Small Bowel Overgrowth Syndrome).

    Elevated values of Indican and Skatol may indicate:

    • SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth)
    • the development of cancer over time, for example the development of a plasmocyte
    • the self-inflicted metabolic disease Phenylketonuria (PKU) which is already identified in babies by the heel prick.
    • Tryptophan-rich diet (lots of meat)
    • Bladder problems
    • White tide (women)
    • Bile dysfunction
    • Hepatic impairment
    • Renal impairment
    • Nierstene

    An elevated reading of both Indican and Skatol indicates SIBO. An increased value of Skatol indicates SIBO with a hepatic load. This is often a case of a (past) viral load on the liver.

    SIBO is an overgrowth of colon bacteria in the small intestine. In a healthy system, there is a low concentration in the small intestine and a high concentration in the large intestine. This is because the small intestine is where the food is digested, the food is mixed with digestive juices and the nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream. When bacteria enter and take over the small intestine, they disrupt the digestive process. The two processes that usually precede bacterial overgrowth are decreased gastric acid secretion and decreased motility of the small intestine. Once present, bacterial overgrowth can cause an inflammatory response in the intestinal lining, further exacerbating the typical symptoms of SIBO.
