sodium bentonite MUCH better aflatoxin binder than calcium bentonite, make sure you get the right one
activated carbon, had no effect on aflatoxin
However activated carbon (charcoal) does remove Fumosinin.
Fumonisin B1 is the most prevalent member of a family of toxins produced by several species of Fusarium molds, which occur mainly in different varieties of corn.
Fumonisin is well known to cause many insults to mammals. For example, induced cancers in lab animals have included: liver adenomas and carcinomas, skin cancer, kidney tubule carcinomas, Simply, Fumonisin B1 is highly toxic to both livers and kidneys. It kills cells. It induces DNA damage. It undermines key reactions in lab animals and humans: sphingolipid, phospholipid and fatty acid metabolism is disturbed in and outside the body in all animals and in a single human study. Disruption of sphingolipids by fumonisin B1 causes cell death.
Comparing the Mold Toxin Binders on Fumosinin:
Cholestyramine showed the best adsorption capacity. It was quite effective at 85% absorption.
Activated Carbon had the second best mold toxin absorption at 62%.
Bentonite clay adsorbed minimally. Even when the amount of toxin load in the water was reduced to a low load of only 13 microg/ml, the Bentonite clay still only bound 12% of the toxin.
This is why it is important to rotate the binders when you are not aware of which mycotoxins you were exposed to. They have different effectiveness for different mycotoxins.
