I recently started taking serrapeptase, but want to know if you have any knowledge of Pyroluria? This discovery may have saved my life, being tested for Pyroluria after lifetime of extreme anxiety and then severe depression the last ten years. Unable and not wanting to fry my brain with toxic synthetic drugs, the addition of more zinc and B6 (P5P) (for me a TON due to severity of depletion) and some supplementary minerals for this increase in Zinc has been finally improving my health.
The toxic withdrawal of copper and other metals from my body/brain has been hellacious, but I’m actually having livable days, first in many years. So my question is , what are your thoughts on serrapeptase and nattokinase dosing as very important amino acids to help repair one’s brain receptors for serotonin uptake naturally when on a strong Pyroluria protocol? Again, no meds are needed for pyrolurics, but lifetime need for larger than normal doses of zinc and B6 (P5P is safer than Regular B6 to avoid the neuro damage hi doses B6 can cause)
This Pyroluria knowlege has been a phenomenal discovery for those families struggling with autism, asbergers, depressions, anger, anxiety, etc! I think that additional amino acids could prove also essential in the recovery protocol as well. Your thoughts greatly appreciated! Thank you again for your devotion to helping others.
There are specific situations that may lead to a vitamin E deficiency due to malfunctions in terms of how nutrients are absorbed. A premature infant who is born weighing less than pounds is in danger of a vitamin E deficiency, but a pediatrician who specializes in the care of newborns will typically evaluate the nutritional needs of an infant to help spot and treat this early. People with fat absorption problems, which is a common problem for those who struggle with inflammatory bowel disease , may also struggle with a vitamin E deficiency in some cases.
