Pyroluria, Pyrrole Disorder and a Healthy Diet
The importance of a nutrient-dense and antioxidant-rich diet should not be overlooked by anyone suffering from Pyroluria or Pyrrole Disorder. Still, sadly, it is often a forgotten piece of the puzzle.
Foods found in nature, not those manufactured by humans, have countless healing benefits and life-extending properties. An additional benefit for Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder sufferers is that natural foods are excellent sources of Zinc, Vitamin B6, Biotin, Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) and Antioxidants. Nutritionally rich antioxidant ladened foods provide critical nutrients to every cell, which allows the body to function at its highest potential, equating to long-term health, vitality and wellness.
Why are Antioxidant-Rich Foods Important for Pyroluria?
To accurately diagnose Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder, a substance called hydroxyhemopyrrolin-2-one (HPL) is measured. Studies have shown a correlation between the levels of HPL and the degree of oxidative stress.  The higher the levels of HPL, the greater the oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress causes cellular damage and alters DNA, which can lead to many health concerns including; heart disease, dementia, cancer, Parkinson's disease and diabetes. , ,  Thankfully nature has the antidote in the form of antioxidants. Antioxidants are select chemicals found in food and produced by the body that donate an electron to the oxidative stress molecule, effectively rendering it harmless.
In food, the role of antioxidants is to keep the plant healthy. When we eat that food, those health benefits are passed on to us. It's beautiful to see nature working in harmony to keep us healthy. For Pyroluria and Pyrrole Support sufferers, we recommend a nutritious diet and NatroVital's Antioxidant Support to help reduce the effects of oxidative stress, caused by elevated HPL.
Thoughts to Ponder
- If you drive a petrol or gasoline car, would you fill the tank with diesel fuel?
- Why are cola drinks more popular than water, or lollies/candy eaten in preference to fruit?
- Why do people love to eat white rice, but screw their nose up at brown, red or black?
- Why are people continually putting the wrong fuel into their body, but expect it to perform at its highest potential?
- Did you know that caffeine, alcohol and sugar, either destroy or deplete zinc, vitamin B6 and biotin?
Improving the diet is the foundation of all health and as such, provides the building blocks to help overcome Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder.
