The importance of a nutrient-dense and antioxidant-rich diet should not be overlooked by anyone suffering from Pyroluria or Pyrrole Disorder. Sadly though, it is often a forgotten piece of the puzzle.
Pyrrole Disorder can best be described as the abnormal synthesis and metabolism of the oxygen carrying molecule in your blood, called haemoglobin. All cells in your body produce waste or by-products and the by-product of haemoglobin is a metabolite called hydroxyhemopyrrolin-2-one (HPL) also known as Pyrrole. This metabolite was originally thought to be a Kryptopyrrole but further studies have proven this not the case.
Fibre is the miracle undigestible component found in all plant base foods. Fibre has the amazing benefit of not only keeping the digestive tract healthy, but also reducing the risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes and cancer. Not bad for something the body doesn't absorb.
Pyroluria can best be described as the abnormal synthesis and metabolism of the oxygen carrying molecule haemoglobin. Pyroluria Sufferers produce excessive amounts of hydroxyhemopyrrolin-2-one, which binds to, inhibits absorption and increase urinary excretion of Zinc, Vitamin B6 and Biotin

The Candida species naturally occurs in small quantities within your digestive tract and its role is to help with the whole digestive process. The amount of Candida present in your intestinal tract is regulated and kept under control by your beneficial gut bacteria.

Boosting the immune system naturally may increase your resistance to bacterial, viral, parasitic and other infections, reduce your sensitivity to allergenic reactions, decrease your body's inflammatory response and increase your antioxidant defence system.
Inflammation is a complex biological response in which your body reacts to an infection, irritation, or other injury. The key features of inflammation are redness, warmth, swelling and pain. In the initial stages of an injury inflammation acts as a protective mechanism designed to eliminate harmful stimuli that causes tissue damage as well as being a major component of the healing process for that tissue.
