I am back to report on this. I asked 2 family members that had most of the indicators for pyroluria to try these vitamins and explained about their
possible deficiency. The giveaway was the symptom of not dreaming. Both people in my family mentioned not ever dreaming.
I bought B100 vitamins from costco and 50 mg zinc tablets. They took the B in the morning with food and the zinc later in the day with food.
Immediately they took effect with nightly dreaming and better sleep. The next obvious thing was, both people noticeably stopped reacting to stress in
an irrational way, like they would normally do. (Overreacting with anger to everyday problems). I personally could tell, living with them, that there
was a lot less stress in the house.
They have both been taking these vitamins for at least 6 months now, and they both tell me that if they don't take them, they can tell. Actually at
this point though, one of them has lost weight, that he did not need to lose, so keep that in mind, they do give you energy and to that end, probably
speed up your metabolism. The other did not lose weight though, calorie hog!
Along with the more rational thought improvement, they both had less feelings of depression, and feelings of wanting to be isolated from people. That
was a big deal! Those issues can ruin a person.
I think at this point they both have taken a break here and there from the vitamins, because they do give them upset stomach sometimes, and the zinc
was cut down to half the dose after a while because it makes them a bit speedy and can make it hard to fall asleep.
One thing is for sure, they know, and I know when they skipped their daily vitamin. The effect is basically immediate. I feel bad asking sometimes,
but I ask on those skipped days, if they did in fact skip, and I am always right.
Edit to add: I can not stress enough how big the effect was on their moods. One was making me very nervous with the amount of unexplainable
depression they were living with, and that turned around almost immediately. I at first thought that change was because of the mental effect of
taking something to help one's self, but now after 6 months on these vitamins, I know it's the vitamins and not just a placebo effect. The more
depressed person has a social life now and a love life! I am so, so happy to have learned about this issue.
