An Unfortunate and Lengthy Adventure in Misdiagnosis

B12 and sulphites

leave a comment »

Fact of the day: B12 might reduce sulphite sensitivity. B12 binds to sulphites and clears them from the body (they turn into sulfitocobalamin). Apparently this has been shown in studies to be effective in treating sulphite induced asthma, urticaria, contact dermatitis and atopic dermatitis. That would explain a few things!

This is great, however, it does not help convert sulphites to sulphates, which is what we need to do to get the PST enzyme back up and running.

I’ve also read that nitrites destroy the B12 and folate coenzymes. Therefore one should not attempt to get one’s daily B12 requirements from processed meats!
