Bismuth & damaged enzymes
Bismuth toxicity like that of other heavy metals is able to combine with sulfur groups of foods. This means that bismuth can disrupt many vital enzymes that are made from the sulfur groups of foods, the effect of bismuth is to disrupt and destroy the function of these essential enzymes. Bismuth is toxic to all living organisms who depend on these enzymes such as humans.
The human body literally makes and uses thousands of enzyme’s which are needed for good health, this means that bismuth can cause really any disease and diagnosis of bismuth toxicity can be difficult, while bismuth is capable of interfering with so many vital enzyme reactions symptoms can be many and varied.
Damaged enzymes can cause vitamin, mineral, essential fatty acids and amino acid imbalances that can lead to serious disease. Those who use products with bismuth are encouraged to test for bismuth toxicity.
