KPU- What is it?

What is KPU?

“Kryptopyrroluria (KPU) is a condition in which patients become zinc,  biotin, B6, manganese, and omega-6 fatty acid deficient. As a result and in part, ‘their immune systems are like soldiers with guns without bullets’, says Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD.”   A “condition whereby the body” is unable to process and results “in severe mineral deficiencies.” [1]
