Metallothionein proteins are found in most cells of the body. They contain between 61 and 68 amino acids and fulfill many functions.
Highest concentrations: Gastrointestinal tract
The Pfeiffer Centre have shown that cellular levels of metallothionein are lower in autistic children than controls. This could well be one of the causative factors in the trouble breaking down gluten and casein, delayed brain maturation and poor heavy metal excretion.
METALLOTHIONEIN PROMOTION THERAPY:
The Pfeiffer Clinic have developed and patented a supplement of the 14 amino acids that make up metallothionein proteins in the same ratios that would be in the natural proteins. It is important that this phase is done after zinc loading and correction of methylation status.
