Conclusion – Porphyra-Zyme
Porphyra-Zyme is a product that is both gluten and dairy free designed for individuals whose bodies are overloaded with toxic metals. If taking only 1 tablet a day, the price point for the product is quite competitive; if taking between 2-3 tablets a day, this is much less so the case.
This product has not been manufactured in a facility with GMP certification and there is a lack of testimonials with customers’ experiences taking this product on both the manufacturer and third party sites. And those few reviews that are available are more than a few years old at this point. This is concerning given what they promise will be the results for those individuals who believe that they are overloaded with toxic metals and whether in fact there is evidence that levels have been reduced. And the manufacturer makes major claims that the combination of vitamin C, blends of spinach, mulberry, beet powder, and organic vegetable culture concentrate aids in detoxification of metals without presenting the consumers with clear data to this end.
Research shows that competitive products on the market use large dosages of chlorophyll along with probiotics and health bacterias, to neutralize harmful toxins and wastes from the body. And these other products offer a much lower price point for their supplements with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Also, these products are sold within the United States including California and offer international shipments as well. This is a huge advantage to customers living outside of the United States and even North America, who wish to use these products.
