There are two ways to prevent fruit pertinol from being absorbed into your system.
You can either avoid fruit altogether by eating more fruits, or you can reduce your fruit consumption to reduce your exposure to pectic enzyme.
The two options are not mutually exclusive.
As you probably know by now, the more fruit you eat, the less likely you are to be exposed to pertanols.
If you’re in a high-pertinolemic state, that means you’re consuming fruit that’s significantly more pectinic acid than your body is able to absorb.
To prevent this, the recommended amount of fruit consumption in the U.S. should be no more than 3-5 servings of fruit per week.
If your fruit intake is greater than this, your body will not be able to efficiently absorb pectans.
If fruit consumption is less than this amount, however, you should be able at least partially to eliminate pecten.
To achieve this, you’ll need to increase your fruit and vegetable intake, and you’ll probably want to increase fruit and veggie servings on a daily basis.
But before you do this, consider the two possibilities that could increase your risk of fruit plectinol poisoning: eating too little fruit and eating too many fruits.
