Chelation Therapy: Healthy Mineral Profile
Applications for Health Improvement
- Helps protect tissues from oxidation stress
- Supports detoxification
- Supports removal of heavy metals from your system
120 Vegetarian Capsules
This formula contains ingredients designed to perform in concert to support your health when your body is challenged by environmental toxins, such as heavy metals. It removes toxic heavy metals, minerals, buildups and poisons from your system. It also helps the body rid itself of damaging oxidative elements. Our Ultimate Multiple w/o iron should be used while using the chelation therapy.
Himalayan Shilajit Extract: A purified form of shilajit also known as salajit, shilajatu, mimie, or mummiyo. Shilajit is composed mainly of humic substances, including fulvic acid plus some oligoelements (minute amounts of trace elements). Humic substances, as found in shilajit, have been shown to affect the distribution, metabolism and absorption of heavy metals, such as cadmium and lead [1-3].
EDTA : A synthetic amino acid compound and perhaps the most well-known and often used as an intravenous chelating agent. Oral EDTA may be poorly absorbed, but it is thought to support detoxification of metals largely in the gastrointestinal tract. Due to EDTA’s metal-binding ability, it is important to replace beneficial minerals, such as zinc, copper, iron, cobalt and manganese [4,5].
Cilantro: Also known as Chinese parsley or coriander, suppresses the deposition of lead by chelating the metal .
Allicin: Is the main biologically active component of garlic clove extracts and has promising effects on toxic metal accumulation in experimental research . Various extracts and forms of garlic have demonstrated garlic’s ability to positively affect detoxification pathways .
Chlorella: Is a naturally occurring micro-algae and an excellent source of chlorophyll—a detoxifying substance that is also thought to bind toxic metals. The positive effect of chlorella supplementation on toxic metals, including methylmercury, cadmium and lead is supported by animal research [9,10].
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) and Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA): Well-known for their antioxidant activity. Exposure to heavy metals increases free radical production and oxidative stress . Research suggests that there is a beneficial role for free radical scavengers in reducing the oxidative stress that is common with toxic metal exposure. NAC has the ability to interact with reactive oxygen species (ROS) and stimulate the body to produce glutathione. This can enhance cell survival after exposure to heavy metals or toxins. ALA may directly chelate or reduce the oxidative capacity of metals, such as copper, arsenic, cadmium, and mercury [13-15].
CAUTIONS: Individuals taking blood thinners, insulin, or other medication should discuss potential interactions with their healthcare practitioner. Do not take if you are pregnant or lactating.
