All About EDTA
Mercury, lead, and other heavy
metals are often called cumulative poisons because in normal
circumstances, they come out of the body more slowly than they are
absorbed from the environment. The older one is, the more heavy
metals are accumulated.
The first step in removing heavy metals is called mineral antagonism.
In this process, the body is flooded with nutritional minerals
like zinc, selenium and magnesium that compete for the same deposit
sites and dislodge the heavy metals.
The problem with mineral antagonism alone is that it only dislodges
heavy metals, which means they will become lodged elsewhere. You may
take selenium and dislodge some mercury stored in your brain, but
this mercury then circulates through the blood and becomes deposited
in your liver. In this constant recirculation, only a tiny trickle of
that mercury will actually leave the body. To solve this
re-depositing problem, you need to take a chelating agent such as
EDTA. EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) is an amino acid
compound, and a powerful chelating agent - meaning it attaches to
plaque buildup and heavy metals and removes them naturally from the
body. EDTA forms six bonds to heavy metals - two from
nitrogen atoms in amino groups and four from oxygen atoms in carboxyl
groups. EDTA will chemically bind with the heavy metal,
keep it in circulation, and prevent it from being
re-deposited. Once bound to the chelating agent, the kidneys are
able to excrete the mercury out of the body. Life Choice CLAW-OCHMB
uses EDTA, along with other chelators that enhance EDTA's
Industrial Grade EDTA is used in batteries and for other practical
purposes. Food Grade EDTA is used to protect us to some degree from
harmful metals that find their way into the foods we eat. The sodium
and calcium salts of EDTA are common sequestrants in many kinds of
foods and beverages.
Pharmaceutical Grade EDTA is used in the best chelation products for
its primary function, that of removing unwanted metals (in particular
Calcium, Mercury, Lead, Cadmium & Arsenic) from the body's organs
and cardiovascular system. Normally high dosage levels of EDTA
are not recommended for oral applications since less than 5% of EDTA
is absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, but in low dosage oral
forms help release lodged toxic metals, such as lead, and mercury.
Benefits of detoxing with EDTA may include:
Stronger immune system
Better GABA balance in the
brain--leading to lessened depression/anxiety and better mental
