Chlorella can also absorb toxins from the intestines. Because of its ability to bind to heavy metals and other toxins, it makes it a good partner to cilantro.
Cilantro can help remove heavy metals; however it tends to carry these metals to another part of the body. It should be used with other products that will capture heavy metals and remove them from the body.
Milk Thistle supports the liver functions and prevents toxins from building up in the liver. It helps support liver health and heavy metal removal. Its action is primarily observed in the liver.
Vitamin C has a long history of use in immune system support. Vitamin C helps boost the body’s production of glutathione. It also helps remove free radicals from the body.
Vitamin E works best in removing lead. It works well with Vitamin C. It helps reduce the stress caused by toxins in the body. Some concerns exist regarding high dosages of Vitamin E.
Magnesium supports detoxification and the production of energy process (as ATP), which provides cells with the energy they require for pumping out toxins before, during, and after they accumulate.
Modified Citrus Pectin is found in apples and fruits. It binds heavy metals and some free radicals. It has limited use in detoxification.
Glutathione is the body’s natural detoxification agent. Glutathione helps to remove heavy metals such as cadmium, iron and mercury. It is very difficult to supplement with Glutathione because the human body does not absorb it easily.
NAC is an amino acid, which can bind heavy metals and stimulates the body’s natural removal systems. NAC is used to treat acetaminophen over dose. It is used with DMPS to support heavy metal removal.
EDTA is effective in removing heavy metals from the blood; it is the standard, FDA-approved treatment for lead, mercury, aluminum and cadmium poisoning. EDTA may deplete important vitamins and minerals, so daily multivitamin supplementation is required
DMPS is a drug developed in Europe and is widely used to lower heavy metal toxin levels. It is administrated orally by physician. Side effects are common and its use must be monitored. DMPS is no longer available for purchase in the United States due to removal by the FDA.
DMSA is used for lead poisoning in children. It is used by some physicians prior to having mercury amalgams removed. This requires physician monitoring due to potential side effects. Unable to permeate cell membranes. Mobilizes metals in the body.
Humic & Fulvic Acid are naturally occurring acids used with other detoxification systems. Humic acid is known for immune support. Fulvic acid is known for detoxification and energy support. Neither has undergone extensive safety or performance studies. Both have minimal effects on systemic detoxification.
Clinoptilolite Zeolite is a naturally occurring volcanic mineral formed from the combination of volcanic ash mixing with sea water and blue green algae. Clinoptilolite is the variety of zeolite most associated with detoxification. It is sold as a powder or suspension. These forms of the zeolite are not bioavailable and provide excellent support to the GI system. It is widely used in environmental toxin and chemical removal. Published and proven to bind a wide range of toxins and chemicals.
Soluble Clinoptilolite Fragments provide a different concept in detoxification via oral chelation. These patented pending forms of hydrolysis create water-soluble zeolite crystalline fragments that are 100% bioavailable and work at subcellular and mitochondrial levels. Preclinical studies have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of soluble zeolite fragments, establishing a foundation for natural health improvement by passively and systemically removing heavy metals, bio-toxins and other environmental toxins.
