Best Supplements for Metal Chelation

EDTA rids the body of toxic levels of lead, mercury, cadmium and aluminum. It is certainly one of the most powerful chelators since it is able to bind both mineral and metallic ions, and carries them naturally outside the body. In addition, it prevents oxidative stress in the bloodstream even before heavy metals and toxins catalyze oxidative reactions. So EDTA is one of best heavy metal chelation.

DMSA is the best method of chelation and elimination of heavy metals such as lead, arsenic and cadmium, but especially the mercury it chelates in the blood, liver and kidneys and go to the brain. Be careful; do not take supplements containing minerals on days of taking DMSA. On the other hand, one always takes a supplement in minerals the days when one does not take DMSA to replace the eliminated minerals in the process of chelation.

Lemon pectin increases the urinary excretion of arsenic, cadmium, tungsten, mercury and lead. But beware, only modified lemon pectin is really effective.

Magnesium malate is a compound of magnesium and malic acid that has the ability to exchange its magnesium for aluminum and thus helps to reduce the toxic excess of this metal accumulated in the body.

Coriander mobilizes mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum in tissues as different as bones or the nervous system. Its action is as much in the nucleus as in the cellular cytoplasm. In case of joint pain, migraines and neurological intoxications, it is good to associate it with green tea, phosphatidylcholine and magnesium, at the rate of twenty drops of coriander TM. Caution, do not use if there are potentially dangerous dental amalgams in the mouth, or other sources of mercury and toxic metals in the body. Alpha Lipoic Acid chelates cadmium, lead or mercury from fillings and neutralizes half a dozen varieties of free radicals.

Garlic extracts bind to lead, cadmium and mercury and facilitate their elimination. Allicin, an essential substance of the plant, opposes toxic and inflammatory manifestations generated by heavy metals including when they are reactivated during detoxification processes.

Alkyl glycerol chelate heavy metals such as mercury, pesticides and toxins, and accelerate their elimination from the body.

Melatonin reduces the macromolecular damage caused by heavy metals. It inhibits the oxidative damage of paraquat, potassium cyanide and carbon tetrachloride.

Spirulina has a chelating effect of heavy metals by its chlorophyll, porphyrin, which binds to heavy metals such as mercury, lead, arsenic and nickel, and contributes to their elimination from the body.

Iodide potassium participates in the body’s normal detoxification processes, including the removal of heavy metals.

Fermented papaya extract, one of the best antioxidants and immunostimulants, alternatively acts as an anti-inflammatory and a chelator of heavy metals.

Lysine, an essential amino acid, stimulates the immune system and detoxifies heavy metals, particularly lead chelation, in the elderly.

Chlorella helps the body get rid of persistent, carbo-hydrated or metallic toxins, such as DDT, mercury or cadmium, and strengthens the immune system. Its polysaccharides eliminate mercury intestinal.

Chitosan attracts lipids like a sponge, preventing their absorption, and helps greatly to purge heavy metals dislodged by chlorella.
