- Recognised efficacy against lead poisoning;
- Excellent chelator of calcium;
- Powerful antioxidant.
Ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA) removes lead and heavy metals from the body by bonding to them through chelation', and carrying them away naturally in waste. EDTA is also an excellent chelator of calcium which accumulates in vascular walls increasingly as we age, causing hardening of the arteries and atherosclerotic plaques which obstruct blood flow. EDTA's systemic action benefits not just the heart but all vessels and organs. In addition, it is a powerful antioxidant, especially effective at reducing lipid peroxidation - a major cause of atherosclerosis.
To obtain the benefits of oral chelation therapy, you may also be interested in other oral chelators similar to EDTA. DMSA (dimercaptosuccinic acid), for example, is recognised as a powerful mercury chelator. Though less well-known than EDTA and DMSA, zeolite clinoptilolite is a natural and versatile chelator of many heavy metals including lead, cadmium, mercury and nickel. For an optimal detox, the supplement Humic & Fulvic Acids may also be of interest. Its composition is based on texts from Ayurveda, the traditional Indian system of medicine.
“I sincerely believe that a programme of oral chelation can do more for your longevity than even the most prudent lifestyle, because of the protection if brings against our stressful and polluted world. I recommend routine consumption of oral chelators every day for the rest of your life, from the day you're old enough to swallow a supplement”. Dr Garry Gordon (Dr Gordon treats many thousands of patients a year with EDTA; he has written several books and is an authority on chelation).
