CheleX is a formula which supports removal of heavy metals in the body.
What CheleX is best for:
Xymogen CheleX may be used for the following:
- Supports Removal of Body Stores of Heavy Metals
- Binds to Metallic Elements and Assists in the Maintenance of a Normal Balance of Metal Elements in the Cells
- Support for protection against heavy metal-induced free radical damage
How CheleX works:
DMSA is a non-toxic, water soluble 2,3,-dimercaptosuccinic acid employed as a metal chelator since the 1950's. Containing two sulfhydryl groups, this relatively stable compound with high affinity for the toxic metal, penetrates into tissue deposits of the metal, only minimally reacts with essential biological molecules and rapidly eliminates the chelated toxic metal through urine and stool.
EDTA, Ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid is a weak, synthetic amino acid and perhaps the most well known and often used chelating agent. EDTA has the ability to bind with virtually every metal in the Periodic Table. There is benefit in combining EDTA with other chelators because alone it acts slowly and could potentially lead to redeposition of metals. It is important to replace beneficial minerals such as zinc, copper, iron, cobalt and manganese that are bound by the EDTA.
Cilantro (Coriandrum sativum) (Chinese parsley, coriander) suppresses the deposition of lead by chelating the metal. A sorbent prepared from cilantro was found to have good efficiency in removing organic and methyl mercury from aqueous solutions.
Chlorella, green algae has demonstrated the ability to take up toxic metals in its environment decreasing resorption of heavy metals excreted into the gut from the liver-biliary system.
Garlic in a variety of forms has been shown by researchers to be beneficial in the management of heavy metal toxicity.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) has the ability to interact with reactive oxygen species (ROS) and stimulate the body to produce glutathione enhancing cell survival after exposure to heavy metals or toxins.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is mostly known for its attribute as a powerful antioxidant. However, it may also directly chelate heavy metals especially copper, arsenic, cadium and to a small degree, mercury.
Do not take if pregnant or lactating.
Keep out of reach of children.
