Oral Chelation Reviews
What is Oral Chelation
Oral chelation is the solubilization of a metal salt by forming
a chemical complex or sequestering. One way of doing this is with
ethylenediaminetetra-acetic acid (EDTA) salts, which have a multidentate
spiral ligand form that can surround metallic and other ions.
The term "oral" simply refers to "mouth."
When you take something "orally," you take it into the
mouth. Hence, the word oral chelation. This word can be contrasted
with "intravenous" which is a word that means that something
enters your body through a vein rather than through your mouth.
"Intravenous" actions (including IV Chelation) are
generally done by a doctor or a nurse who sticks a needle in a
vein, often in your wrist.
The word "chelation" starts with the Greek Root of
this word - chele. Chele, in Greek, means the claw part of a crab
or lobster. So, "chele" refers to a grabbing action.
When combined, getting "chelation" you simply have a
word that means the "grabbing action" of some substance.
Oral chelation is dispelling substances by taking the preparation
The ingredients which make oral chelation "work" are
Cysteine, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine and EDTA.
EDTA is an important ingredient in oral chelation. It has a chemical
and physical characteristic that it is attracted to heavy particles.
It is not quite like a magnetic attraction, but in any event when
there is EDTA in your blood stream, and some heavy particle (such
as a particle of lead, mercury, iron, etc.), the EDTA and the
heavy particle come together such that the heavy particle is coated
with the EDTA, and passed out by your system
EDTA is an artificial amino acid, and since the body regards
it as a foreign substance, the body eliminates the entire particle
- the heavy particle coated with EDTA.
The body can't tell that underneath the coating is some material
(iron mixed with carbon, perhaps) which the body might be willing
to keep even though it is harmful to the body. So, this coated
EDTA particle gets sent to the kidney and you urinate it out into
the toilet. You just got rid of some heavy particles.
EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) is a common sequestrant
and antioxidant which is a part of oral chelation. This oral chelation
is added to foods, body care, and household products.
The oral chelation also occurs as disodium calcium EDTA, tetrasodium
EDTA, and disodium dihydrogen EDTA. As a sequestrant, this oral
chelation binds trace minerals such as copper, iron and nickel
that may be in the product. If not inactivated, these minerals
will lead to discoloration, rancidity and textural breakdown.
When added as an antioxidant, EDTA prevents oxygen from causing
color changes and rancidity.
