Heavy Metal Chelation (remove toxic heavy metals naturally)

Add a selection of these into your daily lifestyle to naturally eliminate & displace toxic heavy metals in your body.

Top 3 to add to your lifestyle:

  1. Powdered form of Zeolite
  2. Coriander and Dark Green Leafy’s especially broccoli, kale, & spinach
  3. Chlorella

Summary (alphabetical):

  • Alpha lipoic acid: red meat / organ meats, potatoes, carrots, beets, spinach, broccoli, peas, brussels sprouts, & Brewer’s yeast. (binds to circulating heavy metals, especially mercury & lead)
  • Activated Charcoal: used in hospitals for drug overdoses, food poisoning, & toxin-exposure (adsorbs most organic & many inorganic chemicals, drugs, pesticides, mercury, & lead) n.b. you could try taking some blackstrap molasses after using if you are concerned that important minerals may also have taken from the body; although one study has shown (with ‘sheep’) that it is a myth that any nutrients are depleted by charcoal. But since we are humans, not sheep, it might be a good thing to keep in mind to be on the safe side & not use as an “everyday” supplement. 
  • Calcium (displaces mercury & lead) *
  • Chlorella (food-like all purpose mild chelator of heavy metals, particularly for safer displacing of mercury)
  • Chlorophyll: dark leafy green vegetables (binds to heavy metals)
  • Coriander / Cilantro (binds to aluminium, mercury, lead)
  • Green tea extracts rich in EGCG (binds to iron)
  • Magnesium (when consumed with calcium, helps displace mercury & lead) **
  • Pectin: green apples, cabbage, bananas, beets, grapes, carrots and the pith of citrus fruits – (mild removal of heavy metals & other contaminants) n.b. questions have been raised as to its degree of effectiveness
  • Soluble Fibre: fruits, vegetables, wholegrains, nuts, seeds, beans (helps body draw out lead)
  • Sulphur: onions, garlic, egg yolks, kelp, kale, raspberries, cabbage, mustard, MSM, Taurine, NAC (helps eliminate lead, mercury & cadmium)
  • Turmeric (binds to iron)
  • Vitamin C: citrus, broccoli, kale, parsley, brussels sprouts, watercress, cauliflower, cabbage, strawberries, spinach, etc. (displaces lead & mercury)
  • Wheatgrass: high in chlorophyll & contains vitamins A, C, E, iron, calcium, magnesium, & amino acids (binds to iron)
  • Zeolite: powdered form (adsorbs (attracts & binds) and chelates heavy metals – tested with success for: Arsenic 119%, Thallium 119%, Tungsten 99%, Lead 43%, Aluminium 43%, Cesium 41%, Barium 37% & Nickel 23%) n.b. cesium = radiation poisoning i.e. Fukashima disaster or radiation therapy

Lead-Poisoning Specific recommendations (from lead.org.au)

  1. Vitamin C, thiamine, taurine (a vitamin B6/cysteine derivative), folate, vitamin B12, garlic and the amino acids methionine and glycine may offer significant advantages to lead exposed individuals with few risks.
  2. Calcium, iron, zinc, and selenium along with vitamins B6, D and E offer large advantages along with significant offsetting risks at high doses.
  3. Good intakes of phosphorus, magnesium, copper and glutamic acid (glutamate) offer possible smaller advantages with little risk.
