- Each suppository contains 850 mg of CaNa(2)EDTA.
- Also features a strong dose of ascorbyl palmitate (vitamin C) for antioxidant support.
- May aid in the safe removal of heavy metals like lead, cobalt, cadmium, and more!
- Designed for use in a detailed and carefully administered detox protocol.
- Suppository application is much more convenient than typical IV administration, with comparable absorption rates.
Heavy Metals, Chelation, and Your Body
If you’ve been paying attention to the growing body of research on heavy metal detoxification, then odds are you’ve heard a thing or two about EDTA and other chelation agents. Before we get into the details of this powerful substance and how it works, let’s do a brief overview of heavy metals and the potential harm they can cause in the body.
Most people are familiar with the harmful nature of lead and mercury. While these two examples certainly rank highly among toxic heavy metals, they are only the very tip of the iceberg. There are dozens of metals in our environment which may be harmful to the body when ingested. It’s difficult to pinpoint all of the different ways in which these metals might enter the body (many are tied to specific professions). However, one common activity which almost certainly results in excessive heavy metal concentrations is the regular consumption of seafood.
Once inside the body, these metals have been known to inhibit the function of multiple physiological systems and processes, as well as promote the general proliferation of free radicals throughout the cellular structure of the body. This results in potential for numerous serious health concerns to arise.
If you are a big seafood eater, or if you exhibit symptoms of heavy metal toxicity, then finding a safe and effective means of detoxification is mostly likely a major concern for your health and well-being.
Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) is a chemical which can be found naturally in certain seasonal plants. Its synthetic forms (most notably disodium EDTA and calcium disodium EDTA) were discovered and reproduced in labs as early as 1935.
EDTA can be useful for health purposes due to its chelation properties. Chelation essentially refers to the bonding of ions and molecules in one substance (chelation agent) to metallic ions in a separate substance (chelate). This means that EDTA is capable of both attracting and binding to certain types of heavy metals.
Naturally, many scientists and health experts have sought to apply these chelation properties to the human body. The idea is that as EDTA passes through the bloodstream and/or digestive tract it will bond with toxic metals which can then be safely excreted via the urinary tract.1
A number of studies have been conducted to investigate whether or not this theory will actually work in practice. One such study even took a specific angle on the use of EDTA in the form of suppositories (as opposed to the more common method of IV injection) and has unveiled astonishingly positive results.2
Important Considerations When Using EDTA
We strongly urge you to work with a healthcare professional before supplementing with EDTA. It is important to find a detox regimen that is right for your body, and your personal level of bodily toxicity. Here are some links that may be of interest when talking to your health advisor:

Though EDTA is safe for consumption, it’s important to use EDTA responsibly by finding a detox regimen that is appropriate for your body through consultation with a healthcare professional. Excessive chelation can lead to liver damage and other complications. Irresponsible use can also leave the body deprived of crucial antioxidants and nutrients such as glutathione, taurine, melatonin, N-acetyl-L-cysteine, and vitamin C. For this reason, we recommend the following products to be used in conjunction with a EDTA detox regimen in order to supplement for any nutrient imbalances that may be caused within the body:
- Melatonin Cream or Melatonin Suppositories
- Reduced Glutathione Spray Pump
- NAC Cream
- Vitamin C and R-Lipoic Acid Drops
