This natural chelator detoxifies the body of heavy metals.
Heavy minerals such as lead and mercury can interfere with the enzyme processes by displacing the essential mineral's nucleus or by simply precipitating the enzyme altogether. Due to changes in biochemistry from heavy metal toxins, it is important to have an extra supply of essential minerals.
Vitamin C is essential for collagen, the cement and elastin for the connective tissue of the body. It hydroxylates proline and lysine, making it possible to crosslink protein chains and form the basis for connective tissue strength. It detoxifies toxins and is effective against small viruses, bacteria of all kinds, certain fungal diseases, drug withdrawal and heavy metal poisonings. As early as 1941, Dr. Marchmont-Robinson of Chicago found that ascorbic acid relieved the symptoms of toxic lead in workers who were exposed to lead dust. Dr. Harry Holmes found that Vitamin C gave relief to people absorbing toxic minerals. Vitamin C complexed lead and aided in the removal from the body.
Sulfur containing amino acids, Cysteine and Methionine, have had success in helping the body get rid of its heavy metal burden. P. J. Kostyniak found that substances containing sulfhydryl, such as Cysteine, can remove toxic mercury from the blood quite effectively. Dr. Paul Gross found that cysteine and methionine helped combat the extreme toxicity of thallium in rats. These sulfur containing amino acids have high affinity for heavy minerals and metals and combine with them making them soluble for excretion by the kidneys.
Cysteine is a very effective scavenger of free radicals, as well as a toxic waste product detoxifier of acetaldehyde in the liver and elsewhere. It is present up to 22% in the alpha keratin protein of fingernails and toenails, and up to 41% in the more flexible keratins of skin and hair. In order to prevent the rapid conversion of cysteine to cystine, before it has performed its other valuable functions, the daily intake of Vitamin C should be approximately two to three times greater than the intake of cysteine. Vitamin C will not only inhibit the immediate oxidation of cysteine to cystine, but will also work synergistically with cysteine to detoxify acetaldehyde and remove toxic heavy metals.
Methionine, another essential, sulfur-containing amino acid, is important for blood proteins albumin and globulin to be made by the liver. The urine cannot be collected normally and swelling and edema occur without this amino acid.
Lysine is another essential amino acid which is used for optimal growth and maintenance of nitrogen equilibrium.
Lysine is used in the treatment of herpes simplex and as an anti-viral agent. Researchers found that proteins were high in Lysine in 1970. Lysine is necessary for the absorption of calcium into the body and is enchanced by Vitamin A and C and it works with collagen products which represents 30% of total body protein, and is found in connective tissue, including skin, bones, ligaments and cartilage.
Sodium Alginate impedes the absorption of poisonous metals in the intestinal tract. Dr. O. Van Der Borght reported that a colleague accidently ingested 16 mcC of Radium sulfate. She was given 15 gm of sodium alginate per day in alginated bread, and within three months, the radioactivity in the feces went from 1600 pC to l pC. The sodium alginate removed the radium from the small intestine.
Apple pectin is used to absorb organic toxins in the intestinal tract.
When sodium alginate and pectin reach the stomach, they are hydrolyzed by the stomach acid into Mannuronic Acid and Glucoronic Acid, respectively. These sugar derivatives can form complexes with heavy minerals such as radium, barium and strontium and remove them from the body. They also absorb toxins in the intestinal tract and prevent their absorption.
