EDTA #1210 – 100 caps 600 mg. per capsule
EDTA (Calcium disodium) is a proven chelating agent that can bind and render inactive certain trace minerals. Because of its ability to grab and remove unwanted metals, it is has been used to treat acute lead poisoning for several decades.
EDTA has long been used in a process called chelation therapy to remove unwanted metals and trace minerals from the circulatory system. Intravenous chelation therapy administers the EDTA directly into the bloodstream in an effort to reduce atherosclerotic plaque and eliminate it through the urinary tract. Specifically, it is believed to remove the calcium and other minerals that promote plaque formation. When plaque builds up in blood vessels, blood flow is restricted to all the body’s organs, including the heart. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than 2,600 Americans each day. It is estimated that over 61 million Americans have some form of cardiovascular disease, which includes high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and congestive heart failure. Other organs, including the brain, kidney, and lungs can also be affected by plaque buildup and atherosclerosis because the flow of oxygen and essential nutrients is restricted.
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), both components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), are sponsoring the Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT). TACT is their 2nd large-scale, multi-center study to assess the safety and effectiveness of EDTA chelation therapy for individuals with coronary artery disease. Oral chelation therapy with Arizona Natural EDTA is a great alternative to intravenous chelation therapy, using the same type of EDTA as intravenous therapy practitioners (calcium disodium). It is also much more cost effective and does not involve weekly appointments at an office.
Oral Chelation Therapy Recommendations: Take EDTA at least 2 hours apart from any meals or supplements. This is because it chelates indiscriminately, meaning if there are other minerals in the system it will bind to those before reaching the desired area. 2-3 capsules a day for 10 days = 1 intravenous session (approx). Replenish depleted minerals by adding a multivitamin and mineral supplement. Over time, certain mineral levels may become low during chelation therapy, taking a one-a-day multi will help keep those mineral levels stable. It should be taken in cycles, 6 weeks on then 2 weeks off. For the same reason we suggest the multi, cycling will allow the body time to recover naturally.

Chelation Therapy is a process in which a substance is used to bind molecules, such as metals or minerals, and hold them tightly so that they can be removed from the body. Chelation has been scientifically proven to rid the body of excess or toxic metals. For example, a person who has lead poisoning may be given chelation therapy in order to bind and remove lead from the body before it can cause damage.
With EDTA chelation therapy, the substance that binds and removes metals and minerals is EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), a synthetic amino acid that is often delivered intravenously. EDTA was first used shortly after WWII for the treatment of heavy metal poisoning. Calcium disodium EDTA chelation removes heavy metals and minerals from the blood, such as lead, iron, copper, and calcium, and is approved by the FDA for use in treating lead poisoning and toxicity from other heavy metals. Although disodium EDTA it is not approved by the FDA to treat coronary heart disease (CHD), some physicians and alternative medicine practitioners have recommended its use in chelation as a way to treat CHD.
A couple easy steps will help ensure you get the full impact of EDTA.
- EDTA is most effective when taken on an empty stomach. This is because EDTA will begin binding to the first minerals it comes in contact with, so keeping it away from minerals in your stomach during absorption will help save the EDTA molecule’s effectiveness for where you want it (the bloodstream).
- Follow recommended dosage (2 caps twice per day) and supplement with a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement. (Take separately from EDTA). A mineral-rich one-a-day will help replenish natural and healthy mineral levels that may get slightly depleted with regular EDTA use.
- Cycle on and off EDTA. We recommend 6 weeks on followed by 2 weeks off. This is for the same reason we recommend a multivitamin and mineral supplement, 2 weeks off after prolonged regular use will allow your body time to naturally resupply itself with the proper mineral levels that may become depleted by EDTA.
CaNa2 EDTA (Calcium disodium ethylenediamenetetraacetic acid) is the most common form of EDTA used in chelation therapy and the one with the history of safe and effective use. There are a couple other compounds commonly referred to as EDTA, so when it comes to chelation therapy, make sure it’s Calcium disodium EDTA.
Amazon.com:5.0 out of 5 stars Removes heavy metals thus lessens joint pain By Buzz Avery on November 24, 2017: "Removes heavy metals from the body. Heavy metals come from things like air, water, fertilizers, and fish for example. The drip version is approved by the FDA." 5.0 out of 5 stars Poor circulation in feet reduced. By David McGrew on June 20, 2017: "Have been taking this along with Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide in pill form for about 5 months. The swelling and poor circulation in my feet has been reduced by about 50 to 60 percent already. I now notice that I can see the veins again in my feet, and hair has started to grow back again around the ankle area and on my feet as well where it had stopped growing. Also my feet are no longer a ghostly white color from poor circulation." 5.0 out of 5 stars Save my gut. By David Power on April 20, 2017: "EDTA is a biofilm breaker among its other properties. It makes antibiotics work better and helps with gut problems."
