EDTA (Calcium disodium EDTA) is an amino acid and chelating agent that is used to remove heavy metals like lead, cadmium, arsenic and mercury from the body.  EDTA is also used to support a healthy heart and arterial function.

EDTA binds to toxic heavy metals, then quickly and safely removes them from the body.  Oral chelation therapy is more cost effective than IV Chelation Therapy, and uses the same proven form of this chelating amino acid (calcium disodium EDTA). 

 

About EDTA Chelation Therapy

EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid) chelation therapy with calcium disodium EDTA is used to remove heavy metals and minerals from the bloodstream. While it is primarily used for heavy metal poisoning, some studies propose that it offers cardiovascular benefits, especially in the context of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and coronary artery disease.

Here are some of the potential cardiovascular benefits that have been suggested by proponents of EDTA chelation therapy:

  1. Removal of Heavy Metals: EDTA is a chelating agent, meaning it can bind to heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and cadmium. Proponents argue that by removing these metals from the bloodstream, chelation therapy may reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, which are factors associated with cardiovascular disease.
  2. Improved Blood Flow: Many studies and health professionals argue that EDTA chelation therapy can dissolve or reduce arterial plaques, leading to improved blood flow. This, they say, could potentially benefit individuals with atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease.
  3. Antioxidant Effects: EDTA has antioxidant properties, and this may contribute to cardiovascular health by reducing oxidative damage to blood vessels and tissues.
  4. Decreased Calcium Buildup: EDTA may bind to calcium, and some proponents suggest that this action could help prevent or reduce the buildup of calcium deposits in the arteries.

In 2013, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) conducted the Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT), the first large-scale clinical trial aiming to evaluate the efficacy of EDTA chelation therapy in patients with a history of heart attack. The results of the trial showed benefits overall, but especially among patients with diabetes.

As a result of the TACT findings, the NIH and the FDA urged a second trial to confirm the results of TACT.  TACT2 was begun shortly thereafter and elected to perform only on patients with diabetes, representing the patients in TACT1 with the greatest benefit.

Before considering any supplement, including EDTA, it's important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional. They can provide guidance based on the individual's medical history, current health status, and the available scientific evidence.

Ingredients and Recommended Use

Active Ingredients: Calcium disodium EDTA (ethylenediamenetetraacetic acid).

Oral EDTA Recommendations: Take EDTA at least 2 hours apart from any meals or supplements. This is because it binds to metals and minerals 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. EDTA will draw away some minerals from your body over time, so it is a good idea to increase mineral intake.

We also recommend taking EDTA in cycles of 6 weeks on then 2 weeks off. This is for the same reason we suggest a one-a-day multi: the break will allow your body to restore its mineral content to more natural levels.
