The Ultimate in Heavy
Derived from naturally occurring substances, including sea minerals, algae extract, and amino acids, Metal-Free is an oral chelation agent that detoxifies the body of harmful heavy metals. Heavy metals are associated with an oxidation process that breaks down healthy cells, causing tissue damage in the body.
The active ingredients in Metal-Free are produced through a process of microfermentation. In this process, soil and marine bacteria are combined in a special "nutrient broth," which then form peptides with cage-like structures that irreversibly bind the heavy metals in the body, subsequently eliminating them.
Microactivated algae, lactobacillus and bifidus extracts
This is a culture of bacteria involved in a microfermentation process with algae and the following nutrients. Certain nutrients from the culture are then extracted and filtered using a four-step process.
Peptidylgluconase is an enzyme with binding properties produced by the lactobacilli during fermentation. It is also involved in glucose metabolism.
Glycine is a component of a vital bile acid, and along with glutamic acid and cysteine, makes up glutathione, a free radical fighter and key detoxifier of the liver.
Ionic sea minerals
An ionic mineral is an element that has either positive or negative charge. Ionic minerals are part of a process that allows the body to facilitate changes that move nutrients to the areas that need them. The body relies on ionic minerals and trace elements to conduct and generate billions of tiny electrical impulses. It has long been known that the blood contains the same minerals as are found in seawater.
Hydrated colloidal silica
Silica is found in every living substance on earth, and is a vital component to the health and regeneration of human cells. It is a basic constituent for proper body function and a key element in the following body components: the lungs, the spleen, the lymph nodes, the blood, connective tissues, the nails, the hair, the skin, the skeletal system (bones), the blood vessels, cartilage and tendons.
Glutathione is a small peptide that dumps free radicals as well as being an antioxidant, heavy metal detoxifier, protector of red blood cell integrity and a transporter of various proteins. It also helps to regenerate vitamin C.
As an antioxidant, Vitamin C can help prevent damage to DNA, lipids and proteins caused by free radical molecules. Studies have shown that Vitamin C can also help remove heavy metals.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance with physiological therapeutic activity. It is a highly viscous substance with numerous biological functions that is found in a variety of body tissues. In the body, it is part of a jelly-like complex necessary for transportation of essential nutrients from the bloodstream, via the capillary network, to the living cells of the skin.
Fulvic, Ferulic and Lipoic Acids
Fulvic acids are excellent natural chelators and are vitally important in the nutrition of cells. Ferulic acid is an organic acid, and its major physiological role is likely to be its potent antioxidant and photo-protective function. Lipoic acid has been used for many years to protect the liver and to help detoxify the body of heavy metals, such as excessive copper and iron and toxic metals such as cadmium, lead and mercury.
Numerous studies have been done on chlorella's detoxifying effect on cadmium, heavy metals, PCBs and chlordecone (a harmful insecticide).
Despite being little known, N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is a powerful antioxidant and a powerful tool in maintaining immunity. It also can detoxify heavy metals such as mercury, lead and cadmium.
*Vitamin C in nanogram amounts.
*Chlorella: Metal-Free has been analyzed by King James Medical and Doctor's Data laboratories for mercury contamination (as well as other heavy metals) and was shown to be free of such contamination. We also regularly perform Quality Control and in-office testing to monitor the product and ensure no heavy metals are present in Metal-Free.
