EDTA

PRODUCT DETAILS

EDTA, Calcium Disodium Salt is used for both industrial and medicinal purposes as a ligand and chelating agent. EDTA binds metal ions and diminishes their reactivity in solution. It is known to a lesser extent as a water softener and can aid in the dissolution of limescale by binding calcium and magnesium. For iron dissolution, the reaction is pH dependent where a more acidic pH is favorable. EDTA has been known to be used in the practice of chelation therapy for treating heavy metal poisoning.

  • Chelating agent
  • Water softener
  • Antioxidant
  • Limescale remover

In chelation therapy, typical dosages are 400mg to 600mg taken orally once per day with a meal. This process should be limited to a periodic treatment and should be conducted with the supervision of a physician to ensure the desired affects are reached.

  • Limit to 30-days of use
  • Blend with food or semi-solid liquid (smoothie) due to the low solubility in water
  • Review 21CFR 172.120 for specific limitations on use in manufacturing

Additional chelation methods may be used involving DMPS and DMSA, but these are considered acutely toxic as they are extremely powerful heavy metal chelators. The result is an overloading of the kidneys and liver resulting in damage. Also, if the heavy metals are not removed from the body by excretion, they will be re-deposited in other areas of the body resulting in more damage.
