Metal-Free is an oral chelation agent for toxic heavy metals that is entirely natural and is derived from naturally occurring substances.
The active ingredients in Metal-Free are a collection of unique peptides produced by a process called microfermentation. Beneficial soil and marine bacteria are specially combined in a “nutrient broth” under exact conditions. The peptides are nanometer in size which the body “sees” as nutrients and therefore they penetrate the mucosa easily. Additionally, since the surfaces of the Metal-Free peptides are negatively charged, they are naturally attracted to the positively charged surface of mucosal cells which enhances absorption.
Once in the tissues, the peptides bind available heavy metals via three bonds (ionic, covalent and hydrogen) virtually removing it from its tissue binding site. Based on this chemical affinity, we have evidence to show that it will pull mercury more effectively than intravenous DMPS + vitamin C, or oral DMSA. These chelators only bond ionically, which is less secure.
The metals bound by Metal-Free are eliminated from the body almost totally via the bile-bowel route. This is the natural way the body detoxifies heavy metals. Urine levels remain low and the delicate glomerulus of the kidney is not stressed by the detoxification program. The feces or hair are the optimum way to monitor the amount of heavy metals being eliminated by Metal-Free.
