Natural chelators occur in this two ingredients helps to remove mercury from our bodies.
Here 3 TOP HM Detox supplements
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA)
ALA is the most biologically active form of Lipoic Acid and is the form that the body produces. A powerful antioxidant and mercury chelator, it is soluble in both fat and water. The fact that mercury has a high affinity for fatty tissue makes alpha lipoic acid one of the most important of the body’s naturally produced chelators of mercury for removing mercury from the brain. Even though ALA may be more effective than glutathione at removing mercury from the brain, the body doesn’t produce nearly as much of it as it does glutathione.
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)
NAC is promoted as the “anti-mercury” supplement because it plays such a vitally important role in supporting the body’s efforts to remove mercury. By itself, NAC is considered to be a powerful antioxidant, but its greatest value to a mercury detoxification program is that it increases the body’s production of glutathione (GSH). GSH is the body’s most important and prevalent mercury removing antioxidant.
Selenium is a trace mineral. It plays an important role in the production of glutathione, protects heart cells, and is essential to the normal functioning of the immune system. Selenium also functions as a powerful antioxidant, working in conjunction with vitamin E. It’s up to 500 times more potent as an antioxidant than vitamin E and is believed to be a unique chelator of mercury.
