Effectiveness of Oral EDTA Chelation.
Please note this refers to EDTA in liquid form and NOT EDTA pills or capsules, pills and capsules do not have the absorption rate of liquids and will in some way be affected by the gastric process.
When taken in liquid form by mouth EDTA and other amino acids with a similar molecular weight, pass through the stomach unaffected, it is then processed through the epithelium cells of the duodenum. EDTA and other amino acids have been incorrectly referenced by those who are ignorant of the biochemistry and assimilation of proteins made from chains of amino acids and unattached free form amino acids that they occur in the duodenum and so are unaffected by stomach acids and gastric juices.
Stomach acidity has nothing to do with the digestion of proteins as it is known that this takes place via an enzymatic reaction. In fact, the pH of the stomach when secreting HCL is generally around 3.0 (note: EDTA in solution form can exhibit a pH of 4.0 all on its own), which has absolutely no affect on the molecular bonds of Free Form Amino Acids (including EDTA) and thus, cannot and will not destroy them.
EDTA targets a number of unwanted substances in the body that can cause LDL Cholesterol and calcium plaque in the arteries, it then renders them harmless and prepares them for excretion through the urine. Chelation Therapy is a process that cleans the cardiovascular system by helping the body cleanse the arteries as well as detoxify the liver and kidneys.
