Heavy Metal Detoxification

The Heavy metals, identified more frequently in the human body (mercury, cadmium, lead and/or the radioactive isotopes) with toxic adverse effects on the health and on the metabolism, have become an obvious alarm, because of their persistence in the environment by the documented potential risk for the serious health consequences (ATSDR 2000; ATSDR 2004; ATSDR 2007a, 2007b; ATSDR 2008a, 2008b; ATSDR 2011).

The Acute Heavy and/or Radioactive Metal Poisoning may lead to the deterioration of the central nervous system, the cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems, lungs, kidneys, liver, endocrine glands and bones. The chronic exposure to heavy metals and/or radiotoxic is a primary cause in numerous degenerative diseases of the same systems and may increase the risk of some cancers.

The Heavy Metals are ubiquitous in the environment. People risk overexposure to the environmental concentrations which naturally occurring (eg, arsenic-rich mineral deposits) or human activities by releasing lead or mercury as a result of industrial pollution and/or chemical or nuclear disasters.

The complete avoidance of the exposure to toxic metals is impossible. Even people who are not occupationally exposed may carry certain metals in their bodies, as a result of exposure from other sources, such as foods, beverages, or smoke, aerosols and the polluant emissions in the air.

The possibility of reducing the risk of toxicity of the heavy metals and/or radioactive isotopes and to reduce the probability of their dangerous absorption is essentially ensured through the lifestyle and complementary by methods and accepted dietetic products and food supplements from medicinal herbs that can stimulate the metabolism and therefore the vital body functions, for the safe release on natural way of the ingested heavy and/or radiotoxic metals.
