There is a simple, economical and effective way of ridding the body of all of these undesirable organisms, debris and metals with advancing age --- IP6 rice bran extract.
IP6 is inositol hexaphosphate (also called phytic acid), which is found in every cell of the human body, is one molecule of inositol and six of phosphate and is found naturally in whole grains (bran), seeds and nuts. IP6 is known as nature’s master mineral chelator (remover).
IP6 is another of the many natural molecules that both conventional and alternative health practitioners continue to overlook. Researchers from around the world indicate they are searching for metal chelating agents to prevent or treat disease but fail to employ IP6 rice bran extract which is safe and economical. Conventional medicine’s narrow use of patented drugs rather than natural remedies blinds many health practitioners from the use of natural remedies such as IP6.
IP6, extracted from rice bran, is available as a dietary supplement and natural chelator of metals from living tissues. As a dietary supplement, IP6 is documented as a cleanser of arteries, the heart, brain, kidneys, liver, gall bladder (stones), and many other tissues. Here is the evidence for your review.
IP6 cleanses heavy metals
IP6 attaches to heavy metals such as mercury, lead and cadmium, as well as loose iron, copper and calcium. [J Agriculture Food Chemistry 47: 4714-17, 999] IP6 is a selective chelator -- it does not attach to potassium, sodium or magnesium, important electrolyte minerals required for heart rhythm. IP6 does not remove calcium from bones or iron from red blood cells. Once chelated (attached), these excess minerals are excreted via the urinary tract. [Crit Rev Food Sci Nutr. 35:495-508, 1995]
Thank you so much!! I am relieved to hear that eating phytic acid - as IP-6 or whole grain foods - only removed heavy metals and excess iron/calcium.
I didnt see zinc mentioned, which is what got me started on this whole subject.
I read that PA leads to zinc not being absorbed and to zinc deficiency which is a wide spread problem. Our soil is deficient in zinc as it is and we have too much copper, leading to copper toxicity or over load in many.
I was just thinking, does the phytic acid in grains only reduce uptake of the minerals that are IN the grain eaten?
If so, then part of it would still be absorbed, versus refined flour products which have no phytic acid but also no minerals anymore.
Also, if it only affects the minerals WITHIN the grain consumed and NOT supplemental minerals or minerals from other foods consumed with it which are rich in minerals but have no phytic acid then I don't see a problem.
Example: If I eat beef which is rich in zinc together with whole wheat couscous which contains some zinc as well as PA, then the zinc from the meat would be absorbed just fine.
