The Intestinal Metals Detox (IMD) is a proprietary product that consists of highly purified silica carrier with covalently attached metal-binding groups. The product is insoluble and functions to bind heavy metals in the gut so that they can be safely eliminated with the bowels; this prevents both absorption of the heavy metals and the generation of free-radicals catalyzed by the metals. In fact, the product can also directly neutralized free-radicals in the gut and thus may play a role in damping gastrointestinal inflammation.
Proprietary thiol-functionalized silica
Add 1-2 scoops IMD to a soluble Vitamin C solution or Phospholipid suspension or add to food 1-2 times per day as directed by healthcare practitioner.
