Cadmium Toxicity


About
The body has a heavy concentration of cadmium. This metal is poisonous, and our bodies are not able to expel the metal in large quantities. An excessive amount of cadmium can damage multiple types of body cells.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
  • Chelation may remove poisonous metals from the body. Chelating agitators are made of material that can bond chemically with metals, minerals, or chemical toxins in the body. Chelating would actually surround the metal or mineral ion and expel it from the body via urine or feces.


Advice
  • Include zinc in your diet by eating foods like pumpkin seeds. Apple pectin and high-fiber foods are also important.
