Nickel Toxicity


About
The body needs some nickel in order to function properly, but too much nickel results in toxicity. Nickel is absorbed through different means - skin absorption, inhalation, and ingestion. Sources of nickel include foods, jewelry, prostheses, cigarette smoke, etc. Excess nickel in the body may cause dermatitis ("nickel itch"), respiratory problems, thyroid problems, and possible heart attack.


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.
  • Nickel is allergenic you can find nickel in zippers, watch bands, earrings and other everyday items. If you have pierced ear wear 14-karat gold or higher posts.
  • To remove toxic from the body use chelation.
