EDTA is a synthetic amino acid that has proven to be the best broad-based heavy metal chelator with very few adverse effects. The half-life of EDTA in the body, via the rectal route of administration, can be up to eight hours, and is excreted through feces and urine within 24 hours; almost none of the Kelate4Life EDTA is metabolized. Since the vast majority of the EDTA will be broken down and not utilized when taken orally, the rectal route of administration is more effective. This allows it to bypass the gastro-intestinal tract all together, resulting in a very high utilization rate. Rectal (suppository) delivery also results in a majority of the EDTA bypassing the liver and kidneys on the first pass, putting less stress on these organs and allowing the EDTA to remain in the body longer, extending the binding effect with the harmful metals.
Always work with your doctor when taking Kelate4Life and all nutritional supplements.
Dosage and Use:
It is recommended and safe to use Kelate4Life suppositories once nightly (for at least 90 days) for a good initial detoxification. Depending upon your level of exposure or toxicity, you may need to use Kelate4Life for up to 180 days or more.
Insert one Kelate4Life suppository nightly right before bedtime, this allows the EDTA to diffuse throughout your body while your metabolism is slowest, giving the EDTA more time to chelate.
Kelate4Life may also be utilized at other times during the day if necessary.
It is recommended to use Kelate4Life 2 – 3 hours after your last meal. This provides adequate time to produce a bowel movement, thus removing any excess matter in the rectum and reducing any potential metabolic competition.
If possible, avoid a bowel movement for at least 2 hours after inserting the Kelate4Life suppository.
Using Kelate4Life on a less frequent basis will not cause any problems but it may take longer to achieve the desired results.
It is strongly advised to utilize a good, natural multivitamin/mineral while chelating. Vitamin/mineral supplementation should be separated from Kelate4Life use by 8 hours to prevent removing minerals you are trying to replace.
It is very important to drink a good quantity of filtered/purified water during the day to help with the flushing of harmful metals from your body.
A good intestinal cleanse is highly recommended. It is also important to detoxify your liver and kidneys to receive maximum benefit from Kelate4Life.
A good whole food diet, while avoiding processed food as much as possible, also promotes efficiency in detoxification. Foods high in unnatural additives, high fructose corn syrup, MSG, sodium or sugar should be avoided.
It is recommended that you always attempt to move your bowels prior to inserting the suppository(s) to avoid discharging of the suppository before the suppository can be totally absorbed.
If inserted while lying on one’s side, consider remaining in the supine position for 10 minutes following insertion.
If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product

Adverse Effects: Negative effects normally associated with IV EDTA are absent or reduced with the usage of Kelate4Life EDTA suppositories. Renal excretory functions should be within normal limits prior to treatment. If not, please consult your health care professional. The following negative effects may occur when using Kelate4Life suppositories: headache, nasal congestion or draining, dizziness, skin rash, fatigue, nausea, or a bit of rectal discomfort. These symptoms are associated with the detoxification process but are uncommon and usually transient. Renal toxicity, such as found with IV EDTA is not present in suppository administration. The most common complaints experienced in the first few applications are loose stool and gas.
Precautions: Based on clinical observations with health care professionals who recommend EDTA suppositories to their patients, EDTA has been shown to cause a lowering of blood sugar and insulin requirements in patients with diabetes. Diabetic patients should check their insulin and glucose levels during EDTA treatment. Kelate4Life exhibits no known adverse renal, hepatic cardiovascular, gastrointestinal or nervous system effects. Safe use of EDTA in pregnancy has not been established with respect to adverse effects on fetal development. It is not recommended that Kelate4Life be used by women who are or may become pregnant unless the potential benefits outweigh the possible hazards.
