At the bottom of the periodic table we find the ultra heavy metals (F block elements) like Gadolinium, Uranium and Plutonium. If you’ve ever had an MRI with contrast agents, that’s Gadolinium. 6 out of the 7 contrast agents use linear (weak) chelators not a macrocyclic (strong) chelator to bind to the Gadolinium. As a result, they can release Gadolinium into the tissues and can cause problems for years. Ultra heavy metals like Gadolinium need a special chelator that is large enough to wrap around them without re-depositing them somewhere else. One such chelator may be Tetraazacyclododdecane Tetraacetic acid (DOTA). That’s a fancy way of saying it’s EDTA but stretched out to be big enough to grab onto these ultra heavy metals. Captimet contains DOTA.
Ingredients: Tetraazacyclododecane tetraacetic acid, sunflower lecithin, MCT, phosphatidyl choline, ethanol, glycerine, plant cellulose, candellia wax and purified water.
