Chelation Chelation describes a particular way that ions and molecules bind metal ions.[1] According to the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), chelation involves the formation or presence of two or more separate coordinate bonds between a polydentate (multiple bonded) ligand and a single central atom.[2] Usually these ligands are organic compounds, and are called chelants, chelators, chelating agents, or sequestering agents. Chelation is useful in applications such as providing nutritional supplements, in chelation therapy to remove toxic metals from the body, as contrast agents in MRI scanning, in manufacturing using homogeneous catalysts, and in fertilizers. Chelate effect[edit] The chelate effect describes the enhanced affinity of chelating ligands for a metal ion compared to the affinity of a collection of similar nonchelating (monodentate) ligands for the same metal.

6 Foods for Natural Heavy Metal Chelation Heavy metals can do significant damage to the body. Historically, they’ve been used as “an instrument of murder” (in the case of arsenic) and instruments of war.

The good news is that there are natural ways to chelate heavy metals from your body.

Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Plan - Prevention and Population Health - Department of Health and Human Services On 1 September 2015 the Minister for Health released the government’s Victorian public health and wellbeing plan 2015–2019.

Jackfruit: Can This Nutritional Powerhouse Prevent Widespread Famine? 3rd July 2016 By Carolanne Wright Contributing writer for Wake Up World Unlike the United States — where self-sufficiency and food security is persecuted — the government of Venezuela is pushing its population to grow urban gardens and raise chickens in response to severe food shortages. Chelation: Therapy or "Therapy"? Lead, mercury, and arsenic serve no function in the human body. If they accumulate in large enough amounts, they cause poisoning. Other metals which are essential to human function can become toxic if they accumulate in large amounts; examples include iron and copper. Effects differ according to the metal involved, whether it is introduced into the body by ingestion, inhalation, or skin contact, and the age of the victim. People with very high levels of these heavy metals are treated with drugs called "chelators" [KEY-lay-ters].
