ALGAS

METAL DETOX

FOR RESOLVING THE PRESENCE OF HEAVY METALS IN THE BODY

Download PDF

General Description

Algas produced from an extract of Chondracanthus chamissoi, red algae collected in the Pacific Ocean off the Peruvian coast. It has been used for decades in Peru as a detoxification aid. Practitioners that have used the product report that it helps to very effectively mobilize heavy metals out of the body, including Aluminum, Arsenic, Cadmium, Indium, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, and Radium. Doctors using it theorizes that it mobilizes the heavy metals out of the interior of the cells since many of the patients that are taking Algas had previously gone through an extensive heavy metal chelation protocol to the point where there were no more metals coming out. When Algas was added, more metals began to come out of the body.

Algas: Heavy metal detox

The biomass of marine algae has been reported to have high biosorption capacities for a number of heavy metal ions. In this study, four species of red seaweeds Corallina mediterranea, Galaxaura oblongata, Jania rubens and Pterocladia capillacea were examined to remove Co(II), Cd(II), Cr(III) and Pb(II) ions from aqueous solution.
