Discontinued? Why?

Posted by Reviewer2569630 on May 25, 2012 | Verified Purchase

This is a great product and the most effective mercury chelator on the market. I was about to order some but I noticed it's been discontinued. I can't believe it! Hey, iherb are you losing the plot?

In low doses for children

Posted by Reviewer3217150 on Feb 23, 2012 | Verified Purchase

It is effective for my child. We see the results. We only give him once a week - 50 mg in the morning and 50 mg in the afternoon. Or 50 mg on Friday and 50 Saturday morning.

Clears toxic metals

Posted by Reviewer3189121 on Oct 01, 2011 | Verified Purchase

First of all, in the 5 months I have used the 250 mg version of this product, the toxic levels of lead, mercury, and barium I had in my body have been significantly reduced and I'm feeling healthier than I have in years. The results were confirmed with a pre and post urine test done using DMSA and DMPS. Secondly, I would never use this product without the supervision/ care of a qualified medical professional. I personally worked with a naturopath. She monitored my kidneys to make sure they were not over taxed since toxic metals are eliminated through the kidneys. She also had me taking the Captomer/DMSA for 2 days on and then 5 days off. I was also taking many other support nutrients and I was doing colonics or coffee enemas as well. I just don't think it is wise to try a metal detox program on your own. That being said, I'm very grateful to be able to purchase this product at iherb. My Naturopath is having me stay on the program for another 3 months and then we will test again. For years I've had issues with chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, multiple chemical sensitivities, and candida. All of those issues are greatly improved and I feel like I have a whole new lease on life.

I took two 250mg capsules one day and felt relief from my toxicity symptoms. Cilantro and Chlorella did not provide the same relief. My current protocol is based on the Andrew Cutler Protocol and includes Alpha Lipotic Acid. These 100mg capsules allow me to take 100mg every 3-4 hours unlike the 250mg capsules. According to the Protocol I am on it's ideal to keep a steady dose as DMSA leaves the blood stream 2-3 hours after ingestion. Also keep in mind that you need to cycle the DMSA (example 4 days on 4 day off). So far the greatest improvement has been in my ability to stay focused and read. I used to read for hours and hours and slowly I am getting back there. I am grateful to Thorne for making an effective product and Andrew Cutler for provided a well researched protocol.

I placed my order at 12:55 pm, and needed to receive my supplements the next day. I placed them for next-day AM, and did indeed receive them the next morning by 10 am. I was so relieved!
