Liquid chelation is a substance comprised of multiple compounds called chelates which are used for various health issues. Medicinal uses include widening the arteries to prevent buildup and helping to remove toxins and metals from the bloodstream. It should only be used under the supervision of a doctor, as it can cause some side effects when taken improperly.

One of the main uses for liquid chelation is to widen the arteries in patients with plaque buildup and heart issues. This helps blood to move more freely and can help prevent a first or recurrent heart attack. Since blood flow should be strictly monitored, it is advised that patients follow their doctor’s dosing instructions carefully.

Liquid chelation is also used to help those with normal arteries to move toxins through and out of the blood faster. This works in much the same way, by opening the arteries. In those with normally functioning blood flow, this allows the blood to move even more quickly than normal to allow the toxins to be moved from the body faster and more efficiently. This is generally used in cases of heavy metal poisoning, such as lead or mercury.

Cancer patients have more recently been given liquid chelation therapies because with certain forms of the illness iron buildup is common due to frequent blood transfusions. Medications may also cause toxic buildup which could be benefited by chelation therapy. Studies are still being done to note the effectiveness of these tactics, but promising results have occurred in some patients.

Many experts say that liquid chelation is more effective than the pill versions because liquids are typically better absorbed into the body. This is true for many medications and supplements. They may also be healthier because they do not require the same preparation and added ingredients as tablet or capsule forms would require, and are more easily digested by the body.

Liquid form may also be easier for some patients to swallow, as there are many who have problems effectively swallowing pills or large capsules. Liquid chelation has the added benefit of being able to be used in an intravenous line so that it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream rather than having to wait for it to be digested. This is especially important for those who are threatened with serious heart conditions or metal poisoning who require immediate treatment.
