QuickSilver Scientific Intestinal Metals Detox (IMD) is a proprietary product that consists of highly purified silica carrier with covalently attached metal-binding groups.
The product is insoluble and functions to bind heavy metals in the gut so that they can be safely eliminated with the bowels, preventng both absorption of the heavy metals and the generation of free-radicals catalyzed by the metals. This product can also directly neutralize free-radicals in the gut and may play a role in damping gastrointestinal inflammation. Both the silica base and the binding agent are GRAS (generally recognized as safe) for use in food, but since the binding agent is firmly attached to the insoluble silica, it is not absorbed and thus not bioavailable.
The product contains no known allergens and no allergic reactions have been reported to date.
The general course of use is 4-6 months as a basic cleanse, up to a year for deeper cleansing. Periodic use after the main cleanse (one month two times per year) is helpfu
Add 1-2 scoops IMD to a soluble Vitamin C solution or Phospholipid suspension or add to food 1-2 times per day as directed by healthcare practitioner. For liquids, stir to create a suspension and drink quickly before IMD settles, preferable on an empty stomach. Take with small amount of food if a stomach upset occurs. For sensitive patients, start with half a scoop per day, and work up to the full dosage. Children 12 and under: 1/2 scoop, or as tolerated.
