Heavy Metal Detox Answers

  1. Will the ingredients also remove other toxic metals such as cadmium, nickel, and arsenic?

    Although only tested for aluminum, lead and mercury, the heavy metal detox formula will remove all heavy metals to a similar degree.

  2. Do I take a mineral supplement while doing the heavy metal detox?

    Like any chelation formula, it will chelate out a small amount of minerals, which is why Jon Barron recommends a maximum program of only 6 bottles, twice a year. Keep in mind, toxic metal levels are much less than major mineral levels in the body. By the time you remove 90% of mercury in your body, you lose only a fraction of a percent of major minerals, and they are easily replaced with diet and supplements.

  3. Should I have my amalgam fillings removed before the heavy metal detox?

    Pulling out amalgam fillings before the detox is not necessary. Simply repeat the detox slightly more often because you have a guaranteed source of mercury still in your mouth.

  4. Could some of the symptoms of heavy metals (grinding teeth at night) appear again while on the detox?

    Yes, there can be a mild exacerbation of symptoms as the mercury is being released from the body tissue by the cilantro and is in the process of being bound to the chlorella and passed out of the body. That should lessen as you continue the detox and the amount of mercury being chelated diminishes.

  5. Since these herbs remove mercury from my body, will it dissolve my fillings?

    A heavy metal chelator cannot pull out mercury pressed into a filling. All it does is break the electrical bond that ties the metals to body tissue (freeing the metals up), then binds to those freed metals and flushes them out in the urine. It has no impact on the mercury in fillings or on surgically implanted metal sutures, plates or pins.

  6. What is the difference between the 2 bottle and the 6 bottle heavy metal cleanse? And what is suggested for Phase 1 of the full body detox?

    After an initial cleanse of 6 bottles, a two bottle cleanse every 6 months should be enough to keep you relatively metal free – unless you eat a lot of high-mercury fish, or have more than a few amalgam fillings, in which case every 2-3 months is advisable. Incidentally, you do not want to use a chelation formula every day. Your body actually needs small amounts of some heavy metals.

  7. Can children take Metal Magic?

    Metal Magic from Baseline Nutritionals

    Our products are formulated for adults 18 and over, and in general we do not recommend them for use by children. You would need to check with your child’s physician about whether or not this is an appropriate product for them.

  8. Is there any harm in continuing the Metal Magic® Heavy Metal Detox past the 30 days?

    After an initial cleanse of 30-days, a 10-day heavy metal detox every 6 months should be enough to keep you in good shape - unless you eat a lot of high-mercury fish, or have more than a few amalgam fillings, in which case every 2 months is advisable. Incidentally, you do not want to use a chelation-type formula every day. Your body actually needs small amounts of some heavy metals.

  9. Will Metal Magic dissolve the metal fillings in my teeth and affect my dental work?

    No. Metal Magic will not affect your dental work or any artificial implants in your body.

  10. Is Metal Magic safe for someone who is pregnant?

    Metal Magic as is true of most detox formulas, is not recommended while pregnant because it may temporarily release toxins into the bloodstream, which can then make their way to the fetus.

  11. Is the Chlorella in Metal Magic absolutely free from any metals and other contaminants?

    Our chlorella is grown in a liquid nutrient medium made from purified water and toxin-free nutrient chemicals, including trace elements.

  12. I would like to order Metal Magic, but I am gluten-intolerant. Is the grain alcohol used in this formula gluten-free?

    There is no gluten in the alcohol. Alcohol is made through a distillation process. Gluten protein, a solid, is not distilled with the alcohol.

  13. I don't know how much Metal Magic to take. Should I be taking four drops, or four droppers full?

    The proper amount of Metal Magic to take is four droppers full, three times a day. A droppers full is equal to 1 ml.

  14. Will Metal Magic remove other metals such as cadmium, nickel and arsenic?

    Metal Magic removes heavy metals which would include things like cadmium, nickel and arsenic.

  15. Pertaining to the instructions, how much is a 'dropper' or 'dropperful'?

    One dropper equals 1 ml, as marked on the dropper.

  16. I can't use your tinctures because they have alcohol in them, what should I do?

    You can eliminate most of the alcohol in the tinctures by adding the tincture dose to some warm water. As the water cools most of the alcohol will evaporate.

  17. Should I take this supplement between meals or with food? Will it be more effective if taken on an empty stomach?

    The tincture is not necessarily more effective on an empty stomach, but absorption into the bloodstream will be much faster if taken without food.

  18. Is the chlorella "broken cell wall" chlorella?

    Yes, the Chlorella in the Metal Magic™ is "broken cell wall" chlorella.

    You state above that a detox should be done more often if you have more than a few amalgam fillings. Why is this? What would cause the mercury to leak into your system from them? You state above also that a Heavy metal chelator could not not even pull out the mercury in the filling, so why else would be doing it to create a detox more often as you state? Thank You, Lee

    Great question! Yes, the heavy metal chelator will not pull mercury out of a filling by itself, but that does not mean that your amalgam fillings are not constantly releasing mercury vapor caused by the act of chewing food--and the more you have, the more mercury is released DAILY. There have been over 12,000 papers published to date elucidating the dangers of amalgam fillings, but the most compelling of those studies detailed the use of radioactively tagged amalgam fillings in a controlled experiment. In less than thirty days, substantial levels of the tagged mercury was found throughout the body and brain, especially in the liver and kidneys. Studies have shown that within a month of receiving amalgam fillings, kidney function is reduced by well over 50 percent.  Today, even the FDA is starting to give warnings:  https://jonbarron.org/article/fda-cracks-amalgam-filling-cabal

    You say that the Metal Magic shouldn't be taken every day... is that still the case for the first 6-bottle detox? If so, how often should you take it? Every other day?

    Hi Melissa,

    It just means you want to stick to the detox schedule--either the 6 week detox or 2 week maintenance schedule--and then give your body a rest.  Some people believe you have to detox daily, throughout the year, 24/7.  We do not recommend that.  While detoxing, yes, you do take it daily, as it instructs. 

    Hope that helps,

    Sandy

    This article is just a sales pitch with bad advice.

    1. Why would you detox while still having amalgam fillings? That’s like trying to scoop water out of a sinking boat. REMOVE the source of toxins FIRST!

    2. You’re not going to remove much heavy metals on a 30 day detox. It can take years to fully detox.

    First, not EVERYONE wants to get all their amalgam fillings removed, so should they just not detox at all?  And fillings are not always the main source of heavy metals anyway.  Second, you need to do your research on removing heavy metals.  Years to detox?  You are obviously doing something not that effective.  See clinical study on removing heavy metals in 42 days and how it works.

    Hi,
    I have a mining lab, doing chem and fire assays. About 15 years ago my blood pressure and pulse rate dropped. If I did anything physical I would get dizzy. Fortunately a friend recognized my problem. Started detoxing program. Checking my urine using color metrics and using a time weight average for background, and checking my urine for gamma radiation. My urine was three times background in gamma radiation along with lead, iron, mercury, several others I tested for. After several months of detox, my blood pressure and heart rate returned to normal. About ready to go again, will your detox program work for me?

    Yes. Please read the article Why Do a Heavy Metal Cleanse?: "Chlorella possesses the capacity to absorb heavy metals... In studies undertaken in Germany, high doses of chlorella have been found to be very effective in eliminating heavy metals from the body – from the brain, intestinal wall, muscles, ligaments, connective tissue, and bone."
