Jarrow Formulas, Inc. Introduces Heavy Metal Detox(TM)

Los Angeles, CA, November 10, 2006 — Los Angeles-based Jarrow Formulas has introduced Heavy Metal Detox™, containing PectaSol Chelation Complex®, a complex of modified polyuronide dietary fibers (citrus pectin and alginate) specifically designed to tightly bind heavy metals and increase their clearance from the body. PectaSol® also has a reduced affinity for most nutritionally essential elements.
PectaSol’s® modified citrus pectin (MCP) has a unique chemical structure and optimized molecular weight that allows for maximized absorption, systemic chelation of toxic metals, and facilitation of their removal. PectaSol’s® modified alginate complements MCP by chelating toxic metals within the digestive tract and preventing their reabsorption.
“In applying years of polyuronide research to improving the natural metal-binding properties of alginate and pectin, the developers of PectaSol Chelation Complex® have designed a polyuronide formulation which promises an improvement in heavy metal detoxification potential over typical pectin or alginate preparations,” says Kevin Connolly, Ph.D., Director, Product Development and Scientific Affairs for Jarrow Formulas. “Human and animal trials of Pectasol Chelation Complex® continue to generate positive results.”
The suggested retail price (SRP) for Jarrow Formulas’ Heavy Metal Detox™ is $34.95 for 90 vegetarian capsules.
