Effect of EDTA Chelation on Serum Iron

One hundred and twenty-two patients suffering from various chronic degenerative disorders were evaluated objectively for fasting serum iron values before and after EDTA (ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid) chelation plus multivitamin mineral (excluding iron) supplementation.  After 30 intravenous 3 gram treatments of EDTA, average serum iron levels dropped 17.5% (t=4.230, p<0.001).  Abnormally high initial iron decreased 43.1% (t=7.602, p<0.001), while low initial iron increased 41% (t=3.30, p<0.010).


Comment:  Recent Reports in the medical literature suggest high serum iron to be a significant risk factor for heart disease.
