Never has been just for cooking
I’ve been using for almost a year now and NOT for cooking! Look up the history of this product. Japanese used it after WWII to counter the effects of our atomic bomb. Strongest known natural detox, primarily used for radiation and heavy metal poisoning. I’ve tried many detoxes on the market. ALL at least increased my abdominal pain and many increased my vomiting and some even led to my spitting up blood and it came out the other end, too! So far NO SIDE EFFECTSS!!! My fatigue has lessoned, more mentally alert, pain seems to have subsided, also.
I fill my own empty capsules. O size and take 1 in the a.m. and again in the p.m.
for mercury detox, easy on the stomach
I bought this to detox from mercury (bad dental work). It is an alternative to chlorella which made me so sick I threw up all night. Yes even the so-called split-membrane chlorella made me just as sick. EDTA did not make me throw up but made me so nauseous I had to stop taking it. I had no problem whatsoever with the sodium alginate. I bought some empty capsules (large), fill them up, and take one or two a day. From the start my mental clarity has improved. Without the constant brain fog I can actually plan and get things done. It is not a miracle improvement but I can tell the difference. I do take cilantro sometimes too which is helping to get it out of the tissues, and then the alginate binds to it to flush it out of the body so it doesn’t just recirculate. I still have one huge filling left which for various reasons I am not ready to have taken out right now. So I don’t want to take huge doses of anything that will start pulling mercury out of the filling. The sodium alginate is gentle with no side effects. As far as physical symptoms that might be tied into the mercury, they are improving gradually. (Chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, adrenal fatigue.)
High quality alginate, good price.
The price of Alginates seems to have gone up, so make sure to comparison shop. I trust WillPowder for all my gastronomic chemicals. Good brand, good containers, good chemicals. Recommended.
