Vitamin C for Heavy Metal Detox

In this video, you can see Russell Jaffe, MD, PhD discusses the ways in which ascorbic acid assists the body to eliminate and remove heavy metals like mercury, lead and cadmium.

Didn't watch the whole thing - one of the basic thing that he didn't mention is the pharmokinetics of Vitamin C. Dosed orally the maximum absorption and plasma value is reached with 400mg or so. So taking grams at the same time is not very productive and taking 500mg every half hour (plasma half life which he did mention) isnt very practical either (liposomal C may be different - don't know). There is another study that showed glutathione was maxed with 500mg dose and going to 1000mg dose didn't increase it further which is consistent with the oral pharmokinetic studies.

I have no idea whether C is a chelator or really just helping increase GSH and thus removing metals. His presentation wasn't very convincing.

I once read somewhere that Cilantro and Chlorella can help remove 60-80% of heavy metal from our body within 6-8 weeks!
