Thorne Research’s Captomer is a powerful nutritional supplement that delivers an essential boost of DMSA.
Meso-2, 3-dimercaptosuccinic acid, or DMSA, is effective in removing toxic heavy metals from the body. DMSA has proven
especially useful in the removal of mercury and lead, two of the most common and potentially toxic metals. In clinical studies, this pair of heavy metals has been proven to interfere with the nerve communication process.
It should be
pointed out that metals play a crucial role in human biological functioning; in fact, small amounts of metals like manganese and iron are essential to life. However, extensive research has shown that, when present in the body at elevated
concentrations, these very same metals can become toxic and threaten your health. Furthermore, some of these potentially toxic metals, such as lead, don’t occur naturally in the body; instead, such metals are typically present due to
exposure from work-related activities or some sort of contact with environmental pollution. Both types of exposure tend to be prolonged and can contribute to major illnesses.
Lead is one of the most conspicuous metals that doctors test
for. The reason is simple: lead is a common element in many things around us, including paint, toys, jewelry, and canned foods. Although lead has been banned from gasoline and most other products for decades, older items may still contain
it. Mercury, another disease-causing metal, is recognized as second only to uranium as the most toxic of all substances. Exposure to mercury can occur by eating some types of fish, in utero when a mother is pregnant, certain
vaccinations, dental work, and the past use of certain forms of contraception and contact lenses that previously contained mercury.
Meso-2, 3-Dimercaptosuccinic Acid—such as that provided by Captomer vegetarian capsules
—was FDA approved in the ‘60’s for the chelation or removal of dangerous heavy metals like lead and mercury from the body. It’s available without a prescription and works quickly.

I like Thorne products - they seem to use less fillers than other companies. For sensitive people this is very good!
