FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions
How Are We Exposed to Toxins?
We are exposed to toxins from a wide array of sources including fish and seafood, cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes from vehicles, dental fillings, flu vaccines, jet fuel (especially if you live near a major airport), manufacturing plants, pesticides, crop dusting, fertilizers, fungicides, motor oil and more.
What is the Difference Between Other Heavy Metal Removal Methods (such as EDTA) and PectaClear®?
Many heavy metal removal protocols need to be done under medical supervision, are invasive, time consuming and require the patient to return for frequent visits. These treatments also strip the body of essential minerals and nutrients; therefore, the patient also has to take replacement supplements. PectaClear® is easy, convenient, economical and does not remove any essential minerals or nutrients.*
Is PectaClear® Safe for Children?
Yes, many health care providers are now utilizing PectaClear® for children exposed to toxic heavy metals.*
Does PectaClear® Contain Iodine?
One of the key ingredients in PectaClear® is Alginate, which is a viscous gum (glutinous in nature, thick, sticky) derived from the cell wall of brown algae (seaweed). It is modified and purified, and contains no Iodine.
What Kind of Alginate is used in PectaClear®?
The alginate used is from the laminaria species.
Are there any Contraindications or Cautions for PectaClear®?
PectaClear has no known adverse effects or toxicity with long-term use. Because dietary fibers have the potential to bind and may affect absorption, it is recommended that this formula be taken at least 30 minutes away from the intake of drugs or supplements. No mineral deficiencies have been observed clinically but, as with all detoxification, a multivitamin/mineral supplement is recommended to provide extra nutritional support. If you are nursing, pregnant, or considering pregnancy, you should consult your health care practitioner prior to using this product.*
