EDTA is an odorless crystalline powder with a slightly salty flavor. It binds to the excessive metal in your blood, which is then excreted through urine. 

BENEFITS OF edta

  • helps manage cardiovascular conditions

  • removes excessive metal in your blood

  • minimize calcium build up

Ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA) refers to a chelating agent that is used to sequester metal ions.  It binds to metals via four carboxylates and two amine groups. EDTA is a colorless and water-soluble solid.  

The two most common forms of EDTA compounds are calcium disodium EDTA (Versinate), and  disodium EDTA (Endrate).  However, the two are used for different purposes. 

Calcium disodium EDTA was approved by the FDA for the management of lead poisoning and has been the mainstay drug in the management of pediatric lead poisoning from the 1950s.  

Disodium EDTA is used in the management of cardiovascular conditions.  Its mechanism is leeching calcium out of the plaques, which cause a reduction in the size of the plaques and also reduces the risk of stenosis.  It is also used in the management of individuals with rhythm disorders that are secondary to drug intoxication.
