N-Acetyl Cysteine
« on: July 14, 2017, 05:34:54 PM »
I posted this over on the other hippy site, also...I was doing some research about metal ion chelation therapy for Cobalt and Chromium and came across the article below where 2 patients with high blood levels of these metals were given large doses of N-Acetyl Cysteine which appeared to be very effective at safely lowering the metal ion levels in the blood.

This appears to be a relatively new therapy and as such there isn't a lot of material out least that I've found.  Just thought I'd share with everyone.
