The Benefits of EDTA Chelation for Your Heart

It’s no secret that your body needs calcium. After all, without enough calcium, you can end up exhausted and dizzy, with brittle bones, weak teeth, brain fog and muscle pain and spasms. That’s why it’s so important to get enough calcium on a daily basis.

Unfortunately, not all calcium ends up in the right place – such as your bones.

In fact, calcium can buildup in your arteries and small blood vessels, leading to plaques that block blood flow, raise your blood pressure and put a serious strain on your heart health.

That’s why doctors turn to chelation therapy when their patients’ heart and blood vessels need help.

It’s a natural way to support the body’s ability to clear out calcium plaques in the blood vessels and get your heart health back on track.

But it can also be inconvenient and expensive.

Fortunately, intravenous chelation isn’t the only option.

Oral chelation using a high quality EDTA supplement is not only easy, but effective and can be done at home.

That’s why in this article, we’re going to delve into how calcium plaques affect your heart health and what EDTA is and how it can help. We’ll even take a look at what to look for in an EDTA supplement that can make your chelation journey more effective for your heart.

Calcium Buildup and Your Heart Health

While calcium is vital to keeping your muscles, nerves and blood vessels functioning at their best, that’s not all there is to calcium’s story. 

Excess calcium can buildup in arteries resulting in:

  • Lowered blood flow to the heart

  • Reduced elasticity of the arteries

  • Higher pressures in the blood vessels of the heart

That’s why doctors use a test known as coronary artery calcium (CAC) scan to look for early signs of heart problems.

And that’s where the importance of chelation comes in.

What is EDTA Chelation?

Chelation means to “claw” in Greek.

So chelation therapy is used to grab onto calcium and even toxic metals in the bloodstream in order to allow the body to naturally flush them away.

It was developed in Germany in the early 1930s to remove heavy metals like aluminum, cadmium, mercury and lead, and it was approved by the FDA for the same purpose.

While chelation of excess calcium helps support vascular and heart health, its simultaneous action on toxic metals helps:

  • Promote healthy cognitive function

  • Supports mood and reduces stress

  • Helps maintain a strong immune system

  • Can improve energy and motivation

And while chelation used to be available only through intravenous therapy (IVs), oral EDTA chelating supplements now make it much more convenient and accessible.

In fact, ethylenediamine tetra-acetic acid or EDTA is a simple amino acid that can grab onto minerals, metals and other toxins in the bloodstream. It’s very similar in composition to common household vinegar, making it extremely natural.

In addition to working as a chelator, it also can be used to stabilize food and lock in freshness and flavor. And it’s so safe that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) have approved it for use in everything from canned vegetable to baby food.  

Which EDTA Supplement is Right for Me?

When choosing an EDTA supplement, the most important factor to look for is its bioavailability as that determines how much of it your body can use and therefore, its effectiveness.

Unfortunately, traditional EDTA supplements can be difficult for your body to absorb. Even liposomal products that promise an increased bioavailability can have difficulty penetrating tissues, maintaining stability and staying in a liquid state. 

Sadly, they’re also generally made using chemicals, solvents and/or non-organic ingredients. This makes them a hard pass when it comes to caring for your health.

That’s why it’s important to go with a Calcium Disodium EDTA supplement made using MicroSomal™ technology.

The reason MicroSomal™ Technology is the way to go is that it uses glycerosomes. These are unique vesicles made from organic raw cold-pressed unfiltered phospholipid blends, triple distilled biophotonic structured water and organic vegetable glycerin. 

They are especially effective in penetrating and absorbing through tissue and cells due to their nanometer size compared to standard liposomes. 

Glycerosomes are so effective in fact that MicroSomal™ Technology results in supplements that are 20% more effective and bioavailable than standard liposomal products on the market. 

This means that you can get more from your EDTA regimen on a daily basis.


While calcium is vital to your body’s health and wellness, it can present a real danger to your heart when plaques build up in your blood vessels. Luckily, EDTA can help, binding to calcium and toxic metals to support your body’s natural detoxification.

Taking a MicroSomal™ EDTA supplement daily is your body’s answer to heart and blood vessel health.
