A: Dear Doctor:
We now have a very comprehensive FAQ on ACZ nano: http://www.resultsrna.com/products/acz_nano_faq.php
ACZ nano and pregnancy:
Is ACZ nano® another form of oral chelation therapy?
The short answer is YES. Oral chelation therapy was originally developed to treat heavy metal poisoning especially lead. The term “chelate” refers to the ability of a compound to combine with a heavy metal so the toxin can be excreted by the kidneys and liver during detoxification. Traditional chelation treatment generally involves taking certain chemicals such as acid-based EDTA, DMSA, and DMPS that have an affinity for certain heavy metals. Many negative effects can occur during acid-based chelation therapy due to the weak binding of the agents to the heavy metals that would allow the heavy metals to be re-deposited elsewhere in the body or brain and not be excreted.
ACZ nano® however irreversibly binds toxic heavy metals and quickly removes them through the urinary tract. ACZ nano® is also able to correct pH by loosely attracting the large Hydrogen ion on the basis of concentration gradient. Acid-based chelating agents make pH worse. The only symptom associated with taking lots of the ACZ nano® is possible mild dehydration, which can be easily prevented by drinking plenty of fluids while using the supplement.
Whereas acid-based chelation treatments also bind to essential minerals as well as possibly increasing the likelihood that some heavy metals will be absorbed by the body during therapy, ACZ nano® does not have these same risks and does not have the same liver and kidney burden as acid-based chelation treatment. Pregnant and nursing women are encouraged to use ACZ nano® to help decrease toxins going through the placenta to the fetus and to detoxify the breast milk the infant requires.
Are there any side effects associated with taking ACZ nano®?
ACZ nano® is considered 100 percent safe and non-toxic by the FDA. There are no documented side effects associated with using ACZ nano® as a health supplement. Zeolite only remains in the body for between 5 and 7 hours, and it is considered safe for children, pregnant and nursing mothers, and the sick and elderly. It is recommended that anyone using ACZ nano® remain well-hydrated since the process of removing toxic heavy metal ions from the body can result in slight dehydration. The recommended eight to ten glasses of water per day should suffice in most cases. If you have any concerns, please speak to a health professional.
Is ACZ nano® safe for pregnant or nursing women?
The FDA considers zeolite safe and nontoxic, regardless of age or gender. Since it is also excreted in its entirety, zeolite will not accumulate in the body and should be considered safe for pregnant and nursing women. A recent Red Cross study found more than 200 toxic compounds, nearly half of them carcinogenic, in the umbilical cord blood of newborn babies. ACZ nano® may provide optimal health for mother and child.
