Mega-Chel is an oral chelation formula. Generally speaking, chelation is an approach to feed minerals into the circulatory system to displace plaque and heavy metals that may be restricting free blood flow.
At first glance, the ingredients of this product seem to resemble a multi-vitamin; and, in actuality, some people that have taken Mega-Chel for a while have continued taking it as a multi-vitamin. Where it differs from the typical multi-vitamin is that is has higher dosages of minerals--magnesium, calcium, zinc, manganese, selenium, iron, iodine, phosphorus, chromium, potassium, and more. While many multi-vitamins contain these ingredients, the higher dosages of these minerals is a little more unique. Since minerals tend to displace other substances, there may be some benefit to prolonged use. Also in Mega-Chel, there are various herbs and other substances known to help blood flow, such as the antioxidant CoQ10 and hawthorn berries.
In a typical program, Mega-Chel is taken with another mineral supplement such as Ionic Minerals or Trace Mineral Maintenance to maximize its effect. It is extremely important that there be a "ramp up" to full dosage since starting with full dosage can cause headaches, dizziness, and other symptoms as the body unloads the offending substances from the arteries. After ramping up, full dosage can be taken for several months, then there should be a gradual tapering off. The "tapering off" period gives your body the chance to start learn how to extract its own minerals from food again.
It is quite common for cholesterol levels in the blood to rise as plaque is removed. However, the condition should only be temporary. It may be necessary to give the liver and/or kidneys some special support during this time since these organs will be responsible for ejecting the toxins released during chelation. If there is a history of weak kidneys, Chinese KB-C may be appropriate. For the liver, consider Chinese Liver Balance.
