DMSA (Dimercaptosuccinic acid also called ‘succimer’ or ‘succinic acid’) is used to remove toxic heavy metals. It is particularly effective at removing lead and mercury. If you have lead poisoning symptoms or arsenic poisoning symptoms DMSA can help you. It is safe and works very quickly.
Dimercaptosuccinic acid is indicated for the treatment of lead poisoning in children with blood level measured above 45 µg/dl.
DMSA facilitates urinary excretion of lead, and with sufficiently aggressive treatment, can reduce lead content in the brain. It also increases urinary excretion of copper and zinc.
DMSA improved cognitive function in rats that had been exposed to lead, but reduced cognitive function in rats that had not been exposed to lead.
DMSA is able to effectively chelate lead from the human body. Lead is particularly toxic to children, leading to Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Hyperactive Disorders. Their growing nervous system is negatively impacted by chronic and acute lead exposure.
