Heavy Metal Urine Analysis in 20 Healthy Persons Taking Mineralox
Heavy Metal Urine Analysis in 20 Healthy Persons Taking Mineralox
Researchers want to find out if urine heavy metal levels are changed in persons who use Mineralox Basic C™ (Mineralox). Mineralox is a zeolite (clinoptilolite) in combination with Vitamin C. Zeolites are natural supplements (nutraceuticals) that work at the cellular level to remove heavy metals and toxins that are accumulated in every day life safely from the body through the urine. The study doctor will give Mineralox to 20 people in this study to see if it helps with the heavy metal removal from the body.
