IMD (distributed by MHP)
6 gram powder (3 month supply)
Quicksilver Scientific has developed a sophisticated detoxification system
based on enhancing the natural removal of metals through the intestines using a proprietary compound, IMD (Intestinal Metals
The Intestinal Metals Detox (IMD) is a proprietary product that consists of highly purified silica carrier
attached metal-binding groups. The product is insoluble and functions to bind heavy metals in the gut
so that they can be
safely eliminated with the bowels; this prevents both absorption of the heavy metals and the generation
catalyzed by the metals. In fact, the product can also directly neutralized free-radicals in the gut
and thus may play a role
in damping gastrointestinal inflammation. Both the silica base and the binding agent are GRAS
(generally recognized as
safe) for use in food, but since the binding agent is firmly attached to the insoluble silica,
it is not absorbed and thus not
bioavailable. The product contains no known allergens and no allergic reactions have
been reported to date.
Binds mercury and other
heavy metals in the intestines and escorts these harmful contaminants out of the body.
Intercepts methylmercury trapped in enterohepatic circulation.
Leads to lowering of blood mercury levels, allowing organ and tissue bound
mercury safely to drain into the blood at a natural rate
Improves the body’s natural detoxification ability by quenching free radicals and stopping metal-catalyzed
free-radical reactions, which can otherwise lead to inflammation and cause down-regulation of detox transporters (Phase III
transporters—OATs, cMOAT, MRPs, etc)
the link between the intestines and the immune system.
1 scoop mixed in water or juice daily on an empty stomach, take 5 days on
and 2 days off in a rotation. Can be taken first thing in the morning or right before bed. Take away from minerals, Glutathione,
and Clear Way Cofactors.
For advanced use take 1 scoop, 2-3 times daily. For sensitive patients, start with half a scoop per day, and work
up to the full dosage. Children 12 and under: 1/2 scoops, or as tolerated.
Caution: not to be used by infants, pregnant or nursing women.
Administration: Mix one scoop of IMD in water or juice, and drink quickly to avoid the settling of particles.
Dosage: Regimen: For a
long-term cleans take 5 days on/ 2 days off in a rotation. For acute problems, take continuously until symptoms subside.
Length of Treatment: The general course of use is 4-6 months
as a basic cleanse, up to a year for deeper cleansing. Periodic use after the main cleanse (one month two times per year)
is helpful for two reasons: 1) To remove new accumulations, and 2) Deeper deposits may not be accessible during the first
cleanse and can move out and become more available after the body adjusts to the first cleanse.
The speed/intensity of the cleanse can be controlled by the dosage. Most people experience a need for more sleep
at night, but if pronounced fatigue is experienced during the day, the dosage can be decreased until comfortable. No major
side effects have been reported. Minor side effects include: fatigue and mild headaches. These reactions are common during
any type of cleansing. During this cleanse it is important to increase water intake and make sure that you are having
at least 1-2 bowel movements a day.
formula: Base of highly purified silica with covalently bonded elements. Does not contain any known allergens or fillers.
Comes with a pre-measured scoop for easy use.
