Iron Toxicity Post #49: IP-6 offers a compelling solution to iron overload

IP-6 offers a compelling solution to iron overload.

We’ve covered a lot of ground this year as we’ve exposed the truth about the downside to excess, unbound Iron. I never imagined that I would spend this entire year (and likely the rest of my life) being consumed by this iron topic. We just never know what life has in store for us, now do we?

I am often asked, both on MAG, and consults, as to what can be done to lower the levels of iron in one’s blood. The most obvious action is to donate blood. Only 5% of folks regularly engage in this practice, but that small percentage of society outlives the other 95% in every study done to assess factors influencing longevity.

A close second to this phlebotomy practice is to discipline your supplement routine to take IP-6 (Inositol 6-Phosphate) or otherwise known as stabilized rice bran. The 6 phosphate groups (PO3), shown in the picture below, can hold an atom of iron which is a good thing in a body that is stressing over too much unbound iron.

I am sharing important information about this topic to two authors that I respect and both of who have compiled compelling blogs on this vital topic:

Bill Sardi on the “Overlooked Cancer Cure”:

Joe Cohen on “16 Benefits of Phytic Acid

Between these two blogs, I’m confident that you’re getting a very complete overview, as well as drill-down, about the properties, the importance, as well as the impact that this anti-nutrient provides. Especially so, when it is taken away from food.

Here is a bit more scientific proof beyond what was provided in the those two blogs, please go below for additional research and analytical insights:

Weglarz, L., et al. (2008). “Effect of Inositol Hexaphosphate on Lipopolysaccharide-Stimulated Release of TNF-α from Human Mononuclear Cells”

“It is thought that anti-carcinogenic benefits of IP6 may in part be attributable to its antioxidant capability through its iron chelating properties.”

Human mononuclear cell

Sandberg, A., et al. (1999). “Inositol phosphates with different numbers of phosphate groups influence iron absorption in humans”

“Inositol hexaphosphate (IP6) is a well-known inhibitor of iron absorption…”

Anekonda, T.S., et al. (2011). “Phytic acid as a potential treatment for Alzheimer’s pathology: evidence from animal and in vitro models”

I believe when the push comes to shove, this nutrient is a powerhouse that will change your cellular chemistry. I do hope you find this information helpful and healthful.

A votre sante!
