IP6, - commonly known simply as IP6 (inositol hexaphosphate), also called phytic acid is a rice bran extract that removes excess iron & other metallic minerals from the body. IP6 Inositol is unique as it will only remove excess iron & not iron from within your blood cells as this is protected by hemoglobin. IP6 will also remove excess calcium & other metallic minerals that our bodies have accumulated down through the years. Many will avoid iron rich foods although this is not thought to be safe. Some will use various detox methods & chelation therapy to remove excess iron and minerals from the blood.

Why Is It Important to Remove Excess Iron?

Iron attacks & rusts your organs. As we age, we accumulate more iron than we need, adults accumulate in excess of 1mg of iron every day. We get this excess iron from our foods such as vegetables, meat etc etc. When we are younger we can use up this iron as our bodies are still growing however when we get older, is harder for us to rid our bodies of iron.

Are Your Iron Levels Too High?

This is not good, because excess iron in the body can cause all sorts of problems such as cancer & degenerative brain diseases. Women have a better chance of ridding their bodies of excess iron through menstruation; however men don't have this mechanism so this is the reason why scientists believe that women live on average five years longer than men.

The more iron you have in your body the more havoc it causes; it can also attack the heart & arteries. It does this by creating destructive free radicals which can cause premature aging of our vital organs. Most cancer cells have a higher iron content than normal cells with recent studies showing that leukaemia cells have far more iron than normal cells, some with up to 1000 times more iron.

hat is IP-6?
 
IP-6 (inositol hexaphosphate) is a component of certain dietary fibers, particularly most cereal grains, legumes, and seeds high in oil. Many researchers believe some of fiber's health benefits may be due to the antioxidant, immune-enhancing, and cardiovascular-supporting activities of IP-6.
 
IP-6 is one form of inositol. Inositol is a kind of sugar formed by 6 carbon atoms, 6 oxygen atoms, and 12 hydrogen atoms. This combination of atoms can also form glucose, but the atoms are arranged differently in these 2 sugars. There are actually several forms of inositol, each with subtle differences in the arrangement of atoms, with myo-inositol being the most common form. IP-6 is formed by substituting phosphate groups (each with a phosphorous and three oxygens) for each of the 6 hydroxyl (an oxygen and hydrogen) groups of inositol. Thus, IP-6 is related, yet chemically distinct, from myo-inositol, which is being studied for its possible role in illnesses such as depression and anxiety.
 
What does IP-6 do?
 
In-vitro and animal research has shown IP-6 to have significant protective and growth-regulating effects on various cells and tissues including those of the colon, breast, and prostate. Proponents call IP-6 a "natural cancer fighter" and claim it slows or reverses the growth of various forms of cancer, including breast, colon, and prostate cancers. It is thought to be an antioxidant, a compound that blocks the action of free radicals, activated oxygen molecules that can damage cells. It may help to prevent the abnormal signals that tell a cancer cell to keep growing from reaching the cell's nucleus. Some research shows IP-6 slows abnormal cell division and may sometimes transform tumor cells into normal cells. Supporters also claim it effectively prevents kidney stones, high cholesterol, heart disease, and liver disease.
 
IP-6 is converted into compounds in the body that are used by cells to relay outside messages to the cell nucleus. IP-6 also aids the body in its use, or metabolism, of calcium and other minerals

Description

  • Dietary Supplement
  • Inositol Hexaphosphate
  • Supports breast, colon & prostate cells

IP-6 (inositol hexaphosphate) is a component of certain dietary fibers, particularly most cereal grains, legumes and seeds high in oil. Many researchers believe that some of fiber's health benefits may be due to the antioxidant, immune enhancing and cardiovascular supporting activities of IP-6. In-vitro and animal research has shown IP-6 to have significant protective and growth regulating effects on various cells and tissues including those of the colon, breast and prostate. Three tablets of  IP-6 contains 2400 mg of IP-6, free of other active ingredients. Only IP-6 in this form has consistently demonstrated positive research results.

Suggested Use
