Are there any supplements that can prevent the uptake of mercury (or other metals like Pb, Al, Cd, As, etc) in the digestive system?

 

Chelators such as EDTA, DMSA, and DMPS are used to chelate metals out of body tissues. But they do their work by first entering into circulation. Are there any compounds that specifically do not get absorbed into circulation and instead hold onto metals in the digestive tract so that they pass through without causing harm?

Maybe low dose activated charcoal combined with zinc carnosine but I think it prevents absorption of everything including good nutrients so it will probably backfire but maybe it is good taken when you eat certain food with a lot of mercury and then take supplement 8 hours later just to make sure so that you get your vitamins etc or before so it's not affected.. Also a lot of them are airborne you inhale them and are absorbed trough the skin slowly and no way to avoid that. So best is just to keep your health up to date.

Actually Joe Cohen (selfhacked.com) talked in a recent advertisement letter about him being very sensitive and experiencing brain-fog after any seafood. Alledgedly eating it with high-dose activated charcoal (~2g) helps him.

Cheap enough to try.

Cup of tea inhibits uptake of mercury from fish
https://www.ergo-log...teamercury.html

"Fish is healthy, but then again it's not. Fish is a source of omega-3 fatty acids, selenium and taurine. All healthy. But because of the cavalier way we treat the planet, fish is also source of mercury and other heavy metals. Not so healthy. So should you eat fish or not? Researchers at Purdue University have come up with a good solution: eat fish and drink a cup of tea with it. This way your body won't absorb the mercury from the fish.

Mercury
Even small quantities of mercury are bad for the heart and blood vessels. Fish itself is good for the heart because it contains taurine-rich protein and omega-3 fatty acids. But some studies have shown that because of mercury contamination fish does not always have positive effects on the cardiovascular system. [N Engl J Med. 2002 Nov 28;347(22):1747-54.]

Study
The researchers wanted to know if this situation could be remedied by eating fish in combination with plant fibres or polyphenols. It is known that these inhibit the body's absorption of heavy metals such as cadmium. In Food Chemistry the researchers describe experiments they did in which they digested polluted mackerel – 1ppm mercury – in an artificial digestive system, complete with all the enzymes and juices that are found in the human digestive system. Then they measured how much of the mercury was converted into a form that the gut cells could absorb.

Results
The results produced the figure below, which tells us that soya protein inhibits the conversion of mercury into an absorbable form. The line shows the amount of mercury, the bars show the amount of absorbable mercury."

Make your own food is also something if you are rich enough to have a lot of land and have your own lakes etc for fish. I hunt my food and live on an island half my time.
