I posted the following in another reply, but I thought I would repeat it here... I am just wondering and of course I don't know the answer is whether one could chelate the iron out of the arteries. Iron is also high in Parkinson's and they have been trying to develop iron chelators for years for Parkinson's that they could use without harm but I gather it is tricky to chelate iron out of the brain. There are two different drugs available. But I find the IP6 an interesting product and I am going to try it soon as I get in the mail. One of my concerns with Zamboni's approach, not that there is anything wrong with it LOL, is that if we have a new form or an unidentified form of hemochromatosis, then iron will have collected in organs like the thyroid, the liver, the heart, the pancreas... and in order to get rid of for symptoms it might be useful to get iron out of their organs beside the brain. Just my musings...
One of the main health writers on IP6 is Bill Sardi, and he says that it has gotten the wrong reputation as an anti-nutrient. He wrote a book called The Iron Timebomb. But he touts the ability of phytic acid to chelate iron without affecting nutrient profile.

I have ordered this stuff but I am waiting for it to arrive. I live in Canada and I order a lot of my stuff from iHERB..com. So I cannot attest to it just yet, but I am very much looking forward to trying it.

One in six Irish people carry a gene for hemochromatosis... my is of Irish/Scot and I have never had a Dr. asked me if I should be or wanted to be tested for iron overload. If you ever you Dr. 's website, look up Parkinson's and iron because that condition also has high iron in the brain. Dr. Mercola if he has any credence recommends IP6 to chelate iron, says it is effective. That is one of my questions about the iron depositions in the veins and brain, as to whether one can chelate out the iron. They use IP6 very heavily in the autism community, because some of those kids are iron toxic.
