A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I took Advanced Detox Formula to lower the heavy metal levels in my body. That mention spurred a lot of email asking why I took this product instead of PectaSol Detox Formula. Jeannette V. said: "I have a high amount of mercury, lead, and cadmium in my body. Therefore, I bought three bottles of PectaSol, which I have not used yet. The Advanced Detox Formula sounds literally more "Advanced" and now I wonder if I could exchange my three bottles for the better (?) formula. Please advise and thanks!"
Thanks for the note Jeannette. Advanced Bionutritionals has a money-back guarantee on all its products, so you can make the exchange if you want to. But you may not need to. Let's look at both products and then you can decide which one you should use for your situation.
PectaSol Detox Formula has a lot of studies on its ability to remove various toxins from your body. These studies show just how effective it can be. I really like the formula's proven ability to remove pesticides and other toxins like parabens (in cosmetics and prescription drugs) and bisphenol A (in plastic). Does it remove metals? The studies say yes, though we don't know if it removes them as fast as Advanced Detox Formula.
One critical question you have to ask about any detox formula is whether or not it removes essential minerals or not. Remember, copper and other essential minerals are metals. So you don't want to remove these. The studies suggest that PectaSol Detox Formula does not remove these. That's good.

As for Advanced Detox Formula, we know that it removes heavy metals. We don't know if it removes essential minerals. So the recommendation is to take it for three to nine months until your metals tests show your levels have come down adequately. That's what I did.
Does Advanced Detox Formula remove pesticides and other toxins? We don't know. We don't have studies proving this. Theoretically, the process that removes metals would work to remove them. But we don't have evidence yet.
So here's what I do. I use Advanced Detox Formula to remove heavy metals. I'll run a three-month course once a year if necessary. For pesticides and other toxins, I use PectaSol Detox Formula. As you may know, my father has Parkinson's disease. There is a strong connection between pesticides and other toxins and Parkinson's. Since this disease can run in families, this is a major concern for me. Because we know it doesn't remove essential minerals, you can take it on-going.
I use PectaSol Detox Formula as a preventive on heavy metals and to remove other toxins. And I use Advanced Detox Formula as a powerful way to remove heavy metals when they're high. You don't need to take both at the same time.
If you have experience with either of these products, I'd love to hear from your story. Please hit reply and tell me about it.
