Heavy Metal Detox Juice. What? And, no, I don’t mean like the music. Heavy metals, like mercury and lead, can accumulate in your system and cause all kinds of problems. You get them from the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the food you eat. You can’t avoid them. The problem is that they build up in your system and your body can have a hard time getting rid of them. Heavy metals have been implicated in hormonal imbalances, thyroid problems, neurological disturbances, learning problems, depression and food allergies.
Cilantro – it’s also called Chinese Parsley, and, when dried, coriander – is a powerful natural chelator. Studies have shown that if you consistently eat small amounts of cilantro, you can reduce the heavy metal load in your system. You can do this in any way you want. Cilantro can be used in a multitude of foods from soups and stews to guacamole or Coconut Chicken with Lime and Cilantro.
One of my ways is to add some cilantro to this Heavy Metal Detox Juice.
- romaine lettuce – 1 bunch
- celery – 4 stalks
- parsley – 1 cup
- cilantro – 1 cup
- apple – 1/2 (optional)
Wash your greens thoroughly.
Put them through the juicer.
If you find the juice too strong, add 1/2 an apple. That will take the edge off.
