(NaturalNews) The more you read NaturalNews and other health sites that are truthful, real, and don't pull punches, the more you're probably realizing that we are all under siege with toxins -- especially heavy metals -- in our air, water, and food.
Heavy or toxic metals, such as cadmium, lead, mercury, and aluminum degenerate the body's immune system, leading to poor health and disease. If you have dental amalgams (mercury fillings) for example, you are inadvertently releasing mercury vapors into your body.
According to a Japanese study, cancer cells all contain mercury. Removing mercury fillings is tricky and dangerous, unless you can find and afford a holistic or biological dentist.
Regardless of what we do to minimize toxins and pollutants in our food, water, domiciles, cosmetics and household cleaners, there are endless amounts of environmental toxins to battle on a daily basis; this doesn't include the residual toxic buildups in our bodies from earlier in our lives.
So what thenshouldwe do? Detoxify heavy metals continually, daily. Here's one relatively inexpensive, effective method that's quite simple to do on a daily basis -- consuming chlorella and cilantro as often as possible.
Chlorella: superfood and detox combo
Chlorella's detox abilities have been tested in several nations, including Russia.A test of 350 foundry workers in Russia demonstrated that chlorella not only removed specific metals involved with foundry work: it removed all heavy metals.
Chlorella is an algae comprised of single cells no larger than 10 microns. It is easily cultivated in fresh water ponds exposed to sunlight, but the cell walls are so tough thattheir nutrients and detox abilities are hardly bioavailable.
That's where the processing comes in, butnot with heat, chemicals or other additives; the processing necessary involves breaking the cell walls with a special milling process or rapid pressure change method.
Amazingly, chlorella cells are able to bind with heavy metal molecules and usher them out of the body. They actually differentiate between toxic heavy metals and other toxins while leaving mineral nutrients alone.
In addition to its detox abilities, chlorella is one of nature's best super foods. It contains all the amino acids, providing easy-to-digest protein. It also contains vital minerals such as magnesium and iron. The high level of chlorophyll in chlorellahelps optimize oxygen into blood intake.
Raw, organic cilantro ischeap and easy to add into juice or make into pesto to give you an extra mercury elimination boost. When mercury was found in patients' urine in an Indonesian clinic, soup with cilantro was discovered to help eliminate theheavy metal.
Since toxins tend to get stored in fats, it's a good idea to work on losing body fat as well. But normally, a heavy intake of chlorella can help break up the toxins locked intofats. It's hard to go wrong with chlorella and cilantroas mercury detox superfoods.
