Don't let heavy metals weigh you down; you can detox with some of the world's greatest superfoods

Heavy metals

(NaturalNews) In our modern life we ingest, absorb and inhale all sorts of chemicals and heavy metals on a daily basis, and often without even realizing it, which is why many of us have recurring problems with our health.

As noted by Organic Lifestyle Magazine, all kinds of bad bacteria and Candida produce massive amounts of toxins as part of their metabolism, and as they die off. Besides doing detoxes twice a year to help cleanse your body of these highly toxic substances, what about every other day of the year when we are actually accumulating these toxins?

The magazine recommends five superfoods that you should consider when detoxing:

-- Chlorella

-- Spirulina

-- Garlic

-- Cilantro

-- Wheatgrass

Chlorella and spirulina

Chlorella is a round, single-cell organism containing a wealth of chlorophyll that is packed with 20 vitamins and minerals, as well as all of the essential amino acids.

Spirulina, meanwhile, is a "spiral, multi-cell organism that is also rich in chlorophyll, and it contains 18 vitamins and minerals, 8 amino acids, and omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids," the magazine noted.

Both superfoods are very high in protein and antioxidants, and both do an exceptional job of absorbing heavy metals and other toxic substances. In fact, they're so good at absorbing heavy metals that you need to make sure you purchase these products from a trusted, reliable source, to make sure you don't buy something that has absorbed heavy metals from the environment and is clean (like ours is).


Another wonderful superfood, garlic contains lots of vitamin C, B6 and manganese. Its active ingredient, a sulfur compound known as allicin, is what gives garlic its remarkable healing properties. Garlic is useful in helping to reduce the severity of viruses that cause the common cold and flu, helps to keep blood pressure normalized, lowers LDL cholesterol and serves as a cleansing antioxidant.

In addition to those qualities, garlic also acts as an effective antimicrobial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic. And it also binds heavy metals which helps to detox the body.

Many recommend eating three or more cloves per day; always wait about 10 minutes or so after crushing garlic before cooking it, or eat it raw, to allow the allicin to form.


Besides binding heavy metals, cilantro also pulls them from the blood and body tissues before eliminating them from the body altogether. Cilantro serves as a potent antioxidant that is known to help you sleep better, reduce anxiety and lower your blood sugar.

"What we call cilantro is actually coriander–the same plant from which we harvest coriander seeds," the magazine reported. "It is also known as Chinese parsley."

NaturalNews editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, has also reported on the tremendous health benefits of cilantro.

"Heavy metals are extremely toxic to human neurology. Mercury, lead and cadmium all contribute aggressively to the deterioration of neurological function. Fortunately, there's a simple, natural way to detox your body and remove these toxic substances from your tissues," Adams, food research scientist, head of CWC Labs and author of Food Forensics, reported.

"The solution is cilantro. It's that magical-tasting herb often used in Mexican food recipes," he wrote. "As it turns out, cilantro not only taste great, it also binds to heavy metals and helps remove them from your body."


Chock full of goodness, wheatgrass is stuffed with calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, B vitamins, potassium, vitamin A and vitamin C.

Wheatgrass is a potent detoxifying agent that neutralizes toxins in your body with enzymes, while cleansing the body of heavy metals and additional toxic substances that embed themselves in your tissues and organs. And, like spirulina and chlorella, wheatgrass is an excellent source of chlorophyll.
