How to support your body’s ability to remove toxic metals

How cilantro helps support your body's ability to remove toxic metals on Winning Alopecia

Cilantro (the leaves and stems of the coriander plant) is widely known to aid in heavy metals detoxification from our body. Clearing toxic metals from your body is so very important to resolve autoimmune conditions.

I’d say that we’re all exposed to heavy metals – from our food (from the soil they are grown in), environmental pollutants, water, household products, seafood (wild caught AND farmed – because wild waters are heavily polluted too), some dental fillings, some pharma 💉s, and so on.

We can take steps to try and reduce our exposure, but let’s face it, we have very little control over most of these and it is not possible to avoid exposures altogether. The more important thing then, is to support our body’s own ability to rid itself of these toxic metals.

To do that, I include fresh cilantro leaves in our green smoothies DAILY (green smoothies made of dark leafy green vegetables such as kale, spinach, chards and other dark green leafies). Not dried cilantro or cilantro oil, but fresh cilantro leaves.

Cilantro has properties that enables the chelation of heavy metals, and the effectiveness seems to be really boosted when it is consumed along with chlorella (green algae) – pay attention to the source though because a lot of algae products are also contaminated with heavy metals (more on that another time).

Along with the high amounts of fiber and other yummy phytonutrients and antioxidants in these leafy greens, waste products and toxic heavy metals are moved out of our body through the bowels (yeap – big, big 💩). Make sure to drink lots of water in the process – very important to ensure that things can move along.
