How Cilantro Helps Remove Heavy Metals
Our environment is full of toxins—the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat are all laced with industrial pollutants. Included in these toxins include heavy metals, which cause many serious health problems including cancer, heart disease, brain deterioration (like Alzheimer’s disease), emotional problems, kidney disease, lung disease, and frail bones. Most of our bodies are inundated with heavy metals and we don’t even know it! Fortunately there is a natural and efficient way to detoxify our bodies and remove the hazardous heavy metals. The answer…cilantro!
Scientists speculate that cilantro’s detoxifying properties have to do with the structure of the plant’s outer walls, which are comprised of microscopic cells that are ideal for absorption of heavy metals. These cells bind to the toxic metals and help loosen them from body tissue. The next time you are making your own salsa or guacamole, go heavy on the cilantro!
