🔝Learn here how to remove heavy metals from the body 🚮
The atmosphere accumulates toxic particles from industry, the combustion of vehicles, aerosols ... These particles can enter directly into our bodies when breathing or in contact with the dermis. In addition, rain falls on the ground, water and the products we grow, thus passing through these contaminated lands to the food chain. To this we must add the herbicides and pesticides used in agriculture, or the contamination - mainly by mercury - of the sea, concentrated mainly in fish and seafood of large tafia (tuna, swordfish, shark ...).

Other sources of contamination by toxic metals are tobacco, medicines, kitchen utensils or personal hygiene and cosmetic products (creams, sunscreens, deodorants ...).
It is extremely difficult for our bodies to eliminate these heavy metals and they accumulate day after day as we expose ourselves to them.
Different studies conclude that this intoxication is behind diseases that can affect the liver, kidney or respiratory tract. It can lead to thyroid problems, neurological disorders or learning problems, among others.
How can we defend ourselves against heavy metals?
The main mechanism of elimination of heavy metals is chelation. The administration of substances capable of binding or complexing to heavy metals results in the production of less toxic compounds that are easier to remove. Nature can be an important source of molecules with this activity that can be reinforced with the administration of antioxidant substances.
Cilantro Conandrum sativum
Cilantro has a powerful antioxidant and chelating action especially for mercury, lead and aluminum. It also contains a large amount of vitamins, especially A and K.
Chlorophyll is the green pigment that allows plants to perform photosynthesis. The scientific literature describes detoxifying and anticancer properties for this molecule but in this case it is especially interesting for its chelating capacity of heavy metals.
Clorela Chlorella pyrenoidosa:
It is a spherical unicellular freshwater green algae. It is very rich in chlorophyll (greater-equal to spirulina, spinach or nettles). It is known to be a very interesting superfood for its nutritional properties but has also been studied for the ability to increase fecal and urinary excretion of cadmium.
Although it is true that selenium is considered a heavy metal for which toxic effects have been described at high doses (higher intakes of more than 400 Itg), it is also a necessary trace element for life. The recommended daily intake is 55.tg for women and 70 in for men, since among other functions is part of the enzymes that perform an important antioxidant function. Due to its high affinity for mercury, it can antagonize its toxic effects, preventing it from depositing in the tissues.
Change your habits to limit exposure to heavy metals:
Consume fruits, vegetables and cereals from organic farming.
Avoid physical exercise in places with heavy traffic.
Opt for bio creams and cosmetics, natural hair dyes and avoid deodorants containing aluminum.
Protect yourself when using cleaning products and paints.
Avoid dental amalgams (silver fillings) because they contain mercury.
Diet can also help you cleanse your body:
Helps to stimulate the depurative process of the body and, therefore, to eliminate toxins. It opts, preferably, for steam cooking to maintain its properties.
It is a powerful antioxidant. It is also a natural antibiotic and will also help us increase our defenses.
Along with other fruits such as pears and grapefruits, has high levels of pectin, a natural chelator that can contribute to eliminated heavy metals from the body.
Helps the immune system to act on the elimination of toxins.
