Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie

Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie

This smoothie not only delights your taste buds but is meticulously crafted with five essential ingredients that synergistically target and extract toxic heavy metals like mercury, lead, aluminium, nickel, copper, and cadmium from your organs, where they tend to accumulate.

Toxic heavy metals pervade our environment, lurking in everyday items we encounter, from aluminium cans and foil to batteries, metal cookware, old paint, and even the foods we consume. Pesticides and herbicides, which are challenging to fully evade even with a strict organic diet, are common sources of these harmful heavy metals. Consequently, most of us harbour these heavy metals, which have been with us for the majority of our lives, deeply ingrained in our tissues. Even at birth, heavy metals are already present in our livers. 

Over time, toxic heavy metals can oxidise, causing harm to nearby tissues and end up fuelling inflammation. The burden on our immune system caused by these metals leaves us susceptible to a range of illnesses.

Removing heavy metals from our organs is relatively uncomplicated by consuming the appropriate detoxing foods. Incorporating the following powerhouse foods into your daily diet and being diligent in your consumption can significantly aid in ridding your body of heavy metals:

1. Spirulina: This edible blue-green algae effectively draws heavy metals from your brain, central nervous system, and liver, working in tandem with barley grass juice extract powder to absorb the extracted metals. Consume 2 teaspoons mixed in water, coconut water, juice, or the smoothie recipe provided daily.

2. Barley Grass Juice Extract: This nutritive grass prepares the metals for full absorption by spirulina, extracting heavy metals from your spleen, intestinal tract, pancreas, thyroid, and reproductive system. Drink 1-2 teaspoons mixed in water, coconut water, juice, or the smoothie recipe provided daily.

3. Coriander: Penetrates hard-to-reach areas, extracting metals from past exposures, making it especially effective for addressing inherited mercury burdens. 

4. Wild Blueberries: Extract heavy metals from your brain tissue, facilitating healing and repair of any gaps created by oxidation during the removal of heavy metals. Opt for wild blueberries, as they possess unique phytonutrients with powerful detoxifying capabilities. The potent antioxidants in wild blueberries help reverse oxidative damage left behind by heavy metal removal, particularly vital for brain tissue. Aim for at least one cup daily. If  frozen wild blueberries are unavailable, wild blueberry powder and juice is a great alternative option. 

5. Atlantic Dulse: This edible seaweed not only binds to mercury but also to lead, aluminum, copper, cadmium, and nickel. Unlike other seaweeds, Atlantic dulse is a potent force for removing mercury. It delves into concealed areas of the digestive tract and gut, seeking out mercury and binding to it, ensuring its elimination from the body. Consume two tablespoons of flakes daily or an equivalent amount of strips if in whole-leaf form.   


With all that said, our bodies do an incredible job to encourage the natural detoxification process, however it is so important in this day and age to support it through mineral enrichment, eating organic foods, minimising exposure to heavy metals and nourishing our bodies with the support of detoxing.

We cannot emphasise just how wonderful adding a heavy metal detox smoothie to your morning is.
