4 SUPERFOODS TO REMOVE TOXINS



Cilantro

The delicious culinary herb cilantro, happens to be one of the most effective and gentle detoxifiers of mercury, heavy metals and other toxic contaminants. You can buy cilantro juice at 
health food stores or simply include the fresh herb in your diet as pesto or seasoning to 
control the amount consumed and limit unwanted side effects. It’s inexpensive and works 
without the addition of man-made chemicals. Cilantro also possesses antibacterial and 
antifungal properties, quickly reducing infection and inflammation as it works to clear your 
system.

Chlorella

Chlorella is a single cell algae sea vegetable that grows in fresh water. Some of the best 
cholrella reserves have come from Japan; however, use caution when buying Japanese
 chlorella due to possible exposure to radiation from Fukushima. Chlorella is an 
easy-to-digest superfood best known for being able to remove mercury and other heavy 
metals from the cells. Too much chlorella can produce side effects — mostly in the digestive 
tract — where it works best to bind to mercury, eliminating it. Start with the lowest quantity and work up slowly for a gentle detox.

Wheatgrass

Juicing fresh produce and grasses such as wheat or barley grass provides an excellent way to remove toxins from the system. Wheatgrass is high in nutritional content, and provides
 vitamins, minerals and all nine essential amino acids. Wheatgrass can be a powerful detox, 
so start slowly with only a small amount of juice to keep it gentle — 1/2 ounce a day — 
and work up to avoid symptoms.

Using gentle detoxing products requires that you repeat treatments over a period of time 
until all symptoms have cleared. Side effects may include nausea, vomiting, muscle aches 
and pains, dizziness and fatigue. Additionally, detoxing can cause a flare-up in your condition temporarily. It’s just the toxins leaving your system and should pass shortly. If side effects 
are severe, reduce the quantity of whatever you’re using to detox. If the symptoms continue, stop and consult your natural health practitioner for further instructions.
