Did you know that heavy metals in the body can lead to a variety of serious health issues, such as heart disease, lung disease, cancer, brain deterioration, weak bones, kidney disease, and even emotional problems?  A gentle and effective heavy metals and toxic contaminants de-toxifier can be achieved using the common herb, Cilantro, most commonly used in food preparation.

Benefits of cilantro

Cilantro is known to contain a wide range of minerals such as magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, and manganese.  It also contains very high amounts of Vitamins K and A.  It has already been proven as a natural remedy because of its anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties.  As it works to clear your system, it can be used to reduce inflammation and infection because of these healing properties.

An effective and inexpensive way to use Cilantro on a daily basis is to combine organic, fresh cilantro with your morning smoothie.  Simply adding chopped cilantro into your meals is another easy way to add it to your diet, and gain many health benefits.

A simple recipe to address any inflammation problems include:

  • 1/2 c water
  • 1/2 c organic apple juice
  • 1/2 c packed chopped fresh organic cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon moringa powder (or any other green super food)
  • Mix in a blender until smooth

Cilantro can also be found as an essential oil in most well-stocked health food stores these days.  The oil helps to eliminate heavy metals through the flushing process of urination.  Simply add a few drops of the cilantro essential oil to water or your favorite juice to speed up the elimination process.

Oddly though, for 4 – 14% of the population, cilantro can leave a soapy after-taste when digested as an herb in cooking.   Which is why some people say they actually hate using cilantro in cooking at all.  It turns out that how cilantro tastes can have a lot to do with your genes.  Recent scientific studies have determined that those who hate cilantro actually share a group of genes called olfactory-receptors, OR6A2, and these seem to absorb the smell of aldehyde chemicals.  Turns out that these particular chemicals are both found in cilantro and soap.  So just hope that you are not one of those unlucky folks who can’t take advantage of this powerful and common herb.
