Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie

We are all exposed to toxic heavy metals today. Many people also come into this world with toxic heavy metals such as mercury they inherited through their family line. Toxic heavy metals can cause or contribute to countless health symptoms and conditions.

Enjoy this delicious smoothie daily to help safely and effectively remove heavy metals out of your brain and body.

2 cups of frozen wild blueberries
1 cup cilantro
1 tsp spirulina  (BEST IS FROM HAWAII)
1 tsp barley grass juice powder
1 tbsp Atlantic dulse
2 bananas
1 orange
1 cup water (optional)

Combine the bananas, blueberries, cilantro, barley grass juice powder, spirulina, and dulse with the juice of one orange in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Add up to 1 cup of water if a thinner consistency is desired. Serve and enjoy!

Wild blueberries: Draw heavy metals out of your brain tissue, healing and repairing any gaps created by oxidation when the heavy metals are removed. The potent antioxidants in wild blueberries help reverse any oxidative damage left behind by the heavy metal removal.

Barley grass juice extract powder: Has the ability to draw heavy metals out of your spleen, intestinal tract, pancreas, thyroid, and reproductive system. Barley grass juice extract prepares mercury for complete absorption by spirulina.

Spirulina: Draws out heavy metals from your brain, central nervous system, and liver, and soaks up heavy metals extracted by barley grass juice extract powder.

Cilantro: Goes deep into hard-to-reach places, extracting metals from yesteryear.

Atlantic dulse: Binds to mercury, lead, aluminum, copper, cadmium, and nickel. Atlantic dulse goes into deep, hidden places of the digestive tract and gut, seeking out mercury, binding to it, and never releasing it until it leaves the body. Atlantic dulse also serves as emergency backup, helping ensure that all the heavy metals that make it as far as the colon actually leave the body.

Reasons to Eat Your Fruits, Not Drink Them


Getting a little—or a lot—more fruits and vegetables into your diet is always a good thing (1).


But when it comes to slamming them back in a tasty smoothie, are you getting all the benefits you could?


Fruits and vegetables are packed with micronutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that help your body function better.


These nutrients can help prevent disease, contribute to fat loss, protect your heart, and keep you feeling and looking young.


And if a smoothie is going to help you get more of these nutrients and boost your fruit and veggie intake, then it would be silly for me to tell you to put them down, right? Well… maybe not.


Whole Foods Provide Longer Feelings of Fullness

Fruits and veggies might not be best suited as beverages. One of the biggest reasons whole fruits and vegetables are superior is because of what happens to the fiber when they’re liquefied—the structure is altered and these foods may not provide the same health benefits as when consumed whole. The insoluble fiber is reduced, and that fiber is key to how sugars are absorbed; that is, you end up absorbing them much faster, causing a metabolic response similar to drinking a fruit juice or soda, which may eventually lead to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. There is research indicating that people who eat more whole fruits, as opposed to drinking them as fruit juices, are less likely to get type 2 diabetes.


Whole foods also provide longer feelings of fullness than smoothies or fruit juices, because your body takes a longer time to break down the nutrients. This is largely due to the presence of fiber along with the fact that it simply takes longer to eat food than drink it.


Smoothies can also help calories creep up quickly, depending on what you put in them. Using almond milk, nut butters, flaxseeds, and other ingredients can add quick, unnoticed calories. Not that that’s a problem in and of itself—but if it’s not keeping you full for very long you’re likely to find yourself eating something shortly after. Those extra calories can add up quickly if you’re not paying attention.


Getting enough servings of fruits and vegetables every day has a number of health benefits, and if you can get up to eight per day if you’re in great shape. If a smoothie every day helps you add a serving or two, that’s great, but it probably shouldn’t be your sole source of fruit/veggie intake.
