Cilantro is one of the most effective and gentle detoxifiers of heavy metals and other toxic contaminants, in the vegetable world? Since heavy metal overload has been linked to problems like cancer, heart disease, brain deterioration, emotional problems, kidney disease, lung disease, and weak bones, it’s important to extract as much mercury from your body’s organs as possible.
Rich in minerals like potassium, calcium, manganese, iron and magnesium, cilantro is also high in vitamins A and K. But there’s more- it’s also an antiseptic, antifungal and anti-inflammatory.
Blend a handful of fresh, organic cilantro into your daily smoothie is one option. Add chopped cilantro to your dishes.
If you are unsure how to get a bit more cilantro into your day, here’s a recipe:
