Symptoms of heavy metal toxicity include chronic fatigue, brain fog, memory loss, migraine headaches, joint pain, and insomnia, just to name a few. They can also make us more susceptible to infections and lead to serious neurological disorders if left untreated.
The good news here is that you can start cleansing your body of heavy metals starting today simply by incorporating a few prized superfoods into your diet.
Spirulina: Having a small dose of this superfood a few times a week can help to rid your system, specifically your nervous system, brain, and liver, of heavy metals. Look for organic if possible.
Cilantro: A handful of cilantro is a superstar to help rid your body of mercury and is easy to add to a few meals a day.
Wild Blueberries: Wild Blueberries help to draw heavy metals out of your brain tissue. Their potent antioxidants help reverse any damage caused by heavy metal poisoning.
Atlantic Dulse: Dulse helps remove heavy metals from the digestive tract and gut (we all know gut health is imperative to overall health!) including lead, nickel, copper, cadmium, and aluminum. It binds to these metals with a strong grip and does not let go until it frees from the body.
Below is one of our new favorite smoothie recipes whose ingredients will bind to the heavy metals in our bodies and make sure that they’re flushed out of the body smoothly.

With love and air guitars!
