Heavy metals are all around us and in many cases, inside us. Mercury, lead, and aluminum are some examples of heavy metals that can be in the water we drink, foods we eat, and even in some make up products. * However, there are foods that naturally help your body to rid itself of harmful heavy metal toxins that we’ll further discuss.
Lemons-High in vitamin C, lemons can help change toxins into a water soluble form that can be more readily excreted from the body. * Further, lemons stimulate enzymes which is key to the detoxification process. *
Garlic-Garlic Contains sulfur, which assists the liver in the detoxification of heavy metals by producing detoxification enzymes. *
Aged Beet Root-High in several vitamins and minerals including vitamin C and magnesium, fermented beet root also contains betaine which promotes digestion to excrete toxins from the body. *
Incorporating any or all of these three foods in your diet can greatly assist you in effectively eliminating heavy metal toxins in the body. As always, please consult with your healthcare provider before making any changes to your dietary, exercise or medical regimen.
