Cilantro Pesto for Heavy Metal Removal

Posted by on August 1, 2012

Eating fresh cilantro is an excellent way to remove heavy metals from the body. Properties in cilantro binds with mercury, lead, and aluminum in the tissue and is excreted in the urine. Research supporting this can be read here.

The dosage is two tablespoons a day for two to three weeks but in my opinion who could ever get enough cilantro? For optimal results, the cilantro should be consumed raw. This is a yummy recipe for Cilantro Pesto that I eat by the spoonfuls. For those who aren’t quite that enthusiastic about cilantro, you can eat this with rice and beans or mixed in a salad dressing.
