This smoothie incorporates five potent detoxifiers and when consumed daily, it will assist in drawing out heavy metals from the body. First, binding to them, then pulling them out of the body while delivering essential nutrients to help repair and heal the body.
Toxic metal exposures + are you toxic?
Toxic heavy metals are virtually everywhere and are present in all kinds of things that we come into contact with daily, such as aluminum cans and aluminum foil, batteries, metal cookware, old paint, and even our foods.
For instance, pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides (hard to avoid even on a stringent organic diet) are typical sources of toxic heavy metals. In addition to but not limited to; makeup, shampoo, old metal tooth fillings, fluoride treatments, all medications, deodorant, drinking water, copper pipes, the air, and sprays.
In fact, we are born into this world with toxic heavy metals like mercury and copper already inside our livers (passed down from generation to generation). As a result, most of us carry around toxic heavy metals that have been with us for almost our entire lives; some individuals have a different volume of metals than others and have burrowed deep inside our tissues.
To summarize, toxic heavy metal exposures early in life compromise development, lifelong physical, intellectual, and behavioral impairments such as ADD/ADHD. Toxicity, more specifically neurotoxicity, is one of the root causes of all chronic diseases.
Every kind are harmful
While toxins of every kind are harmful, heavy metals pose a unique infliction on the human body. They are damaging in their own right; they are also a form of neurotoxin (a poison that disrupts nerve function and confuses your immune system). Heavy metal neurotoxins can inflame and irritate our central nervous system-especially our brain, causing multiple symptoms such as memory loss, brain fog, fatigue, and depression.
Toxic heavy metals can also facilitate inflammation in the digestive tract, unleashing poisons into our gut. As if this isn’t alarming enough, heavy metals also serve as a source of food for viruses, bacteria, parasites, and other pathogens in our bodies.
Heavy metals cause severe toxicities in multiple organ systems. They bind in tissues, create oxidative stress, affect endocrine function, and block aquaporins. And interfere with the functions of essential cations such as magnesium and zinc. The immune system is weakened by heavy metals, making it vulnerable to diseases. They feed cancer, bacteria, viruses, and other unwanted invaders, contributing to disease development.
Sadly, the accumulation of heavy metals, mercury deposits, and other toxins is inevitable. There is essentially no way to avoid heavy metal exposure entirely. However, removing most heavy metals you have accumulated and taking steps to lessen your future vulnerability is possible.
Certain heavy metals are necessary for the body, such as cobalt and copper. However, only in small amounts.
The most toxic heavy metals are:
- Arsenic (As)
- Cadmium (Cd)
- Cobalt (Co)
- Copper (Cu)
- Lead (Pb)
- Mercury (Hg)
- Nickel (Ni)
Toxins are the triggers of today’s severe conditions such as:
- Adrenal fatigue
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Blood glucose fluctuations
- Chronic fatigue
- Chronic inflammations
- Hashimoto’s disease
- Multiple sclerosis
Signs + Symptoms
The signs and symptoms that you may experience depend upon the type of metal, form, quantity, length of exposure, age of exposure, and general state of health. Clearly, certain metals are much more toxic than others, and one form of a metal may be more harmful than other forms. Such as an organic versus an inorganic metal compound. Toxic heavy metals over time can oxidize, causing damage to surrounding tissue and promoting inflammation.
“Severe mental and physical deteriorations such as Alzheimer’s, ALS, and Parkinson’s disease—metals and pathogens can cause that.”

How do I check for heavy metals in my body?
There are several ways of testing for heavy metals in the body. Heavy metal testing can be measured in a medical laboratory with a magnetic bioresonance analyzer or heavy metal blood tests. Such as a heavy metal panel or heavy metal toxicity test that tests urine, hair, and body tissue. There are also numerable at-home testing kits available.
Urine and blood can both be accepted for heavy metal testing. However, they do not necessarily test for the same forms of metal. For example, methylmercury – an organic, highly toxic form of mercury found in fish – can be detected in the blood but not in urine. Urine is the preferred specimen for measuring inorganic forms of mercury and for measuring arsenic. For lead, blood more accurately correlates with adverse health effects than other fluids or tissues.

Foods to avoid while detoxing with the heavy metal detox smoothie
Although this heavy metal smoothie is labeled a “detox,” it should be noted as a healing smoothie that you should incorporate daily as a regimen for life—a complete life change.
However, an effective heavy metal detox incorporates more than having healthy fruits and vegetables in your diet. It includes the removal of foods that are “labeled healthy” that are very high in mercury and other metals. Specific foods to avoid in your heavy metal detox include but are not limited to:
- Certain fish, such as Barramundi, Gemfish, Ling, Orange roughy, Ray, Shark, Southern bluefin tuna, and Swordfish. These fish tend to have high amounts of mercury.
- Non-organic foods.
- Rice (specifically, brown rice) because it often contains arsenic.
The aforementioned is notably true for processed foods and excess fats. These foods have minimal nutritional value and dramatically halt the detox process.
Fats Oxidize Metals
When we have toxic heavy metals inside our body and the more fat we put inside our body, the more these heavy metals oxidize, the fats cling to the metals and cause them to rush and decay and oxidize. We faster deuterate later; we age more quickly in the brain.
Whether good or bad, Fats tend to soak up the harmful elements you want to remove from your body. Fatty deposits cling to toxic heavy metal deposits like suction cups, and when they touch, it causes the metals to oxidize. Then a by-product of the metal develops a potent discharge-a production occurs. Toxic heavy metals possess a destructive charge.
If you are heavy metal toxic, proper body preparation is essential to a safe, effective heavy metal detox program. When you begin to cleanse your body, you should consider all organs involved in the detoxification. The liver, lymph nodes, and kidneys, as well as the intestines, need your support.
Five powerful detoxifier’s in the heavy metal detox smoothie
These five foods form your best aggressive performance against heavy metals. They each have their strengths, performing complex functions in the detoxification process. They work simultaneously in harmony with each other to effectively eliminate the toxic heavy metals in your body.
1 – Atlantic dulse (Palmaria palmata):
Although Atlantic red seaweed comes from the ocean, it will not expel mercury it might have. Atlantic dulse holds on to the mercury as it works within, divulging deep into the digestive tract. And binding onto any mercury until it leaves the body.
In addition to mercury, this edible seaweed also attaches to aluminum, cadmium, copper, lead, and nickel. Unlike other seaweeds, the Atlantic dulse is very powerful for eliminating mercury on its own. This seaweed also crosses the blood-brain barrier as well.
2 – Organic Barley Grass Juice Powder:
Barley is an energizing chlorophyll-rich grass. Barley Grass can pull heavy metals out of your intestinal tract, pancreas, reproductive system, spleen, and thyroid. And prepares the mercury for complete absorption by the spirulina.
3 – Organic Fresh Cilantro:
Cilantro travels deep into hard-to-reach places, extracting metals from long ago. The action of cilantro is fast (about 20 min). Cilantro mobilizes mercury and other neurotoxins from the cell membranes but does not chelate (or pull them out well). Therefore, a vital detox strategy is to have Spirulina on board when mobilization (taking cilantro) to chelate the metals more effectively.
4 – Organic Spirulina:
Spirulina is rich in Chlorophyll (10x more than wheatgrass) and is an excellent absorber of heavy metals absorbing these toxins like a sponge. This nutritious blue-green algae pulls out heavy metals from your brain, central nervous system, and liver. It also absorbs heavy metals extracted by barley grass.
5 – Organic Maine Wild Blueberries:
Wild organic blueberries specifically from Maine pull heavy metals out of your brain tissue. As well as healing and repairing any gaps created by oxidation when the heavy metals are separated. It is necessary to use wild blueberries from Maine, as they hold unique phytonutrients with exceptional detoxifying capabilities. While cultivated blueberries are nutritious as well, they lack the metal-drawing ability of the wild blueberries.
When purchasing wild blueberries from Maine, make certain your wild blueberries have the USDA certified organic logo. Another to look for is the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners MOFGA logo. Commercial Wild Blueberries are heavily managed and sprayed with pesticides and herbicides.
Spirulina is a type of cyanobacteria from a family of single-celled microbes often referred to as blue-green algae that grow in both fresh and saltwater. It is prone to numerous environmental contamination issues and can readily absorb heavy metals, radiation, and other toxins in the air and water. In addition, when grown in uncontrolled environments like natural springs and lakes, certain strains like BMAA can also generate a toxin that is dangerous to humans called microcystins (MCs).
When purchasing Spirulina, acquire high-quality products from a reputable company, like Vimergy, and ensure your Spirulina is grown and harvested safely.
