January can make many of us feel really lousy. Winter is time for rest, slowing down and focusing inwards yet we often set really restrictive or unfair goals for ourselves.

Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie

Benefits of the Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie Originally formulated by Anthony Williams, this smoothie is as functional as it is delicious!  Recommended in our My Health Reno program and to many of our clients who are on a detoxification  protocols, this smoothie is fantastic alone or in combination with lemon water and celery juice. We call this trio of drinks the “magic morning” 🙂  Here are the benefits of some of ingredients. Remember, these ingredients work synergistically together  to support the healthy detoxification pathways, each ingredient is just as important as the other.   Spirulina – Spirulina is rich in B12, and works synergistically with barley grass juice powder which soaks  up metal metals.  Barley grass juice powder – Has the ability to draw heavy metals out of your spleen, intestinal tract,  pancreas, thyroid, and reproductive system. Barley grass juice extract prepares mercury for complete  absorption by spirulina. Dulse – Rich in iodine, as well as a binder for mercury, lead, aluminum, copper, cadmium and nickel.  Atlantic dulse also serves as emergency backup, helping ensure that all the heavy metals that make it as  far as the colon actually leave the body.  Wild blueberries – Wild blueberries, smaller than farmed blueberries, have a higher surface area of  antioxidants. During heavy metal detoxification the body will experience oxidative stress on a cellular  levels, and needs large amounts of antioxidants to buffer the effects of heavy metal tissue detoxification.    Cilantro – Cilantro is a food based chelator, which means it draws out heavy metals from tissues. Works
