Activated charcoal: View products with Activated Charcoal
Activated charcoal is a fine black powder made from bone char, coconut shells, peat, petroleum coke, coal, olive pits or sawdust. It becomes "activated charcoal" when high temperatures combine with a gas or activating agent to expand its surface area.
It has a variety of proposed benefits, ranging from lowering cholesterol to whitening teeth and curing hangovers.
Activated charcoal works by trapping toxins and chemicals in the gut, preventing their absorption. The charcoal's porous texture has a negative electrical charge, which causes it to attract positively charged molecules, such as toxins and gases. This helps it trap toxins and chemicals in the gut. Because activated charcoal is not absorbed by your body, it can carry the toxins bound to its surface out of your body in feces.
Activated charcoal can bind a variety of drugs and toxins, preventing their absorption into the body. It's often used as an anti-poison treatment or to treat drug overdoses.
Activated charcoal may also help reduce cholesterol levels. That's because it can bind cholesterol and cholesterol-containing bile acids in the gut, preventing the body from absorbing them.
Some studies report that activated charcoal may help reduce gas production following a gas-producing meal. It may also help improve the odor of gas.
Tooth whitening: Using activated charcoal to brush your teeth is said to whiten them. it does this by absorbing plaque and other teeth-staining compounds.
Hangover prevention: Activated charcoal is sometimes used as a hangover cure. While consuming it with alcohol may reduce blood alcohol levels.
ONE IMPORTANT NOTE TO TAKE INTO FACTOR HERE: charcoal will also bind to nutrients and minerals, so if you take it with a meal it will get rid of those nutrients , so just keep that in mind. I know many put it with their raw juices, which defeats the point because it will flush out all those nutrients, so you are throwing your money away. You dont need to have it with anything else but water. There is no taste to it at all.
We wrote an article about this which will explain all this.
Aloe Vera: View products with Aloe Vera
There are numerous benefits to gain from drinking the juice from the aloe vera plant. Hydration, clear skin, digestion, alkalinity, constipation relief and liver detox. It is also good for overal organ health. Beyond that it is a good source of nutrients like important vitamins and minerals like vitamins B, C, E, and folic acid. The gel of the aloe vera plant is made up of around 96% water, some organic and inorganic compounds, a type of protein which contains 18 of the 20 amino acids found in the body.
One of the most crucial elements found in aloe vera gel is a complex carbohydrate known as acemannan. It allows nutrients to reach the cells, nourish them and at the same time relieve them of toxins.Ayurveda, Chinese herbal medicine and British herbal medicine have all advocated aloe vera as a healer, when applied or consumed orally.
Aloe vera can improve the effectiveness of your diet and maximise your weight-loss potential. With ample amounts of vitamins and minerals that contribute to weight-loss, as well as amino acids, enzymes and sterols, aloe vera ensures your diet is not only supportive of weight-loss, but also improves the body's absorption and utilisation, improving overall health as well as weight-loss success.
Aloe vera contains something called proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp. It also acts as a great conditioner and leaves your hair all smooth and shiny. It promotes hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, reduces dandruff and conditions your hair. Diane Gage, author of Aloe Vera: Nature's Soothing Healer says, "Keratin, the primary protein of hair, consists of amino acids, oxygen, carbon, and small amounts of hydrogen, nitrogen, and sulphur. Aloe vera has a chemical make up similar to that of keratin and it rejuvenates the hair with its own nutrients, giving it more elasticity and preventing breakage."
Apples: View products with Apple
Apples are a good source of pectin, a soluble fiber. It aids in appetite control and improves digestion. Pectin reduces cholesterol and helps maintain steady blood sugar levels.
Apples are rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, biotin, folic acid and pantothenic acid. They have a very high mineral content, which is beneficial for the health of your skin, hair and fingernails. Apple skin is a source of quercetin, an antioxidant that keeps the heart and lungs healthy. Apples also contain a huge number of protective compounds – flavonoids, which are absorbed by the body and help make lung tissue healthier and more resistant to disease. So the old saying 'an apple a day keeps the doctor away' still holds true to this day. It helps reduce the risk of lung cancer while helping to boost resistance to respiratory illnesses.
BUY ORGANIC. WHY? Apples are at the top of the list of produce most contaminated with pesticides. 92% of apples contained two or more pesticides. Even more pesticides and fungicides are applied after the harvest so the fruit can have a longer shelf life. We only use granny smith apples in our juices as they are low on the glycemic index plus they taste way better!
Arugula: View products with Arugula
Arugula is a lesser known cruciferous vegetable that provides many of the same benefits as other vegetables of the same family, such as broccoli, kale, and Brussels sprouts. The health benefits of arugula include weight loss, a reduced risk of cancer, healthy bones, and an improved eyesight. It has antioxidant properties and is good for skin. It also helps in strengthening the brain, improving metabolic functions, mineral absorption, and boosting the immune system.
Arugula is a leafy green plant packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It is a good dietary choice for a healthy body and keeping the mind clear and focused. It contains high levels of folic acid and antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin K, and vitamin A, which makes it integral in the fight against free radicals. It is packed with carotenoids, as well as many other minerals like potassium, manganese, iron, and calcium. Arugula contributes to your daily need for calcium, providing 64 mg in two cups.
Arugula contains phytochemicals, which are beneficial in preventing cancer. It is also superior to some other leafy greens because unlike other varieties, arugula is low in oxalates, which are chemicals that actually inhibit the absorption of minerals into the body. All in all, arugula is a low-calorie, nutrient-rich food.
The presence of vitamin K in arugula gives an anti-inflammatory boost to your body. Vitamin K also spurs an osteotropic activity in cells, meaning that promotes bone formation. The gradual degradation of neural pathways, found in conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, can be slowed down by an increase in intake of vitamin K. As a good source of Vitamin K, the consumption of arugula has been cited as a preventative method of such diseases.
Arugula’s combinative effects of low oxalate levels (allowing more minerals into the system) and the presence of so many minerals in the plant itself make it a strong support system for healthy bones.
The body is stimulated to create white blood cells from the copper in arugula, and the plant has a number of other ways to improve the strength of your immune system.
Vitamin C is one of the best defenses for your body to seek out dangerous, inflammatory free radicals and eliminate them from your body before they can cause real damage. This well-known vitamin is found in large quantities in arugula and helps prevent cancer and maintain good health by giving an extra push to your immune system.
Another benefit of arugula is the presence of B-Complex vitamins that promote metabolism. Eight B vitamins participate and aid in all different cell activities, including energy production, fat synthesis, the production of red blood cells, and many other vital processes for cell and metabolic health. Arugula is a well-known source of carotenoids, which are naturally occurring pigments that have long been famous for improving a person’s ability to see properly. Arugula has a very low level of oxalates when compared to other popular leafy vegetables like spinach. Oxalates inhibit the absorption of minerals by the body’s systems, which is counterproductive to consuming minerals in the same bite. So the minerals, like copper and iron, which you get from the plant, are more easily absorbed by the body for efficient use.
Beets: View products with Beet
Beet greens contain an abundance of chlorophyll, vitamin A and C. It also has a high mineral content, being especially rich in calcium and potassium. Beets contain fiber, vitamins C and K. Also rich in folate, which we all know as folic acid, a natural substance which aids in preventing certain birth defects and heart disease.
The betaine in beet juice stimulates the function of the liver cells and protects the liver and bile ducts. Beets are an excellent way to detoxify and renew the blood with minerals and natural sugars. It helps reconstitute the blood, bringing important sustenance to the brain, heart, lungs, liver and kidneys. For all the women out there, did you know that beet juice helps alleviate menstrual disturbances and menopausal symptoms? There is more. It's a powerful kidney and blood cleanser. So stop worrying about its sugar content, it's natural sugars.
Bentonite Clay: View products with Bentonite Clay
Bentonite clay is clay formed from the ash of volcanoes. The name “Bentonite” comes from the location of the largest source of the clay: Fort Benton, WY. Since the time of Aristotle, clays like bentonite have been used internally to soothe digestive ailments and topically to absorb toxins from the skin. SO how does bentonite clay work exactly? Believe it or not, it’s all about electricity. You see, your body is as much electric in nature as it is chemical. Your nervous system, brain, and circulatory system all operate on electrical impulses. This is what is measured when you have an EKG, for example. Bentonite clay produces an electrical charge when it contacts water. This negative charge attracts positively-charged toxins like toxic metals and chemicals. Like a magnetic sponge, it holds onto impurities and carries them out of the body for elimination.
Bentonite clay supports normal digestion, bacterial balance, the immune system, the liver, the body’s natural detoxification abilities, and more. Without a diet that’s rich in vegetables, fruits, and other whole foods, most of us don’t get enough alkalizing, mineral-rich foods in our diet. This matters because your body requires a complete collection of minerals to function. When those minerals aren’t present, it affects your health. Bentonite clay is naturally rich in minerals, and it can provide the minerals and trace minerals that you need for a healthy pH balance.
Due to its ability to keep toxins at bay in the digestive tract, bentonite helps support a diverse and robust gut microbiota. A healthy gut is essential not just for digestive health, but also a strong immune system. Studies published in such prestigious journals as The Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy found that the minerals in bentonite clay, and other clays, have an impressive action against antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Due to its magnetic properties, bentonite clay has shown promise in attracting and removing health-damaging environmental toxins like VOCs, which are a broad collection of toxic chemicals commonly found in paints, cleaning supplies, office equipment, permanent markers, and hundreds of other household products.
The key is to choose the right form of bentonite clay. Bentonite clay is available in food grade and non-food-grade form. Sodium Bentonite is the form of bentonite clay that’s suitable for human consumption, and Calcium Bentonite is typically used for topical application (for face creams, masks for face and hair).

Blackberry: View products with Blackberry
This berry contains at least a third of the daily recommended value for four important nutrients and has been found to fight everything from premature skin aging to aggressive cancers. blackberries rank as one of the top 10 highest-antioxidant foods, according to its ORAC value. With an ORAC score of 5,905, these tiny fruits deliver a powerful punch of antioxidants with each bite, helping you fight disease, boost immunity and maintain premium health.
Blackberries contain polyphenols, a class of antioxidants known for their cancer-fighting abilities. Specifically, anthocyanin (a particular polyphenol) is found in high concentrations in this fruit. Anthocyanins are thought of as the primary weapon blackberries use against the development of cancer. One serving of blackberries has over a third of the daily recommended value of vitamin K, which plays a part in helping prevent and fight prostate, colon, stomach, nasal, oral and liver cancers. The presence of vitamin K helps regulate hormone function and thereby potentially reduces cramping pains. As a blood-clotting vitamin, it can also help with excessive bleeding and give some pain relief during heavy menstrual cycles.
The vitamin K in blackberries is important for the health of your entire cardiovascular system. Healthy consumption of vitamin K is also linked to healthy blood pressure levels, reduced inflammation in cells, as well as a lower chance of heart attack.
Just one cup of raw blackberries has 30.2 milligrams of vitamin C. That’s half the daily recommended value. Vitamin C is integral to collagen formation in bones, connective tissue, and blood vessels. For such a tiny berry, blackberries are high in fiber. One cup of raw blackberries has almost 8 grams.
Blackberries also show antibacterial activity, another function by which they protect your body from disease. They can reduce the impact of oral infections by targeting infected cells while leaving other cells untouched, making them a potentially powerful agent to treat infection. Blackberries naturally cause a reduction in inflammation and allow your body’s processes to happen as they should, rather than on overdrive.
Blueberry: View products with Blueberry
Blueberries are among the most nutrient dense berries. They are also about 85% water, and an entire cup contains only 84 calories, with 15 grams of carbohydrates. They are high in fiber, manganese, vitamin C and vitamin K. Blueberries have the highest antioxidant capacity of all commonly consumed fruits and vegetables. Flavonoids appear to be the major antioxidant compounds. Several studies have shown that blueberries and blueberry juice can protect against DNA damage, a leading driver of aging and cancer. ping to improve brain function and delaying age-related decline. The antioxidants in blueberries have been shown to protect LDL lipoproteins (the "bad" cholesterol) from oxidative damage, a crucial step in the pathway towards heart disease. The antioxidants in blueberries seem to have benefits for the brain, helping to improve brain function and delaying age-related decline.
Like cranberries, blueberries contain substances that can prevent certain bacteria from binding to the wall of the urinary bladder. This may be useful in preventing urinary tract infections.
Strenuous exercise can lead to muscle soreness and fatigue. This is driven, in part, by local inflammation and oxidative stress in the muscle tissue . Blueberry reduce the damage that occurs at the molecular level, minimizing soreness and reduction in muscle performance.
Bok Choy: View products with Bok Choy
Bok Choy contains a wealth of vitamins C, A, and K, and excellent sources of calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and iron. Bok choy deserves its reputation as a powerhouse among vegetables. Vitamin A, for instance, is essential for a properly functioning immune system, while vitamin C is an antioxidant that shields the body from free radicals. Bok choy supplies potassium for healthy muscle and nerve function, and vitamin B6 for carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism.
The list of attributes for this one vegetable is virtually endless. That’s why it’s one of Dr. Mercola’s most highly recommended vegetables. Because of its strong beta-carotene content, bok choy ranks as our 11th richest food in vitamin A. This vitamin A richness places bok choy ahead of some of its fellow cruciferous vegetables, including cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli. Beta carotene levels in bok choy are high enough for the veggie to be highly recommended by the Macular Degeneration Association. In fact, a single cup of bok choy contains the entire RDA of beta carotene, which has been shown to prevent night blindness and possibly reduce the risk of cataract and macular degeneration.
The Harvard School of Public Health released the findings of an interesting study, asserting that high dairy intake can increase the risk of prostate cancer and possibly ovarian cancer. The study suggested that better forms of calcium should come from collards and bok choy.
Another study by the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center and the Shanghai Center for Disease Control and Prevention showed that eating dark, leafy green vegetables such as bok choy may improve breast cancer survival. A study of nearly 5,000 Chinese breast cancer survivors revealed a 27 to 62 percent decrease in the risk of dying from the disease when they consumed more cruciferous vegetables. Further, the chance of breast cancer recurrence in those participating in the program dropped by 21 to 35 percent. Phenols and other phytonutrients in bok choy represent what is now known to be a full spectrum of over 70 antioxidants in this cruciferous vegetable. The antioxidant richness of bok choy partly explains ongoing investigation of bok choy in relationship to cancer prevention since prevention and reduction of oxidative stress has often been linked to decreased cancer risk. Bok choy also contains glucosinolates, sulfur-containing compounds associated with reduced cancer risk.
Broccoli: View products with Broccoli
Broccoli is a potent anti-oxidant which has been proven to protect against cancer. It is loaded with Vitamin C, more so than oranges, that we should all be consuming as much as possible – especially to prevent cancer. A chemical called Sulforaphane is in broccoli, it has been shown to kill peptic ulcers and gastritis.
A scientific fact for you to ponder on as you drink one of our broccoli raw juice combinations: Broccoli resonates energetically at 300MHz!! Compare this to our bodies that start to become diseased if its cells are resonating below 50MHz and a cancer cell resonates between 0 and 30MHz.
Cabbage: View products with Cabbage
Red or Green, cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable along with cauliflower, kale, cress, bok choy, broccoli and a few other green leaf vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables have long been praised for being healthy and important additions to one's diet. Sources recommend a minimum of 3-4 servings of cruciferous vegetables a week. These veggies are "Super-Veggies" because of all of the nutrient goodness locked inside: They all contain phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals, and fiber that are important to your health (although some have more than others)…One of the big reasons to eat plenty of cruciferous vegetables is that they may help to lower your risk of getting cancer.
Red Cabbage known as purple cabbage, is darker in color than it's green counterpart, because it has a higher "concentration of anthocyanin polyphenols, which contribute to red cabbage containing significantly more protective phytonutrients than green cabbage." Anthocyanin Polyphenols are pigment compounds found in many plants that lend them their characteristic colors and have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and potentially protective properties.

The three most important elements of carrots are beta-corotene, vitamin A and phytochemicals. There is powerful health benefits including beautiful skin, cancer prevention, and anti-aging. With that said they also improve muscle, soft tissue and skin health. While reducing the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure, while boosting immunity and protecting the skin against sun damage.
Studies have shown carrots reduce the risk of lung cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer. because of falcarinol and falcarindiol which they feel cause the anticancer properties. The high levels beta-carotene also act as an antioxidant to cell damage done to the body through regular metabolism. It helps slow down the aging of cells. Beta Carotene is also converted into vitamin A in the liver, which helps our retina. Carrots are good for the eyes. Vitamin A and antioxidants protects the skin from sun damage. Deficiencies of vitamin A cause dryness to the skin, hair and nails. This vitamin helps prevent premature wrinkling, acne, dry skin, pigmentation, blemishes, uneven skin tone. Vitamin A assists the liver in flushing out the toxins from the body. It reduces the bile and fat in the liver. The fiber in carrot juice helps clean out the colon and waste movement. Carrots have not only beta-carotene but also alpha-carotene and lutein. The regular consumption of carrots also reduces cholesterol levels because the soluble fibers in carrots binding with bile acids.
BUY ORGANIC. WHY? Carrots soak up agricultural chemicals lurking in the soil. Conventional growers fumigate soil to kill pests such as carrot-fly larvae and nematodes, which nibble farm produce when they’ve run out of other organic matter to eat. Further, seeds are pretreated with fungicide before they’re planted. And just before the carrots emerge, they’re sprayed with a weedkiller. Not sure about you but that is a lot of chemicals for one vegetable’s life cycle.
Cayenne Pepper: View products with Cayenne Pepper
A single teaspoon of cayenne pepper imparts 15 percent of the daily recommended value in vitamin A (good for fighting infection, as well as to maintain healthy mucous membranes, from your lungs to your urinary tract), and 3 percent of the vitamin E (aka alpha tocopherol).

Celery: View products with Celery
Celery leaves have a high content of vitamin A. while the stems are an excellent source of vitamins B1, B2, B6 and C with rich supplies of potassium, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, sodium and plenty essential amino acids. Including just 4 stalks of celery in your morning raw juice can lower high blood pressure by 12 to 14%. The Chinese have been using celery for centuries to reduce blood pressure and now you know why.
Celery contains 8 families of anticancer compounds. One of the active compounds called Phthalides, which are known to relax the muscles of the arteries that regulate blood pressure, allowing them to dilate. It also helps reduce stress hormones. Celery also contains a compound called coumarins that helps prevent free radicals from damaging cells. Decreasing the mutations that increase the potential for cells to become cancerous. How you ask? It magnifies the activity of certain white blood cells, immune defenders that target and eliminate potentially harmful cells, including cancers cells. A third compound in celery known as acetylenics has been shown to stop the growth of tumor cells. Phenolic acids which block the action of prostaglandins that encourages the growth of tumor cells.
What Celery is most famously known for is its high content of organic sodium. The important minerals celery raw juice balances the body's blood pH, neutralizing acidity. And celery juice acts as the perfect post-workout tonic as it replaces lost electrolytes and re-hydrates the body with its rich minerals. The natural organic sodium (salt) in celery is very safe for consumption, in fact it is essential for the body. People with high blood pressure can safely take the sodium in celery, unlike table salt (iodized sodium) which is harmful.
Nutrients in the fiber are released during juicing that helps aid bowel movements, it has a natural laxative in the juice that helps relieve constipation. It is also a diuretic cause of the potassium and sodium in the juice that regulates blood fluid and stimulates urine production, getting rid of the bodies excess fluid. Helping those who suffer from urinary and gall bladder stones. It promotes healthy and normal kidney function by aiding elimination of toxins from the body. While eliminating toxins, it also prevents formation of kidney stones.
The polyacetylene in celery is an amazing relief for all inflammation like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, asthma and bronchitis. The Juice also helps lower cholesterol and LDL (bad) chlolesterol. Celery is a constant ingredient in a lot of our 800+ Raw juices and after reading the above it becomes clear why.
Chlorella: View products with Chlorella
Chlorella is a blue-green algae like its cousin spirulina. chlorella is one of the most nutrient-dense superfoods in the world. Its rich in phytonutrients, including amino acids, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, potassium, phosphorous, biotin, magnesium and the B-complex vitamins. It is more nutrient dense per gram than other greens, including kale, spinach and broccoli!
Chlorella benefits the entire body by supporting healthy hormonal function, promoting cardiovascular health, helping to negate the effects of chemotherapy and radiation, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, aiding in the detoxification of our bodies, and chlorella activates a number of genes at the cellular level that improve insulin sensitivity, encouraging a healthy balance for diabetics with type 2.
Chlorella’s rich green color comes from a high concentration of chlorophyll. Chlorella’s high levels of chlorophyll have been shown to protect the body against ultraviolet radiation treatments and Chemo while removing radioactive particles from the body. But it does stop there First, when taken preemptively, it strengthens the immune system, so our bodies respond properly. Second, because it removes heavy metals and toxins from our body, we are less likely to get environmentally based cancers. Third, studies have shown that individuals once diagnosed with cancer, chlorella enhances the action of T cells helping to fight new abnormal cells. And again, if cancer is diagnosed, and chemotherapy or radiation therapy is used, chlorella can help to fight the side effects and be used in addition to natural cancer treatments.
One of chlorella’s most significant health benefits is that it wraps itself around even stubborn toxins residing in our bodies, such as lead, cadmium, mercury and uranium, and keeps them from being reabsorbed. Regular consumption of chlorella can even help keep heavy metals from accumulating in our bodies’ soft tissues and organs in the first place.
Chlorella benefits you by helping to regulate hormones, helping with metabolism, improving circulation, and promoting higher levels of energy. It also helps to reduce weight and body fat, and removes stored toxins. As our bodies lose weight, toxins are released, and can be reabsorbed. It is important to flush these toxins out of our system as quickly as possible. Chlorella’s ability to surround the toxins and heavy metals resident in our bodies helps facilitate elimination and prevent reabsorption.
All you ladies will love this one chlorella is effective at giving you younger looking skin. Because it naturally increases levels of vitamin A, vitamin C and glutathione in your body which eliminates free-radicals and protects your cells.
When purchasing a chlorella supplement make sure to buy “cracked cell wall chlorella” because they are completely absorbable.
Chlorophyll: View products with Chlorophyll
Chlorophyll is a type of plant pigment responsible for the absorption of light in the process of photosynthesis, which creates energy. So all green leafy vegetables and plants you see and eat have chlorophyll, including spirulina and chlorella.
Chlorophyll blocks carcinogenic effects within the body and protects DNA from damage caused by toxic molds. And that’s just one of the five major chlorophyll benefits for human health, all of which help cleanse the body and allow it to function at an optimal level.
Chlorophyll can bind to potential carcinogens and interfere with how they’re absorbed within the human gastrointestinal track. This helps stop them from being circulated throughout the body and reaching susceptible tissues, such as those within the joints or heart. Chlorophyll decreases the risk for cancer development and cleanses the liver by interfering with the metabolism of chemicals’ procarcinogen, which must first be metabolized in order to damage DNA. Within the human body, enzymes called cytochrome P450 activate procarcinogens and turn them into active carcinogens, which go on to attack healthy cells. This means inhibiting their effects can help stop the process of chemically induced cancers.
Chlorophyll promotes optimal liver health and therefore the body’s natural elimination of potentially harmful toxins by increasing phase II biotransformation enzymes. So it protects healthy cells and tissues. Another way that chlorophyll improves detoxification is by speeding up waste elimination, balancing fluid levels and reducing cases of constipation
On a molecular level, the structure of chlorophyll is very similar to hemoglobin present in human blood. Hemoglobin carries oxygen to the lungs and other respiratory surfaces to be released into tissues throughout the body. The primary reason chlorophyll is considered a superfood is because of its strong antioxidant and anticancer effects. Chlorophyll benefits the immune system because it’s able to form tight molecular bonds with certain chemicals that contribute to oxidative damage and diseases like cancer.
Cilantro: View products with Cilantro
Cilantro is loaded with beneficial phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Cilantro is very low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and the caloric value is nearly nonexistent. It is a good source of dietary fiber, vitamins A, C, E, K, calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium. Just a ¼ cup of fresh cilantro provides 270 IU of Vitamin A, and 16% of the daily value recommended of vitamin K. The vitamin K and calcium content of cilantro help to build strong bones, teeth, and hair.
Arsenic, cadmium, aluminum, lead, and mercury can become resident in our tissues leading to heart disease, hormonal imbalances, neurological conditions, infertility, and so much more. Cilantro, also known scientifically as “Coriandrum sativum”, has been shown to bind these toxic metals together, loosening them from tissue, and facilitating their elimination from the body. Cilantro is considered a chelator, that is it can bind to heavy metals and allow your body to excrete them. This is big since most people are unknowingly exposed to heavy metals on a regular basis. Cilantro benefits not only detox the body but also protect it from infection and toxins. Its natural antibacterial properties helps to protect against both food and water borne diseases including food poisoning, dysentery, salmonella, cholera, and particularly listeria.
The phytochemicals in cilantro help protect your heart from oxidative damage helping to keep it healthy. Cilantro also shows the ability to help balance blood sugar levels, giving another good reason to add it to salads, juices and smoothies. Given how damaging elevated levels of glucose in the body can be, everyone can benefit from keeping blood sugar levels balanced.
