Heavy Metal Detox

Daily Exposure to Heavy Metal Toxins 

We are exposed to heavy metal toxins in our everyday routine, from the environment we live in to the foods we consume. It is important to beware of common heavy metals that are known to cause damage. Ultimately, every day it is up to ourselves to choose our own healthy living styles.

Mercury

Mercury is a common toxin found in many forms, from dental fillings to seafood. When mercury is consumed, it is stored in the kidneys, blood, brain, bones and fatty tissue. Mercury is commonly found in fish, so you’ll want to monitor your intake moderation.

Aluminum

A toxic metal that causes problems in the brain. Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease have been related to the amount of aluminum accumulation in the brain. Like other heavy toxins, aluminum consumed is stored in the kidneys and brain, along with the lungs, thyroid and liver. Unfortunately, the exposure to aluminum is as easy as drinking water and breathing air. Although it is very easy to be exposed to, it is also a toxin that leaves the body quickly and naturally.

Lead

One of the most well-known toxins that we normally associate with older homes, paint, and unpurified drinking water. Thankfully, from knowledge gained over the years, regulations have been made to reduce this problem. According to the CDC, at least 4 million households are exposed to high levels of lead affecting nearly every system in the human body.
