Why I drink the Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie daily

2 May 2021 - Wynke Haanstra

Toxic heavy metals are literally all around us and are found in a lot’s of (consumer) products that we come into contact with every day. Think of aluminum foil, cans, chewing gum paper, toothpaste, batteries, makeup, deodorant, paint but also on our food (pesticides). In short: you can do a lot to avoid it, but the reality is that you cannot escape it. 

Heavy metals literally poison our bodies. They can oxidize and produce neurotoxins (toxins that affect the functioning of the nervous system). Neurotoxins promote inflammation in organs, brain and nervous system. When that happens, you can experience symptoms like memory loss, brain fog, fatigue and depression. Toxic heavy metals also cause inflammation in our gastrointestinal system. 

Apart from causing problems and damage themselves, heavy metals are also good ‘food’ for many bacteria, parasites and viruses in our bodies. They thrive on metals, and that’s exactly what we don’t want!

The ingredients of this delicious smoothie work in synergy to get heavy metals like mercury, lead, aluminum, nickel, copper and cadmium out of your body. If you drink this smoothie every day you can be sure that more metals are going out, than are coming in daily and you will soon notice a difference (in symptoms)!


  • 2 bananas
  • 1 orange (squeezed!)
  • 250 grams of wild blueberries
  • 1 big hand of fresh coriander
  • 1-2 teaspoons spirulina
  • 1-2 teaspoons barley grass juice powder
  • 1 tablespoon atlantic dulse flakes 
  • 1 cup water (optional) 

How do the 5 key ingredients work together?

Barley grass juice powder: prepares metals to be completely absorbed by spirulina. This grass has the power to pull heavy metals from your spleen, pancreas, intestines, reproductive organs and thyroid. 

Spirulina: pulls heavy metals from your brain, liver and nervous system. It absorbs the heavy metals that are loosened by the barley grass juice powder. Note that Hawaiian spirulina is of highest quality. 

Cilantro: has the ability to go very deep and bind onto heavy metals in hard to reach places, including metals that have been there all your life because you inherited them from your ancestors (mercury). 

Atlantic dulse: this edible seaweed binds to lead, aluminum, copper, cadmium, nickel and mercury. It especially goes deep into the digestive tract and intestines where it binds to metals and won’t let go so the metals can be safely disposed of. 

Wild blueberries: pull heavy metals out of your brain. Wild blueberries are super healing for Alzheimer’s and dementia.
