Cilantro and parsley have excellent heavy metal chelating effects. Drinking the juice from these herbs regularly, will gradually help clean out heavy metal poisoning such as aluminium, arsenic, cadmium, mercury, nickel, lead and uranium. If you are often exposed to any of these heavy metals, it may be wise to include these in your juice menu regularly.
When doing a juice cleanse, drink this concoction daily for up to 14 days for a good heavy metal detoxification.

Cilantro and parsley have excellent antimicrobial properties which make them very beneficial for healing the gut. When the gut is healthy, immune system is strengthened, thus reducing the risks of many chronic diseases.
They are also diuretic and make good kidney-cleansing agents that lower the risks of kidney stones. This makes them especially beneficial foods for individuals with high blood sugar levels.
These herbs are best juiced using a masticating juicer. Divide into two or three portions but consume within 48 hours. This juice recipe is very concentrated and potent. Some individuals may experience reactions such as headache or nausea. Be prepared to drink plenty of water (3-4L a day) to follow. Failing to drink plenty of water during this cleanse defeats the purpose of detoxification.
