We are exposed to heavy metals through food, water, and air. While some heavy metals are essential to our body, most of them could lead to serious health issues and contribute to the development of various diseases.
Optimal nutrition is important when combatting heavy metal toxicity. When you’re body lacks a particular mineral, your body will use heavy metals as a substitute to the missing nutrient. For instance, when your blood contain an inadequate level of magnesium, your body turns to aluminum. Aluminum, when absorbed by our body, can increase the risk of neurological and brain illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease.
