Our tap water contains chlorine, fluoride, and dissolved minerals,calcium, magnesium, sodium, chlorides, sulfates, bicarbonates, iron, manganese, copper, aluminum, nitrates, insecticides and herbicides.
According to a report by the Associated Press, a study of 24 municipal tap water showed that it contains small quantities of pharmaceuticals ( antibiotics, hormones, mood stabilizers) .
Heavy metals accumulate in the body, causing numerous health concerns.
Studies also show that heavy metals in the body may cause :
- cardiovascular disease
- behavioral problems
- kidney dysfunction
- Parkinson’s disease
There is a simple solution –herb cilantro. It is an excellent water purifier that is able to absorb harmful chemicals and heavy metals like lead and nickel.
Chemical agents in cilantro bind to toxic metals, wrest them free from tissues and flush them out of the body.
Cilantro’s purifying power lies in the structure of the outer walls of the microscopic cells and the architecture of these walls make them ideal for absorbing heavy metals.
A research team lead by Douglas Schauer from Ivy Tech Community College in Lafayette, Indiana and a group of Mexican researchers,discovered that cilantro leaves is a cheaper way to filter water.
They tested various samples of plants and determined that cilantro bioabsorbant is the best ,it is replaced by the typical charcoal, which is more costly, in order to capture metal toxicity.
“The organic toxins we can take care of pretty easily with a number of different methods, but the only way to really get rid of those heavy metals is to treat them with filtering agents like activated charcoal, but those types of materials are kind of expensive. They are a little expensive for us to use, but they are very expensive for the people living in that region.”
