Help your body handle its heavy-metal housekeeping with the cleansing power of Brown Seaweed Sodium Alginate with Cilantro Leaf. Toxic chemicals and heavy metals with which we come into contact every day can place a heavy burden on the body, compromising our health and well-being. The air we breathe, the foods we eat, the water we drink and bathe in, cosmetics and hygiene products we put on our skin, household cleaning products—the sources of these harmful substances are nearly endless and virtually impossible to avoid. As the body’s primary detoxifying organ, the liver works hard to remove heavy metals and toxins from the system, but with chronic exposure year after year, it can be overwhelmed. That’s why more and more health-conscious individuals are making regular detoxing a central part of their strategy for maintaining optimal health and well-being. That’s where our new Brown Seaweed Sodium Alginate with Cilantro Leaf can help. Cilantro has long been valued as a premier detoxifying herb, and combined with sodium alginate, it’s even better. A polysaccharide extracted from brown seaweed, sodium alginate is remarkably effective at binding with heavy metals in the bloodstream for safe elimination from the body. Together they provide a great way to aid your body’s detoxification processes.

Excellent combination
This product contains both sodium alginate and cilantro leaf. They both chelate heavy metals quite and together the results are truly great. I love this product.

Why do you buy and use Sodium Alginate? I buy and use Sodium Alginate for detoxification of heavy metals and toxic elements, such as lead, aluminum, mercury, cadmium, and fluoride. Have you seen the very high priced heavy-metal-detox product advertised all over the place a lot lately? It contains pectin and alginate. It probably works well. They probably sell a lot of it. For me. . . . I like to eat Organic Apples. I always have one regular size, or preferably two small organic apples daily. I have been aware of Apple Pectin's fat emulsifying and also detoxifying properties for quite a while, really at least back to the 1970s. The greatest concentration of the detoxifying pectin is in the peel, so that is why I go for two of the 2" diameter apples rather than one large apple - - - to get a higher proportion of pectin by eating a greater amount of the peel in proportion to the overall weight/volume of apple I consume. Alginate is the other detoxifying ingredient in that expensive heavy-metal-detox product that is being heavily promoted. Well, low and behold, here is Sodium Alginate from Brown Seaweed under the Swanson brand at a reasonable price. I’ve read a lot of good things about Brown Seaweed, and I’ve seemingly always known what a good purification magnate and sponge Alginate is. So, being a good scientist, I put together my own combination of Pectin and Alginate by eating my 1 or 2 apples, and at the same time, taking 3 or 4 of these Sodium Alginate capsules. I accompany this snack with a couple of glasses of pure water to give the Alginate and Pectin plenty of liquid in which to expand. This ’snack’ is not only detoxifying, but very filling / satisfying. It fills you right up. Think about the added value of that. Sure, I know that the pectin touted in the expensive detox product is a citrus pectin rather than an apple pectin, and the citrus pectin is allegedly milled down to a super fine state. I’m not going to be eating citrus peels to get my pectin. One can buy citrus pectin, and I’m sure it is good. The citrus pectin people claim it is the best. Okay, whatever. However, I’m an old Apple Pectin guy, based on over four decades of successful experience and results. So, all things considered, weighed, and analyzed by me, I prefer to go with my Apple + Alginate combo. Works for me.
