Cilantro Water with or w/o Fruit (Detox Beverage)

Tiffany Bannworth


Cilantro is long prized for its ability to detox the body.

Cilantro is so effectual it can even rid the body of heavy metal poisoning from elements like mercury and lead.

I would recommend drinking this regularly, but monthly or quarterly is a great bare minimum regime.

Enjoy, drink up, and feel BETTER!!!

The main photo is a with and without fruit version. The recipe renders 1 quart. Pictured is 2. Some people have been reported to say that Cilantro leaves a soapy taste in their mouth. Don't be dismayed; it is actually a gene in your DNA that creates this phenomenon.
