A WORD OF CAUTION: When taking cilantro extract, or eating large amounts of cilatro for the purpose of chelation, be sure to pair it with a chelating agent like chlorella. Why? Cilatro can pull metals out of the body; but it is not a strong binder. This means that it can pull the metal out of one place in your body, and release it somewhere else. So, when combining cilatro with chlorella (a strong binder), it can more effectively carry the metal out of the body. Be sure to take a magnesium supplement before starting any serious chelation program.
