Cilantro is an herbal extract from the plant Coriandrum sativum. Used for its detoxifying properties, cilantro helps to remove mercury and other heavy metals from the body in combination with other dietary supplements such as chlorella and other chlorophyll-containing herbs such as nettles and alfalfa. Essentially, these herbs aid in detoxifying by denaturing the toxins, protecting and restoring normal cellular functions while promoting elimination. Yellow dock has also been added to the formula to improve the body’s assimilation of cilantro, which contains rich aromatic qualities that may disturb the digestive process (i.e., nausea, stomach upset, and diarrhea). It is also recommended when detoxifying to protect the liver by using an herb such as milk thistle (silymarin).
