Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie

The Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie (HMDS) popularized by Anthony William, is a smoothie containing the five heavy metal detoxifiers – coriander, blueberries, spirulina, barley grass juice powder and dulse. They’re optimally balanced to mobilize and eliminate heavy metals in all corners of the body.

Heavy metals cause a wide variety of problems in our bodies. If they’re in the intestines, one almost certainly has digestive problems, if they’re in the head, one may suffer from migraines for example, and if copper is in the liver, this can be the cause of psoriasis, rosacea or eczema. Who wouldn’t be interested in eliminating these culprits?

Let’s take a closer look at the main ingredients

Wild blueberries

Wild blueberries, not to be confused with cultivated blueberries, are known for their exceptionally high content of anthocyanins, the blue plant pigment. Anthocyanins are among nature’s most powerful antioxidants. Wild blueberries can eliminate heavy metals and support the liver in its work.
(Wild blueberries can be bought frozen throughout the year in organic supermarkets.)


This herb has the ability to get to hard to reach places in our bodies. It’s a first-class remedy to rid the body and especially the brain of heavy metals, as it’s said that the living plant cell water of cilantro can cross the blood-brain barrier.

Barley grass juice powder

Barley grass juice powder pulls heavy metals from the spleen, intestines, pancreas and reproductive system and prepares them for elimination with spirulina.


Anthony William recommends Hawaiian spirulina. It’s said to pull and absorb heavy metals from the brain, central nervous system and liver so they can be eliminated.


Dulse algae, also known as ragweed, binds mercury, lead, aluminum, copper, cadmium and nickel. Dulse penetrates deep, hidden places of the digestive tract and intestines, searches for mercury and ensures that it actually leaves the body.

Original recipe


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups wild blueberries
  • 1 cup coriander
  • Juice of 3 oranges
  • 1 teaspoon barley grass juice powder
  • 1 teaspoon Hawaiian spirulina
  • 1 tablespoon dulse algae
  • Water as needed


Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender and enjoy. If you add very little or no water, you can enjoy as a smoothie bowl. 

Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie


The mineral rich, fat-free, specific active ingredients of this smoothie are very effective, detoxifying and healing. The smoothie quantity is relatively large and the smoothie has a rather cooling effect. Depending on your reaction and personal need, it may be wise to start with a smaller amount. The HMDS can be consumed for the period of a cleansing cure or even longer.

Anthony William recommends a fat free morning

Our liver detoxifies mainly in the morning. However, it cannot do this when it has to digest fat. It then has to produce bile and take care of the fat in the blood. Anthony therefore recommends avoiding fats of any kind until 2 pm. He considers it even better to shift fat consumption to dinner and stay fat-free throughout the day.

We have described an optimal morning in “The morning routine according to Anthony William“.
