All About Heavy Metals – Sources, Detox, and Nutrition

Heavy Metals – Should You Be Concerned?

Yes, we all are at risk for exposure. However, we shouldn’t freak out.

Heavy metals are all around: in the water, in our food, in our dental fillings, and even on toys!

In this episode of the Empowered Nutrition Podcast, I share all about heavy metals: why to care, what the risks are, how to screen for exposure, and how metals detox works.

I also share the results of my split test of two popular heavy metals tests: Genova Nutrient and Toxic Elements and Vibrant Wellness Heavy Metals.

Finally, I share the specific metals detox protocol that I used after my testing.
