The right blueberries for the Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie

The right blueber­ries for HMDS are cru­cial becau­se only the­se can remo­ve hea­vy metals from the brain and deep from the organs. What do you need to con­sider so that you can achie­ve the opti­mal effect for your smoothie? 
Bowl of wild blueberries

Blueber­ry, blueber­ry, wild blueber­ry, … in Ger­man-spea­king count­ries we use dif­fe­rent words when we talk about the same reci­pe – the hea­vy metal detox smoothie or “HMDS” (from Eng­lish for Hea­vy Metal Detox Smoothie). We con­scious­ly pay atten­ti­on to the dif­fe­rence bet­ween the cul­ti­va­ted blueber­ry and the wild varie­ty. You can also see the exact dif­fe­rence – the for­mer is white on the insi­de and the lat­ter is usual­ly blue on the insi­de.
Wit­hout any fur­ther cri­te­ria, the wild varie­ty is of cour­se the bet­ter, healt­hi­er one. In Euro­pe we pre­do­mi­nant­ly find this varie­ty, which is refer­red to as wild Vac­ci­ni­um myr­til­li­us. In Eng­lish-spea­king count­ries it is cal­led Bil­ber­ry designated.

Howe­ver, it is cru­cial to con­sider an important cri­ter­ion for the “HMDS” and for this we need to take a clo­ser look.

The detoxification property

For the hea­vy metal detox smoothie we need a ber­ry pro­per­ty that cor­re­sponds to the name – it is said to remo­ve the hea­vy metals from the body. It is also important that they remo­ve metals from the who­le body, espe­ci­al­ly also from the brain should be removed!

For that we need the varie­ty Vac­ci­ni­um angusti­fo­li­um. In Eng­lish it is cal­led “Blueber­ry“ and our favo­ri­te aut­hor also means this varie­ty when he talks about the “Wild Blueber­ries”. He points out even more pre­cis­e­ly that the varie­ty Vac­ci­ni­um angusti­fo­li­um, pre­fer­a­b­ly from the Maine/North Ame­ri­ca and Cana­da regi­on, which has the stron­gest metal deto­xi­fy­ing pro­per­ties, the “ulti­ma­te,” as he says. It also has a hig­her anti­oxi­dant con­tent than any other blueber­ry variety.

How you recognize them

The Cana­di­an wild blueber­ry varie­ty Vac­ci­ni­um angusti­fo­li­um gels most stron­gly and this quick­ly makes the HMDS “pud­ding-like”. This pro­per­ty is what binds hea­vy metals in the body. The wild blueber­ries (angusti­fo­li­um) get the hea­vy metals from the organs, the liver and the brain and bind them – so they act as Bin­ders for the metals, which can then be trans­por­ted out.

The confusion

The varie­ty Vac­ci­ni­um myr­til­li­us, which is not exclu­si­ve­ly found in Euro­pe, grows very dif­fer­ent­ly than the varie­ty Vac­ci­ni­um angusti­fo­li­um. It grows in small quan­ti­ties and wide­ly scat­te­red, so that not enough can be har­ve­s­ted to meet demand and it is ques­tionable what exact­ly is in a pack of wild blueber­ries, becau­se only “Bil­ber­ries” is almost impos­si­ble. Nor is it the “Wild Blueber­ry” (angusti­fo­li­um) that our favo­ri­te aut­hor talks about. Alt­hough it also has deto­xi­fy­ing pro­per­ties, it only remo­ves small amounts from the diges­ti­ve tract.

The alternatives

“Bil­ber­ries” (Vac­ci­ni­um myr­til­li­us) as well as all wild ber­ries such as raspber­ries, black­ber­ries, etc. all have heal­ing pro­per­ties and nut­ri­ents such as anti­oxi­dants. As alre­a­dy men­tio­ned, they also remo­ve small amounts of metals from the intesti­nes, but they can­not remo­ve them from the brain, liver and deep within the organs.
The Euro­pean wild blueber­ry. Bil­ber­ry is the­r­e­fo­re not the right varie­ty.
Howe­ver, you don’t neces­s­a­ri­ly need all 5 ingre­di­ents in HMDS (spi­ru­li­na, bar­ley grass juice pow­der, Atlan­tic dul­se, cori­an­der and wild blueber­ry (angusti­fo­li­um)) to achie­ve effec­ti­ve­ness. Wit­hout the wild blueber­ry it con­sists of 4 ingre­di­ents and wit­hout the maxi­mum effec­ti­ve­ness, but what is abso­lut­e­ly fine. If you use black­ber­ries, espe­ci­al­ly wild ones, the­se are also sui­ta­ble as an alter­na­ti­ve, even if they don’t do the same thing as the wild blueber­ry – the Vac­ci­ni­um angusti­fo­li­um.
