Heavy metals are components of the earth's crust and are naturally present in the soil, water and atmosphere in small quantities.

Humans can be exposed to so-called heavy metals through the environment (e.g. by inhalation) or through the ingestion of food.
Their accumulation in the human body can cause, over time, important harmful effects as they interfere with normal cellular metabolism, hindering the proper performance of vital functions.

To help the body eliminate toxins and heavy metals, it may be useful to apply some good dietary rules.

⁃ Use spices rich in antioxidant principles
⁃ Consume extra virgin olive oil as it contains antioxidant and purifying substances
