In this issue we’ll cover 5 of the worst heavy metals that you're most likely to have in your body.
You’ll also discover ways you can reduce your toxin risk factors so you can achieve optimal health and vitality.

With tips to reduce exposure and the right plants and minerals, you CAN naturally remove the build up of heavy metals in the body!
