Chlorella spirulina algae is one of the super stars of the nutritional world. In fact, many label it a ‘super food’. Japanese Chlorella is the #1 supplement in that island nation and apparently NASA agrees since it has been chosen for growth on its space station. The Chlorella supplement has been studies more than any other algae and is consumed daily by approximately five million people.
4 Reasons Why Chlorella Spirulina Is a Green Super Food
The benefits of Chlorella are legion:
It is an extremely potent antioxidant and is a great ally in fighting dangerous free radicals.
Chlorella is loaded with the phytonutrient Chlorophyll which is nicknamed "the blood of plants". Chlorophyll is a powerful alkaline substance, loaded with minerals, that is so much like human blood that it has been used for blood transfusions when blood wasn’t available.
In addition, Chlorella contains a good deal of protein, a protein that contains all 16 of the amino acids that can’t be manufactured by the human body. For this reason, Chlorella is beloved by vegetarians and vegans who wish to escape the many toxins in meat.
Chlorella’s best function, in my opinion, is that it gets removes heavy metals. No matter how hard we try or how "pure" a life we try to live, poisons are inescapable in modern day society and heavy metals are some of the most dangerous of these pollutants.
Chlorella & Heavy Metal Detoxification
Heavy metals are incredibly dangerous to the human body! There is absolutely no way to over-emphasize how much you do not want heavy metals in your body!
We’re exposed to them from many sources including our water supply, old lead pain, exhaust emissions from cars, smoking and second-hand smoke – and especially mercury fillings from our teeth.
Some of the illnesses linked/related to/energized by heavy metals are IBS ( irritable bowel syndrome), Epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, Crohn’s Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Autism.
Researchers have figured out that Chlorella will bind with these metals, carrying them out of the organs of our bodies to deposit them in our blood streams where they will be eliminated through urination and defection.
Other Chlorella Benefits
Your immune system will be stronger if you take Chlorella because it is loaded with Chlorophyll, a substance that promotes T-cell activity and thus destroys viruses and bacteria.
Interferon (IFNs) production is stimulated by Chlorella. Interferon is an incredibly expensive cancer-fighter and natural health producer … if purchased. But you can encourage your body to product it naturally if you use Chlorella Spirulina and this natural defense fights parasites, tumors and viruses.
Yoru digestion will be drastically improved with lots of Chlorophyll-laden Chlorella which is full on enzymes that digest your food efficiently and thus fight against constipation and excess weight.
Chlorella combats infections and overgrowths of molds, etc., in the intestines because it promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria and flora. Most women today have had at least one go-round with Candida and enough Chlorella can deliver a knock-out punch to this miserable condition.
Want to be less ‘stinky’? Chlorella reduces all body odors and freshens the breath. The only thing I know that is better for breath-freshening is fresh, organic parsley.
Beauty foods? Look no further than Chlorella. It cleanses the major organs of the body that are related to glowing, vibrant skin: our blood, our liver and our intestines as already mentioned. And that is another benefit … the younger our organs, the younger our body.
If you have high blood pressure – or low blood pressure, consider Chlorella. It balances blood pressure, rather than acting in either one way or the other.
If you have a wound, know that Chlorella helps human tissue both to grow and repair itself.
How To Ingest Chlorella
There are several ways to get your Chlorella:
1. Take Chlorella in capsules
2. Take Chlorella in small tablet form
3. It comes in powdered form and many recommend adding it to smoothies but I really don’t like this at all! Chlorella has a very strong taste – it tastes of the sea – and if you have a pleasant fruit smoothie you might not like the result.
It’s obvious that Chlorella benefits are varied and numerous but one of the benefits of Chlorella that we haven’t mentioned is that it’s inexpensive. So do yourself a favor and give this green super food a try for at least two months and see if it doesn’t benefit your health. It will.
