How Chlorella can improve your health

  When you take a close look at the world today, you'll realise that the air you breathe and the water you drink potentially contain chemicals that you are not always aware of. Modern mass farming methods mean that meat, and fish too, have been fed diets which are not natural for them, and this carries on down the food chain to you! Unless you are eating organic fruits and vegetables you may be absorbing harmful pesticides that cannot always be washed off. Therefore, despite trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle, it is quite possible that your body is contaminated with stored toxins and to rid yourself of these, you need some help. Well, now it is possible for you to take just one superfood for ultimate detoxification, maximum energy, and many, many more health benefits. That superfood is called Chlorella.

What is Chlorella?

Chlorella, which means “small green leaf,” is a single-celled, freshwater blue-green algae similar to Spirulina. It is about the size of a red blood cell, but contains lots of vital ingredients:
  • protein
  • glycoproteins
  • carotenoids (beta carotene, lutein, astaxanthin, and others)
  • phytonutrients
  • antioxidants (vitamins C and E)
  • GLA, and other essential fatty acids
  • calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc
  • other rare trace minerals
  • all essential amino acids
  • complete vitamin B complex and vitamin B12
  • vitamins A, D, and K
  • several enzymes, including pepsin
  • fibre
  • sporopollenin
  • chlorophyll
Since the 1940s, Chlorella has been researched for its amazingly high level of nutrition and reproduction. Chlorella grows faster than any other plant on earth (it quadruples itself every 20 hours) and is the most potent source of chlorophyll known to man. However, the power of Chlorella seems to be attributed to the Chlorella growth factor, commonly called CGF. CGF is a combination of glycoproteins, amino acids, B vitamins, and other nutrients that work together to boost tissue growth, wound healing, and DNA repair.

So how does Chlorella work?

It is the CGF along with sporopollenin that allows Chlorella to capture free radicals, mercury, cadmium, lead, DDT, PCBs, food preservatives, artificial flavourings and colourings, and other toxins in the intestines and escort them out. Once those toxins are removed, other toxins stored in the body tissues and fat naturally migrate into the intestine and Chlorella starts to escort them out too. This process repeats itself until all toxins are removed. At that time, any toxins you consume from food, water, or air are automatically eliminated and never stored. This powerful process of detoxification produces a plethora of undeniable health benefits:
  • increased energy
  • better digestion
  • enhanced concentration
  • inflammation control
  • reduced arthritis symptoms
  • regulated good and bad cholesterol levels
  • strengthened immune system
  • balanced estrogen levels
  • cleansed intestines, liver, and blood
  • stabilized blood sugar levels
  • regulated insulin
  • normalised blood pressure
  • increased oxygen levels
  • reduced body fat
  • increased weight loss
  • improved thyroid function
  • regulated calcium levels
  • inhibited viral replication
  • UV radiation protection
  • defense against cancer and autoimmune disease

Choosing and taking Chlorella

When choosing your Chlorella supplement you must make sure that its naturally indigestible cell wall has been broken under conditions without light or heat. That will ensure its nutrients have not been destroyed, but are available for capturing toxins in your intestine. Definitely give this daily detoxifier a chance by taking it with food every day.  Come in to Mr Vitamins and 'Ask a Naturopath' about available supplements as well as how Chlorella can help you.
