Do you want a simple supplement that eliminates heavy metals, is high in protein, kills pathogens, and gives energy? We’ve got it! It is Chlorella.
Chlorella is a genus of single-cell green algae belonging to the phylum chlorophyta. Chlorella’s tough cell wall is almost unbreakable, and it is this durable cell wall that has demonstrated to bind with heavy metals, pesticides, and toxins and carry them safely out of the body. Chlorella reproduces at an astonishing rate, rejuvenating into four new cells every 17-20 hours. This special growth factor which is found in the nucleus of each chlorella cell can safely fuel our own body’s regeneration. Furthermore each chlorella cell is only 2-8 microns wide which is roughly the same size of a blood cell.
Nutritional Power of Chlorella
Chlorella provides the perfect combination of nutrients that your body craves for healing:
- Carotenoids like vitamin A (beta-carotene) and alpha-carotene, and lutein;
- Powerful antioxidant vitamins C, D, E, and even the elusive vitamin K;
- A higher concentration of chlorophyll than any other plant on planet earth. And the super antioxidant, alpha-lipoic acid;
- A whole slew of the brain-healthy, energizing B-vitamins – thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), pyridoxine (B6), niacin, pantothenic acid, folic acid, vitamin B12, biotin, choline;
- Minerals including: phosphorus, calcium, zinc, magnesium,and iron;
- More protein per ounce than steak;
- The favorite fibrous food of probiotic bacteria, inositol;
- Healthy fats like oleic acid, a balanced supply of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids;
- Nucleic acids for building DNA and RNA.
Benefits of Chlorella
Here are some of the benefits of Chlorella:
Get rId of toxins. It binds to all known toxic metals and environmental toxins such as dioxin and others. In a Japanese study, chlorella helped cadmium-poisoning victims get rid of the heavy metal at 7 times the normal rate. Clinical research has also shown chlorella removed mercury from the bowels, blood and cells.
Strengthen the immune system. It boosts immune cell numbers and increases production of powerful immune chemicals like interferon. Nutrition researcher, Randall Merchant, Ph. D. states, “The research I have been conducting at the Medical College of Virginia has convinced me that chlorella is clearly the most powerful natural food you can take daily to support and enhance your immune system function.”
Boost brain power. The brain needs B12, and chlorella supplies us with this important vitamin. In fact, it is one of the few plant sources that has the active form of B12. Clinical research has also shown chlorella helps seniors boost their recall.
Chlorella is good for the heart. Vitamin B12 is also important in heart health, but more than that, Chlorella has been linked to maintaining healthy cholesterol levels and healthy blood pressure levels, too.
Helps reduce pains. In a clinical study involving women suffering from steady morning stiffness and achiness, chlorella helped reduce intensity by 22%. Says study participant, E. Van Rooyen: “I’m able to take really good walks now and I’m traveling better. I’m also not nearly as forgetful as I used to be. I’m sleeping somewhat better and I’m hopeful that I’ll continue to improve daily.”
Helps digestion. Taking 10 grams of chlorella a day has been shown in clinical research to reduce cramps, gas, bloating and diarrhea. Its powerful mix of vitamin D, beta-carotene and chlorophyll can help counter inflammation that can lead to digestive woes. And chlorella also seems to boost the presence of healthy probiotic bacteria in the intestines. It also has shown to improve bowel movements.
Maintains healthy blood sugar. One clinical study demonstrated that not only did chlorella help people maintain healthy blood sugar metabolism– it did so at the genetic level!
Feel Young and Have Energy! By helping the body regenerate quickly and giving it the nourishment that it needs, Chlorella helps one have energy and feel young. Several centenarians take chlorella with great benefit. One 103 year old lady says she dances and bowls and is not on any medication.
Recommended dosage is 1 gram of chlorella 3-4 times a day. At Herbs4You, we carry Prime Chlorella and it has shown good results in muscle-testing and client use.
