Chlorella benefits surpass those of ALL other green superfoods. It is a powerful detoxifier, higher in chlorophyll than any other green food and a nutritional cornucopia.
I first learned of this super green food during the years I was struggling with severe mercury toxicity symptoms. Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia were constant problems during that time.
Green foods, especially chlorella, were the only foods that boosted my extremely low energy. In addition, I had severe food allergies and could not tolerate even some very healthy foods such as apples, raw dairy and organic meats. Super green foods were among the very few I could tolerate.
For a few years, my diet was primarily green leafy vegetables and green food supplements. This was one of the ways I survived mercury toxicity - until I found additional ways to detoxify.
Protecting Your Body From Environmental Toxins
The fact that this single-celled fresh water algae has survived for over 2.5 BILLION years attests to its adaptability to a long list of conditions very hostile to life.
The boost in health that we receive from eating it are derived from many of the adaptive mechanisms developed through its very long history.
This single celled algae has thrived despite extreme climate changes, an endless parade of viruses, bacteria and fungi that would attack it, and especially now, toxic metals and many forms of environmental pollution.
For example, its ability to quickly repair its own DNA is attributed to compounds that make up what is called 'Chlorella Vulgaris Extract.'
Another example is that to sustain the very high energy (photosynthisis) needed for powerful and fast adaptive responses, Chlorella is THE richest natural source of chlorophyll of all known edible plants. (It contains 5 - 10 times more chlorophyll than any other plant).
Highly recommended in mercury detoxification programs, Chlorella benefits include detoxifying all other heavy metals, as well.
Powerful Detoxification AND Immune System Support
Toxin binding: The cell wall of Chlorella is a mucopolysaccharide membrane that binds ALL toxic metals and also many toxic chemicals such as dioxin
Glutathione (GSH): Did you know that Chlorella manufactures its own Glutathione to protect itself from some of the oxidative processes that naturally arise during the process of photosynthesis (plant energy production)?
Glutathione is the most important detoxification enzyme for humans. As a prolific producer of Glutathione for its own survival, Chlorella benefits us when we eat it, by supplying Glutathione to aid OUR detoxification process.
Glutathione depletion: Liver stores get used up in the process of detoxifying alcohol, drugs, nicotine, environmental toxins, etc. As we get older, we tend to have less Glutathione. In turn, a lack of this free radical fighter leads to accelerated aging!
Taking Chlorella on a regular basis is one way to maintain healthy levels of Glutathione, helping us stay younger.
Lutein: It was a surprise to learn that Chlorella benefits include a more generous amount of Lutein (also known as Xanthophyll) than any other edible plant! Lutein is the carotenoid most responsible for the health of our eyes.
Sporopollenin: This is a carotenoid compound which is not readily found in plants. In fact only the cell wall of Chorella Pyrenoidosa contains it. Sporopollenin is a powerful accelerator in the process of detoxifying chemicals such as PCB's and dioxin.
Chlorellan: Also hard to find in the plant world. This compound is an antibiotic which will NOT harm probiotics and other beneficial bacteria in our bodies.
Super-Nutrition and Digestive Aid!
This super green food contains 50 - 60% amino acid content, B6, the easily absorbed methylcobolamin form of B12, minerals, chlorophyll, beta carotene and many other carotenoids, lutein, etc.
Chlorella benefits include an abundance of magnesium
Magnesium deficiency is widespread, especially in the United States. Agricultural soils, especially in developed countries, have become woefully deficient in magnesium.
Even whole foods grown on such soils are low in magnesium. This is because commercial fertilizers typically contain NO magnesium. Many years of growing crops on such soils have been severely depleted of magnesium.
This super green food is also a great help in the restoration of healthy bowel flora, and a wonderful bulking agent that improves elimination.
Beware of Inferior Products!
Not only do inferior products not grown under ideal conditions lack benefits described above; they can also make you sick!
You see, Chlorella's powerful toxin binding capability makes it absorb any impurities from the water it is grown in. If these toxins are strong enough, you may find yourself wishing you never took that brand of Chlorella. This happened to me once when I made the mistake of buying a health store brand!
Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, internationally known mercury detox and Lyme disease expert says of Chlorella, 'Be aware that there are huge differences in quality.'
There is only ONE brand of Chlorella Dr. Klinghardt recommends! For more information on how to obtain it, click here
