This deep green super food contains a wide variety of vitamins and minerals in their most bioavailable forms, including B-12, beta carotene are provided by Chlorella. It is also extremely rich in unsaturated fatty acids and the highest source of RNA/DNA Nucleic Acids.
Health benefits of Chlorella include high GABA content. GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) is both an amino acid AND a neurotransmitter! Gaba is known to have a calming effect on mood.
With an off-the-charts chlorophyll content (between 5 - 10 times higher than any plant), this green algae is a potent detoxifier of many environmental toxins including heavy metals and dioxin.
Chlorella is a first-class detoxifier. Not only does it detoxify heavy metals, pesticides and environmental toxins - it also detoxifies your body from its own toxic by-products that naturally arise during its own functioning!
NOTE: You can only get health benefits of Chlorella from that which is grown outdoors under the most carefully monitored conditions.
Beware the claims of cheap brands - I can guarantee you they are not as good as they say they are!
On one bulk website, they post 'Certificate of Analysis' that looks very official to the uninitiated, with listings for bacteria count, etc. However, there is NO indication of the name of the lab that did the test - only the name of the company that sells it. No signature by the technician doing the test. (The above info can be faked if they wanted to do that).
The clincher for me was a note in red at top of the 'Certificate of Analysis' (COA). It reads, and I quote, 'NOTE: This is a representational COA that may or may not reflect the current batch in production.' Translation: we don't give any assurance that the information on this certificate of analysis is true!!
Insulin Sensitivity: Results from a study in 2011 suggest that Chlorella taken orally can help to improve insulin sensitivity and has value for people who suffer insulin resistance. (1)
Glucose Regulation:A 2009 study of health benefits of Chlorella Vulgaris indicated a '10% Chlorella intake was more effective for blood glucose regulation than 5% Chlorella intake in rats fed a high fat diet.
Self-Destruction of Cancer Cells: In a 2009 research study, health benefits of Chlorella Vulgaris showed that it triggers apoptosis (self-destruction) of cancer cells in rats in which liver cancer had been induced. The scientists concluded that Chlorella Vulgaris 'has a definite chemopreventive effect by inducing apoptosis…' (3)
Reduce and Prevent High Blood Pressure: Results of another 2009 placebo-controlled, double-blind study of health benefits of Chlorella were that it 'significantly decreased high-normal blood pressure and borderline hypertension…' The study also indicated that Chlorella is a beneficial dietary supplement for prevention of hypertension as well.
