Chlorella: The Latest Health Insights on One of Nature's Favorite Detoxifiers

Posted April 29, 2007. There have been 0 comments

In today's world everyone knows that we encounter toxins from the outside world. But have you given much thought to the fact that your body also makes its own toxins?

Found in our food, water supplies, dental products and environment we are literally bombarded with externalheavy metals, pesticides and fertilizers. Internal toxins can come from infectious pathogens like fungi candida. For example, the pathogenic bacteria, fungus and viruses in your gut also create internal toxins that are produced right inside your body. Sugar and processed foods create internal toxins and can eventually lead to severe gut inflammation, colitis, Chron's and even cancer.

These harmful internal and external toxins wreak havoc on our bodies and immunity, and the buildup of toxins can contribute to illness and disease.

Chlorella is an algae that keeps fresh water ecosystems clean and healthy. Chlorella is one of nature's super foods and can detoxify your body and balance your inner ecosystem too!

Do You Need a New Liver?

Your liver acts as a filter for all of the toxins you encounter every day, so it's no wonder that chronic liver disease is one of the top 10 causes of death in the U.S., and not just among people who drink alcohol. 1

In response to the growing need for liver transplants, scientists at Newcastle University in England recently grew the first tiny human liver! 2 They plan to use this groundbreaking technology to create normal sized livers that can be used for transplants, dialysis, and for lab testing.

While this advancement is promising for the future, a new liver will most likely cost you a small fortune. Also would you really want to undergo surgery? The anesthesia will only harm your nice new liver and the antibiotics will probably cause your fungal infection to become more acute. It makes more sense to keep our livers healthy in the first place, and nature has provided us with a natural solution.

Chorella: Nature's Detoxifier

You may have noticed that some freshwater ponds grow algae, but have you ever wondered why it is there? Algae naturally cleans the water to maintain a healthy ecosystem for the plants and animals that call the pond their home.

Chlorella is a type of algae that grows in fresh water and is the most potent source of cleansing chlorophyll in the world.

The chlorophyll in chlorella can cleanse and rebalance your body just like it cleans pond water.

What's So Special about Chlorella?

Chorella also contains a variety of other essential nutrients that make it one of the most beneficial foods on the planet.

Chlorella contains these health-enhancing nutrients that directly impact your vitality:

  • Complete protein. Chlorella contains 18 of 22 existing amino acids, including the eight essential amino acids.
  • Essential fatty acids (EFAs). Chlorella contains EFA's that protect your heart and regulate your metabolism.
  • Chlorophyll. Chlorella is the most abundant source of chlorophyll. It has been shown to be effective in detoxifying your blood and provides magnesium for your heart function.
  • Fiber. Chlorella's fibrous cell walls are thought to bind to heavy metals and pesticides so that they can be eliminated from your body. 3
  • Antioxidants. Antioxidants in chlorella can neutralize free radicals (free radicals can cause cancer and aging).
  • Chlorella Growth Factor. CGF, a mysterious property of chlorella, has been shown to stimulate healthy cell growth and turnover at rapid rates, which can slow aging and encourage healing. 4
  • Carotenoids. Carotenoids keep cholesterol from oxidizing and clogging arteries.
  • Magnesium. Magnesium is essential for nearly every process in your body, including regulating blood pressure and blood sugar.

Chlorella is truly one of nature's superfoods.

Here are some great health reasons to include chlorella in your diet: 5

  • Controls body weight
  • Eases symptoms of fibromyalgia

Spirulina: The Anti-Inflammatory Algae

Loaded with chlorophyll and chlorella, spirulina is uniquely beneficial because of its phytonutrients that fight infections and boost immunity. A recent study at UC Davis indicates that spirulina may be an effective treatment for infections, allergies and even cancer. 6

Here at Body Ecology, we use only fermented spirulina because fermentation ensures that your body will absorb all of spirulina's nutrients efficiently.
