Chlorella has been around as a health food for a long time but deserves our attention and needs to be acknowledged all over again for the many benefits it brings.
Chlorella is a single-celled water-grown green algae. It contains more chlorophyll per gram than any other plant in the world.
It is a first-class detoxifying agent capable of removing alcohol from the liver and/or clearing heavy metals and other toxins from the body’s tissues; specifically mercury (which is widely present in the bodies of many people in the form of dental amalgam fillings), cadmium, arsenic, lead, DDT, and PCBs.
Chlorella is one of the highest sources of protein on the planet, 45% (according to some sources 60% pure digestible protein). Animal products like beef, chicken, and fish are only 18-30% protein.
Chlorella is a whole food and a true superfood. It is one of the most heavily researched algae in the world. Chlorella contains vitamins C and E, an array of B vitamins, amino acids, folic acid, beta-carotene, lysine, and iodine. Chlorella is also extremely rich in iron and calcium.
Helps promote clean blood
Chlorella supports the function of the brain and liver, improves digestion and elimination, helps regenerate the body, protects against radiation, relieves inflammation, supports healthy weight loss, enhances the immune system, and overall accelerates the healing process within the body.
While it is almost impossible to take too much Chlorella, it is important to introduce it gradually into your diet in order to allow the body to adapt to its deeply regenerative effects, especially on the digestive and intestinal systems.
Start with ½ teaspoon per day and then slowly increase. Serving size is usually one teaspoon = 2 grams.
