Chlorella- One of the Top Ten Detoxifying Superfoods

Reading time 2 min.

Green juice has been popular for several years and has helped a lot of people. Some people swear by wheatgrass, others by celery juice, and still others by the power of green and blue algae. For detoxing, chlorella is one of the most potent natural detoxifiers. Here is why you should take chlorella, what to watch out for, and which kind to buy.

What Kind of Chlorella to Buy

Chlorella is a blue-green alga with a hard cell wall. For this reason, you have to take it as a supplement. Different supplement producers do different techniques to make the chlorella bio-available. Some producers ferment the chlorella, which prevents the chlorella from the benefits of sunlight. Others produce cracked cell chlorella, and pulverized chlorella, which is the most bioavailable. Also, look for the quality seal that shows a third party has tested it. You can take it in capsules, a liquid form, or powder form in a smoothie. Adding chlorella to a smoothie. You can also consume it with other algae like spirulina, for even more benefits. It is also safe for pets so you can stir some in their nightly dinner.

Benefits of Chlorella

Chlorella has numerous benefits. It is known for its tremendous detoxing abilities and even reported to fight cancer. It is also ranked as one of the top ten superfoods. It is at least fifty percent protein, has antioxidants, omega 3s, vitamin B12, vitamin C, iron, and more. Here are six specific ways chlorella can make you healthier.

Skin- When we age, our skin is often the first indicator that we are no longer youthful. Chlorella is an excellent antioxidant and anti-aging agent. It’s also fast-acting, so if you want to see improved skin in a couple of weeks, start taking chlorella daily.

Weight Loss- Harmful chemicals in the environment, called neurotoxins, assault the endocrine system every day. The endocrine system controls the metabolism and the release of hormones. When these are off, weight-gain is common. People who take chlorella lose weight because chlorella supports the endocrine system.

Blood Pressure- High blood pressure is behind some of the most common causes of death: strokes, heart attacks, and kidney disease. Medications that your doctor may prescribe can have dangerous side effects. One study proved that taking 4.5 grams of chlorella per day can reduce your blood pressure. This fact may be a result of the levels of omega 3, potassium, arginine, and calcium that chlorella contains.

Immune System- Chlorella triggers the production of white blood cells so the immune system can fight off more invaders.

Cancer- Chlorella helps fight cancer in two ways. Firstly, it enhances your immune system, so you’re less susceptible to diseases and better able to fight them. Our bodies are always killing off cancer cells, and if our immune system is weak, the cancer cells are allowed to reproduce. Secondly, if you are doing radiation or chemotherapy, chlorella lessens the side effects of those treatments.

Heavy Metal Detox- Most everyone has a build-up of heavy metals due to prolonged exposure in the environment. These metals are toxic and can wreak havoc in our bodies. The substance in the sturdy walls of the chlorella cell removes arsenic, nickel, aluminum, lead, cadmium, and other harmful metals from the body.

Possible Side Effects

The side effects of taking chlorella are few. As with most new supplements, they can cause digestive trouble if you take too much at the beginning. Start with smaller doses than the bottle recommends so you can avoid getting stomach cramps or diarrhea. Pay attention to how your body feels and reacts, then gradually work up to the recommended dosage.

Chlorella is an impressive superfood and can help with numerous health issues. No matter what your health goals are for the new year, adding chlorella to your diet will help. Start putting chlorella in your morning smoothie and witness for yourself the amazing benefits.
