Chlorella is a green algae that is full of chlorophyll. It is also very high in protein and has therefore been used as a food source. I’m not really into eating algae but chlorella peaked my interested when I heard about its detoxifying abilities. It has an ability to bind in your system with lead, mercury, and cadmium. When taken, it draws these heavy metals from the gut and intestinal tract where they tend to accumulate.
But why would you have heavy metals and your system in the first place? Well, I haven’t been eating any lead paint or playing with liquid mercury, but I have been given heavy-duty chemotherapy drugs which leave you with metal in your system. Yuck, I know, not a good thing. There are a lot of horrible things that come out of chemo….this is why I’m here to help you learn how to get rid of them. Chlorella also helps healing from radiation exposure…another wonderful thing I got to go through.
But what if you haven’t had cancer and didn’t go through chemo and radiation? Well, first of all, good for you, but if you have mercury fillings in your teeth, fly on an airplane, have received vaccinations, eat fish, or put gas in your car, you have heavy metals in your body.
Chlorella can also help to reduce high blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and accelerate wound healing. It also enhances your immune system. So, it’s all around good for nearly everyone.
If that isn’t enough good stuff, it also has in it: Vitamin C, E, and all the B’s, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iodine, omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene, and healthy enzymes.
Have I peaked your interest in this super algae? Do some more research and see if it may be something that you want to add to your supplement regime.
