Chlorella is one of the best researched algae in the world. It started after WWII in war-ravaged Japan, where the people were facing a serious nutritional crisis. During this time, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Japanese Government co-sponsored research on growing, harvesting, and processing chlorella on a large scale. The chlorophyll-rich green algae showed tremendous value.Not only is it still one of the most common food supplements used in Japan to this day, often added to tea, soup, milk, juice, noodles, yogurt, and other foods; but there are now thousands of research papers on chlorella from medical institutions, scientific journals, and universities. At one time, NASA even earmarked chlorella to be grown on the international space station. Chlorella is now used by millions of people all over the world.So what are the health benefits of this algae?Aids your body in removing toxins from your system, and supports the immune systemChlorella plays a crucial role in systemic detoxification. It helps your body clear out toxins, but does not remove the essential nutrients. The majority of toxin removal from your body happens through your stool. Chlorella consists of a fibrous, outer shell (20%) with inner nutrients (80%). This fibrous cell wall binds with toxins and helps to clear them. Once the detoxification occurs in your intestines, toxins from other body tissues more readily migrate into your intestines, where they are then easily cleared. Chlorella is a key substance for mercury detoxification. It has been shown to effectively sweep mercury – and other heavy metals – out of the bowel and from the cells, allowing them to be eliminated.A clean bloodstream with an abundance of red blood cells to carry oxygen is necessary for more efficient clearance of metabolic waste from your tissues for further detoxification. Another by-product of this cleansing process is fresher breath.Supports the Immune SystemDetoxification leaves the blood cleaner and with higher oxygen content, which in itself is good news for your natural defences. But Chlorella goes further, delivering a natural anti-oxidant in the form of beta-carotene. This boosts the immune system, while providing added defence against free radicals.Helps You Better Digest Your FoodChlorella promotes healthy digestion in two ways: firstly, it boots the growth of beneficial flora in the intestinal tract. Secondly, it delivers enzymes such as pepsin and chlorophyllase, which help break down food.What Should I Look For In A Chlorella Supplement?Be careful when selecting your Chlorella supplement.
