Chlorella is a single-celled micro-alga that was one of the first lifeforms on earth.
It contains 19 naturally occurring amino acids. Including all 8 essentials: isoleucinc, leucine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine, making it a superior protein.
Chlorella acts as magnet for toxins
- Chlorella attracts and captures heavy metals, bacteria and radiation, so it´s one of the world´s top detoxifying agent.
- Chlorella has been potentially studied to promote liver health, because of protective abilities that Chlorella has on liver.
- Remove mercury from your tissues in weeks.
- Chlorella supplementation had a significant lowering effect on both high-density and low-density serum cholesterol.
- Great support during chemotherapy. For example, chlorella given to chemotherapy patients in Japan.
- Good Source of Lutein which is extremely important for human eyes (preventing cataracts, eyes macular degeneration).
- It has the highest chlorophyll content amongst all plants known.
When chlorella is taken into your body, its natural action will bind it to lingering heavy metals, chemicals and pesticides found in your digestive tract, which is your body's pathway to your bloodstream where these harmful toxins are delivered and deposited into your body's cells. Chlorella contains a fibrous mucopolysaccharide membrane wall that naturally binds to toxins.
Chlorella is uniquely designed to not bind to the minerals your body naturally needs to function optimally. It does not bind to beneficial minerals like calcium, magnesium, or zinc. It's almost as if chlorella knows which metals belong in your body and which chemicals need to be removed. Supplementing with chlorella is like unleashing a tiny army inside your body to fight the battle of removing toxins from your tissues and ushering them back outside your body where they belong.
Chlorella contains the phytonutrient sporopollenin. Sporopollenin is more effective at binding neurotoxic debris than any other natural substance. It has the ability to detox the body from biotoxins such as tuberculosis, lyme disease, tetanus toxins and mold. It also filters out xenobiotics such as phytates, dioxins, pesticides, and industrial waste. It can bind and eliminate heavy metals like mercury, lead, nickel & aluminum. It also pulls out food preservatives, artificial flavorings & colorings.
Chlorella turns on the natural detoxification switch by increasing intracellular reduced glutathione. Glutathione functions to scavenge free radicals and renew the anti-oxidant properties of vitamin C & E. Low glutathione levels significantly reduce the body's ability to adapt to stress and push toxins out of cells. As glutathione increases the cells begin to remove toxic debris.
Chlorella boost immune system with Growth Factor (CGF)
Chlorella has a unique ability to grow faster than any other plant on earth. In fact, it has been shown to quadruple in quantity every 20 hours, 4 times its size each day. This is due to a substance called chlorella growth factor (CGF) that is programmed into its DNA.
CGF is a concentration of amino acids, glycoproteins, B vitamins and other nutrients. CGF is the most potent natural source of the nucleic acids DNA and RNA. The building blocks of all matter, DNA and RNA are essential for production of proteins, enzymes and energy at the cellular level, stimulating tissue growth and repair and protecting cells against toxic substances.
We benefit from growth factor as it speeds cell regeneration, slows signs of aging, enhances healing, and expedites muscle recovery.
Researchers have found that CGF allows children to mature faster mentally, physically, & emotionally. They consistently grow taller and with a higher IQ than those without CGF. Additionally, the children's social skills were more pronounced and they had significantly less illness. Interestingly, they had near perfect jaw development and had no record of tooth decay.
This sustains our immune system, makes our probiotics grow in our guts and it might increase longevity.
Some experts believe CGF to be the healthiest substance known in nutritional science.
Chlorella and Vegan: vitamin B-12 and Protein
Researchers have long known that a strict vegetarian diet -- one that excludes all animal products -- can lead to vitamin B-12 deficiency, and possibly heart disease.
Therefore, Chlorella MUST be include in every Vegan diet, not only for high protein content, 3 times more protein than beef, chicken or fish, but also for containing natural vitamin B-12 (instead of synthetic injections).
According to standard nutritional tests, the digestive absorption of the protein in Chlorella is x4 times greater than that in beef. In other tests done by American industry it was found that Chlorella has approximately an 85% digestibility rate. This percentage is the highest among protein sources. These are the main factors why we put chlorella in all our nutrition formulas.
So vegans and vegetarians can benefit not only from the detoxification properties of chlorella, but can also enhance their B vitamin complex and protein intake as well through chlorella supplementation.
Chlorella vs Spirulina: what is the difference?
People frequently ask the difference between chlorella and spirulina. Both provide good ways to supplement diets lacking in green leafy vegetables.
Chlorella contains x5 more Chlorophyll vs Spirulina. Nearly all of chlorella and spirulina's benefits can be attributed to their chlorophyll content. Of all the plants and vegetables on earth, chlorella contains the highest amount of chlorophyll - generally 4-5 times the amount of spirulina. Plus, chlorella has both types of chlorophyll - "a" and "b" - while spirulina has only chlorophyll "a".
Chlorella has more balanced protein quality. There are three factors that determine protein quality, i.e. digestibility rate, amino acid score, and bioavailability, making chlorella overall a better protein source.
Bioavailable B-12. Vitamin B-12 is often under-consumed by vegetarians. Spirulina has vitamin B-12, which may be less bioavailable and its activity is irregular and different from that of cyanocobalamin. Chlorella contains a form of vitamin B-12 that can be absorbed and utilized by the body properly.
Good source of Lutein. Lutein is one of the important carotenoids, and is getting increasingly popular. Just 4 grams of chlorella naturally provides 7 milligrams of lutein, while spirulina has none.
Vitamins: both, Chlorella and Spirulina, are almost equally rich in: Proteins, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin C, and Folate.
- Chlorella is richer in: Vitamin A, Niacin, Vitamin B12
- Spirulina is richer in: Vitamin K, Vitamin E, Choline.
Minerals: Chlorella contains more Iron (x4 times), Calcium (x2 times), Magnesium (x2 times), Phosphorus (x6 times), Zink (x10 times);
- while Spirulina contains Potassium, Sodium, Manganese and Selenium that are absent in Chlorella.
|Both, Chlorella and Spirulina, are excellent addition to drinkable meals, detox smoothies or salad dressing.. ))||
Combination: Chlorella and Spirulina are two of nature’s most renowned super food algae. Chlorella is considered to help detoxify the body and repair the immune system while Spirulina is believed to help maintain a balanced diet and boost energy.
