To detoxify your body
Chlorella can neutralize and eliminate some of the contaminating heavy metals and strengthen the immune system, and GLA, which enhances prostaglandin production and possesses anti-inflammatory abilities. ①
Chlorella has the unique property of picking up toxic substances and eliminating them out of the body. Chlorella cell walls absorb and hang onto lead. (Report by Drs. D. Lorch and A. Weber)
A powerful defense against cancer
In Prescription for Dietary Wellness, Phyllis A. Balch explains, "Chlorella…contains the highest chlorophyll level per ounce of any plant, as well as protein (nearly 58 percent), carbohydrates, all of the B vitamins, vitamins C and E, amino acids (including all nine essential ones), enzymes and rare trace minerals." Due to its dense and nutrient-rich nature, chlorella offers your body a two-fold attack against cancer.
Both chlorella and spirulina can actually reverse cancer in the human body. Both of these superfoods have been clinically shown to demonstrate stunning preventive and curative properties when it comes to all sorts of cancers.②
An effective nerve damage rebuilder
A phytochemical found in chlorella can actually rebuild nerve damage in the brain and nervous system. That's why chlorella is being used in the recovery of patients with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.③
Improve your digestive system, including decreasing constipation
People find that chlorella helps to freshen breath. Stool smell is also improved and chlorophyll has been attributed to relieving occasional constipation. Chlorella supplements can speed up the rate of cleansing of the bowel, bloodstream and liver.④
Promote a healthy pH balance
It is important that we maintain a balance body pH of ideally about 7.2-7.4, which is about neutral. However, a poor diet of junk food, fast food, overcooked, and processed foods, especially soft drinks, which have a pH of 2.7, can affect the body's pH. The above foods are several thousand times more acidic than our bodies.
Chlorella can help promote a healthy pH level in your body.
