THIS Green Algae Fights Cancer, Detoxes Radiation, Lowers Cholesterol
Chlorella, similar to Spirulina, is a blue-green algae that fights cancer. Native to Japan and Taiwan, the superfood is rich in phytonutrients. Studies have shown that this plant supports healthy hormonal function in the body. It aids in the body’s detoxification process, promotes cardiovascular health, lowers cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Whether you prefer chlorella in juice form or as supplement, this superfood has the ability to benefit the entire body.
Here are 6 health benefits of chlorella:
Detoxes Heavy Metals From Our Body
There is a good chance that some heavy metals are hiding in our body. Every day we are exposed to heavy metals through the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. Chlorella has the power and ability to wrap itself around toxins in the body such as mercury, lead and uranium. It actually keeps these metals from being reabsorbed into our body.
Supports Our Healthy Immune System
Yonsei University researchers in Seoul, Korea studied, in healthy individuals, immune system response to chlorella supplements. They found that chlorella supports a health immune system response, thanks to its ability to enhance “natural killer” cell activity toward diseases and illness.
Chlorella Detoxes Radiation And Chemotherapy
Chemotherapy and radiation are the most common forms of cancer treatment today. They take a major toll on our body. Chlorella has high levels of chlorophyll, which protects the body against ultraviolet radiation treatments. In the same time it removes the radioactive particles from the body.
Promotes Weight Loss
The Journal of Medicinal Food published a study where researchers found that, “Chlorella intake resulted in great reductions in serum total cholesterol, body fat percentage, and fasting blood glucose levels.” This Alga helps promote weight loss and regulates the hormone levels to promote higher energy levels and aid in a healthy metabolism.
According to a recent medical study, in several different ways Chloerlla fights cancer. First, it strengthens the immune system when we take preemptively. Second, it has the ability to remove toxins and heavy metals from the body to reduce the likelihood of developing cancer. Third, studies have shown that in individuals who were once diagnosed with cancer, Chlorella is able to enhance the action of T cells to fight new abnormal cells.
Chlorella Lowers Cholesterol Levels and Blood Sugar
When researchers studied the effects of chlorella or cholesterol levels and blood sugar, they found that the supplement was able to lower blood glucose levels and cholesterol levels . In the same time, it improves the insulin sensitivity and encourages a healthy balance in our body.
Side Effects And Precautions
Some people may experience side effects from chlorella like:
- swelling of the face or tongue,
- upset stomach,
- sensitivity to sunlight,
- headaches and vertigo.
Individuals allergic to iodine, along with those who have been prescribed Coumadin or Warfarin, before using chlorella should consult a health care professional.
