One of the most important chlorella health benefits is its proven ability to remove any of the toxins that accumulate in our bodies.
Toxins from the food we eat, the water we drink and the air that we breathe. The indigestible cellulose of the cell walls of chlorella attracts and binds with heavy metal poisons. Poisons such as lead, mercury and cadmium, along with pesticides and insecticides are carried out of the body.
Chlorella contains the highest natural source of chlorophyll, the ‘green blood’ of all plant life. This also has a structure very close to our own red blood cells. Therefore the key benefits include:
Chlorella is emerald green, single celled freshwater micro algae. The most important health promoting ingredient of chlorella has a unique substance that scientists have named Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF).
CGF is a complex combination of peptides, carbohydrates and acids, which has the ability to stimulate tissue growth and repair damaged body tissues.
Chlorella is virtually a complete food. This powerful water grown algae contains a very large amount of readily available chlorophyll. It also contains:
Chlorella contains 10 times more chlorophyll than spirulina and has 12 times more iron. Chlorella has shown to contain 5 times the RNA content of canned sardines, a rich source of RNA.
The importance of RNA and DNA in our diets is reflected in the link between the body’s decreasing productions of RNA from the age of about 20. There is also a corresponding decrease in the rates at which worn out cells are replaced by new, healthy cells.
Chlorella is also a superior source of protein. It contains 19 naturally occurring amino acids, including all 8 essentials, making it complete.
The amino acids contained in chlorella make this an excellent source of protein for vegetarians and people who cannot or choose not to eat meat.
