What Are the Health Benefits of Chlorella?

In our last article we learn about what nutrients are in Chlorella. Now we move on to how those nutrients can have a positive impact on your health. After reading this you will never look at algae and call it pond scum again!

How Can Chlorella Detoxify My Body?

In our last article on Chlorella we mentioned that Chlorella has a unique outer layer of polymerized carotenoid. While that is a mouthful to say, it plays an important role in the detoxification role of Chlorella. The polymerized carotenoids actually bind to toxins and carry them out of our body!

Chlorella also has compounds within its cell walls that bind to heavy metals such as cadmium, lead and mercury - and remove these toxic heavy metals from the body. But wait, don't order yet - Chlorella has another trick up its sleeve! Tiny fibers and polysaccharides in chlorella have been shown to bind to insecticides, dioxins and other carcinogens and pull them out of body tissues.

Have Studies Been Done on Chlorella and Detoxification?

Yes! Chlorella, has been extensively studied over the years. In fact, a search on PubMed shows over 3,300 studies on Chlorella! More specifically, a search on just Chlorella and Heavy Metals shows over 300 studies on this specific topic.

Many of the studies involving toxins and heavy metals are done with rats, because it is hard to find human volunteers who want to be pumped full of toxins for a study! Still, the animal research does show that Chlorella can speed the rate at which toxins, pesticides and heavy metals can be removed from the body.

Does Chlorella Pull Healthy Nutrients Out of My Body?

No. One of the more impressive aspects of Chlorella is the fact that it binds to toxins and heavy metals, but not to nutrients. This is a key distinction between all natural Chlorella and many of the so called "Colon Cleanse" supplements on the market. Many of the Colon Cleanse products are not natural and they tend to flush out your whole body. Yes, they may pull toxins out, but they also pull nutrients, minerals and vitamins out of your body. Chlorella on the other hand targets toxins and leaves nutrients in the body.

Chlorella Sounds Great For Detoxification, But How Do I Know if I Have Toxins in my Body?

Easy - just take this simple test...

  1. Have You Ever Breathed?
  2. Have You Ever Eaten Anything?
  3. Have You Ever Had Something to Drink?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, you probably have toxins in your body!

Seriously, there are trace amounts of heavy metals and other toxins in almost everything we eat, drink and breath. Over many years, these trace amounts can build up in the body and cause problems. In extreme amounts toxins can cause MAJOR health problems, but even in small amounts toxins can negatively impact our health.

Here are some signs you may have excess toxins and heavy metals in your body:

  • Feel Tired and Fatigued
  • Tend to Get Sick More Often
  • Reduced Stamina
  • Trouble Recovering From Exercise
  • Increased Feeling of Stress
  • Body Feels Out of Balance
Let's be very clear - we are are NOT doctors and we are NOT trying to diagnose you or provide medical advice. You should always consult with your doctor on any medical issues. Our point is simply that many people may have issues with heavy metals and toxins in the body and not be aware of it since the symptoms are the same for many other health issues.

Are There Any Health Benefits of Chlorella Beyond Detoxification?

YES! We have focused on the detoxification benefits of Chlorella because it is what separates Chlorella from other healthy, nutrient rich foods. However, Chlorella does have plenty of other potential health benefits...

Additional Potential Health Benefits of Chlorella:

  • Boost Your Immune System*
  • Increase Energy and Endurance*
  • Aide in Digestion*
  • Promotes Tissue Growth and Repair*
  • Promotes Fresh Breath
  • Aids in Maintaining Healthy Blood Pressure*
As you can see, Chlorella has plenty of additional health benefits, even if you are not looking for the detoxification benefits.

Did You Know That The Japanese Have Been Enjoying the Benefits of Chlorella for Years?

Chlorella is still not well known in the USA, but it is a completely different story in Japan. In Japan, Chlorella is one of the best selling food supplements and it is completely accepted by the medical community in Japan. We point this out because Chlorella is not a new fad created by some late night infomercial! Chlorella has a strong history of use in Japan and within a few years we expect it to be a mainstay in the USA as well.

Chlorella Sounds Great - How Should I Take it?

Very carefully! Unfortunately, some chlorella is grown in unsafe waters and contains dangerous levels of heavy metals. Sadly ironic that something that remove toxins from our body would be contaminated with toxins itself! On the other hand, Pure, Organic, Fair Trade Certified Broken Cell (or cracked cell) Chlorella is fantastic... but wait a minute, what are we talking about??? Cracked cell? Fair Trade? Sorry, we got a little excited and got ahead of ourselves. In our next article we look at how to find the best source for Chlorella -
