Chlorella is a single celled green algae and one of the purest green foods known. This algae needs only carbon dioxide, water, sunlight, and a small amount of minerals to reproduce. Chlorella is also one of the best known detoxification agents and can rid the body of many kinds of toxins including heavy metals like mercury. Chlorella does not bind to good minerals that your body needs and only acts on potentially toxic or harmful minerals and free radicals which collect in the body. Chlorella is an effective immune system booster and increases overall immune system response. Chlorella also helps you digest food by providing you with enzymes like pepsin and chlorophyllase ,which promote healthy digestion. Chlorella also boosts growth of beneficial flora in your intestines. This allows you to absorb vitamins and nutrients more fully and make better use of the food that you eat through proper digestion. This in turn will leave you feeling healthier and more energized. Chlorella is a wonderful anti-oxidant and a good source of Beta-Carotene. Another great thing about chlorella is that it actually freshens your breath and actually lessens body odors!
I have been taking Dr. Mercola’s brand of broken cell wall chlorella for about 3 months now and I really think it’s a great supplement. In the last 3 months I have lost nearly 15 pounds and I haven’t gone on a diet or started exercising any more than usual. I am fairly certain that supplementing chlorella into my diet has helped me shed a few extra pounds in addition to promoting a healthier immune system and more energy. I’ve even read on certain websites that chlorella may even have potential as a possible cancer treatment among other diseases, but I haven’t found any hard evidence on that yet.
Chlorella contains large amounts of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll helps you to process more oxygen, and it cleanses your bowels, liver, and blood. It helps regulate blood pressure and promotes growth and repair of body tissues. Chlorophyll also helps eliminate molds and detoxifies the air you breathe in. So another reason you should take broken cell wall chlorella is for its high chlorophyll content.
The reason I keep writing ‘broken cell wall’ chlorella is because chlorella is made up of a hard outer shell, the cell wall, which our bodies have a hard time breaking down to get to the good stuff on the inside. When ingesting chlorella which has not gone through the broken cell wall process the body will only absorb about 20% of the nutrients. Quality chlorella supplements are made with chlorella which has gone through a process which breaks down the cell wall so that the body can better absorb about 80% of the goods. That is why I recommend Dr. Mercola’s brand of broken cell wall chlorella. Dr. Mercola’s products are simply the best available on the market and I have been a total convert to his brand for all of my vitamin and nutrient supplements since discovering it about 2 years ago.
So if you want to energize your health, reduce toxins and heavy metals from your body, promote better digestion of your food, boost your immune system, lose weight, and have better breath, you should consider taking broken cell wall chlorella. I have been very pleased with this product and highly recommend it.
