Benefits of Chlorella – Increase your energy 10 times.
I said in my last blog that I don’t recommend isolated supplements. Because all minerals and vitamins are working together, and to take only one could be okay if you have a proven deficiency. I prefer whole food, natural food like a so-called superfood.
Because they have all nutrients in the right form, our body recognizes them and can use them. But there are some supplements I recommend taking. But that I will explain in another blog.
Chlorella and Spirulina are whole food, also called a superfood. They are algues but categorized as food. For our health, they have enormous benefits.
What is Chlorella?
Chlorella is microalgae that grow in freshwater. Most are grown in Japan and Taiwan. They are processed and made into supplements. Chlorella has a growth factor, which makes it a superfood. It contains chemicals, including amino acids, peptides, proteins, vitamins, and nucleic acids. They are cultivated, harvested, and processed. The amount of protein, carbohydrates, and fats can vary significantly, depending on Chlorella’s cultured sort. You need to be aware of what you are going to purchase.
Wikipedia says: ” Chlorella is a genus of single-celled green algae belonging to the division Chlorophyta. It contains the green photosynthetic pigments chlorophyll – a and – b in its chloroplast. In ideal conditions, it multiplies rapidly, requiring only carbon dioxide, water, sunlight, and a small number of minerals to reproduce.”
Chlorella is taken from the Greek, meaning green, and the Latin diminutive suffix Ella, meaning small.
It has been considered a source of food and energy because its photosynthetic efficiency can reach 8%, exceeding other highly efficient crops such as sugar cane.
There are several species of Chlorella. Chlorella Vulgaris and pyrenoidosa are the most used in supplements.
Chlorella is a dark-green colored micro-algae that is the world’s richest natural source of chlorophyll.
It has a strong cell wall and needs to be broken before digesting it. Cracked cell wall Chlorella provides a tremendous source of concentrated nutrition.
What are Chlorella’s nutrients?
The benefits of Chlorella is the highest source of chlorophyll. It has 10 times the amount of chlorophyll found in Alfalfa. It has nearly 60% protein,23% carbohydrates, 10% fat. 100 g Chlorella has more protein than 100 g beef. It contains all nine essential amino acids. That makes it a great supply, also for Vegans.
Chlorella is a good source of iron and vitamins, including Vitamin C, B vitamins, K, A. It provides magnesium, zinc, copper, potassium, calcium, antioxidants, but also omega -3s. They are a good source of fiber.
What is Chlorella Growth Factor?
Chlorella contains the CGF( Chlorella Growth Factor) that gives the plant its exceptional reparative abilities. It is produced during photosynthesis, and the cells multiply rapidly into four cells every twenty hours. CGF helps repair damaged cells in humans and slows down the aging process. It contains nucleotide-peptide, glycoprotein, nucleic acid- polysaccharides, and sulfur.
For immunity, it is the most important factor. CGF prevents viruses from growing, increases the body’s resistance against infection, and controls `cancer cells’ growth in our body.
It stimulates interferon production, macrophages, secretion of tumor necrosis factor, and fibroblast activity. Maybe in these times of Covid 19 and all the chronic diseases, the best prevention among others people could do to strengthen their immune system is because CGF has a strong influence on T cells that defeat viruses and cancer.
Macrophages destroy cancer cells, foreign protein, and chemicals. It stimulates the body’s defense system, and that is always the most important army against viruses, bacterial, fungal, and all kinds of mutated cells. Our immune system shield!
Benefits of Chlorella
One of the benefits of Chlorella is really its amount of protein. If you take Chlorella, you actually don’t need to eat so much meat anymore. You can take it to grow muscles. Of course, you need then to do fitness too, like bodybuilding.
Chlorella improves your whole body system. The chlorophyll alkalizes the body; it removes heavy metals in the body. Your skin will look softer and beautiful again because of complete detoxification. Researchers have proven that Chlorella removes heavy metals like mercury, cadmium, nickel, and dioxin. It keeps the body clean.
The fascinating point for me is that it keeps the immune system strong. This is really the most important because we are prone to diseases without a strong defense system.
This is the reason that I strongly recommend a good green juice powder with a good mix of all kinds of whole food, including Chlorella and Spirulina. The increasing production of interferon in the body makes Chlorella one of the most powerful food we can better take daily.
One benefit of Chlorella is lowering cholesterol levels. Taken daily, it improves LDL and triglycerides in people with high blood pressure because of its vitamin B content, fiber, carotenoids, and antioxidants.
So in this manner, it improves your heart and makes heart diseases belonging to the past. Vitamin B 12 is essential for the arteries and blood cell count. Red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to every part of the body.
Clinical studies found out that Chlorella also improves joint health. This is because inflammation is improved, and the stiffness and achiness are reduced. In this study, women suffering from stiffness in the morning were able to move better. So Chlorella might be great for arthritis.
Maybe there are points to think about as well. Most people have no problems taking Chlorella supplements.
It is actually recognized as safe by most authorities. But with everything that is a potent immune modifier, you could have some problems while using Chlorella.
Maybe some people could experience nausea and abdominal discomfort. If you have unhealthy intestines, you might be careful with taking supplements. It is always better first to adapt your diet and try juicing till your body is recovering. Colon cleanses useful when you start with your healing journey.
Chlorella could be too heavy for your stomach in the beginning. If you are sick, you don’t have strong stomach acids. And you might not be able to digest Chlorella or spirulina. It might feel like having a stone in your stomach.
First, take the steps of healing your colon. Otherwise, you will not be able to digest any supplement, even this whole food.
Chlorella stimulates the immune system. If you have immunodeficiency or you are on immune system medications, you might be careful as well. I see healing as a whole process. This means there are more factors to the beginning of your healing journey. See my blogs! Every healing starts with the recovering of the bowels. I will write more about that soon.
Chlorella is a whole food that gives beautiful support to all your bodily processes. It stimulates the Immune system and is a potent modifier of the immune system. With spirulina and other superfoods, adjusting your lifestyle to a healthy diet, moving your body, and reducing stress, you have a key to a long life with a healthy body and mind.
If you are still very ill, suffering from a chronic disease, you better start to heal your body by taking small steps before taking any potent superfood. They could be too strong for your weak body. But they are excellent whole food to help your healing and finally to stay healthy.
To your health,
