What is Chlorella?
Chlorella is a single-celled algae that grows in fresh water. Despite the fact that it is over 2 billion years old, it was not discovered until the late 19th century because it is a microscopic organism. The purest form of chlorella is found in Japan and the people of that nation have benefited from this health food since the 1940s. In fact, the Japanese consume chlorella in the same quantities as Americans take Vitamin C but it contains far more benefits than any multivitamin available.
The rise in popularity of processed food has led to an avalanche of health problems due to the high quantity of saturated fat consumed by the average person. It is middle-aged men and women who are starting to feel the side effects of a life of poor nutritional choices. Allayed to this is the fact that the technological age has increased the pace of the world and in order to keep up, people not only neglect proper food choices, they also have no time for exercise. This leads to a host of medical issues such as heart disease, high blood pressure, constant fatigue and poor digestion amongst other things.
While everyone should endeavor to improve their lifestyle, chlorella is essential because it can help improve the health of people damaged by living a poor lifestyle which is indicative of the modern era. The best thing about chlorella is the fact that it is never too late to start taking it. It gets to work fast and those in the West who have started taking it have reported a dramatic improvement in their general health.
21st century living is a maze of pollution. This causes large amounts of toxins to build up in your body which equates to health problems later on. Chlorella has proven to be extraordinarily effective in detoxifying the body with even heavy doses of toxins completed removed within around three to six months. The indigestible outer shell of chlorella binds with the pesticides and metals in our body. Why is this detoxification so important? Because a body free from toxins means a body that has a strong immune system which keeps you free from illness. Your busy schedule will come crashing to a halt if you get sick so chlorella keeps ailments at bay, allowing you to continue with your active lifestyle.
The high amount of chlorophyll that is contained in natural chlorella is what gives it its name. It is made up of approximately 3,700mg of chlorophyll per 100 grams which is six to ten times what you’ll find in spinach. Perhaps a modern version of Popeye would have preferred chlorella! Chlorophyll helps your body in so many ways. It stimulates detoxifications by the liver and helps purify the blood of toxins. The abundance of chlorophyll in Chlorella also helps the body during radiation treatment for cancer.
Chlorella also contains an immense amount of alpha-carotene and beta-carotene. Alfa-carotene as well as beta-carotene are vital because they are antioxidants. The body needs antioxidants to fight free radicals which are a by-product of pollution as well as appearing when food is broken down in your body. Although antioxidants are not considered as vitamins, they are absolutely vital to a high quality of life. Besides improving your immune system, beta-carotene is also scientifically proven to improve your mood. Chlorella is known as an energy enhancer also which cannot be overlooked in the era of the fifty hour work week, especially when you consider that stress and excess workload causes your body to draw upon more nutrients and antioxidants to get by. Long hours lead to tiredness which leads to mistakes. Regular consumption of chlorella will prevent the lapses in concentration that fatigue causes which in turn improves your work performance.
Poor modern diets cause digestive problems and such discomfort can be unbearable at times. It is difficult to focus on work or enjoy rest with nagging stomach problems. Chlorella has the ability to normalize blood pressure after a short time when used regularly. A 2001 study at the Virginia Commonwealth University stated that “daily supplementation with chlorella may reduce high blood pressure”. Low blood sugar leads to hypoglycemia while high blood pressure leads to heart attacks and strokes, another unfortunate side effect of modern life.
Most people know that vitamins are vital to help your body function healthily and merrily consume multivitamins in the mistaken belief that they are sufficient to ensure good health. Yet these manmade nutritional formulae cannot compete with what is contained in chlorella. There are dozens of vitamins contained in it which are wrapped in amino acids, helping the body to absorb it faster. Multivitamins are merely concentrates and extracts that are combined because they produce a theoretically good balance. Chlorella on the other hand contains vitamins and minerals that are perfectly balanced the way nature intended. This means that they will never accumulate in the body and become toxic.
To get the best effects of chlorella, you should consume it with plenty of water directly before or after a meal or even during it. It is the ideal health food to bring with you to work and it is consumed easily. In the ever increasing pace of modern life you need something that can give you the energy to continue your work whilst ensuring that you don’t suffer from burnout caused by unhealthy eating habits. Those who enjoy balanced diets will feel even better with chlorella while those in need of some inner cleansing will be amazed at what this little green tablet can do.
