Chlorella is a great food source and can help to detoxify heavy metals from the system.
Chlorella,The Heavy Metal Detoxifyer
Chlorella is becoming one of the most scientifically researched foods and the recent disasters in Japan has increased its world wide attention. It has shown proven detoxifying effects against radiation as well as more.
This article highlights some of the many benefits of this superfood. It is a food that is known to be a perfect wholefood. It is a complete protein food, which means it has a perfect balance of amino acids. It also contains all the B vitamins, C and E, as well as the major minerals, especially zinc and iron.
Its actions have shown it to
Improve the immune system
Protect against radiation
Aid weight loss and
Reduce chronic disease
There is a book by Dr David Steelblock called “Chlorella Natural Medicinal Algae” which highlights many of the benefits of chlorella.
The number one use of this algae is for detoxification. It was originally used to aid bad breath, skin disorders and heavy metal toxicity. It was noted that 8mg of chlorella a day prevents smokers from suffering from cadmium poisoning. When it was given for 12 days the cadmium excretions in the patients increased 3 times over the baseline. Over 24 days the cadmium in the urine increases to 7 times greater than the baseline.
Not only has it been shown to effective in reducing heavy metals, it has also shown to detoxify people from PCB exposure. People found after taking 4-6mg daily for one year, they felt less tired, they had better digestion and normal bowel movements. Chlordecone which is another hydrocarbon insecticide has also shown to be removed from the body twice as fast, when taking chlorella.
It is known that the thyroid gland is one part of the body that is particularly affected by radiation. This radiation is also found in X-rays, microwaves, mammograms and TSA scans. Radiation has increased over 600% over the last 3 decades in the US, we would not be that far behind.
Radiation sickness gives us symptoms such as lethargy, fatigue, impaired immune function, cataracts and cancer as well as genetic abnormalities.
To heal the body from the effects of radiation the radioactive particles need to bind and then be flushed from the body. Algae's and seaweeds have been shown to be effective in helping to bind these particles and carry them out of the body. This is why is some countries chlorella has become part of the treatment regime as being used as an adjunct supplement during radiation treatment for cancer.
Other chlorella benefits show its use in boosting immune function. A hot water extract of chlorella will stimulate macrophage, interferon, B cell and T cell production. This results in a anti-tumour, anti-bacteria and anti-viral effect.
Chlorella is a food and its high amounts of nutrients make it valuable in helping to clean and fortify the blood. It has outstanding healing abilities as well as increasing the bodies natural healing defenses. It will help us to look younger as well as helping to prevent a whole range of chronic diseases, too many of which to list in this article. A study at the Kyushu University in Japan gave chlorella to patients who showed resistance to healing and who previously were taking conventional medicine including antibiotics. In three out of five cases wounds healed in less than three months, while the more serious cases healing in another 2 months.
It is one of our most alkaline foods and it will balance our pH levels and neutralize the body from the harmful effects of being acidic. .
It is an attractive potential food source because it is high in protein and other essential nutrients; when dried, it is about 45% protein, 20% fat, 20% carbohydrate, 5% fibre, and 10% minerals and vitamins. Mass-production methods are now being used to cultivate it in large artificial circular ponds.
