Chlorella: Another Great Algae

I mentioned that I take Spirulina which is blue-green algae.  Well I also take a green algae, Chlorella. When the strong cell wall is broken it becomes one of the most nutritious and easily digestible food and with the highest level of chlorophyll. It is an estimated 45% protein, 20% fat, 20% carbohydrate, 5% fiber, and 10% minerals and vitamins. Chlorella contains vitamin B-12, B-1, B-2, C, K, folic acid,  potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus and, in small levels, zinc, manganese, and iodine.  It contains complete vitamins and it great for vegetarians and vegans who often lack vitamin B-12. 
Now let’s look at what that means for your body.  Chlorophyll is plants hemoglobin and helps our hemoglobin to absorb and move oxygen throughout the blood.  Another benefit is of Chlorella are its strong fibers help absorb many containments, including heavy metals, and pull them out of your body.    This is why you find it in cleansing or metal removing products.  This is also why I choose organic; to reduce potential containments I am exposed to.  Actually even Dr. Oz had a segment on the power of Chlorella to remove mercury and decrease fatigue.  I included the link below if you are interested. There are so many more benefits I will just list them
1.       Helps to reduce bad breath

3.       Helps reduce side effect from radiations
4.       Helps reduce risk of developing cancer and helps reduce the spread of cancer

I could go on but I think you get the picture and you are probably interested in trying Chlorella.  You can find it easily on the web or in a nutrition store.  Look for organic, broken cell wall, non-frozen, non-pasteurized Chlorella.  It comes in powder, tablet and capsules so you can choose what works best for you.
