Health benefits of chlorella

If its impressive nutritional profile is not enough, the healing powers of chlorella should have you searching the grocery aisles for this green superfood!

More and more people are learning about this wonder food which does many different things from anti aging to immune system support.

     The rise of modern society has brought new problems as well as breakthroughs.  Industry pushes forward and our environment becomes more toxic due to this.  Air, food, water, and even psychological pollution is rampant and has a negative effect on our physiology.  Cigarette smoke in a bar contains cadmium, a harmful substance that causes atherosclerosis and high blood pressure.  Heavy metals like lead and arsenic are present in our drinking water.  Studies also show that negative attitudes and stress cause further harm in the body.  Improper metabolism of foods and secretions from bacteria in the colon result in the release of toxins which wreak havoc in the body, causing increased aging internally and externally.  Heavy industrial pesticides on our fruits and vegetables offer a cocktail of cancer causing toxins that beat down the immune system and cause damage to living tissue wherever they are present.  Did you know that 100 years ago hardly any people died from cancer?  Luckily, there are some steps that you can take to prevent cancer and other horrible diseases resulting form our toxic environment, and most important among them is nutrition.  This is where chlorella comes in.
     One of the biggest perks that is known to come with consuming chlorella regularly is anti aging.  The fact that the cell walls of chlorella bind very effectively to toxins and "escort" them out of the body makes this super food an obvious choice for people who want to detoxify their body.  Free radicals and toxins are known to cause inflammation throughout the body when they are present in the blood stream, and it is this systemic inflammation that speeds up aging and gives rise to horrible afflictions such as cancer and heart disease.  Getting rid of these toxins is important, but it is only half the battle.  A nutritious diet can promote immune health and chlorella is an excellent source of immune boosting nourishment.  The production of critical immune components is helped along by consuming chlorella regularly.  T-cells, our body's cancer and virus killers, are crucial to immune function.  Data shows that keeping chlorella in your diet helps the body to produce more T-cells.  B-cells do battle with harmful bacteria in the body and are also produced more effectively with the introduction of chorella in our diet.  Macrophages, the body's cancer busters, also are shown to increase when this super green food is consumed regularly.  Weight problems, ulcers, seizures, asthma, cold, flu, high blood pressure, constipation, chronic fatigue syndrome, add, and ulcers are among a long list of conditions that can be treated and prevented by making chlorella part of your daily intake.

This really is a miracle food and the sooner you start eating it the sooner you will feel amazing!
