One of the secret weapons in our Super Greens formula is Chlorella — a green algae that has been regarded as a promising food source for half a century due to its multitude of nutrients and its rich supply of chlorophyll.
Originally, chlorella was first noticed as a possible solution for world hunger, and the more scientists researched its benefits, the more nutritional value they discovered.
Chlorella is the ideal green vegetable
Considering chlorella’s high nutrient density score, it’s obvious why this food is considered by many researchers to be among the top ten health foods globally. The National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, report that nutrient-dense foods are those that provide a high amount of nutrients yet have relatively few calories.
Chlorella is a green vegetable, offering a great many nutrients needed for both disease prevention and recovery from illness. While chlorella is often touted as an energy-booster that supports fat loss and detoxification from heavy metals, it’s also a super food that rivals the most popular green vegetables.
Chlorella features more nutrient value, gram-for-gram than kale, spinach and broccoli.
In chlorella’s nutritional complex are: vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, iron, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, potassium, biotin, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, other trace minerals and vitamins, and the nucleic acids RNA and DNA. Chlorella contains more protein per ounce than a serving of steak.
Chlorella supports detoxification
Studies have shown that chlorella benefits the entire body by supporting healthy hormonal function, promoting cardiovascular health, helping to negate the effects of chemotherapy and radiation, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, and aiding in the detoxification of our bodies.
In our modern era, there are valid concerns about toxicity from heavy metals that enter our bodies from pollution, processed foods, and other sources. Chlorophyll has been studied as a natural detoxification food that helps remove mercury.
Chlorella improves skin health
Chlorella is also effective at giving you younger looking skin because it naturally increases levels of vitamin A, vitamin C and glutathione in your body which eliminates free-radicals and protects your cells.
Chlorella fights cancer
Chlorella strengthens the immune system and deploys natural killer cells (NK) to attack and nullify cancer cells.(1) And, because chlorella removes heavy metals and toxins from the body, regular consumers of the algae are less likely to develop environmentally based cancers. Studies have shown that chlorella enhances the action of T cells in cancer patients to fight new abnormal cells.
