61% protein which is needed to support organs such as the heart, lungs, brain, liver, kidney and sex organs.
16 Amino Acids including all 8 essential amino acids, the "building blocks" of protein. Including Vitamin B-12
Essential fatty acids (healthy fat) such as Omega 3 and Omega 6, which the body needs to maintain the heart, nervous system and brain. Link : THE FATTY ACIDS OF CHLORELLA.
Minerals – Iron (35% RDA in 3g serving), plus Magnesium and Potassium.
Vitamins – 130% RDA of Vitamin C and 60% RDA of Vitamin A in a 3g serving.
90mg of Chlorophyll per 3g serving – may assist with heavy-metal detox and assist cancer patients by protecting the body from damage caused by ultraviolet radiation.
Chlorella is 60% protein by volume. This is one of the highest levels of protein available in plant form. For this reason chlorella should be supplemented in all vegetarians and vegans to ensure healthy protein levels. To ensure healthy blood sugar levels small amounts of protein should be consumed by everyone between meals. Due to chlorella's high protein content it is an excellent protein "snack" to help maintain healthy blood sugar control.
Chlorella has the highest amounts of chlorophyll of any known plant. Chlorophyll cells are nearly identical to hemoglobin (red blood cells) with one exception: Chlorophyll has a magnesium molecule at that center of it; hemoglobin has an iron molecule at the center of it. This is important because magnesium is essential for all muscular activity, especially heart function. Every time our heart beats, it is utilizing magnesium to do so. Chlorophyll has been used successfully in the treatment of cardiac hypertension. Chlorophyll is a superior cleanser of the bowel, kidneys, liver and bloodstream. Chlorophyll is effective against anemia and stimulates the production of red blood cells in the body. It also helps carry oxygen around the body and to the brain. This is why Chlorella is often referred to as "Brain Food".
Powerful Immune System Stimulant
Macrophages are a type of white blood cell that surround and digest foreign substances in the body. They also produce chemicals responsible for chemical destruction of foreign invaders as well as immune system signaling factors, which provide communication between the different cells of the immune system. They are active against cancer, bacteria, viruses, foreign proteins, and chemicals. If the circulating macrophages are in low numbers, are inactive or have limited functional capacity then the body will not be able to remove these harmful substances from the blood. This will cause the body to have multiple infections, increased toxicity, and increased mutagenic activity. Chlorella stimulates the activity of T-cells and macrophages by increasing interferon levels thus enhancing the immune system's ability to combat foreign invaders whether they are bacteria, viruses, chemicals, foreign proteins, or mutagenic cells. Clinical studies suggest that Chlorella possesses Anti-Tumor Properties and may Reduce Cholesterol and High Blood Pressure. It reduce the percentage of body fat and blood glucose levels. This is highly beneficial to those with Type 2 Diabetes and those who are battling obesity, cancer or heart disease. It will stimulate the growth of probiotic (good bacteria) in the gastrointestinal tract which can assist in the treatment of ulcers, diverticulosis, colitis and Chrohn's disease.
Regeneration of the Bowel
Chlorella increase peristalsis in the bowel. Peristalsis is the muscular contraction of the walls of the intestine that helps carry waste material through the intestines. Chlorella modulates bowel transit time. This means it is as equally beneficial for someone with constipation as it is for someone with diarrhea. In the presence of the Lactobacillus species of bacteria, Chlorella will cause these beneficial bacteria to multiply at four times their normal rate. Chlorophyll is very soothing to an inflamed intestinal tract. This makes chlorella a tremendous benefit to patients suffering from Irritable Bowel as well as Crohns Disease.
Chlorella is comprised of a fibrous, indigestible outer shell (20%) and its inner nutrients (80%). It is the fibrous outer shell that has been proven to bind with heavy metals and other synthetic chemicals that have accumulated in our bodies. Cleansing of the blood and organs will begin immediately, but therapeutic effects are best when Chlorella is taken long term. Chlorella is a whole-food, not an extract or concentrate.link: Induction of Endosymbiosis
A primary force in eukaryotic cell evolution
Chlorella is high in both RNA and DNA, which perform functions in building, and healing the human cell that are only beginning to be understood. The DNA and RNA content of Chlorella is many times higher than sardines, which are considered to be the food source with the second highest amounts of DNA and RNA. Without RNA and DNA, the human cell cannot be properly formed, nor can it divide properly. The DNA and RNA content of Chlorella gives Chlorella its tremendous capabilities in cellular regeneration and repair. Chlorella has been used effectively as a topical treatment for damaged tissue such as ulcerations.
It is important that we maintain a balance body pH of ideally between 7.2-7.4, which is about neutral. Poor dietary decisions, chemical stimulation, structural stress, unresolved emotional issues, and spiritual instability cause our blood to become overly acidic. All diseases start, live and thrive in an acidic environment and do not live well in an alkaline environment. Alkalizing our system becomes our first defense to disease prevention. Chlorella is very alkalizing to our systems. It is the counter-balance to living in today's acidic world.
Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)
Chlorella has the ability to quadruple in quantity every 20-24 hours, which no other plant or substance on earth can do. It is programmed into its very DNA structure to do so. It is the CGF that gives Chlorella its unsurpassed growth capabilities. The exact nature of CGF is still somewhat of a mystery to science. Oriental Medicine describes CGF as a jing enhancer. Jing is a deep essence felt when the kidney meridian qi, yin and/or yang is improved. Jing determines your vitality, longevity, and your ability to resist disease. Everyone has jing that we are born with, or "congenital jing". However, certain foods will nourish us with "acquired jing" thereby magnifying our congenital jing. Chlorella is exactly that type of food. CGF is the component of chlorella that causes it to replicate at an amazing rate, but when consumed by humans this same CGF speeds body repair and healing allowing the body to regenerate at a much faster rate than it would without chlorella supplementation.
I'll tell you a couple things that the guru's on the market are not telling you while trying to sell their product. You need to re-hydrate the chlorella before consumption. Think about how it must pull10x the amount of water out of you to properly hydrate and naturally creating its own cycle. If you eat the tablets as a snack or any dehydrated foods or nuts, you should always plan to drink more H2o. Another thing is the amount of radiation has increased in the atmosphere recently due to a few factors. X-class Solar flares and also the fukushima nuclear power plant. Facts in relations over fukushima.
Due to the environment and the increase of 350x-500x the amount of normal radiation levels present, it is very polite indeed to fuel your body with chlorella. Try adding a tsp here and there to a smoothie or salad. The best thing to do is re-hydrate it in aloe juice or water and consume as necessary or desired. Keep in a glass jar in fridge.
Ingredients (for 1 person):
5 ice cubes
1/2 banana or 1 tbls maca
1 young coconut
1/2 - 1 tsp of siagon cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp chlorella
Preparation:If you like your smoothie more "runny" add raw hemp, sunflower or almond milk.
Blend ice cubes and the coconut in a blender then add the rest of the ingredients and blend again for a few seconds. Drink out of a big glass with a straw and enjoy!
