Chlorella: Superfood with Incredible Detoxing Capabilities

Chlorella seems to be an undervalued superfood, offering a lot of nutrition in very small servings. But chlorella offers even more than high nutritional value per gram. It is a powerful detoxification source. It’s able to detox heavy metals mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum, and barium and eliminate other ubiquitous pollutants, such as PCBs and other dioxides. Further, it detoxes without disturbing the necessary mineral elements of magnesium, potassium, iodine, and other important minerals.

We are heavily besieged by toxic pollutants from our food, water, from the air we breathe, pharmaceuticals, vaccines, and the most prevalent toxic medical mercury source of all – dental amalgams.

As long as you chew food with those mercury amalgams in your mouth, you’re releasing mercury vapors into your body. But it takes a special type of dentist to remove them safely – a biological or holistic dentist.

Regardless of when or if you’re able to have these fillings removed properly (not to mention you will still be exposed to other toxins), it would be wise to incorporate a daily consumption of chlorella, which also chelates (binds and removes) mercury and other heavy metals.

The Chlorella Cell Wall Issue

Around the mid-twentieth century, chlorella was looked into as a food to solve problems of international food shortages and malnutrition. As a single cell algae, chorella is easy to produce in natural and artificial fresh water pools.

Each tiny chlorella algae cell contains all 21 amino acids to provide a complete protein that is more assimilable than complete meat proteins. And there are many other nutrients compacted into those tiny cells.

It resembles the human blood cell except for that fact that chlorophyl is contained in it’s nucleus instead of iron. And the source of energy for chlorophyl is the planetary source of energy itself – sunlight.

Because chlorella has existed as-is for over a million years, many consider this survival factor the reason for chlorella growth factor (CGF). CGF is the mysterious, mechanically unknown factor that has been observed to promote cellular growth. Perhaps this is part of why the health benefits of chlorella are so great.

However, chlorella’s cell walls were too tough to properly and fully digest, and that ended the mid-twentieth century’s look at chlorella for solving world hunger. But eventually, more than one process of cracking those cell walls was devised to make digesting the algae possible while retaining the walls and the enclosed nutrients.

Keeping those cell walls around even after cracking them for digestibility is necessary because it’s chlorella’s cell walls that bind to toxins in your body in order to eliminate them. This is why you see chlorella products promoted with cracked or broken cell walls.

Finding the Right Chlorella

There have been many clinical lab animal and human tests confirming chlorella‘s detox and liver restoration value with both Chlorella vulgaris (CV) and Chlorella pyrenoidosa (CP). Yet there are those who argue that CP is superior to CV. That appears to be a moot point when considering budgetary allowances.

Adding to this perhaps unnecessary controversy are the more valid issues of chlorella’s source and which of the four methods of cracking the cell walls maintains chlorella’s nutritional and detoxification properties the best.

It appears that Taiwan is a good source, and most of Japan’s sources are actually much closer to Taiwan than Fukushima. Taiwan is actually in the opposite direction of Fukushima’s radiated ocean and air current drifts. So not to worry about Japan sources. South Korea also seems to be a good source. There is a good deal of suspicion surrounding China as a source for several supplements, including chlorella.

But the cell cracking technique, which is rarely disclosed on chlorella packages, is an issue that I will pass to the Health Gladiator with his extensive research for the right chlorella.

    What are the side effects of munching on sea-algae? Cite medical studies-cite any studies!This Blog has become a resting place for any idiot with a computer. It promotes Paranoia, at a time when we need to pull together. This “stuff” comes from people obsessed with the idea that the government seeks to do them harm-which is stupid because then there will be no one to govern. It puts out ludicrous ideas that are sometimes dangerous, but does so with a medical disclaimer-as though that will stop the F.D.A. from coming after them. The A.M.A. will also look at this as practicing medicine without a license! Instead of qualified people-it uses so called experts in the unknown who pull ideas out of their ears-who seek higher consciousness,and should be satisfied with the small amount of thinking that they do.

    Why would Clorophyl in the body be a good thing? In needs sunlight to convert into energy and there is no sunlight in the body.

  3. Larry Peterson says:

    Thanks Dan-you proved my point about Paranoia and now you wonder about the damages of Chlorophyll(at least spell it right!) You have made the list>all those years eating veggies now you think it my be a plot? You guys make my day!
