By itself, chlorella is indigestible. It must be broken down to ensure maximum bioavailability of chlorella's many nutrients, including Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), which promotes tissue growth and repair. Lindberg Chlorella uses advanced ultrasound technology to mechanically break down the cell wall. This delicate preparation is the best way to maximize your body's ability to assimilate all of chlorella's nutritional benefits.Chlorella's Health Benefits
Chlorella is a highly-concentrated source of nutrients. It consists of 60% protein, 11% fat and 20% carbohydrate and contains nearly all of the amino acids essential for human nutrition.
Chlorella is also rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, beta-carotene, thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (B2), pyridoxine (B6), niacin, pantothenic acid, folic acid, vitamin B12, biotin, vitamin C, vitamin E, PABA, choline, vitamin K, lipoic acid, inositol and the minerals calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, iodine and phosphorus.
Chlorella also contains enzymes, essential fatty acids, nucleic acids and phytochemicals.Detoxification and Immune Support
Environmental toxins have become part of everyday life. From the food we eat, to the air we breathe, the water we drink or the products we use, toxins can enter and accumulate in our tissues, compromising our body's own ability to sustain good health and heal itself.
Chlorella has unique detoxifying and immune supporting properties that can defend against many types of toxins. For example, chlorella can help the body remove heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium and lead, and break down industrial toxins such as DDT and PCBs. It helps protect the liver and keep the blood clean, both of which are crucial to a strong natural defense system.
While the exact mechanism of chlorella's immune support remains unclear, studies have shown chlorella increases the production of interferon. Interferon is a powerful immuno-modulator, boosting the number and activities of macrophage cells, which scavenge foreign invaders, including bacteria, viruses, foreign proteins and chemicals.Digestive Support
Chlorella's enzymes can perform a variety of important functions in the body such as digestion. Chlorella provides a beneficial fiber that supports better digestion and promotes the growth of friendly flora in your gut. Chlorella fiber also cleanses the digestive tract, aids digestion, freshens breath and helps those suffering from constipation. Chlorophyll is one of the most useful cleansing nutrients, benefiting both the bowels and blood.Anti-Aging, Growth and Healing Benefits
On the cellular level, physical deterioration and loss of energy is caused by the breakdown of nucleic acids (DNA, RNA). Cells need DNA and RNA in order to function properly and repair damage. While foods such as sardines contain high levels of RNA, chlorella has 17 times more!
Because of its nucleic acid content concentrated in Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), chlorella may optimize growth phases in young people. In adults, these growth-promoting substances stimulate the healing process and the repair of damaged tissue.Alkaline Balance
Because it places no acidic burden on the body as many sodas and junk foods do, chlorella helps restore your body's alkalinity and keep it in optimal pH balance.Dosages
A maintenance dosage for those in good health is 15 tablets (3 grams). With a dosage of 5-7 grams per day, you'll notice changes in digestion, energy and overall health. If it has been determined that heavy metals are present, start with 15-20 grams a day. The detoxification of heavy metals and other chemical toxins can take from 3-6 months, depending on the amount taken. Children can take 1/2 to 1/4 the maintenance dose for adults.
Chlorella is best taken before meals. Since it is a food-grade supplement, it can be used by everyone.
As one of the most nutritious foods on earth, chlorella is unmatched for the many health benefits it provides. With worldwide popularity growing each year, is currently consumed by 7 million people a day in Japan alone. For robust health, consider adding chlorella to your daily regimen too.
Chlorella is a green single-celled microalgae. It has naturally occurring chlorophyll (the green pigment found in plants), plus beta-carotene, mixed carotenoids, vitamin C, iron and protein.
The cell wall in this high quality Chlorella has been broken down mechanically to aid digestibility.
