Binds to Heavy Metals, Aiding Detox
In animals, algae, including chlorella, has been found to weaken the heavy metal toxicity of the liver, brain and kidneys
Enhance Immune System
Acts as an Antioxidant
Chlorella contains several compounds that are considered antioxidants including chlorophyll, vitamin C, beta-carotene, lycopene and lutein. These antioxidants can help fight many chronic diseases. Some of these antioxidants seem to reduce the production of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which drive many of the complications of diabetes.
Promote Heart and Kidney Health
In one study, people with mildly high blood pressure took four grams of chlorella daily for 12 weeks.
By the end, these people had lower blood pressure readings than participants who took the placebo
Another small study in healthy men showed that taking chlorella supplements was linked to less stiffness of the arteries, a factor that affects blood pressure
Improve Blood Sugar Levels
One study found that taking chlorella for 12 weeks lowered fasting blood sugar levels in both healthy individuals and those at high risk of lifestyle-related diseases. Other studies have shown that supplementing with chlorella improves blood sugar control and increases insulin sensitivity in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
May Enhance Aerobic Endurance
One study has looked at chlorella's effect on aerobic endurance, it showed a positive effect.
Researchers gave a group of young adults six grams of chlorella or a placebo daily for four weeks.
At the end of the study, the chlorella group showed a significantly improved ability to saturate their lungs with oxygen, which is a measure of endurance. The placebo group did not experience any changes in endurance.
Always know the source: The chlorella we use is from the Tawu Mountains in Southern Taiwan, grown outside, in the sun, in mineral rich waters, surrounded by rainforest. Meaning it is one of the most pure sources.
