How Long Should I Take Chlorella for Max Benefit?
Life can be complicated and busy. Many feel that with new inventions appearing almost daily, this technology should help make our lives easier. Instead, we find a way to complicate it, or fill the time we save with something new. Time is a precious commodity, and stress is a common ailment.
Fortunately, there’s something we can do to help us feel better with the time we have. Chlorella pyrenoidosa, a green, single-celled freshwater algae, is an amazing up and coming superfood. Many people are familiar with a competitor of chlorella, spirulina. Spirulina is a popular green supplement, but it can’t hold a candle to the nutritional power of chlorella.
Why is chlorella becoming more and more popular? Why are people choosing to include chlorella in their diets and the diets of their families? This superfood is so amazing that many women even choose to take chlorella while pregnant. This super nutritious algae is full of chlorophyll, active Vitamin B12, nucleic acids and more.
One of the most unique things about chlorella that spirulina does not contain, is Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF). Chlorella Growth Factor is composed of nucleic acids found in chlorella. The nucleic acids contain the genetic makeup of chlorella, meaning that CGF can only be found in chlorella. CGF allows chlorella to quadruple its cells every 20-24 hours. Since nucleic acids contain DNA and RNA, consuming chlorella gives our bodies an extra boost by providing nucleic acids to support cellular health.
Another reason people are choosing to take chlorella is that it supports your body’s natural purification or detoxification process. It gently purifies your body and helps transport unwanted materials outside your body.
Many people who have taken chlorella have found that it’s been a great benefit to their overall health and nutrition, and helped them cleanse their body. The biggest thing to realize is that with any body purification, you may experience some side effects in the beginning, although that’s not a bad thing. That just means that chlorella is doing its job and ushering the unwanted materials out of your body.
What are some of chlorella’s purification effects? Some people may experience an upset stomach or other gastrointestinal discomfort. These could manifest as gas, cramping, constipation, nausea, or diarrhea. Others using chlorella have noted fatigue or lethargy.
Again, it’s important to remember that if you’re taking chlorella and you are experiencing some of these effects, it’s not a bad thing. It just means the chlorella is working and helping your body get rid of unwanted materials. Your body is responding to the unwanted materials leaving, and the effects should decrease over time. The best way to take chlorella is to simply start by taking less chlorella and gradually increase the amount you take, until your body adjusts. Make sure to drink plenty of water along the way. *
Taking chlorella can bring a lot of benefit to your body. Having a boost for body purification and increased nucleic acid consumption are just a few of the many benefits available to you if you choose to take chlorella.
