If you’re unsure of the benefits that chlorella can bring into your life, take a look at some of the incredible characteristics of chlorella and its ability to support overall health and vitality.
Because chlorella is packed with many different nutrients, it’s become a nutritional superfood.
Chlorella contains protein, bringing more protein per ounce than beef or chicken!
Chlorella also contains all the essential amino acids that your body needs and cannot make on its own.
Chlorella is one of the only plant and natural form of active vitamin B12, the most absorbable type of B12. This is important for all, especially for people who live a vegan lifestyle.
Vitamin C is another one of the many vitamins found within chlorella. Vitamin C can help with mineral absorption and many other things. It is a necessary vitamin to include in your daily diet.
Your body needs iron to produce healthy
red-bloodcells. Fortunately, chlorella is an excellent source of iron and it can bring in a good percentage of your daily need.
Chlorella also contains antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and other vitamins and minerals.
Chlorella also contains chlorella growth factor, or
CGF, a nucleic peptide complex unique to chlorella that helps your body’s natural cellular repair process.
A 2011 study found that chlorella may also help the immune system. The study examined the saliva of men who took chlorella for four weeks compared to men who didn't. The study found an increase of immunoglobulin (an antibody that supports the immune response) in the saliva of the men taking chlorella.
While there is still a lot of research to be done on understanding the true capabilities chlorella has for supporting the immune system, initial findings show positive results and should be explored further.
Supports Normal Cholesterol
There have been several studies that have examined the ability of chlorella to help support normal cholesterol levels. One preliminary open-label study suggests that chlorella may help support your normal cholesterol levels.
Supporting cholesterol levels is another way that chlorella helps support cardiovascular health. Including more chlorella into our diets can help with overall health!
