Of all the superfoods out there, chlorella is one of the best. This single celled green algae is becoming an increasingly popular supplement. Chlorella’s popularity comes as people learn more about it’s amazing health benefits.
Besides having protein, chlorophyll, minerals, and essential vitamins, chlorella may have a positive impact on the brain. Our bodies naturally produce (and absorb) free radicals. These free radicals damage our cells, proteins, and DNA. Fortunately, these free radicals have a natural enemy: antioxidants. Antioxidants are able to remove these free radicals from our body, leaving us healthy and happy. Because chlorella is so high in Vitamins A,C, and E, as well as beta-carotene, it can act as a powerful antioxidant. Those nutrients help reduce the number of free radicals your body naturally produces, as well as get rid of other free radicals you’re exposed to.
Besides being an antioxidant, chlorella can help your body detoxify heavy metals and other toxins. With your body cleansed and running at a good performance level, your brain will follow suit. With less toxins, you’re able to think more clearly and live a better life. Harvard Health published an article studying the relationship between the gut and brain. They found that the brain has a direct effect on your stomach and can trigger symptoms based on your current emotions. Fortunately, chlorella is a digestive aid which can help with digestive health, supporting the reduction of bloating, cramps, and irregular bowel movements. It’s also a prebiotic that supports the good bacteria in your stomach, aiding in digestion and other functions.
