Chlorella is a green superfood
that contains the highest chlorophyll count of any green foods. It is 48% protein, amino acids (including the 9 essentials), vitamins C, B and E. The holistic community has long used it to help detox the blood and strengthen the immune system. It has long been known by alternative practitioners to help strengthen the bodies immune response. Modern science is just now figuring this out.
The chlorophyll in chlorella has a tough cellulose membrane which binds with lead and other heavy metals to help carry them out of the body. Experiments have also shown that chlorella helps protect the liver from damage from certain harmful chemicals and speeds recovery times of cell damage. Research has also shown it helps reduce bad cholesterol and fats in the liver.
