(Health Secrets) Looking for help with weight loss? Look no further than chlorella. Recent studies have shown that taking chlorella can actually block the production of fat cells and make the ones you already have disappear. And in addition to helping with weight loss, chlorella is a wonder food for controlling diabetes and cholesterol.
Chlorella has many affects on health in addition to help with weight loss. These including detoxification, immune system boosting, and even reversing cancer. These properties led teams of scientists to see what chlorella could do for obesity and weight loss. When they tested it they discovered that chlorella reduces fat accumulation in fat cells, inhibits the development of more fat cells, decreases the number of fat cells by encouraging them to self destruct, and increases enzyme activity in fat cells to enhance energy production. These are potentially huge findings for the weight loss industry!
While these trials were going on, other researchers discovered that chlorella intake results in noticeable reduction in body fat percentages, total serum cholesterol, and fasting blood glucose levels. They found that gene expression profiles varied with chlorella intake, and identified many genes positively affected by consuming chlorella. These included genes related to metabolic enzymes, fat metabolism, glucose uptake, and insulin signaling pathways. The bottom line is that chlorella can determine whether or not genes that take you down the path to obesity, high cholesterol and diabetes are switched on. If they have already been switched on, chlorella can switch them off, to help with weight loss and better help.
What is chlorella?
Chlorella is a tiny single celled blue-green algae that contains a nucleus and an enormous amount of readily available chlorophyll. Chlorella contains all the B vitamins, Vitamins C and E, amino acids, beta-carotene, iron, zinc, macro-minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc and potassium, rare trace minerals, essential fatty acids including GLA, and polysaccharides. One teaspoon of chlorella contains 90 mg of RNA and 8 mg of DNA. Chlorella is virtually a complete food and is one of the most nutritious of all the superfoods.
Like spirulina, a green algae, chlorella contains many nutrients that have not yet been identified. There are thousands of phytochemicals in chlorella. Each of these exists in the perfect synergy that only nature can create. These nutrients are highly digestible and ready for easy assimilation into the body. Even many people with poor digestion are able to digest chlorella. When you consume a complete food that contains virtually all nutrients, including those still awaiting classification, you are assured of getting the maximum each has to offer because nutrients operate synergistically.
Much research into chlorella has documented its ability to reverse degenerative diseases such as all types of cancers, diabetes, liver disorders, high blood pressure, and obesity. Most of this research has been done in the East, with Japan and Korea leading the way.
Chlorella is a perfect choice for body detoxification. Its fibrous outer cell walls bind with heavy metals and pesticides that accumulate in the body, and usher them out. The high content of chlorophyll makes chlorella an ideal cleanser for the blood stream and the elimination channels, insuring that metabolic wastes are carried away from the tissues. Chlorella cleanses the breath and reduces body odor.
Chlorella has been shown to accelerate healing, protect against radiation, help in the treatment of Candida albicans, and relieve arthritis pain. It is effective against anemia and is a stimulator of red blood cells that transport oxygen to the brain, liver and all organs and tissues.
How to use chlorella
Chlorella is available in tablet form and as powder. The strong outer cell walls of chlorella must be broken to make its nutrients accessible. There are several low quality brands of chlorella on the market that have not undergone this process, so be sure to read the supplement facts carefully before you buy. Chlorella that has not had its outer cell walls broken is worthless.
Absolute Greens, a powerful superfoods powder, is one of the best ways to get chlorella into your diet. Chlorella and spirulina are two of the three primary ingredients in Absolute Greens. Chlorella and spirulina are truly a dynamic duo that can’t be beaten by anyone looking for ultimate nutrition that is easily digested and assimilated.
