OK, bear with me here friends.
Chlorella is blue green algae and it is also my current favorite superfood. I started reading about it a while back and just decided to go for it. I have a shot every morning. I know, I know. But it really isn’t bad and the benefits outweigh the scary color and interesting taste.
I have included several links here for you to read yourself but here are a few highlights:
- Chlorella benefits the entire body by supporting healthy hormonal function, promoting cardiovascular health, helping to negate the effects of chemotherapy and radiation, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, and aiding in the detoxification of our bodies. It also promotes weight loss and MAKES YOU LOOK YOUNGER –Dr. Axe
- Chlorella is used for preventing cancer, reducing radiation treatment side effects, stimulating the immune system, improving response to flu vaccine, increasing white blood cell counts (especially in people with HIV infection or cancer), preventing colds, protecting the body against toxic metals such as lead and mercury, and slowing the aging process –Web MD
- Helps keep the immune system working in sound condition. May boost brain and heart health. May reduce body aches and pains. Can support the look and health of skin. May support eye health. May ease digestion and bowel movements. Helps keeps your liver healthy. Can support a healthy blood sugar. May support an alert and sharp mind. Promotes joint health. –Sun Chlorella
I order microingredients brand here in powdered form from Amazon. Each morning I mix a teaspoon of chlorella with about two tablespoons of cold pressed coconut water (this stuff is so good on its own too FYI). Shake it up in a clean baby food jar (or whatever you have lying around) and bottoms up! It sort of “sticks” to the sides sometimes so I loosen the remainder up with water and take the rest down the hatch (like a boss).
I used to get sore hands and even have a little bit of a twitch in my hands at times and I think the healing power in chlorella has helped vastly. I also think it has helped clear my skin. And it’s easy! One shot and boom, you’re on your way to better health.
Try it and let me know what you think!
