Chlorella, The Most Powerful Whole Food Detoxifier
Chlorella is one of the most powerful detoxifying agents on the planet, capable of removing heavy metals and radiation from the body. This is due to it’s unique cell wall structure, which is made of complex polysaccharides. These polysaccharides are also known to stimulate interferon production and anti-tumor activity.
It is the fibrous outer cell wall which has been proven to bind to stored toxins–so they can be easily excreted from the body via the lymphatic system and colon. This is made possible because the fibrous outer layer, which is indigestible by the human gut, acts like a magnet, collecting unwanted toxins which would otherwise accumulate in the body.
Not only is the outer cell wall of significant value to the detoxification process, but the nutrients that lie within the cell wall are also extremely beneficial. Because this outer layer cannot be broken down, it is important to choose “broken” cell wall chlorella or “cracked” cell wall chlorella for consumption. This is to ensure that the body has access to the vital nutrients held inside of the cell wall.
This unique micro-algae contains an astounding profile of nutritional elements: vitamins, macrominerals, trace minerals, essential fatty acids, complete protein, nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), chlorophyll, and a vast spectrum of phytochemicals and antioxidants. It is one of the most nutrient dense plants grown on the planet.
Chlorella is a one-cell blue-green algae that is highly nutritive as a food and also stimulates the immune system. It increases macrophage activity and has shown antitumor effects. Chlorophyll is a substance found in chlorella that stimulates interferon production. There are several papers on the prevention and/or inhibition of cancer by using chlorella as well as documentation of its DNA repair mechanism.Of all the super green foods, chlorella is the one that impresses me the most. ~Herbal Medicine, Healing & Cancer by Donald R.

Chlorella contains every nutrient required by the human body. In fact, you could survive on chlorella alone–and many cultures throughout the world have–during times of famine and disaster. Chlorella contains more chlorophyll than ANY other plant on the earth. Chlorophyll is what gives green plants their green color. Spinach and broccoli are have only a fraction of the chlorophyll that chlorella has. Chlorophyll is a vital nutrient which is required for healthy cell replication. Most processed foods are completely void of chlorophyll. Unfortunately, even our fresh produce is often severely lacking in concentrated minerals and nutrients due to soil depletion and poor farming techniques, making chlorella a wonderful whole food that can replenish the body.
Chlorella is a complete plant based protein. Animal protein contains about 26% protein–whereas chlorella contains over 65% complete protein! This is good news for vegetarians and vegans who are looking for a very clean source of complete protein in their diet.
Micro-algae offer a convenient solution to balancing the pH in the body. Chlorella is extremely alkalizing, which means it helps to create a more alkaline environment in the body and serves to counteract the acidity created by: processed foods, sugar, caffeine, alcohol and stress. Acidity in he body promotes increased bone loss as the body must sacrifice calcium from bones and teeth to balance pH. Consuming more alkaline foods has been strongly linked with improved immune system function, mental function, kidney function, and higher levels of energy.
Chlorella can be found in tablet form. Make sure you find 100% chlorella tablets with no fillers or binders. Look for 100% cracked wall chlorella. You can swallow the tablets whole, or chew them.
