Chlorellais a microscopic, single-celled, blue-green algae found in fresh water environments. Each tiny cell is a complete food, rich in protein, vitamins and minerals, and for its size, contains the highest content of chlorophyll known in the plant kingdom. It is the most widely used nutritional supplement in Japan. Chlorella's remarkable health benefits include antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties that boost the immune system and can lower cholesterol and glucose levels in the blood.
Chlorella's claim to fame, however, is its ability to chemically attract and bind, or chelate, with heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and cadmium, and other toxins such as arsenic and insecticides. Chelation arrests the reactivity of the toxins which are then ushered out of the body. Any good detoxification program should include
Chlorella to help cleanse and protect the body from the inside out.
