All of us are more and more loaded with toxic substances. There are a variety of source, e.g. foods, air pollution, clothes and surgery or even tooth fillings. Our detox system is running all day and night, but mostly our body is not able to get completely rid of these substances. They accumulate in different organs and may cause severe conditions and diseases. Gladly, there are natural remedies that help our body to remove these toxins. One of these remedies is micronized chlorella algae.
The name chlorella is latin and means “little, young green”. The best known representatives of the species are chlorella pyrenoidosa and chlorella vulgaris. Both are nearly equal in regards to their mechanism of action.
Chlorella algae are single-cell organisms, which contain a nucleus. This makes them microalgae, in contrast to spirulina and AFA algae.
Pretreated chlorella for optimized activity
Given that the chlorella cell wall consists of three thick layers, it cannot be digested very well, if it is not pretreated. The cell wall is thus broken through micronization processes. That way, all nutrients included in the alga are highly bioavailable.
Chlorella’s magic ingredients
- vitamin A, C, D, E, K1 and the B vitamins
- iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc
- high levels of beta-carotene and lutein
- highest bioavailability for vegetarian proteins
- high levels of inositol
- chlorella growth factor
- extremely high levels of chlorophyll
- sporopollenin, which is intensely involved in toxin elimination. It binds heavy metals, solvents, pesticides and insecticides and prevents re-toxification through the guts.
Protectonin and De-Noxilipidnin
Chlorella contains amounts of detoxifying ingredients. Beside chlorophyll and sporopollenin, there can be found cell protective and detoxifying carotinoides, glycoproteins , glutathione as well as protectonin and de-noxilipidine.
Protectonins are part of the so-called phyto-chelatins. These molecules are effective antioxidants, which protect the body cells and also relieve the immune system. Also, they build irreversible complexes with to heavy metals which then are eliminated through the gut.
The molecule de-noxilipidnin acts in a similar way. It is capable to bind to heavy metals and organic toxins and thus helps neutralize these noxae.
Areas of application
Chlorella can be used externally and internally for several purposes. It is recommended to use chlorella to detoxify the body but also during the general treatment of different civilisation conditions. Some areas of application are:
- poisoning with heavy metals, chemical toxins and mycotoxins
- vascular diseases
- liver and kidney diseases
- digestive conditions
- skin conditions
Micronized chlorella is capable to stimulate detoxification and the self-healing power of the body. It stimulates growth processes and is hence excellent to assist the treatment of children with mental or physical growth issues.
Chlorella vitalizes metabolism and helps repair damaged tissues. The high chlorophyll level stimulates wound healing, which is why it is used externally and internally.
Chlorella intake also improves regeneration of hair and nails – which represents the entire improvement of the health situation unter chlorella treatment.
