5 Amazing Health Benefits of Chlorella

5 Amazing Health Benefits of Chlorella

Have you heard of Chlorella? Though it is increasing in popularity in North America, did you know Chlorella is the #1 selling supplement in Japan? Sales and consumption even surpass that of Vitamin C.

Chlorella takes the meaning of 'superfood' to a whole new level. Comprising of 50-60% protein, it is high in iron, fiber, vitamins A, B-12, C, amino acids, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, chlorophyll, and other vitamins & minerals. Its unique nutritional profile offers health benefits not found in any other whole food. 

Keep reading to see why we're obsessed with chlorella, and why you should be too.

1. Naturally detoxifies your body

Detox teas have nothing on Chlorella. Chlorella is one of the best natural detoxifiers due to its ability to bind to heavy metals and toxins in the body.  Everyone is exposed to heavy metals in small amounts through paints, makeup, batteries, food and even going to the dentist. Plus, we don't always put the most healthy things into our bodies (cough junk food and alcohol). Chlorella helps naturally enhance your body's ability to clear toxins, making it great for liver health, and even relieving hangovers. 

2. Protects your heart

Several studies have shown cholesterol lowers the bad LDL cholesterol and triglycerides in people with high blood pressure. The high content of fiber, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins naturally lower cholesterol, cholesterol levels and stabilizes blood sugar, which can result in heart disease if not kept in check.

3. Gives your immune system a boost

The abundance of antioxidants and essential vitamins helps your body strengthen its immune response, creating more antibodies to fight off foreign invaders. 

4. Gut health promoter

Chlorella helps boost the presence of healthy probiotic bacteria in your intestinal tract, improving digestive health. Studies have shown chlorella reduces cramps, gas, bloating and diarrhea. The mix of antioxidants, vitamin A and chlorophyll help counter inflammation that can lead to digestive challenges & constipation.

5. Plant based source of essential nutrients

Fatty fish like salmon and tuna actually get their high omega-3 from eating algae like Chlorella. If you don't eat seafood, you can get your omega-3s straight from the source.

Chlorella is also one of the few plant based sources of Vitamin B-12, commonly found in meat products. 

In addition to the health benefits above, taking chlorella is also good for your skin and hair! The rich nutrient profile of the chlorella growth factor helps promote hair growth. The antioxidant, vitamin D and amino acid content helps protect skin cells from aging, promoting skin regeneration and reducing inflammation.
