Chlorella - A superfood to help your joint problems


Is one of the few superfoods that can really help improve joint problems. There are not many foods which pass for being the ultimate super food but Chlorella has made it right up there with the best of the best.

Chlorella is a special freshwater algae that contains a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and all amino acids known to be essential for the nutrition of animals and human beings, that it’s considered to be nearly a perfect whole food. Chlorella also happens to be the richest source of chlorophyll on earth and to put it mildly, an extremely effective Superfood with a large variety of disease busting proteins and nutrients. It has been shown to activate the limited number of macrophages that scavenge and digest cancer cells, foreign proteins and chemicals.

It has a very long list of health benefits which include: increased production of interferon (an antiviral protein produced by cells that have been invaded by a virus & in turn inhibit replication of the virus); cleansing the blood stream, liver, kidneys, and bowel; stimulating the production of red blood cells; increasing oxygen to your body’s cells and brain. Chlorella aides digestion; promotes proper growth in children; stimulates tissue repair; helps raise the pH of your body to a more alkaline state; helps keep the heart functioning normally; and helps promote the production of friendly flora in your gastrointestinal tract.

Chlorella contains an abundant supply of fatty acids and 20 per cent of these are omega-3 fatty acids, which is why it plays a significant role in joint related problems. Studies have shown Chlorella to be highly effective in treating fibromyalgia, whose primary symptoms involve inflammation or pain in joints and muscles, often accompanied by fatigue. Consumption of Chlorella has had astounding results on all kinds of joint pain, stiffness, numbness and tingling. It also seems to help people with some nerve pain problems. This is probably due to Chlorellas’ outer wall contain glucosamine which is very important for health cartilage, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissues.

One of the most popular ways that Chlorella has been used for today is a detoxifying agent. It goes without saying that detoxifying our bodies is vital to the health of our bodies so why not use this Super detoxifier. It contains a large amount carotenoids, magnesium, and chlorophyll which are highly effective cleansing and protective agents. In between stimulating our immune system & inhibiting cancer cells, Chlorella also seems to be particularly effective in eliminating toxic metals like cadmium, mercury and uranium from our bodies.

There is just no end to the health benefits of Chlorella and it would be crazy not to include it as part of our daily diet. It might just be the perfect solution to our refined foods, nutrient-poor diets and toxic environment.
