The average American now carries a “body burden” of seven hundred or more synthetic chemicals. These chemicals are found in the umbilical cord blood of new born babies. Even in the breast milk of mothers perchlorate (a toxic component of rocket fuel) is found.
The name “chlorella” refers to a number of species of single-celled green algae packed with chlorophyll, the chemical that gives plants their green color. Chlorella contains protein and carotenoids, plant pigments with antioxidant power. Fiber, chlorophyll, and lipids contained in Chlorella cells are found to be involved in the inhibition of absorption of dioxin in the digestive tract and reabsorption of dioxins in bile.
What is dioxin?
Dioxins are some of the most toxic chemicals known to science. According to an EPA report, not only does there appear to be no "safe" level of exposure to dioxin, but levels of dioxin and dioxin-like chemicals have been found in the general US population that are "at or near levels associated with adverse health effects." Dioxin was the primary toxic component of Agent Orange, just so you know. And it’s in our food: mostly dairy and meat also including poultry, fish and eggs.
Mixtures of several PCB’s with dioxin caused synergistic increases in toxicity eight hundred times above what had been predicted.
What are PCBs??
PCBs belong to a broad family of man-made organic chemicals known as chlorinated hydrocarbons. PCBs were domestically manufactured from 1929 until their manufacture was banned in 1979. Although no longer commercially produced in the United States, PCBs are present in products and materials produced before the 1979 PCB ban. Plastics! That you store your foods in and drink from but no longer microwave in…right?
Green algae are the highest sources of chlorophyll in the plant world; and, of all the green algae studied so far, chlorella is the highest, often ranging from 3 to 5% chlorophyll. The tight binding of chlorophyll to potential carcinogens may interfere with their absorption from the gastrointestinal tract and reduce the amount that reaches susceptible tissues.
Proven to prevent the absorption and reabsorption of dioxins, Green Chlorella is also credited with cleansing the bowel and other elimination systems and may protect the liver while lowering triglycerides. In 1975, Japanese researchers published an article in the Japanese Journal of Nutrition, showing that chlorella in the diet lowered both the blood cholesterol and liver cholesterol. In addition, regular use of Chlorella in the diet may help to clean the bloodstream, balance blood sugar, and normalize blood pressure. Chlorella helps to build up the immune factors stimulating interferon production and helping protect cells against viruses and aiding wounds to heal.
Precautions: Chlorella may cause allergic reactions, as well as photosensitivity, in some people. Chlorella supplements can be rich in vitamin K, which can reduce the effectiveness of the blood-thinning drug warfarin.
