Are You Missing Key Nutrients? 5 Proven Benefits Of Chlorella

Published

on

I’m going to start with one premise: Food is medicine. Everything we put into our bodies has an effect, and we can either support our health or diminish it. There are a number of superfoods out there that have awesome health benefits, like avocados for cancer prevention and blueberries for antioxidants, but what about super supplements?

While there are many to choose from, Chlorella in particular is an absolute powerhouse. All natural and completely safe for consumption, it is a freshwater blue-green algae which boosts energy, supports fat loss, improves skin, and helps detox heavy metals like lead and mercury from the body. Chlorella gets it rich green colour because of the high concentration of chlorophyll, and it comes in both powder and pill form, making it easy to include into your routine.

I’ve been taking 4-5 of these little green guys every day since mid-January and I can honestly see and feel a major difference in my health.

Chlorella is similar to spirulina but even more beneficial because it has shown to be an immune booster and it increases good bacteria in the GI tract, which helps treat ailments such as ulcers, colitis, and Crohn’s disease. It has even proven to help treat constipation, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

In Japan, Chlorella has been used to treat cancer and help protect the body from the effects of radiation treatment. It supports the entire body’s hormonal function and aids in detoxification by surrounding heavy metals and preventing them from absorbing into the body. I wasn’t kidding when I said it’s probably the only supplement you need to take.

Eating enough nutritionally dense foods, like leafy greens, to meet your recommended daily intake of vegetables ( 5-7 servings a day) can be tough sometimes, and juicing them can be pretty time consuming. Taking Chlorella definitely helps support a healthy diet, filling in the gaps on those days when eating all the right things just isn’t feasible.

1 ounce or 3g of it contains: 16g protein, 287% Vitamin A RDA, 71% Vitamin B2 RDA, 33% Vitamin B3 RDA, 202% Iron RDA, 22% Magnesium RDA, and 133% Zinc RDA. Chlorella contains 18 amino acids (including all the essential ones) and various other minerals. It’s no wonder it is ranked as one of the top 10 nutritious foods on the planet; per gram, it actually blows kale, spinach, and broccoli out of the water.

5 Benefits of Chlorella:

1. Heavy Metal Detox

We all have metals in our bodies. From the foods we eat (especially fish) to the fillings in our teeth, vaccines, and deodorants, numerous foods and products contain metals that go into our bodies. Regular consumption of Chlorella helps to keep heavy metals from accumulating in our body’s soft tissues and organs in the first place. (1,2)

2. Immune System Support

A study conducted in 2012 in the Nutrition Journal saw that after 8 weeks of Chlorella intake, ‘natural killer’ cell activity improved. Healthy individuals saw their immune systems respond well to Chlorella supplements. (3)

3. Look Younger

A study published in the journal Clinical Laboratory revealed that Chlorella greatly reduces oxidative stress. Caused by pollution, stress, and poor diet, it is this phenomenon which causes our skin to age prematurely. More research still needs to be done on the effects of Chlorella in this regard, but preliminary results suggest it can actually slow down the aging process. Because it naturally increases levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, and glutathione in our bodies, which help eliminate free-radicals and protect cells, it makes our skin look younger.(4)

4. Weight Loss

At some point in our lives we will or have tried to lose some weight, and I think we all know how challenging it can be. In a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, researchers note that “Chlorella intake resulted in noticeable reductions in body fat percentage, serum total cholesterol, and fasting blood glucose levels.” It does this by helping to regulate hormones, improve circulation, and steady metabolism. In general, when we lose weight we also lose toxins, but the problem is we then reabsorb them. Chlorella’s ability to surround the toxins and heavy metals that are in our bodies helps facilitate their elimination and also prevents their reabsorption.(5)

5. Blood Sugar and Cholesterol

Type 2 Diabetes and high cholesterol are two issues which affect millions of people around the world, and can often be attributed to lifestyle — poor diet, chronic stress, or lack of sleep are all major culprits here.  A study conducted on people with high risk factors found that doses of 8,000 mg of Chlorella per day (divided into 2 doses) helped lower cholesterol and blood glucose levels. Researchers observed first a decline in cholesterol levels, and then the improvement in blood glucose, and concluded that Chlorella activates a number of genes at the cellular level that improve insulin sensitivity, encouraging a healthy balance.  (6,7)

Consumption

Chlorella’s tough exterior cellular walls are difficult to digest, and a significant amount of research has gone into optimizing our ability to digest it effectively. When purchasing a Chlorella supplement, be sure to buy “cracked cell wall Chlorella,” which can actually be absorbed by the body properly.

Side Effects

There can be some side effects to taking chlorella but are mainly due to detoxification. Some of the symptoms include swelling of the face or tongue sensitivity to sunlight, digestive upset, acne, fatigue, lethargy, headaches, vertigo, and shaking.

10 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Walk Everyday

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There are multiple health benefits to be gained by taking a simple walk every day. These benefits are measurable, and if you don't already have an active lifestyle it can be a great way to assist you with your health.

  • Reflect On:

    Reflect on how the human race has become extremely sedentary, and how disease rates continue to climb as a result of the modern human lifestyle.

The human experience has become extremely sedentary, the average human lifestyle in the western world has been linked to multiple diseases and is one of the main causes of why disease rates continue to climb, among many other factors that surround all aspects of human life, like big food, for example. With technology in place and jobs that require tremendous amounts of sitting, there is no doubt that it’s having a detrimental effect on our lives.

That being said, the world is clearly becoming way more health conscious. It’s like we needed this experience of unhealthy food, the corporate take-over of everything, and our motionless lifestyle to knock us out of it. We are seeing a health revolution take place, where more and more people are becoming health conscious, and are always being encouraged to be more active.

Ultimately, we can’t really blame the human experience for our lack of movement, it’s something that all of us have the time to incorporate into our lives in one way or another, and if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy being too active, a simple walk every day can have tremendous amounts of benefits. As pointed out in the video below, by Bright Side.

If You Want To Increase The Benefits Even More, Walk Barefoot

It’s called grounding, or ‘earthing’ and it involves placing your feet directly on the ground, without shoes or socks as a barrier. Why? Because there is an intense negative charge carried by the Earth, it’s electron-rich, which serves as a good supply of antioxidants and free radical destroying electrons.

A study published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health titled “Earthing: Health Implications of Reconnecting the Human Body to the Earth’s Surface Electrons” postulates that earthing could represent a potential treatment for a variety of chronic degenerative diseases.

That’s right, many positive health benefits occur as a result of walking barefoot, and these are measurable.

Nature Valley Ad Shows The Down Side Of Children Addicted To Technology

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Technology has impacted most of our lives in a really big way. We use it daily for everything we do pretty much. Kids today, unlike previous generations, use technology more than ever and spend much less time in nature.

  • Reflect On:

    How much is too much technology for young and developing minds? Is it time to reevaluate our children's relationship with technology and get them back into nature?

Technology has become a staple in most of our lives, really, could you imagine life without it? In the video posted below, Nature Valley asks 3 generations what it was that they did for fun as a kid, the answers from the youngest generation may or may not surprise you, but is it time to cut back on the technology and bring kids back to nature?

Technology is not bad per se, that isn’t the discussion here. This is about how we use it.

Before technology, children would look to nature for entertainment. They would play outside on the lawn, go sledding, build forts, and use their imagination to create their own entertainment. Nowadays it’s all too easy for kids to get sucked into technology, there are video games, tablets, computers, cell phones and television, all of which provide a type of escape from the real world. Although, there are many ways that technology is and has been used for good in the world, is the disconnect that it is causing children and adults to part from nature causing more harm?

With the rise of mental disorders and illnesses, is it possible that the answer to these issues is simply to get kids back into nature, more time with self, using their brains to build things, be creative and connect to the energy from the Earth? We already know how effective a simple walk or hike in nature is and how they both can literally change our brains. Nature appears to be much more important than we generally give it credit for.

In my own experience, disconnecting from technology and going camping on my own proved to be a very cathartic and healing experience for me. I’ve come to realize that although being immersed in nature regularly does have a lot of benefits, but even just making time for it at all can cause a positive impact. For many of us who live in cities, with the constant bombardment of noise and of course EMF frequencies etc., just disconnecting for a short period can make a huge difference.

The following video is a brilliant ad from Nature Valley, check it out.

It’s easy to get emotional watching something like this as it shows just how far removed the newer generations are from what has been most natural to children for centuries, simply playing in nature. The children are essentially self-proclaimed tech addicts and get their entertainment by playing video games, watching videos or tv shows, texting etc. Is it time to go back to the basics and start evaluating how detrimental too much technology can be on young and developing brains? You can read more about this issue here, Is Your Child Struggling From Nature-Deficit Disorder?

Is it up to the parents to ensure they are setting proper boundaries with the amount of time their children are allowed to use technology? Or is this the future and something we should simply let happen as a natural part of evolution?

6 Proven Ways to Cleanse Your Liver & Release Pent Up Anger

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In Chinese Medicine our liver is directly connected to anger and unfortunately, we live in a world where our liver is regularly taxed by toxic chemicals. Thankfully there is plenty that you can do without medication to keep this vital organ healthy!

  • Reflect On:

    What toxins are you regularly exposed to and what steps are you currently taking to combat them?

A toxic liver can lead to anger. In Chinese medicine, our biggest detox organ – our liver – is the organ connected to anger. When we work at changing our lifestyles and daily habits, we begin to see it having a positive effect on our mood as well as general health.

When toxicity mounts we have a more difficult time controlling or letting go of our angry feelings. Toxic chemicals accumulate in our bodies because we live in a toxic world. We microwave in plastic, we cook food in Tephlon coated pans, we smoke, we take medication, and eat fried and processed foods.

These food-like products contain toxic chemical preservatives, glyphosate; GMOs and pesticides. Ingesting poison daily results in everything from immune deficiency, mood disorders, lowered mental performance, and even life-threatening cancer.

So, besides avoiding many of the contributors of liver toxicity – what can we do?

1. Eat less added sugar & address possible yeast overgrowth in the gut

Yeast can cause fermentation of food in place of digestion and cause bloating and gas. It can contribute to “leaky gut syndrome” – thus in turn can lead to the production of toxins that may affect the brain and nervous system. Yeast overgrowth can produce alcohol as its byproduct, acetaldehyde, giving us a “hangover” feeling. It can also lead to liver damage, and it prevents the proper detoxification of other pollutants, increasing the toxicity of other toxins.

2. Support the liver with botanicals

Plant medicine like Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root can help cleanse the liver. Both extracts are known to be pretty safe and well tolerated, and toxic or adverse effects observed in the reviewed clinical trials seem to be minimal. Only those with a ragweed, iodine or latex allergy should be cautious with dandelion. (Learn more about milk thistle)

3. Drink organic aloe vera juice

High quality; raw organic aloe vera can be a phenomenal digestive aid. It seals the gut wall, aids in digestion, has anti-inflammatory properties, helps the immune system, and detoxifies the liver, skin, and colon.

4. Cook with more turmeric & black pepper to help the body absorb nutrients better

Black pepper contains a compound called piperine, which increases the bioavailability of food by decreasing activity in the intestinal tract and inhibiting the metabolism of certain enzymes. Better still, cook with lots of turmeric and black pepper together. The combination helps the body absorb more curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.

This ingredient can heal gut wall permeability due to its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It also aids in digestion, strengthens the immune system, improves asthma, heals wounds, prevents the progression of memory loss, controls diabetes, improves liver function, lowers cholesterol, and fights cancer. (Note: A great supplement for this that I recommend for is Liver Health)

5. Incorporate liver cleansing foods into your diet

Incorporate liver cleansing foods such as green leafy veggies, avocados, apples, garlic, olive oil, citrus fruit, beets, and cruciferous vegetables into your weekly diet.

6. See An Acupuncturist

Used for thousands of years, acupuncture has been used to detox and balance the liver meridians to reduce anger and other emotional and psychiatric issues.  Simple needless acupressure is often used on children.
