Why Should You Care About Chlorella (And Is It Dangerous?)
Ever fancy yourself eating algae at one of your meals?
We didn’t think so.
That’s what chlorella is. But fortunately, to experience its many benefits, you don’t have to eat it in algal form.
And even though it doesn’t sound as appetizing as, say, pizza, you’ll seriously consider adding it to your diet after you read this post.
Most of the chlorella in the world comes from Taiwan and Japan. It’s loaded with amino acids, beta-carotene, potassium, and B-complex vitamins. You’ll learn what all that means to you and your health as you read this list of benefits it offers:
Detoxify Your Body from Heavy Metals and Potentially Harmful Chemicals
This is far and away the top benefit of chlorella. It binds easily to heavy metals and chemicals that cause harm to your body.
In fact, people who use chemotherapy or radiation treatment sometimes take it to reduce the chemicals floating around in their body. One study revealed it helps protect mice exposed to lead (which can cause cancer) and other heavy metals.
However, you do have some risk when taking chlorella to reduce heavy metals and chemicals. Some medical experts believe it may actually increase the heavy metals present in your body because it binds to them, but not strongly enough to actually remove them.
If you decide to take chlorella for this purpose, make sure you do so in conjunction with your doctor.
