If you are looking to get rid of stubborn excess weight, chlorella can be quite helpful. Some of our environmental chemicals are stored in fat cells in the body, in order to protect vital organs from these toxins. Unless the chemicals are eliminated along with the fat cells, keeping this fat may be in our best interest. Chlorella helps to bind to these toxins, allowing for safe fat loss. Chlorella intake has also been correlated with a reduction in body fat percentage, serum total cholesterol and fasting blood glucose levels. It is believed that chlorella activates a number of genes at the cellular level that improve insulin sensitivity, encouraging a healthy balance. This superpower helps to reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease. Also great for overcoming and preventing sugar cravings!
Chlorella Powder can also be used for healing and recovery. It is commonly used amongst athletes to shorten their recovery period. Chlorella has a unique ability to boost healthy cell growth and regenerate tissues in the body. This is due to what is now called the chlorella growth factor (CGF). This CGF is what helps the plant grow faster than any other plant on earth. (It actually has the ability to quadruple in size in just 20 hours!) It results in rapid tissue growth, healing and repair.
