Chlorella Algae has the ability to detoxify the digestive tract. The outer shell of the Chlorella absorbs all of the toxic agents that are present in the digestive tract, cleaning the intestines as it passes through. Not only that, but the insides of the algae are chock full of nutrients, including Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Folic acid, Vitamin B2, Manganese and Iodine.
Chlorella Algae also helps to open up the arteries, increasing blood flow and subsequently the amount of oxygen that makes it to muscle tissue and other important areas. It also synthesizes red blood cells to stimulate creation of new blood and the production of microscopic plant cultures within the intestine.
The question about the difference between Chlorella Algae and Spirulina Algae is often brought up, since the two are very similar. Chlorella Algae has higher Iron content than Spirulina, which can be a benefit or a drawback, depending on the individual needs of the person taking it. Pregnant women often need to have higher Iron intake. Older men also need more Iron in their diet to strengthen their bones. However, taking too much Iron can cause oxidation, which puts greater pressure on the immune system to neutralize free radicals. Much of it comes down to personal preference.
This product should be taken in doses of 1 teaspoon, or 3.2 grams, taken anywhere up to three times per day, depending on intended effect.
