Heavy metal toxicity, just like chemical toxicity, has become one of the most pressing health hazards of our day. These mercury levels come from silver (mercury) fillings,? vaccines, seafood, everyday cookware, and the air we breathe.? One of the major routes of exposure to heavy metals in the United States, aside from vaccines and dental fillings, is eating fish, which is a real shame because seafood has many healthy qualities and is also the preferred food for dieters.? For these reasons amongst many others, detoxing the body has become something of a norm for many people looking to stay healthy, fit, and have a longer life span.
With the information we have these days about the air we breathe, the toxins we ingest without even realizing it and the dishonest food manufacturers and even government bodies, detoxing is a necessity and not always an easy task to undertake.
Thanks to Dr. Ginny Bank, we now know of? a food that flushes heavy toxins from the body at a powerful rate and offers other tremendous benefits to the body and even the mind.
Chlorella – a single-celled fresh water algae -? is often referred to as a near-perfect food, as its range of health benefits is truly astounding. It’s no wonder Dr. Bank refers to chlorella as a “phenomenal nutrient.” It has the ability to detox your body by binding toxins such as mercury and cart them out of the the body.? But there is more –
- Chlorella is a huge benefit to vegetarians and vegans who want protein and B vitamins from a non animal food source.
- Chlorella is about 60 percent protein, and is considered to be a “complete protein” source because it contains all the essential amino acids your body needs.
- It enhances the immune system and reduces cancer risk
- It normalizes blood sugar and blood pressure
- It repairs nerve tissues
- Improves digestion
- Promotes healthy pH levels in the gut, which in turn helps good bacteria to thrive
- Enhances the ability to focus and concentrate
- Increases energy levels
Chlorella is a Potent Detox Agent
Dr Bank explains “Chlorella plays a particularly crucial role in systemic mercury elimination, because the majority of mercury is rid through your stool. Once the mercury burden is lowered from your intestines, mercury from other body tissues will more readily migrate into your intestines — where chlorella will work to remove it.? Ideally you would need to take it with a meal so it binds directly to the toxins while they are in your gut, before they absorbed into your body.” This would be a most suitable tablet to take when consuming seafood meals.
Chlorella’s cleansing action on your bowel and other elimination channels, as well as its protection of your liver, also helps promote clean blood, which helps assure metabolic waste gets efficiently carried away from your tissues.
The Fundamental Detail of Chlorella
The key to chlorella’s detoxing abilities lies within the membrane of this single cell, but the wall of that cell is indigestible.? However with the “broken cell wall” chlorella has been rendered digestible. When searching for chlorella tablets it is vital that the packaging tells you that the “cell wall is broken.”? Without the cell wall being broken you are gaining none of the benefits of chlorella.? So take care when buying your tablets and be sure to check the label.
There are only a few producers of chlorella in the world who provide the raw material to manufacturers, who then process and package it.? Reputable companies, will adhere to certain processes that increase your chances of getting the levels of nutrients stated.? Manufacturers who are known for quality will make sure they receive a certificate of analysis from the producer of the raw material, and will get batches evaluated by an independent third party on a regular basis to ensure consistency.
As with any supplement, different brands of chlorella will be available.? Potency and purity are extremely important so make sure you purchase from a reputable source and check the labeling as suggested above.
How to Use Chlorella for Heavy Metal Detoxing
In order to optimize heavy metal detoxing, you’ll want to take at least 4 grams of chlorella every day.? Dr. Bank recommends taking it once a day in the morning.? Typically the tablets come in 500 mg each so you would need to take eight tablets a day.
It is not at all unusual for some? people to experience slight nausea and mild diarrhea initially, due to the toxins being carted out of the body.? If you find this is the situation for you, don’t panic. Simply introduce chlorella slowly into your system by gradually building the intake to the eight tablets a day.? This means you start with a lower dose and increase it gradually until you have reached the ability to comfortably take eight tablets a day.? Taking chlorella with food will also help alleviate any nausea.
A User Friendly Detoxing Agent
Chlorella as a detoxing agent is a most suitable choice for those who want animal proteins without eating animals.? It is also easy to take, as it comes in tablet form, which means no awful tasting large amount of fluids to drink like other detox agents. If the side effects are too much for you, you can slowly increase the dosage as opposed to just throwing it out because you can’t handle the awful taste or side effects.? This makes Chlorella a user friendly detoxing agent.
Remember to check labels carefully when sourcing out chlorella in order to gain it’s maximum benefits as a detoxing agent and be worth your hard earned money.
