Because of the benefits of chlorella, many people consider this to be a superfood. Chlorella is a single cell algae that is so small it can only be seen by a microscope. However, it grows quickly and has a green color due to the high levels of chlorophyll that are present in the algae, so it is frequently grown in controlled circumstances for use in producing supplements. Taking a chlorella supplement is thought to be helpful in the treatment of a wide variety of different conditions due to the high content of vitamins and minerals, as well as amino acids and protein, that are present in this algae.
Some of the possible chlorella health benefits have been better documented than others, but the variety of conditions that might be helped with these supplements means that it might be worthwhile for many people to give them a try. Because chlorella is an algae, and therefore a food, it is pretty safe to take and can be taken in relatively large doses. If you plan to take supplements to help with a particular condition it might be a good idea to look into the research in order to figure out what dose might be the most helpful for you to take.
Chlorella benefits include the fact that the fibrous outer shell of this algae will bind to toxic metals and chemicals such as mercury, lead, and cadmium in the body in a process known as chelation. This helps to remove these toxic metals from the body over the course of time. Normally these heavy metals would stay in the body and accumulate, causing many health issues. The same is true with many pesticides and chemicals that might be present in the body.
Another chlorella benefit is the fact that chlorella strengthens the immune system. This is why it is thought to help with such a wide variety of different conditions. Some people take supplements in order to assist in the treatment of cancer, arthritis, infections, and degenerative diseases. A stronger immune system will help the body to heal faster from any illness or injury.
Chlorella health benefits also include improving digestion, lowering blood pressure (and therefore the risk of heart attacks and strokes), and helping the body to better control blood sugar levels (thus assisting diabetics with their condition). Due to the wide variety of people that suffer from conditions like this, it is no wonder that people are taking an interest in chlorella.
Many of us also eat a diet that is not all that healthy, containing a lot of processed foods and fast foods, which tends to alter the ideal pH in our body to make it more acidic and make us more susceptible to certain health conditions. Chlorella can help to reverse this balance since it is more alkaline in nature. An acidic environment tends to speed the growth and spread of many infections and diseases, so it is best to do what you can to maintain a more alkaline environment through eating healthfully and possibly taking supplements such as chlorella.

“1 Jul 2008 – Nali Anderson of Hawaii, US writes about the Flex Belt:
I am a physical therapist and we use the same technique to sustain muscles after a person has an injury. With that being said, my patients still need to exercises. No, this is not a quick and easy way to slim your body and it’s far from a magical cure but if used with appropriate diet and exercise it can be an effective tool in toning your abdominal muscles and contributing to the overall process of improving your body. I use it and it has worked great”
Using the belt for 3 years…
11 Nov 2008 – Leo of New Jersey, U.S.A. writes about the Flex Belt:
“The belt works for me, twice/day for three years. Before putting it on I clean lint off my belly, then put it on and wait 2-3 minutes for pads to warm up and adhere to skin for better conductivity. I leave it on at maximum time and intensity settings. I also watch my diet and do other exercises. I have never liked sit ups or crunches, so this has filled the void for me. I’m 65 years old and loving my body and life! Get off the sofa, exercise, and eat better foods.”
24 Mar 2008 – Rick of MD, USA writes about the Flex Belt :
“If you have a big belly and want to get a 6 pack? Do cardio and stop eating so much. This isn’t a quick fix. The only way you will see results is if you already have a solid core to begin with and just want to “exercise” it a different way. Does it work? Yes. For people with 4 packs already.”
THIS PRODUCT DOES WORK
26 Oct 2007 – LON of California, USA writes about the Flex Belt:
“ok when i got this product i was kinda taken back i looks cheap and has very little to no wieght to it. but after the first five min. wow you can really feel it. you might have to set it to a higher setting if you a heavy person. my setting in between 60-70. but in just two day you will feel the differents. now remeber this doesn’t mean you can ” eat anything you want” or this is the only thing to do to get in shape. but it does help alot, so eat right, do other types of work out and use this belt and see and feel the results.”
helps my abs AND my back pain
22 Oct 2007 – Diane of New York, USA writes about the Flex Belt:
“I’ve been using the belt 3 weeks, twice a day. I love it. Not only is my lower tummy pooch flatter and my abs overall more defined, the sensations from the belt have actually eased up back pains I have been having constantly for months! I changed the pads only once in 3 weeks and that was 2 days ago. I still do other ab work but only once a week now instead of 3 times which is wonderful”
Surprisingly, it works!
20 Sep 2007 – Kevin of California, USA writes about the Flex Belt:
“Yes, it works. I have tried this for 2 weeks (very skeptical at first)and saw results after a few days. My wife likes it, too. At a higher level, above 70 or so, my back aches a little. My wife equates it to backaches in early contraction before delivery. I hate situps so I’m glad to have this product.”
i used mine twice a day level 4 for 40 minutes
14 Aug 2007 – Lane of Guam, Guam writes about the Flex Belt:
“It works. I think. I cheated i was desperate, ive tried many different workouts and none seem to give me the results i was looking for. i saw the infomercial got it and used it twice a day everyday at level 4 for 40 mintues each session. i never had a problem with my middle region but ive always wanted the whole toned look you see on tv. ive done alot to define my abs and it wasnt until i started using slendertone when i actualy noticed definition. it would have taken me years to get here and with the help of slendertone it took me months to reach my goal. it definitely is worth giving the chance. it worked for me.”
I don’t regret purchasing this.
24 Jul 2007 – Cindy of New York, USA writes about the Flex Belt:
“I’m a nurse and am generally skeptical about things like this but I’ve had this product for about 8 weeks now and use it at least 5 times a week at the highest level and I think it works. I hate doing sit ups because I always thought it was ineffective but after using this, I actually feel my abdominal muscles contract while doing sit ups. I’m not overweight but I’ve always had a little abdominal flab that I’ve just never been able to get rid of. Slendertone helped me pass that little hurdle and I feel that I’m actually getting somewhere with a little extra exercising and watching what I eat. I do wish the product was cheaper but I nevertheless, the money I spent on it in exchange for how I feel about my body now is worth it.”
Skeptical at first
11 Jul 2007 – Olivia of New York, USA writes about the Flex Belt:
“When I started using this product I was really skeptical, but I am not an athletic person so I decided to try it. I am 44, was not really overweight, but I have always had a “soft” abdomen, especially “the pouch” that I really hate. Well, I just started level 4 (the last level) and I can see the difference!! My abs are visible now (they are not still hard rock abs but you can now see them). I still have “the pouch” but is definitively smaller and my stomach in general looks firmer. I am not really dieting; I just decided to make some changes at the same time: reduced sugar intake and started eating more fruit and vegetables. Finally, the best part: Seeing how my abdomen is changing has motivated me to work out more for the first time in my life.”
It’s not magic, but it works.
15 Apr 2007 – John of Florida, USA writes about the Flex Belt:
“PROS: It works. You put it on, turn up the juice, and your abs start contracting. CONS: Misconceptions about what to expect. SUMMARY: The Slendertone isn’t like doing a sit up. It’s more like sucking in your gut. It causes your abs to contract (sucking in your gut), but there’s no resistance (sit-up), so you’re not really strengthening your abs. You are however toning them, and working on their endurance. RESULT: If you’re in shape and you go to the gym a lot, but you hate doing sit ups, this will help so you may only have to do sit ups once a week instead of three times a week. However, if you’re really over weight and you don’t go to the gym, you’ll get little to nothing out of this.”
Remember the Flex Belt is not a weight loss device it’s a toning device, so don’t expect it to be able to magically melt away fat. Does it replace healthy eating and exercise? No. Does it assist tummy toning? Yes.
