Heavy Metal Contamination
Heavy metal toxins can be partly responsible for serious conditions such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Even if they do not lead to a severe illness, they can cause a variety of symptoms: tiredness, allergies and headaches. Heavy metals in the body are also thought to be linked to many psychological problems, behavioral problems and learning disabilities. One of the most common contaminant is mercury and there has been a growing concern over the years about the use of mercury in dental amalgam fillings. The ability to remove toxic contamination from the body's cells is one of the best benefits of chlorella.
Natural Detox Power
Chlorella cleanses heavy metals by releasing them from the body's cells and then carrying them out of the body. Many detox methods are only able to release the metals into the bloodstream, but chlorella has a unique ability to bind itself to the metals so that they will be purged through normal elimination. Other chlorella benefits include its high content of chlorophyll, known for its detoxifying power. As well as chlorophyll this micro-algae is rich in many minerals and vitamins, and these will keep your body healthy and supply it with nutrients while you detox. Chlorella can also help to relieve the side effects of detoxing, such as headaches or tiredness.
How To Take It
Chlorella is safe to take even in large amounts. To make the most of the benefits of chlorella, take 20 to 30 grams every day during the detox. If you have not used it before, you can start with smaller doses (for example 0,5 grams a day) and gradually build up your intake. To continue enjoying chlorella benefits for heavy metal detox, keep taking a small dose (3 to 6 grams) every day after finishing the actual detox.
