Chlorella and Anti-Aging
Chlorella contains many anti-aging substances: chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and amino acids (the building blocks of proteins). The essential fatty acids are important for many body functions and are also necessary for a healthy and youthful skin.
Chlorophyll is known for its detoxifying and cleansing effect, and it can help to get rid of toxins that cause premature aging. It also contains antioxidants that prevent damage to the body's cells from free radicals. The antioxidants can help to keep your skin looking younger as free radical damage is one of the main causes of aging on the skin.
DNA and RNA
The main anti-aging benefits of chlorella are its nucleic acids DNA and RNA. The DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (Ribonucleic acid) in chlorella can rejuvenate the body's own DNA and RNA, which then helps the body to repair damage caused by environmental poisons, stress and poor diet.
In one study patients who were given foods with a high nucleic acid content developed a more youthful and healthier-looking skin after taking nucleic acids for just two months. The study recommended eating sardines for their high nucleic acid content, but chlorella is much richer in RNA than sardines and could be a more effective anti-aging food.
How to Take It
The best way to try the benefits of chlorella is to take it daily and experience how it can boost your energy levels, to make the body function more efficiently, to give you more vitality and to nourish all the cells in the body. The DNA and RNA will help your body to repair its cells, and the antioxidants prevent damage caused by free radicals.
