You may know that many of the ingredients in our natural IBS treatment are clinically proven to provide relief from irritable bowel syndrome symptoms. But did you know that these all natural ingredients can also provide many other important health benefits in addition to just treating IBS when taken daily?
Today we will dive deeper into: Chlorella
Chlorella is a blue-green algae that is native to Japan and Taiwan. It's often called a superfood because of it's high concentrations of phytonutrients, including amino acids, B-complex vitamins, beta-carotene, biotin, chlorophyll, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorous. It's nutritionally speaking, one of the healthiest substances found on Earth and packs more nutrients per gram than broccoli, spinach and even kale. Here are some of the benefits of chlorella that are supported by clinical studies.
A study at the Yonsei University in Seoul Korea in 2012 looked at healthy (non-infected) human participants and how their immune system cells responded to 8 weeks of chlorella intake. The study concluded that there was an enhancement of Natural Killer cell activity among the subjects that consumed the chlorella pills versus those that took a placebo.
Along the same lines as the boost in immune health provided by chlorella consumption, it's also been clinically proven to fight cancer cells. A 2009 study concluded that chlorella intake can help to remove heavy metals and toxins from our bodies. It also showed that it can promote the growth of new T cells which are crucial in helping to fight new abnormal cell growth. For those cancer patients that have received chemotherapy and/or radiation to treat their disease, chlorella in another study has been clinically proven to protect the body against ultraviolet radiation treatments, in addition to helping to remove radioactive particles from the body.3 Encounters with dangerous heavy metals, which we mentioned above, are pretty difficult to avoid in today's world, whether through vaccinations, mercury based dental fillings, or contaminated foods, for example, fatty fishes like tuna and salmon. These heavy metals are known cancer causers. Two studies have shown that chlorella can prevent the accumulation of these toxins after initial consumption, and can also surround and protect ours bodies' cells from reabsorbing metals that are already in us.4,5
Healthy Weight Loss6
For the overwhelming majority of people, healthy weight loss is a challenge to say the least. Chlorella can help according to a study published in 2008. 17 subjects were studied over a 16 week period and the findings were quite positive, concluding “Chlorella intake resulted in noticeable reductions in body fat percentage, serum total cholesterol, and fasting blood glucose levels.” The glucose-insulin battle is not only key for those suffering from diabetes, but for anyone looking to pursue a healthy BMI (body mass index). Keeping these balances in check is essential for an optimal, lean, mean human machine. Likewise, keeping cholesterol levels at a healthy reading is essential for heart health. Two additional studies offer proof that chlorella can help to regulate these functions.7,8
Free-radicals, we hear a lot about them and their destructive nature on human cells, but what are they? From a chemistry standpoint, they're unbalanced atoms or groups of atoms that are in search of an electron(s) to make them balanced, usually caused by an interaction with oxygen. When these form in the human body, they can multiply quite quickly if they aren't neutralized, eventually causing disease. The term oxidative stress refers to a destructive state where these atoms are forming quicker than they can be neutralized by healthy antioxidants. When the body is working extremely hard to try to counteract these free radicals, it tires and shows signs of aging. By consuming high doses of antioxidants, we can allow our bodies to run in a non-stress environment, resulting in an anti-aging effect. Chlorella contains high levels of key antioxidant molecules, thus reducing oxidative stress and helping to promote a young appearance.
