Chlorella is a powerful ‘superfood' substance that works as a healthy weight-loss supplement and is compatible with a keto diet. Not only does Chlorella aid digestion and absorption of nutrients, it helps enhance the immune system and improves conditions for friendly intestinal bacteria. So what is this powdery, dark green substance? NaturalSociety has a nice, concise explanation:
Chlorella is a microscopic, single-celled, blue-green algae that lives in fresh water and is revered as a superfood and natural medicine. Chlorella is comprised primarily of a nucleus and a huge amount of bioavailable chlorophyll, a substance that counteracts toxins in food and the environment. Chlorella contains every one of the B vitamins, a healthy amounts of C and E, amino acids, peptides, polysaccharides, protein, and nucleic acids RNA and DNA.
Another surprise is that chlorella contains growth factors that are the plant equivalent of human growth hormone.
A scientific study published in 2014 showed that chlorella helps remedy problems related to insulin signalling, making it easier for the body to manage blood-glucose properly.
Chlorella has also been shown to assist the body in detoxifying itself of heavy metals and pollutants such as radiation and chemical toxins used in cancer therapies. Chlorella attaches to substances such as lead, cadmium, mercury, and uranium, for example, and helps prevent them from being absorbed into the body.
If you have the option, choose a chlorella source listed as “broken cell-wall,” as this is almost twice as digestible as lower quality versions with intact cell walls.
Best of all, chlorella is effective in relatively small doses and is also compatible with a keto diet.
