BENEFITS OF CHLORELLA
1. PROMOTES CLEAR SKIN
There’s evidence to suggest that chlorella may largely reduce the appearance of breakouts and improve skin quality. One hypothesis as to how this works is that the lipids in chlorella kill microorganisms that cause breakouts. It’s also possible that the chlorella’s fatty acids disrupt the pro-inflammatory cytokine response that leads to more breakouts. In sum, research supports the notion that clearer skin is one of the biggest chlorella benefits.
2. HELPS REMOVE HEAVY METALS
Another compelling possibility surrounding chlorella is its capacity to help the body remove heavy metals. It’s likely that chlorella is one of our more powerful chelators, meaning it bonds to metal ions in the body and incapacitates their chemical effects.
We also know that there are numerous compounds released into the atmosphere from nuclear power plants, which can compromise your health. Fortunately, however, a 2016 study shows that chlorella may have a substantial effect in helping remove even these compounds from the human body.
3. SUPPORTS IMMUNITY + NUTRITION
As if being the literal terminator of toxic substances wasn’t enough, chlorella may also help support your immune system. One study showed enhanced cytokine production, lending credence to the idea that chlorella may stimulate immune response.
Additionally, the nutrient density of chlorella is likely to help improve overall health. Finally, beyond the health benefits of chlorella, it serves as a nourishing food source.
