Chlorella is a blue-green coloured algae like superfood quite similar to spirulina which is also packed with nutrients. The dark green colour comes from a high level of chlorophyll which is a primary constituent.

Top 5 Spirulina Powder Benefits When Detoxing

While there are several options to detox, detoxing with chlorella has several benefits for the body such as improving cardiovascular health, lowering blood pressure, promoting healthy hormone function and decreasing cholesterol.


Here’s are some of the main benefits of detoxing with Chlorella:


  1.    Detoxes Heavy Metals

Chlorella is well known for its ability to extract toxins such as mercury, lead and cadmium lurking in your body. These heavy metals are from mercury fillings in teeth, fish you have eaten or vaccinations. To maintain your health it is important to detox such heavy metals before they accumulate in the organs.


  1.    Supports the Immune System

Research conducted by the Yonsei University in Seoul Korea revealed that chlorella has vital nutrients which support healthy immune system. Cell activity was found to improve within eight weeks of regular chlorella intake


  1.    Weight Loss

Sedentary lifestyles and ageing make it difficult to lose weight. Chlorella intake regulates hormones, improves metabolism and helps with circulation. Additionally, the removal of accumulated toxins through a chlorella detox helps to reduce body fat and weight.


  1.    Gives the skin a youthful appearance

Chlorella increases the levels of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and glutathione in the body which protect cells from the harmful effect of free radicals. Additionally chlorella intake reduces stress on the body caused from pollution and a poor diet.


  1.    Guards against cancer

All humans at some stage of their lives develop cancer cells. When immune cells function properly, they are able to destroy these cancer cells before they get dangerous. Chlorella helps in strengthening the immune system so the body responds to cancer and other life-threatening diseases.


Side Effects of Chlorella Detox

If you’re opting for an organic chlorella detox, it’s a good idea to test for allergies to chlorella, especially if you have sensitive skin as you may experience itching or a rash. Other known side effects are vomiting and nausea, although these are less common. Chlorella is high in Vitamin K and patients on blood thinning medication should be careful as the ability of their body to clot blood may be affected. Chlorella detox is best avoided by pregnant women and those sensitive to iodine.

Chlorella is a safe and natural option to a thorough cleanse of your internal systems. A good quality. Chlorella Powder will help you experience for yourself, the health benefits of nutrient rich plant.

    Great post! I have been using chlorella for over three years now, I’m 40 yrs old but my energy levels can be compared to a 25 yrs old. I can clearly feel the difference in my health and would recommend them this to any one who needs a boost.

    I’ve been ill this past few months which makes me very tired and exhausted. But tried using chlorella as part of my daily diet my energy got back and my immune system was revived.

    I have never tried Chlorella before, but because my friend urge me to try it, I decided to give the supplement a shot. After using chlorella for months I’ve noticed a big improvement in my gut and health.

    My friend had tried chlorella in smoothies on 3 occasions which resulted in severe vomiting twice, and once both vomiting and diarrhoea.

    I’ve shared the same smoothies made from the same batch with no problem myself. We have also ruled out any other reactions/allergies to the other smoothie ingredients as we regularly share smoothies with the same ingredients just without the chlorella with no adverse reactions. We have also tried two different brands to rule out a dodgy batch.

    Has anyone else had or heard of similar effects from chlorella and know what may have caused it?
