Stimulate your liver health with Chlorella!
The property of detoxifying poisoning substances from the accumulation of toxins in the body is one of the important differences between chlorella and other “green” wholefoods. In turn, the detoxification of harmful materials also means stimulation of the liver functions.
After the heart, the liver is the most vital organ in the body. It has the extraordinary task to fulfill over 500 functions! A weak liver, therefore, can be the source of many chronic health problems. Gallbladder problems, bloating, constipation, sleepiness after meals, constant fatigue, sleep disorders, frequent migraine, dizziness, heart palpitations, poor memory, confusion, vision deficiency, skin problems, allergies, arthritis, frequent numbness in the extremities, swollen joints, frequent infections and fainting are just a few examples of what may result when the liver is stressed.
In addition, women’s health problems such as uterine fibroids, chronic vaginal discharge, ovarian cysts, endometriosis and painful menstruation may also result from a weakened liver.
Stress can cause liver weakness, as can eating too much refined flour, refined sugar, deep fried foods, caffeine or ice cold foods or drinks. Most pharmaceutical drugs such as tranquilizers, sleeping pills and antihistamines also weaken the liver when taken more than occasionally.
It is hard to believe that the typical liver size of a modern person is enlarged to at least twice of what it should be if healthy, from the storage of undesirable toxins!
The liver regulates blood circulation, detoxification, the excretion of foreign substances, hormone levels, and the metabolism of nutrients. It also regulates body functions that affect emotional and mental activities. If stress or negative feelings such as anger, frustration, and anxiety affect the liver, its vitality may be repressed. On the other hand, a weakened liver may be the cause of irritability, anger, and aggressiveness. Depression is an indication of blocked liver energy.
Liver deficiency is also a factor in aging, according to Chinese medicine. Therefore vitality, anti-aging and good health very much relies on proper functioning of the liver. Without an efficient liver and healthy kidneys, the blood cannot be filtered properly. “Dirty” blood, loaded with toxins or waste byproducts, becomes heavier and more sluggish. Poor circulation and reduced capacity to carry oxygen and nutrients then occur. As a result, tissue and organ cells become undernourished.
Persistence of such condition may lead to cell deterioration and aging.The eyes and brain will be especially affected since the blood has to flow against gravity to reach them. In an article on disease in the January 1988 issue of The Mayo Clinic health letter, malfunctions of the liver and kidneys were linked among the causes leading to the disease.
By removing toxic substances from the body, chlorella has been shown to protect the liver from toxic injury as well as from alcohol absorption. As a matter of fact, the enhancement by chlorella of the liver detoxification was shown – from the study of Dr. Fukui of Shapporo Medical University- to promote the removal of alcohol by the liver and to prevent alcohol hangover up to 96% when 4-5 grams of chlorella are taken before drinking! A decreased urge for drinking has been also subsequently reported by previous alcoholics.
Chlorella also strengthens the functions of the liver and its health by nourishing it with the proper nutrients it requires. Chlorella increases the liver’s ability to remove fungi, bacteria and poisons from the blood. Studies have also shown elevated levels of albumin and decreased levels of globulin while taking chlorella, which is what you would expect to see when the liver is working more efficiently.
Colon health & digestion are also in Chlorella’s domain!
Chronic constipation, bowel and colon toxicity, impaired digestion are major concerns afflicting the population of industrialized countries, particularly when people attain an older age. Very few people are aware that the same number of bowel movements as the number of meals per day is required for the foundation to weight loss, anti-aging & health, and that a healthy intestine should not hold more than two meals at a time. Often overlooked or passed off as symptoms that happen with age, these conditions should however be seriously considered as true health endangerment!
Besides infrequent and hard stools, bloating and gas, constipation can cause overweight, bad breath, bad body odors, headaches, acne, fatigue, stomach acid, acid reflux syndrome, nausea, etc.Despite being a slow process, years of constipation can eventually lead to the poisoning of the bloodstream; to sluggish liver functions and low energy level; to removal of the gallbladder; to the development of pancreatitis, hypoglycemia and even to breast and colon cancer, the leader of all cancers.
The accumulated toxins, sometimes called “mucoid plaque”, can become lodged or stuck in the lining of our intestinal tract, forming layers of old, dried fecal matter and mucus. An average person can collect between 4-25 pounds of this intestinal toxic built-up in their colon…and unless actions are taken, it can just keep growing over the years! As a matter of fact, when John Wayne died of colon cancer, his bowel contained about 80 lbs of trapped fecal material!!
Besides slowing down intestinal action, bowel movements and also limiting and preventing nutrient absorption & assimilation, this plaque constitutes an heaven for pathogens, including bacteria and parasites, viruses and diseases. Poisoning of the bloodstream, weakened immune system, allergies, chronic health problems, impaired organ functions, weight gain & aging are all part of the domino effect on our health. Colon & bowel cleansing, optimum digestion are the keys to the best and most durable results for weight loss, anti-aging or health improvement.
As we mentioned earlier Chlorella contains more chlorophyll than any other plant. Dr. Young and Beregi have reported that when chlorophyll was given to nursing home patients chronic constipation was relieved.
Chlorella’s fibrous material stimulates and gradually strengthens the intestinal lining, promotes normal peristalsis and eventually eliminates constipation.
Besides containing digestive enzymes, Chlorella also multiplies by four times the number of healthy bacteria – such as lactobacillus, streptococci and bididofidus – in the intestinal micro flora, therefore greatly improving digestion and constipation problems.
Symptoms such as abdominal bloating and flatulence due to gas, foul smelling gas and stools fermenting within the system, sluggish feelings and sagging spirits would be shortly alleviated and eliminated as the peristalsis is strengthened.
The assimilation of nutrients is improved, invigorating both the body and mind. Having a great digestion after every meal should be the only way to live! Cleansing the bowel and colon, combined with a healthy diet are the key determining factors to an optimum weight control, anti-aging health program.
But because Chlorella is a natural wholefood, not a medicine, it has the unique ability to synergically balance and normalize body functions. Not only can people who suffer from constipation experience an alleviation of their symptoms, but people who suffer from diarrhea or from ulcerative colitis experience improvement as well!
According to a research study from Virginia Commonwealth University conducted on people suffering from inflammatory bowel disease and colitis, a sixty percent reduction in symptoms and inflammation occured after they added Chlorella to their diets.
At a holistic level, by enhancing the body’s defenses, Chlorella helps the healing process.
Chlorophyll has also been proven effective against anemia, as it stimulates the production of red blood cells in the body. It also brings more oxygen to the blood and the brain.
The cleansing action of Chlorella on the bowel, colon, liver and the entire bloodstream can regenerate the body and restore out of balance body functions back to harmony. Potent and bio-available, yet gentle and safe, Chlorella, as an all natural wholefood, and as a “biological response modifier” can restaure the proper functions of the body without any laxative herbs, such as Cascara Sagrada or Senna, toxic binders or fillers.
In turn, this bodily rejuvenation allow us to think and focus more clearly! Imagine the positive health effects, the general feeling of well being, stamina, lightness of the body and raising of the spirits that generally derive from colon & bowel cleansing… Aren’t these changes priceless?
