Chlorella – Benefits of Nature’s finest Superfood

Chlorella is one of the most scientifically researched foods in history. However, it’s unlikely that you have heard of this superfood? It is not highly marketed by big businesses because the profit margins are low. However, chlorella is one of nature’s finest foods, providing you with a rich variety of amino acids (protein), enzymes, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates. In fact, chlorella is thought to contain every nutrient required by the human body.

Here is a partial list of the ingredients found in Chlorella:

  • – High-quality complete protein
  • – All the known B vitamins
  • – Vitamin C
  • – Vitamin E
  • – Beta-carotene
  • – Macrominerals: including calcium, magnesium, zinc, potassium
  • – trace minerals
  • – Mucopolysaccharides
  • – Omega-3 fatty acids including GLA
  • – Nucleic Acids (RNA and DNA)
  • – Chlorophyll

Unfortunately, this superfood is filled with nutritional benefits that most doctors will never tell you about. However, don’t let that detract you from the many health benefits.

  • Relieves arthritis pain
  • Powerful blood cleanse
  • Liver cleanser
  • Anti-cancer agent
  • Strenghtens the immune system
  • Improves your digestive system and decreases constipation.
  • Allows you to focus more clearly and for a longer duration.
  • Helps eliminate bad breath.
  • Balances your body’s pH.
  • Helps remove the heavy metals and other pesticides that are continually invading your body.

One of chlorella’s greatest health benefits is in its ability to neutralize or remove poisonous substances from the body. A number of research projects in the U.S. and Europe have shown that chlorella can aid the body in the breakdown of hydrocarbon and metallic toxins such as DDT, PCB, mercury, cadmium and lead. This detoxification process takes 3-6 months to build up to the point where the body can begin eliminating the years of harmful substances in your body.

However the health benefits don’t stop there. One of chlorella’s main components is chlorophyll. In fact, chlorella contains more chlorophly per gram than any other plant. This chlorophyl is one of the greatest sources for cleansing the bowel and other elimination systems, such as the liver and the blood. Because of this high chlorphyll content, people find that chronic bad breath is often eliminated in just a few days on chlorella.

Chlorella also helps balance your body’s pH. Your body’s ideal pH is about 7.2 – 7.4. Unfortunately, America’s poor diet of junk food, fast food, overcooked, processed foods, and soft drinks have produced a generation of people who are severely imbalanced. The foods mentioned above are several thousand times more acidic than our bodies. This is a crucial point because most diseases begin their life and thrive in an acidic environment and do not live well in an alkaline environment.

Cancer is one of the many diseases that thrives in an acidic environment. Cancer rates have risen steadily and it is now to the point that fully one third of all people in the U.S. will get cancer in their lifetime! The rise in these numbers coincides with the rise of fast food, junk food, and processed foods. Eliminating these toxic foods with whole foods like chlorella will help to virtually eliminate your risk of developing cancer in the future.

How Much Chlorella Should You Take:

Many people take way too little chlorella to be effective. Remember, this is a food, not a drug. If you really want this superfood to be effective, you must take large quantities. It is recommended that you take at least 5 grams at each meal. Take your health to a new level with the many benefits of chlorealla.

Weight Loss Strategies

Picture by: Bigplankton

It’s logic that no one in their right mind would make a conscious decision for being extra heavy, would you?. There are no real benefits for being fat. Being heavy carries so many impractical implications with it that it just can’t be all that much fun.

Chubbiness also restricts general movement of the body. Being flabby makes you feel lethargic, even lazy, but it can certainly encourage you to eat even more of the wrong foods that have got you there in the first place. Comparatively, many obese people do not believe they look as good as they could do and some even develop a dislike or maybe a hate for their own body. Tubbiness certainly doesn’t make you feel as good as you could feel, and some say it even dampens your sex life. But more importantly it increases your risk of ill health – and of that there’s no doubt. It is even believed to reduce your life span. There is an abundance of medical evidence to prove this is so, and the effects of obesity will now be so bad that some believe that a great many of our children of today can be the first generation never to outlive their parents. The truth is hard but simple – being flabby and obese encumbers our lives in so many ways…So why can we allow this to happen, why can we do that to ourselves?

So we now sit in the course of an corpulence epidemic and in reality, no one really wants to be or has chosen to get heavy or obese. And that is despite over 200 million websites of eating habits plans, diet regime pills and diet regime potions. And then there’s the authority suggestion, the medical advice, the recommendation of nutritionists and untold food intake companies – all unusually wanting to take your custom. So what isn’t working? We only have to take in the moment and pause…look around us to see that something is obviously very very wrong. And do the government want it for being so? I don’t believe so, as heaviness costs our nation billions of dollars a year. It is perhaps more the case that they are not really sure of how to tackle this self inflicted epidemic, which is second only to smoking in the stakes of measurable loss of life.

So why? Why do we intentionally inflict this self induced ‘illness’ upon ourselves? Incredibly, despite the fact we know which foods we must always eat, we know which foods are good for us and we know which are the ‘badies’. But despite all this, we still eat too much and too much of the wrong stuff. We still self inflict the misery of obesity upon ourselves.

If a close friend appeared for being alarmed and severe in telling you that the food you were almost to eat, contained the deadly poison arsenic in it, your natural reaction that i see to stop ‘dead in your tracks’ or at the least hesitate to confirm. Are they kidding? Do they mean it? And that could be our dilemma in a nut shell. We don’t experience an immediate or real threat to our lives when we are eating what is deemed to get food that is certainly ‘bad’ for us. Some processed foods, most fast foods and all junk foods. we are accustomed to eating it and our ‘egos’ accepts it and therefore there is no threat to our instinctive survival mechanisms. Our primeval instinct to survive does not ‘see’ eating as a threat to life itself. we are natural eating ‘machines’. And so if our ‘egos’ accepts it – we do.

Is there an option to do nothing as an individual? Can we allow to wait for the miracle ‘diet regime drug’ to stem our appetite? Only you can decide. But would you want to be on ‘diet drugs’ for the rest of your life – day in day out drug dependent just for the sake of…eating? Experts say most would not and it almost sounds ludicrous to even consider the option. There is another method…and that could be to go back to basics.

We have existed on this planet for well over 2,000,000 years and for 99.5 percent of the time we survived well as the hunter and gatherer, and proudly became head of the food chain. No, I’m not suggesting in any shape or form that we must go back to living a ‘cave man’ life style, (even though it would probably be healthier!), but I am suggesting we must learn from our genetic inheritance. It is suggested that 99% of our nutritional genes have remained unchanged over that humongous period of time, and yet our diet in the last 50 years has changed beyond all recognition. Totally.

Who are we, apart from just mere mortals to ever think we are able to dictate to ‘Mother Nature’ in providing today’s diet regime, when man’s body has changed and mutated over million years of evolution to accept what is now thought being a much narrower range of ‘acceptable foods’. Our body is doing and saying what it has always done over hundreds and thousands of generations before us, and yet we elect not to listen. We choose to ignore the signs and believe “I’ll be alright”. Our ancestors left us a heritage of which we must be proud – but sadly we are failing to leave anything like as comparable.

For now, obesity still remains a matter of choice…but choice means a decision.

Diet vs Cleanse – Healthy Weight Loss

Detoxing the Body helps to Loose Weight

Henry Gray Anatomy of the Human Body

Illustration by Henry Gray

Cleansing has always had a place among humans, throughout all ages and cultures. For thousands of years, body purification has been a part of our rituals for health and well-being. It was also used in ancient times as a way to reconnect with the divine. Diets have just been in vogue during the last 150 years or so. You can look at the word diet in different ways. It has that painful reference to cutting way back on all the foods you love. It also can refer to a set of foods you allow yourself to consume without limit.

Recently diet products and supplements have turned into diet "systems". Diet products used to just burn fat or boost your metabolism so you burned more calories. They were fat burners. Now diet systems involve a cleanse portion as well, a metabolism booster and sometimes a natural appetite suppressant like Hoodia. So, what is the best way to healthy weight loss?

Let's talk about what a colon cleanse can do for healthy weight loss. Detox or cleansing is a way to clean out all the toxins, environmental pollutants, and wastes from all the drugs, toxins and chemicals ingested into our bodies. Think about all environmental poisoning from just the pesticides, insecticides and other contaminants that are on most of our foods. Think about all the chemicals in our air and water, food additives in processed food, antibiotics and more that we absorb into our cells. These environmental toxins and stresses assault our liver, blood and colon on a daily basis.

Our liver removes many of these toxins, but in today's world our liver is overloaded it just keeps dumping toxins into our colon and blood systems because it can't take the toxic load we are giving it. Repeated exposure to these toxins, pesticides, and antibiotics can take its toll on the body resulting in suppressed immune systems, unexplained aches, depression, weight gain, loss of memory, and low levels of energy.

"The colon is a sewage system, but by neglect and abuse it becomes a cesspool. When it is clean and normal, we are well and happy; let it stagnate, and it will distill the poisons of decay, fermentation and putrefaction into the blood, poisoning the brain and nervous system so that we become mentally depressed and irritable; it will poison the heart so that we are weak and listless; poisons the lungs so that the breath is foul; poisons the digestive organs so that we are distressed and bloated; and poisons the blood so that the skin is sallow and unhealthy. In short, every organ of the body is poisoned, and we age prematurely, look and feel old, the joints are stiff and painful, neuritis, dull eyes and a sluggish brain overtake us; the pleasure of living is gone."

Dr. Bernard Jensen Healthy weight loss starts with a colon cleanse. If the colon is cleansed on a regular basis it is better able to absorb nutrients into our cells. If our colon is full of compacted old waste it absorbs very little of the actual nutrients we eat. That is why the body keeps telling you that you are hungry and calls for more food. It is a vicious cycle. Healthy weight loss that lasts, comes from fine tuning your system, starting with a colon cleanse. A good colon cleanse will eliminate most sugar and salt cravings making that healthy weight loss even easier!

To keep your body running in top shape with high energy levels you should consider a colon, liver, blood and kidney cleanse once every three months or once every season. You can also buy some "health assurance" by adding a green superfood to your diet daily. That is what I call a diet! By: Marty Meshek Marty Meshek is a natural cleansing and energy specialist.

Five Foods for Health and Weight Loss

Healthy Weight Loss

Time to loose some weight?Most people today have never heard about eating well and eating healthy foods. Nobody has taught what is really healthy for us and sometimes it takes a while to rid ourselves off the convenience of packaged, precooked and otherwise processed food. Only during the past 6 years we are hearing about how important good nutrition is and about superfoods that can prolong our live and much more. However, the benefits, of making a change towards eating healthy foods are numerous. We should take the time to find out what foods taste good to us and start including them in our daily foods. Trust your body, it knows what it needs. Implementing and eating healthy foods in your daily diet promises more success than the common crash dieting and sudden extreme food changes that many weight loss programs suggest.

With this in mind, we can start substituting food that we love but that isn’t so good for our health and body weight, with far healthier alternatives. This is a great way to start this process.

Here are five examples of changes you can make in your diet that can improve both, your health and your waistline:

Yogurt: A great superfood is plain yogurt because it has a balanced amounts of carbs, fat, and protein. Yogurt can satiate you while keeping your blood sugar levels stable for many hours.

In a study from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, subjects on a low-calorie diet that included yogurt lost 61 percent more fat overall and 81 percent more belly fat than people on a similar plan but without yogurt.

Nevertheless, it is important to stick with plain, organic yogurt because sweetened yogurt can have more sugar than ice cream.

  • Yogurt makes a great substitute for sour cream and mayonnaise in dips and as a topping for potatoes, soups, and mexican food.
  • I like to eat plain yogurt, add some berries, an apple and a spoon of honey and mix it all up. That’s a great substitute for ice cream.

Almond Butter: If you’re in love with peanut butter, try Almond butter. Almond butter tastes as rich but it is much better for you. Studies have shown that eating bread with almond butter lowers the glycemic index of the bread, even white bread, so that it keeps blood sugar levels low. Almonds are also a great source of protein, amino acids, and vitamins. They are great for digestion and help keep the body from becoming too acidic.

  • Put it on bread and crackers instead of peanut butter.
  • Add some almond butter to your oatmeal for protein.
  • Make a sauce or dipp for stir fried veggies and serve with brown rice.

Quinoa: This superfood comes from Peru and is high in fiber and protein as well as an almost complete source of amino acids. It keeps you full longer than pasta or rice, is versatile, and it’s greatto keep a pot will stay fresh all week.

  • Use Quinoa as substitute for rice with stir fried, fish, or meat.
  • Quinoa can be added to many salads.
  • In Peru it’s often eaten as a morning cereal with a bit of milk and honey or chopped fruit and nuts.

Sardines: With levels of mercury rocketing sky high in tuna and many wild fish and pollution concerns with farmed fish, sardines are a natural and super healthy answer. Packed full of omega 3 fatty acids and extremely high in calcium, sardines are also low on the food and mercury chain. Many people shy away from sardines because they taste ‘fishy’ but this can be solved by soaking them in milk for an hour or so. Substitutions:

  • Use sardines instead of anchovies in dressings, in ceasar salads, and on pizza.
  • Use chopped sardines in place of tuna in cold and hot sandwiches.

Berries: Most especially, acai berries blueberries and goji berries are the best fruits to be eating right now. Blueberries are high in antioxidants and fiber, while goji berries contain 18 of the 20 amino acids needed by the human body, making them a great source of protein and more beta carotene than carrots.

  • Instead of bananas in your cereal or oatmeal, try blueberries. Unlike bananas which can spike blood sugar, blueberries help keep insulin levels stable while providing a wide range of nutrients.
  • You can add dried acai or goji berries to a mixture of nuts to boost your stamina trail mix or add them to green tea for tartness, they are nice to eat after you have finished the tea.
