Edens Chlorella features organic chlorella, grown in fresh water (not in dark vats with tap water). This famous, ancient super nutrient was treasured by many cultures for centuries for optimal health and detox.
This natural product contains organic chlorella without added magnesium stearate or other undesirable additives.
It may surprise you to discover that heavy metal poisoning is not that uncommon. Historically, one of the benefits chlorella is famous for is the detoxification of heavy metals, radiation, and chemotherapy. There are many ways in which people are exposed to heavy metals which include lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium. These toxins can be found in polluted air and water, food, food containers, medicines, and in paint. Chlorella has been shown to help to rid the body of these heavy metals, because it binds to them, and prevents them from settling in our soft tissues.
Chlorella is also teeming with important antioxidants which protect the body from free radical damage and oxidative stress. The process of oxidative stress causes mutations in cell DNA, which is a prerequisite for cancer. Because antioxidants prevent this from happening, they have what is called chemopreventive properties. Research has pointed to a powerful cancer-fighting carotenoid antioxidant chlorella called c. ellipsoidea which may protect against colon cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, and others.
Further, chlorella may help to naturally boost immune system function first by providing a healthy gut environment. Since about 70 percent of our immune system cells live in our gut, it’s important to eat prebiotics — foods which support the activity of probiotics — like chlorella. Additionally, one study showed that chlorella stimulates and enhances immune cell, or Natural killer (NK) cell activity. This means that it kicks immune cells into high gear to search out and destroy foreign organisms before they are able to cause damage to the body. Chlorella has been noted to improve response to flu vaccine, prevent colds, and increase white blood cell count.
Studies reveal the potent effect that chlorella has on blood sugar. When either blood sugar or cholesterol levels are too high, a person is at risk for developing a chronic condition that threatens his or her health. Millions of Americans each year are diagnosed with conditions due to high blood sugar or cholesterol, such as diabetes, heart disease, peripheral artery disease, kidney failure, nerve damage, heart attack, or stroke. Studies show that chlorella has hypoglycemic effects — meaning that it is recorded to lower fasting blood sugar levels in people with hyperglycemia. Over time, it also has cholesterol-lowering effects in healthy individuals. One study concluded that it is an ideal supplement for potentially delaying the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Since chlorella is known to support a healthy gut environment, it may help to treat all kinds of gastrointestinal problems including ulcers, colitis, Crohn’s disease, and diverticulosis. Experts recommend its supplementation for all kinds of gut diseases. Chlorella contains potent antioxidants which can help to reduce inflammation — the culprit behind these gastrointestinal problems. It also reportedly supports adrenal function, which may help to reduce cortisol output. At chronically high levels, cortisol, also known as the “stress hormone” can wreak havoc on the body’s systems.
