How Does It Work?
The freshwater algae
in Sun Is Shining
™ has amazing detoxification potential. Chlorella
has been known to help alleviate heavy metal toxicity. One study in particular proved that chlorella helps the body rid itself of cadmium, concluding that “when exposed to Cd (cadmium), chlorella is an appropriate source which counteracts heavy metal poisoning.”1
Another found that “continuous BP [chlorella (parachlorella beijerinckii)] intake accelerates the excretion of MeHg [methylmecury] and subsequently decreases tissue Hg [mercury] levels.”2
Spirulina has been known to help with radiation detoxification: One research study showed that children with radiation sickness “reduced urine radioactivity levels by 50% in only 20 days” with five grams of spirulina administered per day, confirming “the beneficial health effects of spirulina on children with radiation sickness.”3
The anti-oxidative power of wheatgrass was found to be an “effective and safe” treatment for ulcerative colitis.4 The Hippocrates Health Institute also found that wheat grass is “a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector” that can “stimulate metabolism…restore alkalinity…neutralize toxins… [and] slow down the aging process.”5
The sea vegetable known as kelp was found to cause a “positive reaction in hepatic [liver] cells” in subjects with carcinogen exposure.6 Another study also confirmed that a chemical characteristic of brown seaweed [kelp] has “protecting effects on the liver” as well as “antioxidant, anti-inflammatory…[and] anti-obese” activities.7
