Kick Heavy Metals and Radiation to the Curb

Kick Heavy Metals and Radiation to the Curb

Apr 30th 2014

Like it or not, toxins are out there. But that doesn't mean you can't do something about it! One superfood can help you give daily toxins the boot, and give your body a regenerating spring cleaning!

Lighten Up on the Heavy Metals

The unfortunate truth is that environmental contamination of heavy metals are almost impossible to avoid. For example, the EPA states that “almost all people have at least trace amounts of methylmercury [an organic compound and environmental toxin] in their tissues, reflecting methylmercury’s widespread presence in the environment.”1 The effects on the human nervous system can lead to “impaired neurological development” in fetuses, infants and children.1

The good news is that there is a natural way to detoxify: the amazing microalgae chlorella. And we’ve got the very best chlorella: raw, non-GMO and extensively tested to be free of any contamination.Chlorella TabletsChlorella has been scientifically proven to help mitigate heavy metal toxicity. One study found that “continuous BP [chlorella (parachlorella beijerinckii)] intake accelerates the excretion of MeHg [methylmecury] and subsequently decreases tissue Hg [mercury] levels.”2 The power of chlorella to combat heavy metals is not limited to mercury. Another study found 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.”3

Bye-Bye Radiation

Yet another pervasive source of toxicity is radiation. It was recently reported that radiation from the 2011 Fukushima disaster has hit the U.S. west coast and is in our food supply, specifically in fish, sea vegetables and crops growing near the Pacific Ocean.4 It is likely that the human health effects of the Fukushima disaster will take years to fully ascertain, but it doesn’t make sense to wait for symptoms of radiation sickness to appear. Protect yourself with chlorella early, and your body will thank you.

One study observed that chlorella produced “a significant radio-protective effect” against both acute and chronic radiation damage.5 Another study found that chlorella increased survival rates among mice who were irradiated with lethal doses of gamma rays, concluding that “stem cells in the bone marrow and spleen of mice (CFUs) increased, as did their survival after irradiation.”6“Daily necessity! These are my fave brand of chlorella, always super fresh. I take them daily and up my intake whenever I'm travelling or exposed to increased radiation.” – Natasha “Very satisfied so far! Best chlorella tablets I've tried!” – Keisi Chlorella Tablets

Watch Out: Not All Chlorella is Pure

Raw, certified non-GMO, and broken cell wall (to facilitate absorption), our chlorella is extensively tested to be free of contaminants such as heavy metals and radiation. It's incredibly important to be sure that your source of detox is completely pure, free of the contaminants you’re striving to release.

Our chlorella is also the most powerful strain of chlorella, Chlorella pyrenoidosa, boasting an abundance of nutrients such as chlorophyll (which gives it that beautiful emerald green color), vitamin A, iron, zinc, B vitamins and 66% protein by weight! Last but definitely not least, our chlorella contains no binders or fillers. It’s just pure chlorella in tablet form that you can chew out of the bag, blend in smoothies, or simply swallow with water. It’s a super easy way to detox!

What People Are Experiencing from our Chlorella

“I took the chlorella tablets for 6 months, I took about 25 a day and when I went for my 6-month check up / blood work, I got the best results I've ever had! Almost perfect blood work, I was so impressed, and so was my doctor. I'm going to continue taking them for life.” – Kimberly

“I've been eating this chlorella for a couple of months to cleanse myself while at the same time re-mineralize my body. My energy levels are high all day and I sleep better at night. Love this stuff!!” – Anthony “Works great! Satisfied with this product. High quality as compared with other chlorella on the market.” – Jennifer
