Spirulina Chlorella benefits are numerous and why it’s one of our detoxification protocols here at An Oasis of Healing.
Spirulina and Chlorella are part of the seaweed family. When most people think of seaweed, they think of Japanese cuisine or a seaweed salad. Seaweed has significant detoxification aspects as well as many anti-cancer benefits.
There are four major types of seaweed and they are all known as algae. Algae is a marine plant that we have lumped together and titled it seaweed. There are brown, green, red and blue-green algae.
All four groups of algae have significant anti-cancer benefits. For example, studies have shown that red algae boost interferon levels encouraging the immune system to attack cancer cells.
Brown algae has been shown to encourage apoptosis within cancer cells. Apoptosis is normal cell death. Today, we’re going to focus on Spirulina, a blue-green algae, and Chlorella a green algae.
Chlorella is a very sustainable product. It reproduces eight times per day. And because of this, it can be harvested very easily without causing damage to the ecosystem.
Chlorella is used to bind to various chemicals in the body like heavy metals or cell die off. This green algae binds to these chemicals and flushes them out through the system.
Chlorella contains a large number of nucleic acids. It is a great antioxidant and high in vitamins A, D, E and K and contains a good amount of minerals including iron.
Spirulina Chlorella Benefits are not only with Detoxification but helps fight against Cancer as well!
Chlorella is incredibly nutrient dense and even contains essential fatty acids. In order for this algae to be absorbed effectively, the cell walls have to be cracked.
The source we use here at An Oasis of Healing has cracked cell walls allowing 82.8% to be absorbed according to studies. In a study conducted in 2012, chlorella was shown to induce interferon gamma and interferon beta1 as well as increase Th1 cytokines and interleukin 12.
Ultimately, this has major anti-cancer benefits in terms of the immune system. Chlorella is unique in that it has the detoxification benefits as well as the anti-cancer benefits.
Spirulina is a blue-green algae and is extremely nutrient dense. It contains lots of vitamins and mineral and essential fatty acids. Spirulina has 26 times the amount of calcium found in milk. Who said you can’t get enough calcium on a vegan diet?
It helps modulate blood glucose, lower cholesterol levels naturally and supports the immune system and healthy metabolism. Spirulina and chlorella have numerous benefits making them an essential part of our cancer care program.
The important things to look for when searching for these two algae’s are whether the cell walls are cracked in the case of chlorella and what is the source of the seaweed? Has the seaweed been exposed to heavy metals or Fukushima radiation?
The source you choose is very important so don’t stop short in researching the source and verifying what you have and put in your body. An Oasis of Healing sources only the best and highest quality sources for all the treatments and therapies used here.
