Chlorella-The Complete Food Supplement

I started a new job at a health food store and came across a supplement that I'd heard about so many times, but just couldn't remember what it was for. It's called Chlorella and the effects it has on your body is just amazing.

Usually when recommending a supplement program for someone just starting out I always try to build them up (vitamins, minerals, etc..) first. Then I allow for a cleanse. If you don't do it in this order you will most certainly suffer a healing crisis. In other words, you'll feel worse before you feel better.

So when I saw this herb, or should I say algae, I was intrigued because it has building and cleansing capabilities. The cleansing doesn't begin until 3-4 months after being on the supplement, so there's no need to worry about a healing crisis.

I recommend all vegetarians to take this supplement. It's a complete protein with all 8 amino acids, and is more bioavailable than proteins in meat. They are already broken down into separate amino acids allowing for immediate digestion and uptake.

Read the link on Chlorella and learn about all the wonderful benefits of this complete food supplement. You'll wonder how you survived without it.

"all 8" amino acids?
ahem, perhaps the pages where you studied biochemistry were torn in half?

I'm sorry John I was mistaken. It's 9 essential amino acids that are crucial. The other 12 we make ourselves. "Proteins are composed of amino acids, 12 of which are manufactured by the human body. Another 9, called essential amino acids, must he obtained from food. Most animal products, such as meat and dairy products, contain all of the essential amino acids and have been designated as containing complete proteins. Most proteins from vegetables also contain all 9 essential amino acids, but 1 or 2 may be low in a particular food compared with a protein from most animal sources. Beans, however, are rich sources of all essential amino acids."
Does that answer your question?

I thought the cleansing came immediately with chlorella. I know it can take months to remove all heavy metals but I believe detox effects are immediate. I take it and this is what I have experienced as well as all others that I have spoken to.

@Anon Everyone has different results with supplements. If someone has a cleansing effect immediately that usually means they have a more sensitive digestive tract. I've known people to take cleansing supplements and say they felt nothing. I'm glad you've had a good experience with it. I recommend it to everyone as a builder and gentle cleanser. If they experience rapid cleaning they just need to lower the dose and take it with more food to slow the absorption.

Thanks for the comment!
