Can Chlorella Cleanse the Body of Heavy Metals
What specialists have to say about chlorella against heavy metals intoxication?
We are going through some strange times in terms of health and lifespan… we are surrounded by toxic, lethal substances and there is nothing we can actually do about it. Let’s take mercury as an example: it’s present in our food (especially seafood), it is a compound of vaccines and in the dental filings we all hate but need. More and more specialists and people worried about their health realize how toxic this heavy metal is, ho it manages its way in our bodies, but they also worried about how to get rid of mercury after this has accumulated in our bodies. Scientists have conducted many researches and they came up with one answer: chlorella.
What Is A Chlorella SuperFood
If you Google Chlorella is listed as superfoood and it’s an alga that has the ability to bind to mercury and safely remove it from the body, in the most natural ways. “Chlorella is a single-cell, fresh water algae that is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, chlorella growth factor, and other beneficial substances. It is about the size of a human erythrocyte (red blood cell) or about 2-8 microns in diameter.” Disease Prevention and Treatment by The Life Extension Editorial Staff. The same study says about chlorella that “Chlorella is high in chlorophyll, giving it a rich green color. For many years, chlorella has been accepted as a detoxifier, and it is commonly used in colon cleansing regimes. Chlorella appears to bind to heavy metals as well as other toxic substances in the bowel and help with the detoxification process.”
The most utilized forms of chlorella are Chlorella vulgaris and Chlorella pyrenoidosa. These are the commonly used and most rich in protein forms of chlorella, and also the most used in nutritional supplements. “In addition, it is rich in chlorophyll, carotenoids, such as astaxanthin, canthaxanthin, flavoxanthin, loraxanthin, neoxanthin and violaxanthin. Chlorella also contains the xanthophyll, echinenone” (PDR for Nutritional Supplements by Sheldon Saul Hendler and David Rorvik). The same publication explains: “In rats, chlorella was found to promote the excretion of dioxin in the feces. The mechanism of this action is unknown. A chlorella extract has demonstrated anti-tumor and anti-metastic effects in animal experiments. Chlorella has shown some experimental anti-atherogenic activity and some radioprotective and chemo-detoxifying effects.”
The Transdermal Magnesium Therapy by Mark Sircus continues and manages to explain us more: “Once the mercury burden is lowered from the intestines, mercury from other body tissues will more readily migrate into the intestines where chlorella will effectively remove it.”
“In a report to the General Meeting of the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan on an early study in animals, Ichimura (1973) reported that chlorella (8 grams daily) increased elimination of cadmium: threefold in feces and sevenfold in urine. Other researchers from Japan showed that “chlorella” helped detoxify uranium and lead (Horikoshi et al. 1979). Chlorella has detoxification potential for similar compounds, such as dioxin and polychlorinated biphenyls. (PCBs are chemical compounds used in plastics, insulation, and flame retardants, with potential to cause cancer and liver damage.)” – Disease Prevention and Treatment by The Life Extension Editorial Staff
These are only a few publications behind some rough studies conducted by specialists whose only purpose in their career was to find a worthy ally in the fight against heavy metals diseases. There are hundreds and studies and publications on this subject and they all prove us, once again, how nature has its own ways to take care of us.

Gore, The Natural Physician’s Healing Therapies by Mark Stengler, N.D. are only a few of the publications on chlorella. We tried to mention the most important ones in this article, but we promise to keep you up to date on everything that’s new and relevant on chlorella subject.
