Ok, so here we go with more healthy info on two green superfoods – spirulina and chlorella.
Most people have heard of chlorella and spirulina, but they don’t really know the details of why these two are truly the best food sources on the planet. For example, did you know that, ounce per ounce, spirulina contains twelve times the digestible protein of beef? If you haven heard about spirulina before its time to wake up and open your eyes and ears, incorporating this to your daily diet could change your life!
Did you know that a phytochemical found in chlorella can actually rebuild nerve damage in the brain and nervous system? That’s why chlorella is being used in the recovery of patients with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Were you aware that both chlorella and spirulina can actually reverse cancer in the human body? Both of these superfoods have been clinically shown to demonstrate stunning preventive and curative properties when it comes to all sorts of cancers.
And finally, did you know that these superfoods also contain a high content of essential fatty acids such as GLA that are routinely missing from the diets of most western diets and yet are critical for healthy brain function?
These are just a few of the benefits that you can look forward to from a daily intake and today you will find spirulina in any health food store. I recommend that you buy this superfood I powder or tablet form, this makes the intake easier for your body and the powder is easily used in smoothies, just mix your favorite fruit and ad a few teaspoons of powder. Or why not try my raw spirulina balls for a treat!
If you are interested in the nutritional breakdown of these two algae I can tell you that you will find high-quality complete protein that is more dense and more digestible than any animal-derived protein. (Chlorella is 58% protein), all the known B vitamins, including vitamin B 12 which is almost never found in plants, Vitamin C and E, macrominerals like calcium, magnesium, zinc, potassium, trace minerals, omega- fatty acids including GLA, mucopolysaccharides, beta-carotene, nucleic acids (RNA & DNA) and at last but not least chlorophyll.
Both chlorella and spirulina are microscopic plants that grow in fresh water. They’re actually called micro-algae, since they are microscopic forms of algae. And they’ve been around for quite some time: a few billion years. These are some of the earliest and simplest life forms on the planet, appearing way before any dinosaurs where stomping around our planet.
