Green Super Foods such as Spirulina, Chlorella, and Blue-Green
Algae all contain chlorophyll, protein, vitamin B-12, essential
fatty acid GLA, trace minerals and other nutrients in a form that
is easily assimilated by the human body. These green foods are one
of the four basic supplements that I recommend for health.
Green cleans. It helps to purify the liver and eliminate toxins
from food additives, pesticides, fertilizers, and drugs. It is also
helpful in removing heavy metals from the body.
In terms of colon health, chlorophyll is a natural antiseptic to
the intestinal tract. It helps stop the growth and development of
toxic bacteria in the colon and throughout the body. Chlorophyll
relieves constipation by promoting action in the muscles of the
colon walls. It also helps rebuild damaged colon tissue and eliminate
mucus buildup from improper diet.
In diabetics, green super foods have helped regulate blood sugar
and delay accelerated development of cardiovascular disease by reducing
the susceptibility of LDL cholesterol to oxidation. This is significant
since it is the oxidized cholesterol that clogs our arteries.
Spirulina and Blue-Green Algae have long been used to increase
energy, treat cancer and chronic fatigue, and generally stimulate
the immune system. Theres enough interest in micro-algae that
anti-tumor, antiviral, and immune stimulating extracts from the
super green foods have been isolated and patented.
