MEGA GREENS: CHLORELLA, KLAMATH, SPIRULINA
Natural Greens Supplement by Dee Cee LabsSpirulina is a blue-green algae found in saline lakes and ponds in Central and South America and Africa, and is used throughout the world as a nutritional supplement. Spirulina has similar properties to Chlorella, but it is higher in protein. Spirulina contains chlorophyll, which is essential in maintaining healthy digestion and cleansing the bowels.
Benefits of Taking SpirulinaSpirulina also contains 65-70% vegetable protein.
The protein contained in Spirulina is especially beneficial, as it contains none of the harmful fats or cholesterol found in meat. It also contains a host of vitamins and nutrients, and is one of the few non-meat sources of Vitamin B12. Spirulina is especially high in beta-carotene, calcium, iron, niacin, and phosphorus. Spirulina is used for health rejuvenation and weight reduction, and is considered an excellent blood and colon cleanser.
Spirulina: Most Nutritious Substance Spirulina is possibly the most nutritious substance known to man. Adding Spirulina to cultured immune system cells significantly increases the production of infection fighting cytokines, say immunologists at UC Davis School of Medicine and Medical Center. Their finding was published in the Journal of Medicinal Foods. A number of animal studies have shown Spirulina to be an effective immunomodulator (an agent that can effect the behavior of immune cells). In rats, Spirulina inhibited allergic reactions by suppressing the release of histamine in a dose-dependent fashion. In cats, Spirulina enhanced the ability of macrophages to engulf bacteria, and in chickens Spirulina increased antibody responses and the activity of natural killer cells, which destroy infected and cancerous cells in the body.
While extensive human studies have not been done, several reports also suggest Spirulina has therapeutic effects on hyperlipidemia and obesity. In one study, Spirulina decreased total serum cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, while increasing high-density lipoprotein.
Spirulina Can Boost Immune SystemA 1986 study of obese patients showed a significant reduction of body weight after including Spirulina in the diet for four weeks. In the UC Davis study, researchers evaluated the secretion of the cytokines interferon-gamma, interleukin-4, and interleukin-1beta in the lab to get a better understanding of Spirulina's potential regulatory effect on the immune system.
A protein-rich vegetable food source, high in essential nutrients.
Benefits of Taking ChlorellaChlorella can promote cell reproduction, reduce cholesterol and increase
hemoglobin levels. Since chlorella is such a broad-spectrum product, it
can help to support and repair organs and tissues that have been
injured by a variety of causes. Chlorella is very high in RNA and DNA,
and has been found to protect against the effects of ultraviolet
Chlorella can have a strengthening effect on body cells by supporting
the functioning of our metabolic pathways. Because of the chlorophyll in
chlorella, it can help improve the cleansing of the bloodstream. In
numerous studies, Chlorella was added to the diet of mice with a 'fatty
liver'. After supplementation of their diet during extended period there
was a significant reduction in this fatty condition.
