What is Chlorella?
The Midwives of New Jersey currently recommend Chlorella for several different purposes. Chlorella is a single cell, fresh water green microalgae that is loaded with nutrients. It may support natural detoxification, digestive health, immune function, inflammation reduction, antioxidant function, estrogen balance, cholesterol metabolism, and circulation. It is one of the top nutrients for absorption of toxic metals.
Chlorella assists in the elimination of heavy metals and other toxins. We recommend both men and women de-toxify prior to conception because there is evidence that babies absorb the toxins in their mother’s blood. Newborn cord blood has been found to contain traces of as many as 200 environmental toxins. Chlorella, when consumed by the pregnant woman, draws out these toxins from developing fetuses and assists the mother’s body to excrete them.
Supplementation During Pregnancy
We also recommend Chlorella supplementation to our pregnant clients. Not only can it help reduce the toxic burden to the baby, research from a study conducted in 2010 found that chlorella supplementation during pregnancy was beneficial at reducing anemia, proteinuria (preeclampsia), and edema (swelling/water retention).
As an Anti-Breast Cancer Agent
Recently, a study was published showing chlorella to be an anti-breast cancer agent.
The study is preliminary but since it has other health benefits, there is benefit in recommending broken cell wall chlorella for prevention of breast cancer.
You can order the Chlorella that the Midwives of New Jersey have thoroughly researched and recommend in our on-line store, The Essential Market.
