The health benefits of chlorella are vast, as a google search will quickly overwhelm you with information and research references!! The main ones cited are extraordinary detoxification properties, provision of essential minerals and protein – great support for those who do not eat meat or who are trying to cut down their meat consumption and likewise for those trying to cut down on sweets and other highly addictive foods...
“Chlorella has been touted as the perfect whole food. Aside from being a complete protein and containing all the B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, and the major minerals (with zinc and iron in amounts large enough to be considered supplementary), it has been found to improve the immune system, improve digestion, detoxify the body, accelerate healing, protect against radiation, aid in the prevention of degenerative diseases, help in treatment of Candida albicans, relieve arthritis pain and, because of its nutritional content, aid in the success of numerous weight loss programs.”
