Chlorella is a freshwater algae which has a higher chlorophyll content than any other plant including alfalfa. After the Second World war Japan faced a huge shortage of nutrients and the government there collaborated with the Rockefeller Foundation to grow and harvest chlorella algae on a wide, commercially-viable scale in order to solve this problem Since then a number of research projects in the U.S and Europe have suggested that it can clean and detoxify cells in the body. It seems to have the ability to neutralize, or otherwise rid the body of, poisons such as mercury accrued from,among other things, the good old amalgam fillings which most of us over 40 can remember our dentists cheerfully filling our teeth cavities with, although some countries like Germany have, we have heard, “severely restricted” their use. Chlorella benefits seem to extend to a wide variety of ailments and conditions and is definitely one of the supplements that should be included in any discussion on natural detox tips.

Chlorella can be very useful in detoxification of the body. Since most toxins get removed through the stool, and because chlorella binds to the toxins, many natural health researchers and some doctors, believe that chlorella can play a vital role in systemic detoxification.
