Chlorella detoxifies against mercury

(NaturalNews) There's mercury everywhere around us, it seems. It's in the food (seafood), the medicines (vaccines) and even the lights (compact fluorescent lights). And that doesn't even cover mercury fillings still used by crazed dentists who insist mercury is "perfectly safe" to chew on!

All the sane people have already figured out that mercury is highly toxic to human health, but how do you get mercury out of your body once you've ingested it?

That's where chlorella enters the picture. This amazing microalgae superfood binds to mercury and helps remove it from your body, safely and naturally. It doesn't get 100% of the mercury out (chelation can help with that), but it does an amazingly good job for a natural, food-based dietary supplement.

I've taken chlorella for over a decade. It's one of the mainstays of my nutritional supplementation (which also includes spirulina and astaxanthin). Learn more about chlorella in this collection of supporting quotes we've compiled for you.


Chlorella is a single-cell, fresh water algae that is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, chlorella growth factor, and other beneficial substances. It is about the size of a human erythrocyte (red blood cell) or about 2-8 microns in diameter. Chlorella is high in chlorophyll, giving it a rich green color. For many years, chlorella has been accepted as a detoxifier, and it is commonly used in colon cleansing regimes. Chlorella appears to bind to heavy metals as well as other toxic substances in the bowel and help with the detoxification process.

There are several species of chlorella. Those most commonly used in nutritional supplements are Chlorella vulgaris and Chlorella pyrenoidosa. Chlorella is rich in protein. In addition, it is rich in chlorophyll, carotenoids, such as astaxanthin, canthaxanthin, flavoxanthin, loraxanthin, neoxanthin and violaxanthin. Chlorella also contains the xanthophyll, echinenone.

In rats, chlorella was found to promote the excretion of dioxin in the feces. The mechanism of this action is unknown. The pharmacokinetics of chlorella in humans have not been studied. However, the proteins, lipids and carbohydrates in chlorella should be digested, absorbed and metabolized by normal physiological processes. A chlorella extract has demonstrated anti-tumor and anti-metastic effects in animal experiments. Chlorella has shown some experimental anti-atherogenic activity and some radioprotective and chemo-detoxifying effects.

Once the mercury burden is lowered from the intestines, mercury from other body tissues will more readily migrate into the intestines where chlorella will effectively remove it. It is the fibrous material in chlorella that has been shown to bind with heavy metals and pesticides like PCBs that can accumulate in our bodies. Chlorella traps toxic metals in the GI tract and acts as an ion exchange resin. Chlorella is a species of unicellular fresh water algae that has been shown to possess detoxifying properties enabling it to assist or support the human detoxification system.
