AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Chlorella capsules and softgels.
Chlorella is one of the oldest known species on Earth and it is a highly sustainable nutrient source as it reproduces multiple times a day and is nutrient dense. It is a single-celled freshwater alga with a hard outer shell that must be broken down in order to make a supplement. Most are grown in Taiwan or Japan.
Chlorella contains a high concentration of chlorophyll, protein, iron, magnesium, and amino acids. Its benefits include detoxification by moving heavy metals in the body without stripping beneficial minerals. Likewise, it also prevents heavy metals from settling in the body in the first place.
It also provides immune system support for the digestive system and ulcers. The detoxification also helps promote weight loss and reduce oxidative stress from pollution, stress, and poor diet and fight aging. It also has cardiovascular benefits by monitoring cholesterol, blood sugar, and glucose levels.
Studies have shown that chlorella can help people regulate their blood sugar metabolism at the genetic level. Among its other benefits include improving a persons response to the flu vaccine, increasing white blood cell count, preventing colds, and fighting against such diseases and conditions as colitis, Crohns disease, and diverticulosis. Moreover, it helps with bad breath, hypertension, promotes cognitive health, relieves PMS symptoms, reduces asthma, and treats fibromyalgia.
Chlorella can be applied to the skin to treat skin conditions such as ulcers, rashes, and trichomoniasis. It is one of the few plant sources for Vitamin B12, which suits those who do consume animal related products. Vitamin B12 is sequestered by the liver and helps to metabolize fats, also helping the body process toxins. Chlorophyll also provides a green clean used previously in toothpaste to produce cleaner teeth and gums.
Those with iodine sensitive thyroid conditions or iodine allergies, a blood clotting disorder, or pregnant women should consult a doctor before use of Chlorella extract. Side effects may include swelling and sunlight sensitivity, fatigue, headaches, and shaking.
