New Research On All-Natural Detox And Liver Health Support
By: Michael Rosenbaum, MD
Essential for good health, the liver often doesn't get the respect it deserves.
We usually jump to the brain or heat when thinking of vital, powerful organs. But the liver should be there, too. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the liver is considered one of the central organs when it comes to good health. And western health experts are increasingly coming to the same conclusion.
An amazing organ, the
· Is the largest internal organ as well as the largest gland in the body.
· Has the unique ability to regenerate itself. Within just a couple weeks, a small portion of the liver - as little as 25% - can grow an entirely new liver.
· Plays a key role in your energy metabolism
And when it comes to detoxing, the liver is your body's toxin removal headquarters.
Using a two-phase process, your liver breaks down toxins like alcohol,
Without a healthy liver, it's impossible for your body to get rid of toxins that are doing you harm!
So if you really want to keep your body clean and healthy from the inside out, taking care of your liver may be one of the best things you can do.
And when it comes to taking care of your liver, new clinical research indicates chlorella may offer powerful nutritional support...
How We Know Chlorella Supports Liver Health
One of the enzymes the liver produces is alanine aminotransferase (ALT). When the liver is stressed, this enzyme level in the blood increases. Doctors test for this enzyme to determine your liver's health. Lower numbers of this enzyme indicate your liver is doing pretty well. New clinical research indicates chlorella may help support healthy liver enzyme levels and thus liver health.
In a 2013 clinical study published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology, 13 participants took chlorella supplements over a 12-week period.
The patients were given the following amounts:
· (3) 500 mg Sun Chlorella tablets 2X per day for the first week and then 3X per day for the remaining 11 weeks.
· 30 ml Sun Chlorella Wakasa Gold 2X per day for the entire 12 weeks.
After 12 weeks, 84.61% of the participants had a statistically significant decrease in their ALT liver enzyme levels. The control group of 26 had no change in ALT liver enzyme levels.
In addition, 76.9% of the participants taking chlorella reported experiencing more energy and 53.9% reported a perception of better health overall.
Research Underscores Chlorella's Detox Power
While this clinical study is relatively small and still preliminary, it adds to our growing understanding of how chlorella helps you feel great. A buildup of toxins can make you feel tired and achy. Toxins can sabotage your immune system, your mood, your memory and even make it harder to lose weight.
Chlorella's role in speeding toxins out of your body is perhaps one of its most distinctive health benefits. A number of studies have already shown chlorella helps your body get rid of heavy metals like nickel and cadmium as well as environmental pollutants like dioxin.
· The unique fibers in chlorella's cell wall bind with certain toxins and help your body remove them. In addition, these fibers help your body get rid of digestive waste.
· Chlorella contains chlorophyll, nature's best cleanser. Chlorella has the highest concentration of this green cleaner on the planet.
But as this research indicates, it seems chlorella's role in supporting your body's cleaning system may go even further . . .
By supporting the health of your liver, your body's chief detoxifying organ, chlorella may play an even bigger role in helping you get rid of toxins. And because of the liver's role in energy metabolism, this study also sheds light on chlorella's revitalizing power.
Want to take care of your liver, help your entire body stay clean and get energized?
As this new research indicates, chlorella may be just what your body needs!
