I have to pay attention to my body. When I was shot the bullet hit many of my organs and it did not exit my body. The bullet is lodged in my back, to be more precise it is in my spine. Fragments of the bullet are in my Liver and Kidneys. There is no surprise that there are toxins in my body because I have a bullet and its fragments in my body. This is toxic to the body because the bullet slowly exudes lead into bodily tissues.
The idea that bullets can cause lead poisoning might seem obvious to trivia nerds who knew that bullets were made of lead. And to people who knew that the threshold for what constitutes lead “toxicity,” or “poisoning,” has plummeted over the decades. Having 60 micrograms of lead per deciliter of blood used to be the cutoff for what was considered safe. In 1971 that fell to 40, and later to 20, then 10, then five (as of 2015). As lead-exposure data has improved, subtle signs have revealed themselves—to the point that the new consensus on lead poisoning among many experts is that there is no “safe” amount of lead in one’s bloodstream.
This leads me to todays topic – Things to shuttle toxins out of the body!
I have been looking into things that will help me do this. I have found that Chlorella has that supper power. Chlorella is a type of algae that packs a big nutrient punch, as it’s a good source of several vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. In fact, emerging research shows that it could help shuttle toxins out of your body and improve cholesterol and blood sugar levels, among other health benefits.
Chlorella is one of the oldest plants on the planet — it dates back 2 million years! It’s a single-celled, green algae that gets its green color from chlorophyll. It doesn’t take much for chlorella to grow: carbon dioxide, sunlight, a few nutrients and water. That’s it.
The name chlorella comes from the Greek word chloros, which means green, and the Latin word ella, which means small.
While this green algae may be small, it’s BIG on nutrition. Here’s what this superfood is packing:
Protein: Chlorella is 50-60% protein. It’s also a complete protein, meaning it contains all 9 essential amino acids.
Antioxidants: Chlorella is rich in chlorophyll, vitamin C, beta-carotene, lycopene and lutein.
Vitamins & Minerals: Chlorella provides a host of vitamins and minerals, such as iron, vitamin C, magnesium, zinc, copper, potassium, calcium, folic acid, B vitamins
Omega-3s: Chlorella also contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for brain health.
I am new to chlorella and I am also learning about spirulina and it can get confusing. In Fact, a lot of people get spirulina and chlorella confused. While they’re both algae and contain chlorophyll (chlorella contains more), they do have some significant differences. The biggest one is that spirulina can be consumed right after harvest; chlorella cannot.
Chlorella contains hard cell walls, which means it can’t be digested by humans. Because of that, chlorella goes through a process known as “cell cracking” that makes it easier to digest and absorb and ultimately, reap the many health benefits.
CHLORELLA BENEFIT #1 – It detoxifies heavy metals.
CHLORELLA BENEFIT #2 – It gives your immune system a boost.
CHLORELLA BENEFIT #3 – It may lower cholesterol & blood pressure.
CHLORELLA BENEFIT #4 – It’s good for improving your endurance.
I am looking at taking chlorella so my next question was HOW!
Consumer experiences have shown that a daily dose of 2-5 grams of chlorella (or 10-15 300 mg chlorella tablets) has significant positive effects on quality of life. Doctors and nutritionists also suggest taking 3-5 grams or 10-15 tablets every day to prevent health complications and illnesses.
It comes in various forms from capsules and tablets to extract and even powders.
We will have to check back in on this one.
