Studies have shown improvement in mental function after using spirulina (about 1 gram per day over a 6 month period) thus demonstrating a link between micro-algae and brain function. This could be related to the presence of both GLA and phycocyanin in spirulina. GLA is normally found in the mother’s milk and hardly found in food and is a powerful anti-inflammatory that can benefit arthritis sufferers and prevent heart disease among other benefits. A significant amount of research on the benefits of Phycocyanin has shown anti-inflammatory activity through the suppression of nitric oxide, prostaglandin E-2, tumor necrosis factor alpha and the Cox-2 enzyme. This helps inhibit cancer-colony formation and it helps join together amino acids for neurotransmitter formations that increase mental functionaltiy.
Chlorella has more than 5 times the chlorophyll than wheat grass, 10 times more that barley grass. Chlorophyll speeds up the rate of cleaning out the bowel, bloodstream and liver. This helps to assure that metabolic wastes are effectively carried away from the body tissues. Chlorella helps to detoxify the body and repair the immune system while spirulina is proven to help continue a balanced diet and provide an energy boost.
Chlorella helps with poor digestion and assimilation as these micro-algae are easy to take in and absorb thus enhance poor vitality and correct iron deficiency anemia. Chlorella can also help protect the kidneys and liver, strengthen immunity by improving the activity of T-cells and B-cells and improve memory, concentration and focus.
Spirulina provides a high level of beta carotene, is rich in Vitamin B-12 and iron, contains the rare essential fatty acid, GLA, gram for gram has more calcium and magnesium than other foods. Combined with the Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) that increases the growth of friendly bacteria, lactobacillus, by up to 400% and repairs nerve tissue, you have a convincing reason to consume both of these micro-algae for improved health and mental function. The GLA feeds your brain and nervous system, the CGF repairs damaged nerve tissue. Chlorella and Spirulina – It’s a potent combination.
