Chlorella’s Effect on Digestion and Digestive Tract Health

Chlorella – The sun-powered supernutrient and its beneficial properties

“Bowel detoxification and bowel health are also in Chlorella’s domain. The cell wall material included in natural Chlorella products has a highly important effect in the intestines: it has the capability of improving bowel function, it stimulates the growth of aerobic, friendly bacteria, and the cell walls act to absorb poisons within the intestine and promote normal peristalsis. Peristalsis is the muscular contraction that moves material through the bowels. This normal movement prevents constipation and also plays a part in preventing toxic material in the stool from being reabsorbed into the bloodstream. The ability of Chlorella to stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria and to detoxify chemicals can be put to good use by persons suffering from a Candida albicans infection.” – William H. Lee,R.Ph., Ph.D. and Michael Rosenbaum, MD

Chlorella, Jewel of the Far East

“Chlorella contains more chlorophyll per gram than any other known plant….In 1944 Smith reported on the anti-bacterial properties of water soluble chlorophyll derivatives…he concluded that chlorophyll acts to produce an environment unfavorable to the growth of bacteria instead of by any direct action upon the organisms themselves. The ability of these derivatives to hold back anaerobic bacterial growth points, in his opinion, to an oxidation mechanism. In addition to chlorophyll’s action on anaerobic bacteria, Chlorella’s cell wall acts to absorb poisons within the intestine and promote normal peristalsis. The intestinal tract (especially the small intestine) is lined by patches of lymphocytes which are probably stimulated by the Chlorella cell wall material to increase their abilities to destroy foreign invaders such as anaerobic bacteria. Chlorella also stimulates the growth of the good intestinal bacteria (lactobacillus) and those that produce vitamin B 12.” “Chlorella – Natural Medicinal Algae” by Dr David Steenblock,B.S.,M.Sc.,D.O.

“The bowel is the most important elimination organ in the body. It is often affected by dietary deficiencies, lack of fiber, lack of exercise and the stress of modern living. Chlorella has proven itself to be a wonderful cleanser and tonic for the bowel, even restoring the normal function of a flaccid, under-active bowel, in some cases. The average colon contains 400 to 500 species of bacteria, fungi, yeast and virus, which scientists classify as “friendly” (beneficial to the body) or “unfriendly” flora, such as E.coli, which multiply rapidly until they make up 85% of the bowel flora. These add their own highly poisonous wastes to the colon environment, increasing the toxin level even more. We have to consider that a toxic, under-active bowel indicates a very dangerous situation. There are four components of Chlorella that accelerate the process of bowel cleansing and detoxification. These four ingredients are chlorophyll, Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), protein and fiber, which work in harmony to clean up the colon. The chlorophyll in Chlorella is the most powerful cleansing agent found in nature. As it begins to detoxify the bowel, it also detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, feeds the friendly flora and soothes irritated tissue along the bowel wall. CGF speeds up healing in the bowel wall, while the protein in Chlorella is immediately available to repair and rebuild damaged tissue, and the RNA so abundant in Chlorella also hastens the healing process.” – Dr Bernard Jensen,D.O.,Ph.D.
