Skin Benefits of Chlorella

Posted on 2011/07/18. Filed under: Health issue |

Chlorella is a single-cell green sea algae that is very beneficial to the skin and body. The reason why chlorella helps the skin so much is because it has high levels of skin-benefiting vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids. When these ingredients are combined they help to detoxify skin cells, resulting in healthy beautiful skin. Chlorella also bonds to toxins within our body and assists the body in flushing them out. Chlorella binds to heavy metals that are toxic, as well as pesticides and other chemicals.

Detoxification

One of the most important things chlorella does for the skin is detoxify our skin cells from the inside out. When toxins are removed from the body they don’t have the chance to damage our skin. Over time this will help the skin to maintain radiance and beauty. Of course drinking a lot of pure water is great, but chlorella goes one step further than water, making it a wonderful supplement for detoxification. Chlorella actually penetrates the cell wall to remove harmful substances that can lead to premature aging and other health conditions. Taking chlorella as a vitamin supplement results in overall healthy cells. 

Wound Healing

Chlorella can also be used externally as a powerful skin healing agent. The vitamins and minerals found in chlorella speed up the wound-healing process. The reason why chlorella is so powerful when it comes to healing is because it stimulates our cells to reproduce at a much faster rate. The end result is new, healthy tissue. 

Acne

Chlorella is also a very powerful acne treatment. The reason why chlorella helps with acne is because it strengthens and detoxifies the liver, which results in clear skin because less toxins are coming to the surface. In addition, chlorella also contains high levels of vitamins A. C, E and omega-3 fatty acids. All of these nutrients contribute to healthier skin and reduce inflammation, resulting in fewer breakouts. 

Anti-aging

Chlorella is also a wonderful anti-aging food supplement. Chlorella can slow down the aging process by reducing free radical damage in the body. Free radicals are materials in our body that damage cells, lead to disease and cause our skin to age faster. Free radical damage is the result of pollution in our environment, poor diet and the general aging process. 

Eczema

Chlorella is also a wonderful treatment for eczema. Eczema is a skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. The nutrients in chlorella do wonders for this skin condition. Chlorella should be taken externally and internally for people who suffer from eczema. Chlorella can be purchased in powder form. This powder can then be made into a paste. 

Simply mix the powder with water and slather on the affected areas of the skin. Eczema usually affects various regions of the body such as the legs, arms and torso. Leave this treatment on for 20 minutes before washing off. Apply this mixture once a day before your shower in the morning. In addition to applying chlorella topically, people who suffer from eczema should also take it internally in powder or pill form.

Compounds in Green Tea May Protect Against Common Eye Diseases

Posted on 2011/07/15. Filed under: Health issue |

Green tea has increasingly become one of the world’s most popular beverages, and for good reason. The purported health benefits of green tea are nothing short of amazing. It appears to reduce the risk for a wide range of diseases, from bacterial or viral infections to chronic degenerative conditions including cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, and periodontal disease. Green tea can also be used as a weight loss tool when used alongside a healthy diet.

Researchers in Japan have found that drinking five cups of green tea a day can burn up to 70 to 80 calories, which translates to about seven pounds a year. And recently, researchers at the Chinese University in Hong Kong discovered yet another benefit of drinking this health-promoting brew—it could protect against common eye diseases such as glaucoma.

For their study, published in the current issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Chi Pui Pang and colleagues gave laboratory rats green tea extract and then analyzed their eye tissue. The researchers found that different parts of the eye absorbed varying amounts of catechins, antioxidants which are believed to prevent damage caused by oxidation. The retina, the part of the eye responsible for sensing light, had the highest concentration of the antioxidants, while the least amount was found in the cornea, the clear outer layer of the eye. The antioxidant activity lasted for up to 20 hours after consumption of green tea extract. “Our results indicate that green tea consumption could benefit the eye against oxidative stress,” the authors concluded. Oxidative stress leads to retinal diseases like glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Green tea is the least processed, made by briefly steaming the just harvested leaves, rendering them soft and pliable and preventing them from fermenting or changing color. After steaming, the leaves are rolled, then spread out and dried with hot air or pan-fried in a wok until crisp. Because of green tea’s minimal processing, its catechins, especially epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which is believed to be responsible for most of the health benefits linked to green tea, are more concentrated. It wasn’t known until now, however, if the catechins were able to make their way from the mouth, through the gastrointestinal system, and be absorbed into the tissues of the eye. More studies will be needed to confirm the protective effect in humans.

Adding green tea to your diet is simple and inexpensive. It also provides a healthful alternative to sugar-and-chemical laden soft drinks which are helping to fuel soaring rates of diabetes and obesity.

Prevent toxins from eating organic spirulina, and detox by eating organic chlorella!!

Posted on 2011/07/08. Filed under: Health issue |

Since the radioactive contaminations of food products from the nuclear incident in Japan, there have been endless reports on food safety. Followed by the more recent E.coli infected German vegetables, consumers are starting to fear and wonder about which foods are really safe.

In fact, food has long been ubiquitous polluted. It was not long ago when we discovered that Chinese milk manufacturers manufactured milk that contained large amounts of melamine, a dangerous plastic. This was done to reduce material costs for the manufacturers. Apart from the man-made pollutants, there are also natural disasters and environmental pollutions that may create unsafe food products.

What is vitally important now is to learn from the recent food contamination issues and look into how one can prevent these pollutants and toxins from entering the human body, and also what can be done to remove the toxins that have already accumulated inside the body. Think of food issues as a turning point for healthy diets, it will be the key of success to healthy living.

Research shows Chlorella’s effect to detox, and Spirulina’s effect to immune.

40 Years ago, scientists have already discovered that chlorella contains the secret to detoxification. Since 2000, Morita K and many other scholars have been conducting animal studies and found that diets that contain chlorella or chlorophyll, can not only reduce dioxin and heavy metal from getting absorbed from the intestines, it can also effectively speed up the discharge of toxic substances.

In 1993, at the International Conference on Applied Phycology, some scholars published researches that claimed Spirulina’s positive effects against radiation. Their research found that Spirulina is a natural absorbent of radiation, which can help reduce the amount of radiation accumulated, and even have the ability to recover children who have been exposed to low doses of radiation for a long period of time.

On 30th June 2011, an organization that protected the Fukushima residents published an analysis, which showed the detected level of radiation in children’s urine. Ten children from the range of 6~16 years old were detected with cesium in their urine, proving that the local children have been contaminated with radioactive material. This also shows that the radiation issue is not yet over in Japan, and it is estimated for the next 10 years or so will still be affected by the radioactive material. Therefore, this is an appropriate time to take FEBICO’s Organic Spirulina to prevent radioactive contamination.

Living in such a highly industrialized environment today, it is not easy getting rid of all the threats from environmental toxins. People should take this opportunity to re-establish good personal habits, more rests, less alcohol, and more exercise will enable the liver to restore its original functions. With the help of FEBICO’s Organic Spirulina and Organic Chlorella, users will be able to reduce and prevent toxic contaminations and achieve a healthy lifestyle!
