Yesterday we talked about Cilantro Detox. Today we are going to be talking about Chlorella Detox aka- cilantro’s cleanup crew.
So what is Chlorella?
Chlorella is a single celled freshwater algae, which contains an extremely high amount of chlorophyll; chlorophyll is the chemical that gives plants their green color. There is plenty of information on the net that tells you the benefits of Chlorella, so I won’t get into that. WebMd if you trust them :p has a decent article on what is, how it works and how to use it. Basically, it just says that Chlorella is a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals, and is an excellent source of “good” bacteria.
How it works
If cilantro was the heavy guns, bull in the china shop if you will, chlorella is the cleanup crew. Here is the boring way to think about Chlorella: “Because cilantro mobilizes more toxins than it can carry out of the body, it may flood the connective tissue with metals that were previously stored. This process is call re-toxification. It can easily be avoided by simultaneously giving an intestinal toxin-absorbing agent such as algae organism chlorella.”
Here is the fun way to think about Chlorella: Cilantro did all the heavy lifting and splattering of blood on the wall. The issue with cilantro is, it’s a brute and sucks at doing paperwork that *is* necessary. Chlorella is the back office girl that actually knows where stuff is, can talk on the phone to customers without getting pissed off, can line stuff up and facilitate a clean spot free exit with very few, if any, fingerprints.
That’s it. Ya, I know you were expecting some big huge thing, but nope, that’s it. Kinda like that one time you went to the DMV and were out of there in like 20 minutes…not really.
This concludes my post on Chlorella Detox.
