Chlorella can improve gastrointestinal problems and relieve constipation

According to statistics from the National Institutes of Health, approximately 60 million people in North America suffer from chronic constipation and digestive diseases, but the harm of constipation is often underestimated, and many people still suffer in silence. If it cannot be prevented and treated in time, constipation can also lead to hemorrhoids, anal fissures and chronic diseases of the colon, especially for patients with high blood pressure and coronary heart disease.


So is there a simple and effective prevention method? Of course there is. Dr. Mark Drucker, the founder of the Center for Advanced Medicine who has been engaged in nutrition and natural medicine research for more than 20 years, said: "For any digestive problem, I have long recommended chlorella. It can help repair, balance and restore the digestive system. Constipation and colon health are especially helpful." Why does chlorella have such a magical effect?

Comprehensive nutrition

Scientific research and clinical experiments have confirmed that as a high-density and comprehensive nutritional food, chlorella contains a variety of nutrients that have a significant effect on preventing and improving constipation and digestive diseases.

1. Cellulose

Probiotics are essential to human health. They can promote digestion and absorption, strengthen immune cells, and protect the intestinal mucosa. At the same time, it can reduce cholesterol absorption and moisturize the bowel. Some people eat probiotics directly as supplements, but probiotics are very sensitive to gastric acid. The normal pH of gastric acid is about 1.8, which is not conducive to the survival of probiotics. In addition, probiotics are anaerobic and intolerant to high temperatures, and it is difficult for them to reach the intestines during consumption. Some international studies have shown that for people whose gastrointestinal flora balance has been severely damaged, supplementing with probiotics may have unsatisfactory results. Therefore, for patients with certain gastrointestinal diseases, the effect of supplementing with prebiotics is better. Prebiotics are the nutritional source of probiotics and can promote the increase in the number of probiotics. In addition, when prebiotics pass through the upper digestive tract, most of them are not digested and can directly reach the intestines and be absorbed by the flora. Generally, foods with higher soluble dietary fiber are the most ideal prebiotics.

The cell wall of Chlorella is rich in soluble dietary cellulose, which can help improve the patency of bowel movement and excrete various toxins such as heavy metals from the body, keep the intestines clean and improve constipation. Dr. Mark Drucker said: "Studies have shown that the cellulose contained in Chlorella can help the body's probiotics grow three times faster. These probiotics can not only help us digest food, improve inflammatory bowel disease, and even improve our health mood. If you eat chlorella every day, while providing the probiotics with the nutrients of love, they will also give back this love and health to us.”


2. Chlorophyll

Chlorella has the highest chlorophyll content of all plants, and chlorophyll is a natural detoxifier. It can help intestinal peristalsis and make excretion smooth; it can also effectively help the damaged digestive tract tissue to heal, so that the body can absorb more oxygen.


3. Vitamins

Chlorella is rich in vitamins, such as vitamins A, B, C, D, and E. These vitamins can help digestion, relieve bloating, fight inflammation, and assist colonic membrane healing.


4. Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral that helps promote muscle function and can help restore regular peristalsis in the intestines. If you suspect that bloating is related to slow digestion and constipation, magnesium is especially helpful for this. Chlorella contains a nutrient that can help digestion - magnesium.
In addition, Chlorella also contains nutrients necessary for human digestion and absorption - high content and high quality protein.
Dr. Mark Drucker said: "Researchers at Mimasake Women’s College gave experimental participants who suffered from constipation regularly consumed chlorella tablets. As a result, the number of bowel movements and total bowel movements increased, and the softness of stools was improved."
