The benefits of chlorella for pregnant women

Chlorella-the best gift for mothers to babies

From the formation of the fertilized egg to the child's two years of age, about 1,000 days, is the period when most of the human organs are formed and most of their functions rapidly develop and mature. In recent decades, studies in public health, experimental embryology, and epigenetics have found that the environmental exposure and nutritional status of a baby's early life determine to a large extent the health and destiny of the baby. Genes cannot be changed for children, but if nutritional support is not provided in the initial stages of the formation of organs and various life systems, even the best genes are in vain. As a mother who conceives a baby, her nutritional status, the number and quality of her eggs, the size and shape of the placenta are all related to her fetal development and childhood development. The development of the mother is also related to the nutrition and health of the grandmother. In short, the impact of women on the health of the next generation is far greater than that of men. The mother's long-term nutritional status (mainly reflected in height) will have a much greater impact on the nutrition and health of the offspring than the father.

Essential fatty acids are very important for the growth and development of infants and young children. In 1978, Professor Michael from the United Kingdom published a paper (Insufficient intake of essential fatty acids such as DHA leads to brain dysfunction). His conclusions were subsequently repeatedly verified by Canadian and Japanese scholars, confirming that insufficient intake of DHA would lead to decreased memory and learning ability. The main components of brain cells are lecithin, cephalin and polyethylenically unsaturated fatty acids, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA); according to analysis, DHA in brain gray matter accounts for 10% of the total fat, the formation and development of the brain begin in the fetal period, and the main stage is between 3 months after pregnancy and 6 months after birth. This period is the most vigorous period of human brain cell development, and the supply of DHA appears It is especially important, so it has the reputation of "brain gold". At the same time, it has a good health care function for the cardiovascular system. Some people also call it "Double Heart/HeadAgent". This substance is mainly found in the fat of fish, especially in deep-sea fish head phospholipids. The content of other natural foods is very small, but in the human body, it can be formed by the conversion of linolenic acid in the n-3 fatty acid system, and part of it can also be converted by arachidonic acid. Therefore, the mother’s diet is rich in linoleic acid and linolenic acid, and it is very important to provide EPA and DHA for transportation from the mother to the fetus in order to prepare for the growth and development of fetal brain cells. The fatty acid content in Chlorella is as high as 6g/100g. It can be seen that the consumption of chlorella by pregnant women has positive significance for the normal development of fetal brain tissue. Some people also advocate that it is better to eat before pregnancy, because these essential nutrients will be stored in human fat in order to be used as a precursor for the synthesis of n-6 and n-3 long carbon chain fatty acids in the placenta and fetus in the future to satisfy the fetal brain Developmental needs.

Chlorella helps pregnant mothers eliminate dioxins and prevent pregnancy anemia and poisoning

From a nutritional point of view, breast milk is very important for lactating children. Breast milk is not only rich in nutrients, but more importantly, it is rich in immunoglobulin A (IgA), lactoferrin, and lysozyme bacteria and other components related to the immune system. However, in recent years, due to environmental pollution, high concentrations of dioxins have been detected in breast milk. It has been confirmed that dioxins accumulated in the mother's body are transferred to the fetus through the placenta during pregnancy, and transferred to the baby through breast milk during the breastfeeding process.

In the experiment on whether Chlorella can reduce the concentration of dioxins in the human body, scientists selected 35 pregnant women aged 23-40 at the Nara Hospital in Japan and divided them into two groups. The first experimental group was 18 people, from pregnancy 12-16 weeks. From the beginning of the week to 6 months before delivery, take 10 chlorella tablets produced by Japan Sun Chlorella in three times every morning, lunch and dinner. There were 17 people in the control group (not taking chlorella during the same period). After rigorous scientific experiments, scientists confirmed that the dioxin content in breast milk of pregnant women who took chlorella tablets during pregnancy was 40% lower than that in the control group. At the same time, scientists found that the immunoglobulin A (IgA) in the first group of breast milk increased significantly, and the immune system of pregnant women was greatly strengthened!

A few days ago, an expert team composed of Professor Masuo Nakano from the Hokkaido Institute of Medicinal Botanicals and Professor Siro Nakano from Yoka Gakuen University conducted a three-year study on Chlorella, which proved that Chlorella can effectively reduce the body "Dioxins", a kind of hateful toxin causing chronic diseases; and published in the latest issue of "Journal of Medical Food" magazine with the title "Chlorella supplementation can reduce the concentration of "dioxin" in breast milk and increase immunoglobulin A". Scientists believe that the key to the magical effect of chlorella is that the dietary fiber rich in chlorella inhibits the absorption of dioxins from the intestinal and liver circulation, while the chlorophyll complex contained in chlorella promotes Dioxins are excreted from the body. The experiment also studied the occurrence of pregnancy anemia, pregnancy poisoning and pregnancy hypertension syndrome during pregnancy. Studies have shown that the effects of micronutrients such as folic acid, vitamin B12, and iron contained in Chlorella and its anti-inflammatory effects can effectively reduce pregnancy anemia, prevent the occurrence of proteinuria and edema, and prevent pregnancy hypertension syndrome.
