I've been reading a lot about Chlorella. It's a microalgae that has a multitude of benefits.
I've copied this from a website about it:
Chlorella is a supreme booster of the immune system.
Chlorella has been proven, in numerous studies, to have the ability to bind with and remove chemicals and heavy metals, thus relieving the body of its toxic burdens.
Chlorella can help provide critical nutritional support that may be lacking in the diets of many people.
Chlorella is not a ďmagic pillĒ that will cure whatever ails you. Chlorella is a food that supplies key nutrients that interact with the bodyís systems in such a way as to enhance the ability to protect, balance and heal.
Benefits of Chlorella:
Improves bowel function by stimulating peristaltic movement
Stimulates the growth of beneficial aerobic bacteria in the gut
Has anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-parasitic properties
Selectively binds to heavy metals (cadmium, mercury, lead)

Is one of the best jing stimulators (Jing is a term from Chinese medicine that refers to the bodyís ability to have vitality, resist disease, and increase longevity)
