Alpha-Lipoic Acid + Chlorella

Categories: SUPPLEMENTATIONPublished On: December 1st, 2023

Alpha-lipoic acid, a new universal medicine? When you combine it with chlorella it seems to become one of the most potent body cleansers known.

Just as the alchemists of yesterday looked for secret medicines to cure us of disease and find permanent youth, the experts of biology and nutrition today strive to discover new products (either manufactured by the body or externally) that allow us to live as long as possible in the best possible health and reduce the impact of illnesses caused by viruses and toxins. One of the most recent additions to the list of products that promote the health and fitness lifestyle is alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), a compound substance that appears naturally in some foods and serves as a vitamin as well as a powerful antioxidant. It was discovered in the early 1950s to be an important growth factor for many bacteria and protozoa. But ALA was actually first discovered in potatoes, two decades earlier. Broccoli, potatoes, spinach and internal animal organs (liver, kidneys) are important sources of this supplement that many now consider to yield great benefits.

How ALA works

The body uses it, among other things, to break down carbohydrates and make energy for various organs. It is believed to prevent damage to cells and restore levels of vitamins, such as C and E. There is evidence of its ability to restore neurons in cases of diabetes. It has considerable ability as a powerful antioxidant; it can help to combat liver problems, alleviate the side effects of diabetes, guard against complications arising from bypass surgery and also provides cosmetic benefits by reducing wrinkles and the roughness of ageing skin to gives us a more youthful appearance. Research has also proven that ALA enhances fat loss when taken over a period of more than two months and less than one year. The use of ALA seems to be safe for most people. Some have even taken it orally for four years without experiencing any negative side effects, except for a few that experienced mild itching. For people with cancer or diabetes (it is said ALA has the potential to slow down or alleviate some of the symptoms), you should consult your doctor or nutritionist before starting to consume it.

One of the great things about alpha-lipoic acid is its ability to extract mercury from the body organs where it is stored. You can increase the dose and take it more frequently to achieve this but do not consume it (yes, as explained above) if you have silver fillings in your mouth.

Chlorella And Its Amazing Detox Properties

Chlorella has the same properties as spirulina, except that it is a single cell freshwater algae, as well as being one of the oldest known species on the planet. Its reproductive capacity is amazing, making it an exceptional source of nutrients that is very good for the environment as well as your requirement for protein, essential minerals and vitamins. This algae has to undergo a special process to become digestible since it has an outer crust that humans are unable to digest. Chlorella also has an extraordinary characteristic: it is recognised as one of the foods with the highest nutrient density. More than 50% of its content is protein, and 100 grams contains well over 100% of the Human Daily Needs of Vitamin A, Vitamin B2, Iron and Zinc. However, the cost makes it sensible to consume greater amounts of other less nutrient-dense but less expensive foods as well.

One study found that typical use of chlorella makes us stronger and healthier by enhancing the activity of natural killer cells and by strengthening the immune system.

There are anecdotal references from many people stating that chlorella plays an important role in helping to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol and in alleviating pain caused by fibromyalgia.

The Link Between Ala And Clorella Yields Benefits In The Process Of Detoxification Of Heavy Metals And Chemical Toxins.

Alpha-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant with almost universal benefits. It promotes the elimination of harmful free radicals (mismatched molecules that cause diseases and infections to bind), and has the advantage of being able to function in both aqueous and fatty materials. ALA enhances the work of the liver and its ability to regenerate. It also has the valuable property of being able to remove harmful heavy metals, such as lead or mercury from the body, as well as toxins. Combining it with chlorella multiplies its capacity to do this. This seaweed has been in existence for more than 500 million years! Its positive benefits are due to a phytochemical (CGF, or Chlorella Growth Factor) that is responsible for its remarkable capacity to survive. Its recognised beneficial properties are already used to improve the quality of life of people undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It is also said to aid liver health and detoxification without eliminating beneficial minerals for the body. Consumed in small quantities over time, it could make it difficult for the body to accumulate heavy metals and strengthen the immune system.

Anyone exposed to the build up of heavy metals should seek advice from a doctor or specialist in the subject before attempting to remove them too quickly or using the wrong substances.

How Should You Combine Ala And Chlorella?

If you feel widespread general discomfort and believe it is due to the accumulation of toxins and heavy metals, which affects a large part of the population, then it is time to try this remedy. The cleaning process should last for two to three consecutive months, and can be resumed after a similar rest period has elapsed. There is no problem repeating it whenever you think it is necessary or if you want to strengthen the immune system. The daily doses ingested should range between 250 to 500 milligrams of alpha lipoic acid in pill form and 2 to 3 grams of chlorella (powder is the best option). Many people consume them half an hour before training; others take it with breakfast. The mixture must be accompanied by liquid. Men and women weighing less than 60 kilos, should take 250 mg of ALA + 2 grams of chlorella; people weighing between 60 and 90 kilos should have around 375mg and 2.5 grams. Anyone heavier should ingest the limit of 500mg and 3 grams those that exceed that figure. Never forget to consult a specialist in nutrition or sports medicine before starting a treatment with this or other products.
