I remembered that I had some chlorella stored in my refrigerator that I had begun using two years ago, but then for some reason I stopped taking it. It may be that I was inundated with supplements trying to figure out how I could cure myself of having low thyroid. I must have figured that I took so many supplements that I couldn’t take my chlorella on top of everything else.
I realized that I used to feel better when I took it. I felt more energy and I did not feel as good without taking it. I have it in tabs in a package that is re-sealable and so I have it in my refrigerator just sitting there waiting to be taken. I put it in my fridge door and so it got buried under a lot of other supplements I keep in the fridge and I did not see it until recently, as well. That’s my excuse.
Chlorella is a green super-food, much like green spirulina. According to one site I went to,
Chlorella contains more chlorophyll than most plants, along with an impressive array of vitamins and minerals (A, D, E, K1, beta carotene, lutein, B vitamins, iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and zinc).
Hypothyroid disease often accompanies adrenal fatigue causing severe tiredness and fatigue. It is an awful thing to have. Often, you treat the hypothyroid, but still feel sluggish, or groggy.
I believe that working on a combination of things helps my energy level and gets my metabolism going. I am currently working on healing my leaky gut syndrome, adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism. I believe these are common problems people have who may not know it and are reasons why people feel groggy and struggle with feeling tired all the time. There may be other reasons, and I’m not a doctor, but these are common health issues, according to the literature out there.
I have read a lot about how inflammation causes a lot of problems in the body and contributes in some way to all these issues I currently am working on. An alkaline diet fights inflammation and helps provide energy. Chlorella is one of those “superfoods” that is alkaline, as are green foods. Chlorella supports digestive health and supports the immune system.
The more I learn and eat foods I am learning about, the better I feel. Chlorella is a strong part of that equation for me.
