Understanding the Benefits of Chlorella

Chlorella is a genus of single-celled green algae, belonging to the phylum Chlorophyta. It is spherical in shape, about 2 to 10 μm in diameter, and is without flagella. Chlorella contains the green photosynthetic pigments chlorophyll-a and -b in its chloroplast. Through photosynthesis it multiplies rapidly requiring only carbon dioxide, water, sunlight, and a small amount of minerals to reproduce.

The name Chlorella is taken from the Greek word chloros meaning green and the Latin diminutive suffix ella meaning "small." German biochemist Otto Heinrich Warburg received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1931 for his study on photosynthesis in Chlorella. In 1961 Melvin Calvin of the University of California received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his research on the pathways of carbon dioxide assimilation in plants using Chlorella. In recent years, researchers have made less use of Chlorella as an experimental organism because it lacks a sexual cycle and, therefore, the research advantages of genetics are unavailable.

Studies have shown that chlorella has health benefits. Numerous research projects in the U.S. and Europe indicate that chlorella can also aid the body in breaking down persistent hydrocarbon and metallic toxins such as mercury, cadmium and lead, DDT and PCB while strengthening the immune system response. In Japan, interest in chlorella has focused largely on its detoxifying properties - its ability to remove or neutralize poisonous substances from the body.

And according to Dr. Mercola, here are other benefits of Pure Green Food:

Why Fluoride is Not Good for the Health

For a long period of time it was believed that fluoride is good for the health especially for the teeth. But there were researches and studies that say fluoride has bad effects on health specifically to the brain.

Recent human studies from China have confirmed the results of previous animal studies; that elevated fluoride exposure leads to reduced I.Q. in children. Cognitive ability is further reduced if your child is deficient in iodine.

Even at levels as low as 1ppm (part per million), studies have demonstrated direct toxic effects on brain tissue, including:
reduction in lipid content
• impaired anti-oxidant defense systems
• damage to your hippocampus
• damage to your purkinje cells
• increased uptake of aluminum
• formation of beta-amyloid plaques (the classic brain abnormality in Alzheimer's disease)
• accumulation of fluoride in your pineal gland.

And according Dr. Mercola there are ways on how to keep teeth healthy without fluoride:

• look into a diet that is naturally healthy teeth. Fewer intakes of sweets and processed food will lessen the chances of having tooth decay.
• protect yourself by using non-fluoride toothpaste and non getting fluoride treatments from dentist
• avoid giving your child fluoride supplements
• drink water that undergo a reverse osmosis filter.

Things You Don’t Know About Plastics

Plastics are common household material for different purposes, from food storage, baby bottles and even toys. Plastic is not an inert substance as its manufacturers would like you to believe. It contains chemicals like BPA, used to strengthen some plastics and phthalates to soften others. This harmful substance has a capability to mimic hormones in your body.

Here are some of the alarming effects of being exposed with this kind of substances:

  • Structural damage to your brain
  • Hyperactivity, increased aggressiveness, and impaired learning
  • Increased fat formation and risk of obesity
  • Altered immune function
  • Early puberty, stimulation of mammary gland development, disrupted reproductive cycles, and ovarian dysfunction
  • Changes in gender-specific behavior, and abnormal sexual behavior
  • Stimulation of prostate cancer cells
  • Increased prostate size, and decreased sperm production

Knowing these effects leads us to a solution, cut down the plastic exposure. And according to Dr. Mercola here are some tips to reduce plastic in our lives.

  1. Boycott plastic shopping bags. Use reusable canvas or cloth varieties instead. (This also applies to the plastic produce bags in the grocery store.)
  2. Don’t buy bottled water. Filter your own using a reverse-osmosis filter and put it in a glass bottle. I am going to be helping you in this area soon as my team is just finishing up a glass water bottle that you can use to carry around with you. It is covered with a neoprene sleeve to protect it from breaking and has a easy lid to drink from and is wide enough so you can easily clean the bottle. I hope to have them available in the fall as they are at the factory right now being produced.
  3. Avoid using plastic cups, utensils, dishware and food storage containers. If you get a beverage while on-the-go, bring your own cup with you.
  4. Buy toys made of natural fabrics instead of plastic.
  5. Look for products that use minimal packaging, or buy in bulk.
  6. Give up plastic wrap (and never use it to cover your food while it’s heating).
  7. Avoid buying canned foods and drinks (the can linings contain plastic chemicals). Try your hand at canning fresh produce at home instead.

Natural Ways to Relieve Migraine

Migraine is not an ordinary headache. It is neurological syndrome characterized by altered bodily experiences, painful headaches, and nausea. And according to the reports, more than 300 million people – around 6 to 7 percent of male and 15 to 18 of female is suffering from this pain. But unfortunately it is poorly treated.

There are cases that these painful headaches are preceded or accompanied by sensory warning or aura like flashes of light, blind spots or tingling of arms or legs. It is also accompanied by signs or symptoms of nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to sound or light. Migraine pain can be excruciating and may incapacitate you for hours or even days.

Although there were studies about migraine, there were no exact conclusions about its cause and cure. Even though there were no cures there are already treatments to ease the pain and lessen its occurrence.

Here are some tips to naturally relieve migraine from Dr. Mercola – Natural Health Newsletter:

1. Stimulating your body's natural painkilling ability. By putting pressure on a nerve just under your eyebrow, you can cause your pituitary gland to release painkilling endorphins immediately.

2. Taking 10 teaspoons of cayenne pepper in a glass of water. Endorphins are released by your brain when the cayenne hits your stomach lining.

3. Using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). Newcomers who use this simple process by themselves achieve relief 50 percent to 80 percent of the time and, in many cases, the relief is complete and permanent. More sophisticated uses by an EFT expert may be required for some migraine sufferers.

4. Green apple scent. One study found that the scent significantly relieved migraine pain. This may also work with other scents that you enjoy so consulting with an aromatherapist may be beneficial.

Other useful techniques include:

    • Putting a cold compress on your forehead or behind your neck
    • Massaging your ears and ear lobes
    • Massaging the "crown" of your head -- the ring of muscles that circle your head where a crown would sit

Sweet kiss but deadly

Lipstick is a cosmetic product that many women can’t live without and because of this test was done to check the quality and safety for its users.

Surprisingly, the studies show that some lipsticks contain toxins like lead. Sixty-one percent of the lipsticks tested had detectable lead levels. One-third of the lipsticks exceeded accepted U.S. levels of lead for products that are ingested. The Dior lipstick was found to contain more than twice as much lead as is allowed.

Among the U.S. lipsticks with the highest lead levels were:

  • L’Oreal Colour Riche “True Red” –- 0.65 ppm
  • L’Oreal Colour Riche “Classic Wine” –- 0.58 ppm
  • Cover Girl Incredifull Lipcolor “Maximum Red” –- 0.56 ppm
  • Dior Addict “Positive Red” –- 0.21 ppm

Lead in your lipstick may come from one of two places: colorants, which may contain lead, or as byproducts from ingredients obtained from raw materials like petrolatum, mineral oil and paraffin. The only limit that the FDA has established is for FD&C color additives that are sometimes used to color lipstick, and these are allowed to contain 10-20 ppm of lead.

Also studies have found that there were no safe level of lead since it is a substance that does not breakdown in the body and will be accumulated for a life time. And according to Dr. Mercola in his natural health newsletter, there are other toxins that can be found in variety of cosmetic and personal products like paraben, phthalates, muska and methylisothiazolinone. This toxins can be directly absorbed by the body that may cause health problems.

It is advice that women must be aware on the contents or ingredients of the cosmetics and personal products that they will use. They must be cautious enough that cosmetics specifically lipsticks should be as pure as the food you eat. And as suggested by Dr. Mercola look for organic make up that are effective and does not contain synthetic materials.
