Spirulina and Chlorella, The Newest Natural Protectors Against Radiation
The recent 8.9-magnitude earthquake in Japan that ended in a tsunami has caused widespread fear and worry among all countries in the world. The death toll that has reached a whopping ten thousand casualties makes the disaster the worst so far experienced by Japan. The ripple effect, of course, can be felt by many countries in the world. One other effect of the calamity is the malfunctioning of the nuclear plant in Fukushima where radiation is seen to be leaking. The effect of radiation to any person who gets exposed to it is very extreme.
Many news have stated that in order to be protected from effects of radiation is to load up on potassium chloride and other iodine supplements. However, these moves do not guarantee full protection from radiation. Though the thyroid glands are covered by iodine supplements, the rest of the body is not.
Spirulina and chlorella have been found to have properties that can protect the body from radiation. Spirulina is a blue – green alga that is rich in vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. It is proven to be effective against cancer and aging and is a detoxifying food.
Chlorella has almost the same content of vitamins and minerals as the spirulina. This algae helps repair damaged DNA, balances one’s body’s PH level, fights inflammation, and boosts the immune system. With regards radiation, chlorella can help prevent radioactive damage.
In 1993, chlorella was found to be protective against damage caused by acute and chronic radioactive damage by the researchers of Jawaharlal Nehru University in India.
Spirulina and chlorella are both cheap and very easy to acquire. These are naturally occurring making them safe for everybody. The radiation may be under control. But we do not have to wait for something more to happen before we start doing something. So take spirulina and chlorella now to get that needed protection.
