The Benefits of Chlorella & Lemon Juice

The blue-green algae chlorella, a form of seaweed, may contain a wide variety of health benefits, from delivering helpful nutrients such as vitamins B, C and E, to helping the body ward off debilitating diseases. Lemon juice similarly contains essential nutrients, such as vitamin C, and may also have a number of positive effects on overall health, such as promoting gall bladder health, reducing cellulite and improving circulation.

Immunity Boost

Both chlorella and lemon juice may help to boost your immune system. Beth M. Ley, in “Chlorella: The Ultimate Green Food: Nature’s Richest Source of Chlorophyll, DNA, & RNA: A Learning Handbook,” explains that chlorella may enhance the immune system’s ability to fight off bacteria and viruses, as well as chemicals and other foreign substances. Chlorella, Lev notes, may prompt the body to produce higher levels of the antiviral agent interferon, as well as stimulate cellular activity that protects the body against foreign substances. 

Lemons have a history of helping to strengthen the immune system against diseases such as scurvy and rickets. Ann Louise Gittleman, in “The Fat Flush Foods,” explains that the fresh juice of a lemon contains as much as four times the amount of vitamin C as an orange. A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C stimulates circulation and combats damaging free radicals which contribute to infections. Lemon juice may help to guard against a wide range of infections, from bronchitis and the flu, to the common cold, ear infections and hives.
