Torrance, CA, January 25, 2012 – A healthy diet might be the most important tool you have for balancing your metabolism. Most people know enough to get the junk food and artificial ingredients out of their diet for the New Year but improving the metabolism also involves “putting the good things in.” A daily regimen of Sun Chlorella, derived from Chlorella pyrenoidosa, a nutritionally superior species of a freshwater, single-celled, green algae, can help bring a body into proper balance quickly and efficiently. And when the metabolism is running like a well-oiled machine, let’s face it, it’s easier to shape up and get the body beach-ready for those upcoming summer months, which are not too far off.
Sun Chlorella provides vital nutrients that the body needs such as potassium, all of the B vitamins, magnesium, zinc and iron, 18 vital amino acids, beta-carotene and lutein. Nutritionists tout adding vitamins and fiber to the diet, and supplementing the diet with Sun Chlorella provides an easy way to do just that.
Three essential ingredients that address metabolism support include adding fiber, healthy fats and regulating insulin levels. Regular consumption of Sun Chlorella offers a boost in this healthy direction.
FIBER– the indigestible parts of fruits, nuts, whole grains, and vegetables, sweeps toxins from the body and slows the rate at which the body absorbs sugars from food. Both functions have a huge and positive impact on the metabolism. The federal government recommends 25 grams of fiber a day for women and 38 grams a day for men. Sun Chlorella tablets contain optimum amounts of fiber as well as natural energy enhancing ingredients.
HEALTHY FATS– Omega-3 fatty acids improve the metabolic function of every cell in the body by reducing inflammation. Increasing intake of fish, walnuts, and ground flaxseed while limiting intake of pro-inflammatory omega-6-rich foods, like heavily processed foods as well as corn, soy, safflower, sunflower, and vegetable oils are helpful, as is adding Sun Chlorella, Nature’s Perfect Superfood. Sun Chlorella contains a full range of nutrients including those especially helpful to digestion health such as amino acids and Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids.
“So much has been written about the beneficial effects of omega 3 fish oils. Where do you think the fish get their omega 3 oils? From microalgae-of course!” explains Michael Rosenbaum, MD of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. “Phytoplankton and microalgae–single cell green foods are consumed by tiny non-plant plankton (zooplankton) which are consumed by krill which are then consumed by small fish (and also by whales). Larger fish successively eat smaller fish and the fish oils keep concentrating –usually, the larger the fish the more fish oil. Microalgae are the source– the root of the fish oil. That is the important concept because that is where chlorella is derived, and chlorella contains more fatty acids than any other form of microalgae.”
INSULIN LEVELS & EXERCISE– When it comes to metabolism, the value of exercise cannot be stressed enough. Resistance training builds muscle, and regular, sustained movement supports the thyroid, lowers inflammation, and improves the rate at which insulin can move blood sugar into your cells.
According to Dr. Rosenbaum, a widely recognized pioneer in the field of nutritional medicine, “High insulin levels are related to diabetes and heart disease and suggest ‘insulin resistance’. Eating protein foods tends to reduce insulin. A high carb diet, especially of high glycemic ratio carbs, is responsible for raising insulin. Chlorella contains-ounce for ounce, the highest percentage of protein of any food and it is a concentrated source of protein. The CGF promotes protein synthesis in the body which also may help to reduce insulin.”
Chlorella is a whole, green food which is particularly nutrient dense; meaning that besides having a high content of protein and chlorophyll it’s also packed with vital phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals. This natural combination of nutrients act in synergy to give Chlorella “adaptogenic” qualities; meaning that consumption of modest amounts (3-6g) of Chlorella daily can help maintain or restore normal bodily functions and metabolism.
Pure Sun Chlorella
The pure, Sun Chlorella carefully cultivated pyrenoidosa strain is the superior alternative to other, often harsh, chemically processed and indigestible Chlorella products on the market. It naturally provides protein, antioxidants such as chlorophyll and beta-carotene, dietary fiber, vitamins B, C, D and E, nucleic and amino acids, and many important minerals.
Five Tips To Get That Summer-Ready Beach Body
Plan healthy snacks. Instead of snacking on whatever’s available, or rushing to a vending machine or convenience store when hunger strikes, plan to have healthy snacks in-between meals. Fruit, veggies, yogurt, dried fruit and similar snacks are all good choices.
Find lower-fat alternatives. The burger-lover, for example, can make turkey burgers or soy burgers. Bake chicken instead of frying it. Get low-fat milk and yogurt instead of the higher-fat versions. Never give up fat completely, in fact, some types of fat are good for the body in moderation, but it’s important to remember that fat is high in calories (more than twice as calorie-dense as protein or carbs), and lowering the body’s fat intake to a more moderate amount will also lower the calorie intake.
Eat slowly, and then wait 20 minutes. Scarfing down meals can result in overeating. It takes awhile for the brain to get the message that the stomach is full. When a person eats quickly, they actually eat past fullness.
Eat sensible servings. Eat a moderate plate, not stacked up is a good rule of thumb; and avoid eating seconds right away. Wait for at least 20 minutes before eating any more. Often hunger will go away.
Think long term. Gradual weight loss stays lost. A pound a week is a good rate. Both are achievable, and both are sustainable. Make adjustments as you go along, in case you’re taking in too little or too many calories, but the main thing is not to try for immediate and quick weight loss, but long-term loss.
Stop drinking calories. Calories in soda, coffee, tea, alcohol, juice and other beverages accumulate quickly. Juice, for example, seems healthy, but it doesn’t provide the fiber of fruit and yet has all of the calories. Instead, drink lots of water and if you’re still craving that sweet taste, try supplementing with Sun Wakasa Honey Plus™. This Superfood drink provides a high concentration of Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) in liquid form and adds missing sweetness without adding many calories.
