You know I love my greens. Kale, amazing grass and now sun chlorella. Whats next? Your guess as is good as mine….but I’ll try it.

I myself, was not really familiar with chlorella so I’ll fill you in a bit. Chlorella is a fresh-water strain of green algae. Appetizing, right? It is thought that sun chlorella can help to detoxify your body. The chemicals that we consume (through pesticides, etc.) bind to the algae and are then excreted from the body through sweat, urination, etc. I think this is very interesting and I’m a sucker for things like this!

It contains chlorophyll, vitamin C, pro-vitamin A (beta-carotene), chlorophyll, lutein, thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), pyridoxine (B6), niacin, pantothenic acid, folic acid, vitamin B12, biotin, choline, lipoic acid, and inositol; certain minerals including: phosphorus, calcium, zinc, magnesium,and iron; protein, dietary fiber, nucleic acids, and omega fatty acids. (from the website)

Like:

  • Small tablet size! So often supplements such as this one are HUGE
  • I feel like I’m doing something beneficial for my body (above and beyond the everyday type stuff!)
  • The testimonials on the website – love hearing stories from healthy, happy people (again, sucker!!)
  • Just like other green supplements, I love having a back-up if I’m traveling, etc. and not able to get as many vegetables, but still get the nutrients
  • They offer a pH Test Kit – pH balance in the body is something that I find very interesting – I’ve been wanting to find out what my pH levels are

Wish:

  • The serving size wasn’t so large, I don’t take 15 (recommended) tablets every day
  • The claims weren’t as…lofty…I’m a bit of a skeptic and then a believer all rolled into one!
  • It’s a bit pricey, but I’ve never really been one to put a price on my health

 

Do you like trying supplements like this? Are you a believer?

daily eats: 5.28.11

I have to admit, I kind of love doing the daily eats posts from time to time – I hope you do too! Weekends are often quite different in terms of eating for me…no 6am yoga (thankfully!), breakfasts at home, hopefully made by the Taster and perhaps one my favorite things? Coffee out of a

kitchen gadget: juicer

Getting a juicer was beyond exciting for me as I love love LOVE fresh juice, but at $7/juice – it can be a rather expensive habit. For the most part I love it, but am still learning the ins and outs, what we like in juice (the Taster does NOT like wheat grass powder mixed

review: go picnic

I first saw the Go Picnic products at Expo West this Spring and with life about to get even more hectic, I thought they would be the perfect thing to try out. I wasn’t sure how I would do with little “snacks” but thought it would be easy enough to add an easy salad for a well-rounded

garlic gold balsamic dressing review

review: garlic gold balsamic dressing

I’ve heard a number of great things about Garlic Gold and with a combo of garlic and olive oil I’m not sure how you could go wrong. My life wouldn’t be complete with out the two. Honestly. If my memory serves me, I tried this years ago at the first Natural Products Expo I attended

review: rokit fuel

I was a little hesitant to try out Rokit Fuel cereals because I do not consider myself to be an endurance athlete and I had gotten the feeling that is who Rokit Fuel is geared towards. (I’m much more yogi than runner ) And while some may think 370 calories for oatmeal is a lot,

artichoke, spinach and white bean sandwich

Kind of a mouthful… But trust me, you are going to want some of this mouthful. When I saw this sandwich idea in Whole Living Magazine I decided to make it right away – it fits a lot of my (impossible) lunch criteria! It was amazing. It also happens to be perfect to take to
