Eat your way to a spring energy boost

Eat your way to a spring energy boost

As we say goodbye to the winter months which are notoriously associated with various health problems and ailments, Spring offers the perfect opportunity to look at ways to improve your overall wellbeing and ‘spring clean’ your system.

Nutrition is essential for good health, and a lack of energy is often a sign that you are deficient in certain nutrients, including vitamins B12, B6, folic acid and iron. Vitamin B12 is particularly important for the changing seasons, as it contributes to a normal energy yielding metabolism, and helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue. A host of celebrities have already caught onto its benefits; both Madonna and Cheryl Cole have been known to give extra attention to this nutrient to keep them on top form throughout gruelling tour schedules.[i]

Whilst you may not be battling such a gruelling timetable, for anyone wanting to escape the winter energy slump, a nutrient rich diet is a great place to start. Sun Chlorella ‘A’ is a natural whole food which contains an amazing quantity and variety of nutrients. In terms of vitamin B12 content alone, a daily dose of Sun Chlorella ‘A’ contains more vitamin B12 than a 32oz steak, and iron content equivalent to nine cups of spinach (270g). Even supermodels rely on the natural wholefood for an instant boost, with Rosie Huntington Whiteley claims that green juice containing chlorella is “a great way to start the day.[ii]

Amongst its health benefits, Sun Chlorella ‘A’ acts as an ‘intestinal broom’, cleansing the bowel by clinging on to toxins like mercury, lead or pesticides in your intestines and then eliminating them as waste. Waste material in the colon impairs our ability to absorb vitamins and minerals which can affect prevent the immune system from working at its optimum level.  This cleansing of toxins can also help with your energy levels!

Chlorella is…
Chlorella is a microscopic freshwater single-celled green algae dating back from approximately 700 million years ago. It has tough outer cell walls and the ability to reproduce itself at an astonishing rate: from four cells on day one to one billion cells on day 15 in cultivation. This special component is called the Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) and in supplementation, encourages the growth as well as repair of cells and tissues in the body. This process is slowed down by aging but chlorella is believed to help re-stimulate growth.
