March is here and an Irishman’s thoughts immediately turn to St. Patrick’s Day and the wearing of the green. Here at Perfect Supplements we turn to the taking of the greens—Aquatic Greens that is. Most health conscious consumers are familiar with the benefits of eating greens, especially green leafy vegetables. But how many know about the phenomenal health benefits of Aquatic Greens? Perfect Aquatic Greens is a “perfect” combination of two superfoods —50% Spirulina and 50% Chlorella— containing over 100 nutrients that our bodies need every day.
Let’s take a closer look at these amazing greens. Spirulina, a spiral shaped blue-green alga, grows naturally in warm fresh water ponds and lakes. It is a complete protein with all eight essential amino acids as well as huge amounts of Vitamin B12, B complex, beta carotene, iron, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Spirulina also contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), the nutrient found in breast milk. Chlorella, a green single-cell micro alga, also grows naturally in fresh water. It gets its name from the very high concentration of chlorophyll, the compound responsible for making our plants green. As a vegetarian protein source, Chlorella surpasses meat, fish, and eggs. It contains Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, iron, beta-carotene, copper and zinc.
One of the most important health benefit is its detoxifying ability. Our bodies can accumulate trace amounts of heavy metals, such as mercury, and environmental toxins, such as pesticides, through our food, water, and the air we breathe. Significant amounts of these pollutants can lead to serious health problems. Chlorella bonds to these heavy metals and toxins and then eliminates them from our bodies.
Perfect Supplements offers Aquatic Greens in a convenient vegetable capsule. But due to high customer demand, we will be coming out with Aquatic Greens powder at the end of the month. The powdered Aquatic Greens will be a perfect addition to your smoothies. In Japan, Chlorella is added to tea, juice, soup, yogurt, noodles and many other foods. The Japanese have valued the health benefits of Chlorella since the 1940’s. So isn’t it time for everyone to start the “taking of the greens” this St. Patrick’s Day?
