CHLORELLA – The Science behind celebrity claims

The Science behind celebrity claims

CHLORELLA

From supermodels Miranda Kerr and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to TV stars Millie Mackintosh and Jennifer Aniston, the green algae supplement chlorella hasn’t been far from celebrities lips over the last few years. It appears however, following discoveries in a recent study, there’s more to the algae’s skin benefits than simply celebrity anecdotes and that we could all get superstar skin by adding a little of chlorella to our lives…

A recent published study looked at the potential cosmetic benefits of different types of chlorella and revealed some surprising results, which support celebrity claims that the algae could give you a glowing complexion. Some of the chlorella tested contained powerful anti-oxidants, molecules that are seen to combat oxygen free radicals (one of the main culprits thought to be behind aging skin and a result of everything from pollution to stress). What was far more exciting however was the discovery that some chlorella had an ability to inhibit an enzyme called elastase. Elastase acts to break down a protein found in our skin called elastin.

When discussing skin and aging, collagen is often the main topic of conversation, but elastin plays an equally important role in keeping our skin looking young. Whilst collagen provides the skin with its firmness, elastin gives it its elasticity and an ability to rebound when pinched or pulled. Less elastin means less elasticity, which leads inevitably to skin sagging and wrinkles. By inhibiting the elastase enzyme, which breaks down elastin, chlorella could provide a powerful tool to help our skin stay young, although no one can promise this means you’ll get supermodel looks!

Sun Chlorella is one of the world’s leading brands and produce a range of fresh water algae supplements, available in both tablet and granule varieties. The granules are perfect for adding to smoothies, sprinkled over cereals and porridge and added to recipes.

One of the reasons Sun Chlorella stands out from the other products on the market is that the fact they use a DYNO®-Mill process, which breaks down the cell walls of the algae (without the use of heat or chemicals which can reduce the quality of the chlorella) to ensure when you use either their products you’re getting the most nutrients possible.
