[quote:1f14812348="BrianG"]. What science to exists the support the purported health benefits of chlorella and spirulina, and what is the basis for Dr. Sears' belief that they help bind heavy metals?[/quote:1f14812348]
Dr. Sears has included chlorella and spirulina in the Hepatic Support formula for its spectrum of phytochemicals, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and chlorophyll. The amounts in this formula are much less than a standard maintenance of 3-4 grams per day suggested by suppliers. The presence of these nutrients does not necessarily support a belief by Dr. Sears that they help bind heavy metals.
To research the science of chlorella and spirulina we suggest searches in Google and at PubMed.com.
