It seems like everyone is trying to find the fountain of youth these days, whether it be through pricey cosmetics and creams, or invasive surgeries like botox. But what the average person doesn’t realize is that the fountain of youth has always been around and is found naturally in superfoods like chlorella, one of 25,000 species of algae found throughout the world and in foods and supplements everywhere.
Don’t let the name turn you off. Algae by definition is simply a plant without roots, stems, branches, or leaves, and we eat plants in some form or another every day. Chlorella has the highest amount of chlorophyll of any plant, giving it its name. This abundance of chlorophyll also helps give it some amazing health and medicinal properties.
If you want an in-depth look at exactly what chlorella is and the benefits and side effects of this superfood, check out our blog, "Keep Your Brain Healthy and Toxin Free With Chlorella," but for an explanation of how you can use chlorella to be your fountain of youth for anti-aging, read on!***insert image***
Chlorella is an Antioxidant
What is an antioxidant, and why should you care about it? The quick and easy definition is that an antioxidant is a substance (sometimes man-made, sometimes natural) that can prevent or delay cell damage. They can be found in natural foods that contain Vitamin C or E, for instance, or in supplements containing vitamins that they are found in.
Antioxidants have been known to defend against free radicals, highly unstable molecules that occur when you are in the sun, around cigarette smoke or pollution, or even when you exercise, since you create them naturally then.
Many studies have shown the importance of antioxidants in keeping your body healthy, and even bringing it back to a healthy state from an illness.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institute of Health published an article, “Significance of Antioxidant Potential of Plants and its Relevance to Therapeutic Applications,” which focused on an analysis of plants with antioxidants and how they affect the human body.
The results showed that “supplementation of external antioxidants or boosting endogenous antioxidant defenses of the body is known to be a promising method to improve the free radical linked pathophysiology of diseases.” In other words, adding supplements that contain antioxidants, like Momental Nootropics, boosts your body’s defense against illnesses.

Chlorella is a Superfood for Many Health Benefits, Too
Your diet alone is most likely not enough for you to be getting all of the nutrients that you need, but throwing some chlorella in there helps cover the majority of your essential nutrients in one little ingredient.
Chlorella, according to Healthline in their article “10 Reasons to Add Chlorella to Your Diet,” contains amino acids - which lead to fat loss, and protein - which can help you stay fuller longer and eventually lose weight. The dietary fiber in this tiny plant aids in digestion by promoting “the growth of healthy intestinal bacteria, flora and probiotics”, which also helps with weight loss and gut health in general.
Vitamins, minerals and beta-carotene abound in chlorella, and your body needs all of these to perform optimally. With the proper vitamins and nutrients, your body can create energy, manage your blood sugar and your cholesterol properly, and even improve your metabolism.
These nutrients all work together to help your systems function the way they are intended to, but the way most of our bodies do not run due to processed food, environmental exposure, stress and the lack of proper nutrition.
Adding these important nutritional must-haves to your diet can change your entire life for the better, and it’s easy to do with Momental Nootropics.
Where Can You Find Chlorella?
Fruits and vegetables are natural sources of antioxidants, but they are found extensively in chlorella. In fact, according to the research study “Chlorella - The Most Exciting Nutritional Discovery on Planet Earth,” chlorella “... is a complete protein where it contains all the eight essential amino acids needed by the body with the other non-essential amino acids.”
So basically, if you have enough chlorella, which you actually get every day in your Momental Nootropics, you can be assured you are getting all of the amino acids your body needs in one easy stop!
You can always add more, though, if anti-aging is your focus, by eating specific foods that contain chlorella and similar superfoods. Anti-aging is just one component that Biohacking seeks to address. If you're just starting out, Biohacking For Beginners can get you on the right track.
