What is it?
It has lived through so many global changes—fungus, bacteria, pollution, climate change. To have survived that long, chlorella must possess a trait that made it tough, a survivor. This ability to endure may be because of its simple yet powerful design and unusual structure.
For instance, its cell walls are so durable that heavy metals and toxins cannot penetrate it. Instead, the cell wall materials bind with the toxins to be safely carried out of the body.
Chlorella also has CGF (Chlorella Growth Factor) in the nucleus of its cells which make it reproduce at an astonishing rate ensuring the survival of its species.
What are its nutritional content and health benefits?
The traits that make this tiny algae survive that long can luckily be enjoyed by people who eats this superfood. Chlorella benefits are almost endless and incorporating it in your diet will help the body is many ways:
Chlorella can help detoxify the body of heavy metals such as mercury, lead and even arsenic through a process called “chelation.” How?
These heavy and toxic metals—which can wreak havoc to the cells over time—bind with the chlorophyll contained in abundance in chlorella. After binding with chlorophyll, the toxins become inert. It is then that they are removed from the bloodstream and simply excreted from the body without further interaction with body cells or organs.
This almost microscopic algae is also packed with antioxidants (alpha-lipoic acid, selenium, Vitamins C, D, E and K) and carotenoids (alpha-carotene, lutein, Vitamin A) that work together to protect cells from free radical damage.
CGF—the thing that makes chlorella reproduce quickly—promotes cell growth in humans and even repairs it. It also helps RND/DNA in the production of proteins and enzymes. It is this same characteristic that when ingested by humans, would facilitate healing and regeneration of our body.
The health benefits of chlorella are immense. It stimulates the immune system and increases the cell’s ability to resist infection. It is high in magnesium which is essential in regulating blood sugar, blood pressure and normal heart, nerve and muscle function. Chlorella is also a significant source of protein. Its protein content is over 50% higher than that of meat.
What makes our chlorella different?
We take extra care in growing and cultivating our organic chlorella because it is the basis of the final product we are going to produce.
No chemicals are used to grow our chlorella—not pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. They are simply grown under natural sunlight with the water being gently mixed to make sure new chlorella cells are evenly distributed.
We have certifications and the approval of EU organic certification bodies to prove our chlorella is certified organic with no taint of any chemicals.
