Chlorella is thought to be the most thoroughly researched food in history and is recognized as having the highest chlorophyll content of all known plants. It is a fresh water, single-cell green algae that is renowned for its health giving properties such as vitamins, minerals, fiber, nucleic acids, amino acids, enzymes, CGF (Chlorella Growth Factor) and other beneficial nutrients.
Our Chlorella is produced in Asia by the world's largest producers of Chlorella Pyrenoidosa. This algae has been utilized for thousands of generations, which insures the integrity of the strain's purity will stay intact without degenerating.
Although some positive effects of taking Chlorella may be felt immediately, such as correcting constipation and bad breath, Chlorella's full nutritive and detoxifying abilities will take 3-6 months to be fully appreciated.
The fibrous materials in Chlorella may also improve digestion and promote the growth of beneficial aerobic bacteria in the stomach.
Chlorella gets its name from the high amounts of chlorophyll it possesses, the highest of any plant known. Chlorophyll cells are nearly identical to hemoglobin (red blood cells) with one exception: Chlorophyll has a Magnesium molecule at that center of it; hemoglobin has an Iron molecule at the center of it. This is important because Magnesium is essential for the heart to function properly. Every time our heart beats, it is utilizing magnesium to do so. Chlorella contains enzymes such as chlorophyllase and pepsin, which are digestive enzymes. Enzymes perform a myriad of functions in the body. In fact, you can not even blink without the presence of enzymes.
