Chlorella, a single-cell fresh water algae, is one of the oldest forms of plant life. Native to Taiwan and Japan, it contains more life-supporting chlorophyll than any other plant. It is often referred to as a near-perfect food with a wide array of potential health benefits.
Located in its nucleus is a unique complex called Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF). CGF is rich in nucleic acids RNA and DNA, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, polysaccharides and beta glucans. Because about one-eighth of chlorella is CGF, chlorella is an excellent source of CGF and the most concentrated food source of nucleic acids. Superfood chlorella supports your health in many important ways*:
- Supports your normal detoxification processes*
- Supports healthy cellular aging*
- Supports your cell’s energy production*
- Supports your immune system health*
- Helps maintain blood sugar levels already in the normal range*
- Supports healthy cognitive function*
- Helps support normal liver function*
- Supports cardiovascular health, including blood pressure levels already in the normal range*
- Helps maintain healthy blood lipid values, such as cholesterol and triglycerides*
- Supports an already healthy inflammatory response*
- Helps protect against the negative effects of oxidative stress and promotes normal tissue repair and recovery from exercise*
- Supports optimal metabolism*
- Supports digestive health by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria*
Chlorella contains about 58 percent protein, which is higher than many other plant protein sources like soybeans. Chlorella contains all of the essential amino acids. It is considered a rich source of the amino acid arginine, which aids in the production of friendly nitric oxide (NO). This ubiquitous signaling molecule affects many things in your body including blood vessel, endothelial lining, and vascular regulation and natural vaso-dilation and immune and respiratory function.
Chlorella’s reputation has made it quite popular for detoxification support. It binds powerfully onto heavy metal toxins within the digestive tract and from dental fillings and implants. This helps removal of unwanted toxins.
Chlorella is also very helpful with removal of damaging heterocyclic amines. These highly reactive compounds are produced when amino acids, sugars, and creatine found in beef, pork, poultry, and fish react with high heat. When you consume these foods, the amine compounds must be detoxified or they cause tissue damage. Chlorella can inactivate or block the absorption of heterocyclic amines in the digestive tract.
Methylmercury found commonly in fish and shellfish, is highly toxic to the nervous system. The fibre naturally found in chlorella with CGF and other nutrients bind onto the toxin, transform it, and excrete it out through the stool.
To benefit from chlorella, you must be able to digest and utilise it. This Fermented Chlorella is highly-digestible and bioavailable due to its soft, thin cell membranes created by unique fermentation and advanced closed tank cultivation methods. Because this Fermented Chlorella is kept clean throughout a strictly sterilised and controlled processing system, the risk of heavy metal and other toxin contamination is significantly reduced. This Fermented Chlorella contains an added Trace Mineral Complex from two varieties of marine red algae: Lithothamnion glaciale and Lithothamnion tophiforme, harvested from the North Atlantic seabed, to help your trace mineral needs.
Chlorella provides a wealth of nutrients and detoxification support however, always make sure that the chlorella you consume is grown in a clean environment. Because of its sensitivity to bind onto toxins, make sure that what you consume is not loaded with naturally occurring environment toxins like xenoestrogens and BPA.
