What is Chlorella?

Chlorella is a spherical unicellular freshwater algae, a micro-organism that appeared on earth about 2.5 billion years ago. It is distinguished from other plants by an exceptional concentration of chlorophyll (3 to 5%), which explains its remarkable detoxifying power, which stimulates, among other things, the activity of the liver. It has a high percentage of protein (about 50%) and contains a high proportion of antioxidants that inhibit cell oxidation.

Chlorella is also considered a "superfood" because it is rich in protein, iron, dietary fiber, B vitamins, calcium, omega-3, antioxidants, minerals and complex carbohydrates. These nutrients can help prevent iron deficiency during pregnancy. Chlorella is also used to treat high cholesterol, menstrual cramps, fibromyalgia and depression.

Chlorella is the plant that contains the most chlorophyll and lutein on earth.

A superfood

Immune and intestinal health
A well-studied superfood

A 2007 study by Saiseikai Nara Hospital in Japan suggests that chlorella may help your body produce immunoglobulin A (IgA), a crucial antibody for your immune system. In other words, Chlorella may help keep your immune system strong and your digestive system regular. This is no surprise, since 70-80% of our immune system is found in our gut.

Chlorella Growth Factor
Cellular rejuvenation

Chlorella contains Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), a DNA and RNA complex unique to Chlorella, which provides the building blocks cells need to rebuild, repair and rejuvenate.

Vitamin and Mineral Support
A true superfood

Chlorella is a rich source of the antioxidant vitamin A (beta-carotene), one of the most powerful antioxidant vitamins. It is a good source of vitamin D, active vitamin B12 and iron, and even contains small amounts of magnesium, B2, B6, niacin, folate and phosphorus.
