What is Chlorella

Chlorella is a small green one-celled algae. Chlorella gets its name from “chlor” for green and “ella” for small. Scientists have been studying this simple plant for the past sixty years and have published over 800 scientific articles about it. Chlorella contains the highest concentration of chlorophyll of any known plant. It also contains natural vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre, nucleic acids, amino acids, enzymes, anti-cancer agents (*1), anti-viral agents and chlorella growth factor (C.G.F). Being present for over 2.5 billion years, it has incredible strength of vital energy for survival. Under fertile growing conditions and strong sunlight, each chlorella cell divides into four new cells within one day. Each new cell contains life supporting elements to make it survive by itself and keep on dividing into four new cells again and again! This most unusual characteristic in chlorella and its contents thus provide very unusual healing properties: it detoxifies, stimulates the immune system, improves bowel function, enhances the body repair, guards cellular integrity and promotes longevity without undesirable side effects.

What benefits can chlorella provide?

According to the scientific studies and from many health professionals, chlorella is effective in:

  1. Detoxifying toxins such as lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, pesticides, insecticides and P.C.B. from the body (some of these chemicals are present in the polluted environment and the food chain that enters the body either knowingly or unknowingly, which can be dangerous to health).
  2. Stimulating the immune system. It has been shown that the hot extract of chlorella stimulates the immune system by producing interferons which are proteins that stimulate macrophage activity. The substance in chlorella responsible for this phenomenon is known as chlorellan which resides in the chemical group of very large branched polysaccharides. This group has been receiving great attention lately for their interferon stimulating qualities. There are many other research papers that have been written on the immune function of chlorella.
  3. Wound healing.
  4. Pancreatitis
  5. Pyorrhea (bleeding of the gums and loose teeth)
  6. P.M.S.
  7. Liver toxicity, hangovers from alcohol consumption, bowel toxicity, constipation, viral infections, ulcers, skin problems, allergies, arthritis, atherosclerosis, cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart problems, low libido, diabetes, depression, hypoglycemia, body odors, hormone imbalance, stress, eczema, jet lag, drug addiction, tobacco withdrawal, herpes simplex, gout, obesity, fibrous cysts, the common cold, flu, Epstein-Barr virus syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, candida yeast associated problems, etc.
  8. Regeneration
  9. Improve energy
  10. Improve memory

Why is chlorella superior to other green products on the market?

Only chlorella contains chlorella cell wall and C.G.F. which are responsible for its detoxification and immunostimulation actions. Barley green juice, spirulina, alfalfa and any other green products do not have these unique features. Chlorella contains more chlorophyll by weight than any other plant, 5 times more chlorophyll than spirulina and 10 times more than alfalfa. It also contains 19 amino acids (building blocks for cell repair and maintenance) in its natural state. It is also the richest source of RNA and DNA among all known food substances; these nucleic acids are essential for repairing damaged genetic material in human cells, protecting health and slowing down the aging process. Chlorella has everything to make itself sustainable so that in a natural environment, each chlorella cell can live and reproduce rapidly by itself. It has tremendous life supporting energy and nutrients. All these unique features make chlorella one of the best health foods for detoxification, immunostimulation and normalization of body function. Also, more scientific researches have been done on chlorella than many other health products to prove its effectiveness.
