What Is Chlorella?

After reading this article, you will not only know what Chlorella is, but you will also understand what it can do for you and your health.

Chlorella is a green algae that thrives in fresh water and intense sunlight. (Some manufacturers grow it under artificial light indoors which is NOT our preference.) It is a single celled plant that is so small it cannot be seen by the naked eye. It has apparently been around on this planet for the last 3.5 billion years. For a plant to have survived for this long it must have learned some good tricks along the way. It's a survivor! In fact, the cell multiplies at a rate of four times every 20 hours. Do the math on that and you'll see how quickly one single cell could take over the world in just a few years.  :)

The specific algae we are talking about here is just one out of about 70,000 species. It is called Chlorella Pyrenoidosa. It was discovered about a hundred years ago by a Dutch microbiologist. Since that time, a huge amount of research has been done, especially in Asia. This highly nutritious green superfood is grown today in large freshwater ponds. This ensures a well-controlled environment for optimum quality. These pollution-free environments supply us with a pure product that is totally safe to take and highly nutritious.

Chlorella manufacturers in Taiwan in particular have been perfecting this technique for some 45 years. They are very good at it. Some might say that it would be better grown in a natural environment. But, most of the natural waterways in tropical locations are terribly polluted creating inferior products. We prefer not to eat harmful bacteria with our health supplements, thank you very much. Chlorella is processed in such a way that all the nutrients and enzymes remained unharmed. This gives us a highly potent product that is extremely beneficial to the body.

Is Chlorella Nutritious?

Yes, this amazing green food is highly nutritious. It contains over 60% protein - that's over 2X the protein of beef - and it's not just any old protein. This is a complete, easily digestible protein that is well suited to humans. It contains all the amino acids you need for perfect health, even the essential ones. It also provides carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, fiber, antioxidants, RNA and DNA, its own unique growth factor and a wide variety of other substances that give superior health. All these nutrients work together to maintain excellent body health, prevent disease and enhance recuperation.

Why Is It Important We Take Chlorella?

With all the processed foods, pollution and the sad state of the environment these days, our bodies are suffering. Most diets are lacking the nutrients we need for good health. When this happens, disease can set in and take hold. When the body is supplied with everything it needs for its survival, it gets well. It's as simple as that. The body is very good at taking care of itself given the correct materials. Chlorella supplies those materials.

What Is Chlorella's Ability To Fight Off Disease?

Because of it's pH balancing effect, Chlorella kills off harmful bacteria that invade an unhealthy body. It also supports the growth of friendly bacteria making it an effective, natural probiotic.

What Does Chlorella Do To Detoxify The Body?

With the environment as it is today, our bodies can suffer with severe toxic buildup. These toxins, like DDT, pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals (Cadmium, Mercury, Lead etc.), create havoc in the body. Chlorella cells absorb these pollutants, hold onto them and transport them out of the body. Chlorophyll's detoxifying properties have been known about for a very long time.
