What is Chlorella? (In Brief) A microscopic, single celled freshwater plant regarded as one of Nature’s green superfoods. One of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet Contains more chlorophyll than any other known plant Contains an abundance of key vitamins, macro and trace minerals, anti-oxidants, all of the essential amino acids, protein, nucleic acids, essential fatty acids and much more. It is the most common supplement taken by the longest living race on earth, the Japanese. A truly wonderful, cleansing and health giving whole food supplement to include in your diet as a complement to our increasingly nutrient deficient western diet. Chlorella is the very best green Superfood to support detoxification, alkalisation and general immune system support. What is Chlorella? (More Detail) Chlorella is a microscopic freshwater plant and is often referred to as one of nature’s ‘green superfoods’.
It is one of the purist and most nutritionally dense foods to be found in nature to the point that, following the end of World War Two it became the subject of intensive research into it’s ability to become a viable food source for the millions of starving people around the globe. Consequently Chlorella became one of the most intensely researched of any food in the world. It contains key vitamins, macro-minerals, trace minerals, anti-oxidants, essential fatty acids, significant amounts of protein, iron, chlorophyll, nucleic acids and much more. Everything contained in chlorella is highly bio-available, non-toxic and extremely good for general health. Chlorella has become known as an excellent food to assist with the process of detoxifying the body as well as being an all round highly nutritious wholefood supplement.
Indeed in Japan interest in Chlorella has focussed largely on it’s detoxifying capabilities where studies demonstrated it’s effectiveness not only against a raft of heavy metals (such as mercury, lead, cadmium and copper), but against PCB’s, dioxin and uranium. In the Ukraine too, immediately after the Chernobyl accident, it was chlorella that was utilised as the supplement that was most likely to assist with the detoxification of those people who had been heavily poisoned with radioactive fallout Chlorella is about 58% protein (including all the essential amino acids essential to supporting human life) and represents over three times the amount of protein available from beef.
It has an abundance of nutrients and is an excellent food resource for maintaining or regaining health and for supporting highly demanding sports training programs. It is the most potent food source of dietary iron known (twelve times more than spirulina). It contains more chlorophyll than any other food source (five times more than spirulina). Chlorella is an excellent source of calcium (three times more than spirulina). Chlorella contains a compound called ‘Chlorella Growth Factor’ which has been shown in research to promote normal cell growth and boost the immune system (and has been researched for it’s anti-aging properties). In addition Chlorella has been credited with; improving digestion, enhancing mental clarity and bodily strength and promoting a healthy acid / alkaline balance in the tissues. Where Does Chlorella Come From? Synergy Chlorella is ecologically and organically grown in large, shallow and nutrient-rich freshwater ponds then carefully dried in a few seconds preserving its nutritional content. For superior digestibility and absorption, the cell walls are ‘cracked’.
To preserve the nutrient and enzyme content, each bottle when packed is nitrogen flushed to eliminate oxygen. No fillers or additives are used anywhere in the process – what you get is 100% pure chlorella
