Chlorella is a freshwater green microalgae. It is a source of Vitamins A, C, B12, Iron, Magnesium and Zinc as well as a host of antioxidants.
Chlorella is a source of high quality, easily digested vegetarian protein. Its vibrant green colour is due to the concentration of chlorophyll found in the algae.
Besides its incredible nutritional profile, it has been traditionally used to promote alkalinity and detoxification. Chlorella possesses a tough outer cell membrane. In order to ensure optimal digestibility, bioavailability and absorption of Chlorella’s incredible nutrition, the cell wall must be broken. Through a “state of the art” production process, the digestibility and absorption is increased up to 80% compared to that of traditionally processed Chlorella.
Researchers in Japan and Korea are finding that Chlorella intake has a positive effect on blood cholesterol, blood sugar and appetite control. Studies show that chlorella also has the power to remove toxins from the body.
