Product Description

Details

What is Chlorella?
Chlorella is form of freshwater algae originating from the Chlorellaceae family. It has been increasingly used as a supplement due to an array of nutritional qualities. Chlorella is similar to the widely popular Spirulina, providing a rich, plant-based source of protein and minerals such as iron among a host of antioxidants and phytonutrients (1). Moreover, Chlorella is also believed to be among the richest dietary sources of chlorophyll available! This is one of the reasons that the aquatic superfood has been increasingly incorporated into the diet, since the 1950s (2). The introduction of Chlorella to was based on the population boom in the ’50-’60s, and the increased need for a universal food source that could potentially prevent world hunger (3). One of the possible food sources was Chlorella, because of the unique and diverse nutritional profile that the marine superfood provides.

Health benefits of Chlorella
Our organic Chlorella consists of approximately 55% protein! You heard that right, more than half of the entire content is protein! It is also known as a ‘complete’ protein source containing all nine essential amino acids (4). Of course, because you take it in small dosages it is not exactly a natural protein shake. But it all adds up! This is one of the reasons that our Chlorella is widely used to supplement vegetarian and vegan diets.
One of the major benefits of Chlorella can be seen in its ability to boost and stimulate the immune system (5). Another study found that Chlorella, when consumed regularly, improved immune function in athletes following intense exercise. These studies highlight the protective effects the superfood may have in preventing illness, infection and burnout (6).
Like Spirulina, it also provides a powerful punch of iron which is another common concern among vegans and vegetarians. However, everybody needs these nutrients, not just plant-based eaters. Iron is essential for oxygen delivery around the body and the reduction of fatigue and tiredness (7).
Chlorella also provides a fantastic way to ensure that you consume enough antioxidants and phytonutrients on a daily basis (1). These nutrients are important because they help to detoxify harmful substances that accumulate in the body. Supplementing Chorella has been shown to improve antioxidant concentrations in the blood (8).
Among the plentiful antioxidants in Chlorella is a pigment known as chlorophyll. In fact, Chlorella is believed to provide more chlorophyll than any supplements currently available! This is the pigment contained within all plants which they utilise to produce all of their nutrients. Remember photosynthesis? In humans, chlorophyll has been shown to be a highly beneficial nutrient with powerful antioxidant capabilities.
