Chlorella (Chlorella vulgaris) is a single-celled tiny algae that grows in fresh water, and it is also found in dark, green leafy vegetables. Chlorella is considered a whole food, and it's rich in protein, caretenoids (astaxanthin, canthaxanthin, flavoxanthin, loraxanthin, neoxanthin and violaxanthin), enzymes (pepsin) and chlorophyll.
Chlorella has the highest chlorophyll content of any plant in the world. Chlorella has many beneficial effects on the immune system because it contains chlorophyll.
For general maintenance, a daily dose of 3-4 grams is recommended. If it is being taken to relieve actual symptoms, the dosage should be increased to 5-6 grams. It is best taken about half an hour before meals for the optimum digestive benefits.
Our Chlorella Powder goes through a special process gentle enough to preserve the nutritional value yet still crack the hard cellulose wall which surrounds each cell. This cracking of the wall enables us to digest and utilize the nutrients inside.
