Chlorella – What is it?

Chlorella – Known as the Emerald Food, it is a unique single-celled fresh water dark green microscopic algae with grass-like smell.

Only 2 – 8 microns in diameter, one of the oldest forms of plant life on this planet. More than 3 billion years old.

Chlorella can reproduces itself by cell division at an astonishing rate of 4 new cells every 17 – 24 hours.

HISTORY
Identified in 1890 by a Dutch microbiologist, Martinus W. Beijerinck, One of the most scientifically researched algae in human history.

Studied by Stanford Research Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, Carnegie Institute, NASA, Japan Chlorella Research Center.

The number one selling health food supplement in Japan over 30% of the Japanese population taking it.


Over 10 million people around the world take Chlorella.

Chlorella contains amino acids (protein), enzymes (including pepsin for digestion), vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates.

It contains over 18% Chlorella Growth Factor, high in RNA and DNA, the building blocks of life.

Up to 10% of chlorella can be RNA, while DNA levels can be as high as 3%. Also high in the essential fatty acids, as well as an array of phytonutrients and carotenoids.

AS A FOOD
Chlorella is a whole food – you eat it in its entirety.

Chlorella contains a balance of phytonutrients and co-factors beneficial to overall restoration and maintenance of health.

Each Chlorella cell is a self-sufficient organism because it contains all its life forces within itself.

Chlorella is able to deliver a wide range of nutrition our bodies need with its wealth of vitamins, minerals, protein, amino acids and other vital nutrients.

HEALTH BENEFITS

  • High Chlorophyll content
  • Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)
  • High fiber cell wall
  • Storehouse of nutrients

In Japan, Chlorella is regarded as a functional food, rather than a dietary supplement. A functional food is one that contains all the essential nutrients needed by the human body and can perform many therapeutic functions in the body

The unique structure and contents of Chlorella makes it an excellent detoxifier.

DETOXIFICATION
Detoxification and elimination of toxins are crucial for recovery from health problems and essential achieving for optimum health. Capable of removing alcohol from the liver and heavy metals (such as cadmium, mercury, uranium and arsenic), certain pesticides, herbicides, and polychlorbiphenyls (PCBs) from the body’s tissues.

Chlorella detoxifies the liver, gallbladder and colon, indigestible fibrous outer cell wall has been proven to have the ability to bind with heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, chlordecone, a harmful insecticide and toxins such a PCBs and carry these toxic substances out of the body.

The cleansing of the blood, bowel, and liver begins after Chlorella has been taken regularly for 3 months or more depending on the amount taken.

Large doses of Chlorella will facilitate fecal mercury excretion.

Cooking meat at high temperatures (broiling, frying and barbecuing) causes an interaction between meat proteins and the heat to form heterocyclic amines (HCAs). HCAs are known carcinogens implicated in increased colon cancer.

Chlorella has the highest concentration of chlorophyll of any green food and is also one of the richest sources of beta-carotene and is an excellent source of zinc.

Researches has found that zinc is effective in the prevention of “cadmium induced suppression of the immune system”.

IMMUNE BOOSTER
Chlorella accelerated the recovery of developing cells in colony forming units and restored the population of mature white blood cells.

Chlorella is well known in the Japanese scientific community as a “biological response modifier” — a natural substance that improves the capacity of the body’s immune system.

Chlorella induces higher levels of interferon and stimulates macrophages, cells that actively protect against disease by digesting foreign substances in the body.

Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) unique to chlorella stimulates healing and replacement of cell tissue.

The sugars of the nucleotides include mannose, rhamnose, arabinose, glactose and xylose.
New field of science called glyco biology that is studying the importance of these sugars in immune regulation.

MEMORY BOOSTER
Chlorella is a storehouse of vital nutrients that the brain needs to maintain memory.
The brain has the highest concentration of RNA within the body.

RNA is vital for memory and learning. The brain cells have limited capacity to make nucleosides and nucleotides that are combined by cells to create RNA.

Diet deficient in nucleosides and nucleotides may be a factor in age-related memory loss
Chlorella is a very rich source of nucleosides and nucleotides.

Chlorella is an excellent natural source of the “brain-boosting” nutrient, phosphatidylserine (PS), a phospholipid found on the surface of the brain cell membrane.

Studies on animals and humans have shown that PS supplementation may improve memory and learning abilities. PS supplementation also lightens depression and may delay memory loss associated with Alzhemer’s disease.

Free radicals are toxic time bombs that cause an “energy shortage” in the brain cells causing mental lethargy.

Anti-oxidants are nutrient that can nullify the effects of free radical damages.

Chlorella is packed with antioxidants. A rich natural source of two powerful, memory-enhancing antioxidants, Beta-carotene and chlorophyll.

Chlorophyll is a powerful antioxidant that protects the mitochondria from free radical damage.

Chlorophyll was found to be more effective than vitamin C.

CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH
Chlorella is the richest natural source of chlorophyll, – structure almost identical to that of haemoglobin. Chlorophyll cells have a magnesium molecule at the centre.

Magnesium is essential for the heart to function properly. Chlorella is also a good source of Omega-3 oils, which are known to protect against heart disease.

Research programs have indicated that regular use of chlorella helps guard against heart disease, reduce high blood pressure and lower blood cholesterol levels.

Chlorella is a “cholesterol-cutting superfood.” Studies – long-term use of chlorella helps lower serum cholesterol and reduce “bad” (LDL) cholesterol levels.

Forty-five tablets (nine grams) of chlorella per day of Chlorella can help fight free radical damage that can lead to arterial lesions and plaque buildup associated with atherosclerosis
Chlorella may improve elasticity of arteries.

Chlorella helps take the pressure off of hypertension.

Perfectly created by nature to remove the toxic residue of smoking. Cigarette smoke reduces the blood’s ability to deliver oxygen to the heart, which reduces the heart’s ability to create “energy molecules.” It also increases the blood clotting activity of cells, which could block blood flow and damages arteries by promoting the formation of atherosclerotic lesions and hardened arteries

Smoke-filled air contains cadmium, known to cause all sorts of havoc in the body. Russian researchers found that cadmium, along with other heavy metals, takes part in the activation of blood clotting.

Cadmium is also suspected of contributing to high blood pressure and atherosclerosis.

ANTI CANCER
Chlorella contains beta-carotene, which has been shown to destroy cancer cells.
It also provides antioxidant vitamins C and E and selenium.

Chlorella contains a range of carotenoids that is superior merely to taking a supplement of synthetic beta carotene

Chlorella increases levels of inteferon, one of the body’s greatest natural cancer defences, which in turn stimulates the activity of T-cells and macrophages, thus enhancing the immune system’s ability to combat bacteria, viruses, chemicals and foreign proteins

Chlorella stimulates Interferon, our body’s natural defense against cancer due to its unique cell wall. Different from other sets “green” foods. Induces interferon production in the body, which is important to immune function.

CGF improves resistance to abdominal tumors while increasing the number of immune cells in the abdominal cavity.

Chlorella Increases T-Cells and B-Cells lymphocytes. Chlorella improves fatigue often associated with chemotherapy. White blood cell count is often improved.

ANTI AGING
Chlorella is packed with the most potent combination of purely natural nutrients to detoxify your cells and rejuvenate your body to help you look and feel younger.

Dr Benjamin Frank, author of The No-Aging Diet, suggests that human RNA/DNA production slows down progressively as people age, resulting in lower levels of vitality and increased vulnerability to various diseases. Chlorella contains 3% RNA (ribonucleic acid) and 0.3% DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), making it one of the highest known food substances in nucleic acids.

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
When the functions of the body are balanced, and the processes of assimilation and elimination are working correctly, the body will naturally revert to its ideal weight.

In many people this lack of nutrition results in cravings for more food, which can lead to overeating. Chlorella provides a whole range of essential nutrients.

Sluggish digestion is often one of the contributing causes of unwanted weight gain and obesity.
Chlorella is an effective addition to any weight-loss program because it stimulates peristalsis in the intestines. Chlorella’s ingredients also improve the entire digestive process.

BETTER EYESIGHT
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss for people over the age of fifty-five. Previously, AMD was accepted as an inevitable part of aging. Research now indicates that age-related vision problems such as macular degeneration are linked to nutritional deficiencies.

Harvard researchers found that people with the highest consumption of lutein- and zeaxanthin-rich* foods lowered their risk of macular degeneration by as much as 57%, compared to people who consumed the least amount of these foods.

Chlorella is a good source lutein, lutein and zeaxanthin, alpha-carotene, gamma-carotene, xanthin and lycopene, etc

HOW TO TAKE
For general health maintenance, a daily dose of 3 – 4 grams (15 – 20 tablets of 200 mg each).
The dosage should be increased to 5 – 6 grams (25 – 30 tablets of 200 mg each) for relieve of actual health symptoms.

Chlorella is best taken about half an hour before meals for optimum digestion.

  1. Hi, I’m breastfeeding my baby, is it safe to take Chlorella and Spirulina.
    Thanks
    Lobna

  2. Hi Lobna

    Chlorella and spirulina are whole foods which are full of proteins, vitamins and minerals, so I believe these could only be beneficial for you while breastfeeding. Make sure you take good quality spirulina and chlorella to ensure there are no chemicals. Certified organic would be best. Of course, I’m not a doctor, so I’d always recommend you get your doctor’s advice before making any changes to your diet.
