Chlorella is a natural whole food supplement derived from freshwater single-celled green alga, super-concentrated with key vitamins & antioxidants including: vitamin C, pro-vitamin A (beta-carotene), chlorophyll, lutein, thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), pyridoxine (B6), niacin, pantothenic acid, folic acid, vitamin B12, biotin and more.
This species of green algae that grows in fresh water, emerged over 540 million years ago, and was the first form of plant with a well-defined nucleus. There are fossils from the pre-Cambrian period that clearly indicate the presence of chlorella.
There are thousands of research papers on chlorella from medical institutions, scientific journals, and universities. At one time, NASA even earmarked chlorella to be grown on the international space station.
So how can Chlorella help you?
Chlorella, is an excellent source for detoxification. It works by effectively filtering out toxins from your body. Chlorella has the powerful ability to help purify your body whatever pesticide may be in the food that you are eating they can be absorbed by the chlorella, and may not even get a chance to be absorbed into your body. These damaging chemicals in the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe bind to the chlorella, and are then excreted through our stool, urine, and sweat. One serving of Sun Chlorella is equivalent to one serving of fresh green vegetables (without the pesticides).
While Chlorella supplement is an excellent detoxification agent, that’s not all. There are many other ways it can benefit you
Boosts your immune system
o Provides your body with an added defense mechanism
o Helps strengthen your overall immune system response
Helps you better digest your food
o Delivers enzymes such as pepsin and chlorophyllase ,which promote your healthy digestion
o Helps support an efficient elimination system by boosting growth of beneficial flora in your intestinal tract
Freshens your breath
o Helps freshen your breath with chlorophyll
o Aids in reducing elimination odors
Aids your body in its natural removal of potential toxins from your system
o Acts as an efficient detoxification agent to help rid your body of toxins
o Serves as an “intelligent” algae by not binding to (and therefore not removing) essential nutrients you need
Delivers a natural antioxidant in the form of beta-carotene
o Helps boost your immune system with its antioxidant content
o Provides your body with potential added defense against free radicals
This little green plant is a nutrient-dense superfood. It contains 60% protein, 18 amino acids (including all the essential amino acids), and various vitamins and minerals. Its deep geen color comes from its extremely high chlorophyll content. Chlorella contains the highest amount of chlorophyll of any known plant.
What are the specific benefits that chlorophyll can provide you?
Here are just a few benefits you may experience from chlorophyll
• Aids you in processing more oxygen
• Cleanses key elimination systems like your bowel, liver, and blood
• Helps purify your blood and clean away toxins
• Aids you in promoting optimal blood pressure
• Supports elimination of molds in your body
• Helps neutralize bad air you might breathe in
• Promotes growth and repair of your tissues
A key component derived from the nuclei of the algae, unique to chlorella is Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF). CGF is named for its growth-stimulating properties. Researchers have discovered that CGF is produced by chlorella during the intense photosynthesis that enables chlorella to grow so rapidly. In fact, it actually gives the chlorella cell the ability to quadruple itself every 20 to 24 hours, which explains to some degree why it has been on planet earth for over 540 million years.
Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) is a nucleotide-peptide complex that has an abundance of naturally occurring glucose, mannose, arabinose, galactose, xylose, proteins and amino acids such as glutamine, alanine serine, glycine, praline and asparagines. This powerful plant-derived substance also contains vitamins, polysaccharides, beta-glucans, and an abundance of nucleic acids. Polysaccharides have the ability to release compounds in your body’s own bacteria-stopping macrophage cells. Nucleic acids are the basic building blocks of life, and are critical to keeping your natural defense system working in peak condition. The powerful CGF may help to enhance your body’s natural defense system activity, help to remove the multitude of impurities in your body, and renew cellular strength and integrity.
There are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of chlorella supplements on the market today… but there are only a few great ones out there… and even fewer utilize the advanced processing technique of the broken cell wall chlorella formula.
Although chlorella is considered to be nature’s most nutrient-dense food, the drawback is its low digestibility rate. This is due to the tough outer cell wall, which must be completely broken to get to the nutrients inside. Many companies have tried to solve this problem by using heat and chemicals, but these procedures negatively affect the nutritional content of chlorella. After years of research, Sun Chlorella “A” has developed a unique process of pulverizing the cell wall utilizing a patented mill machine. This system does not use heat or chemicals. This patented system assures your maximum digestion and absorption.
