What is chlorella?
Chlorella is a single-celled green algae, and its name literally means "green" (chloros) and "small" (ella) in Latin. It grows in fresh water, and it's most naturally abundant in Asia. Experts say chlorella has been around for at least 2 billion years. But remarkably, due to its microscopic size, its brilliance as a food seems to have gone undiscovered until the end of the 19th century. Chlorella is well known for its ability to help cleanse and detoxify the body. It has been found to attach itself to heavy metals, and pollutants in the body, escorting them free from our system.
Chlorella's bodily benefits
This freshwater algae absolutely packed with goodness. Typically, it contains more than 20 different minerals and vitamins! Take a look at its amazing nutritional profile and other facts right here.
The benefits of Chlorella are not just limited to detoxification. There are many other testimonies and research strongly supporting its use to help aid weight loss, digestion, cell renewal, reduction of the side effects of radiation treatment, cold and flu prevention and much more...
We've cracked it!
Although chlorella has a tough cell wall that makes the raw product relatively indigestible, cellulase enzyme supplementation and processing methods that break this cell wall down have now made Chlorella readily available as a superfood. And our team were delighted to be one of the first companies to supply chlorella powder and tablets in the UK and Europe!
In terms of how to take chlorella powder, our cell-wall-cracked product is a complete food appropriate for anyone over two years old in the daily dosage range of one to two teaspoons per day. Some experts suggest taking chlorella around half an hour before meals to improve digestion.
