Our Chlorella is Broken Cell Wall chlorella
Scientific Name: Chlorella vulgaris
Chlorella is one of the oldest forms of plant life on earth. It has the highest chlorophyll content of any known plant which gives Chlorella its characteristic deep green colour. The name Chlorella is derived from the Lation “chlor” for green and “ella” for small. Even though Chlorella has existed on the earth since its beginning, it was discovered in 1890 by a Dutch microbiologist M.W Beijerinck and was not closely studied until the 1940’s. Japan became the first world pioneer in developing the technology to commercially produce Chlorella.
Chlorella has a tough outer cell wall making the nutrients inside the cell virtually inaccessible. It is completely indigestible by humans as we simply do not have the enzymes to break down its cell wall. Therefore, it is imperative that the manufacturing process breaks down the tough outer cell wall for you, as this is the only way to make the Chlorella biologically available to remove toxins from your body.
Chlorella is a “green food,” a single-celled, micro-algae, that boasts a high chlorophyll content that helps cleanse our blood and tissues making it a useful detoxification tool. Its molecular structure allows it to bond to metals, chemicals and some pesticides. When Chlorella is taken into your body, its natural action will bind it to lingering heavy metals, chemicals and pesticides found in your digestive tract, which is your body’s pathway to your bloodstream where these harmful toxins are delivered and deposited into your body’s cells.
So Chlorella first and foremost will help your body eliminate unwanted metals and toxins. But it does more than that. Chlorella is one of the most widely studied food supplements in the world. It has also been extensively studied as a food source since it is made up of a whopping 50 percent protein and is considered a complete amino acid-based food. Even NASA has studied using Chlorella as the one of first whole foods in space on the international space station!
Studies in Japan have shown Chlorella may help reduce body fat percentage and may be useful in fighting obesity and weight related diabetes. It may also help reduce both cholesterol and hypertension. Chlorella’s cleansing action on your bowel and other elimination channels, as well as its protection of your liver, also helps to promote clean blood. And clean blood helps assure metabolic waste gets efficiently carried away from your tissues.
