Health and nutrional benefits of Chlorella

Chlorella is considered to be one of the most concentrated plan foods in existence. It is nature’s richest whole plant source of chlorophyll, DNA and RNA, and contains more than 19 amino acids, including all the essential ones. It also contains the Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), only found in Chlorella. The following are the key health and nutritional benefits of Chlorella.

Chlorella is a green algae that is considered to be one of the most powerful superfoods known to man. Chlorella contains vasts amount of chlorophyll within its cell walls. The cell walls of chlorella are tough and indigestible, so many chlorella producers break the cell walls before selling the product. Broken cell chlorella releases the nutrients inside the cell walls so the human body can use them. Besides being possibly the richest source of chlorophyll on Earth, chlorella is also very high in plant protein. Chlorella contains fifty-eight grams of protein per one hundred grams of weight. By comparison, beef and chicken have twenty-four to twenty-eight grams of protein per one hundred grams of weight. Chlorella is a pain reliever, reduces hypertension, enhances the immune system in some cases, and chelates heavy metals.


Discovery and development of Chlorella

Chlorella was one of the first life forms to exist on our planet 3.5 billion years ago. It was first discovered in 1890 by a Dutch biologist, Beyerinck. The natural wealth of the plant immediately excited scientific interest. During the First World War a German microbiology specialist, Hardener Linder, undertook an experiment, feeding German troops with Chlorella. The end of the war, and the fact that in its natural state Chlorella is mostly indigestible, led to unsatisfactory results in this first test. During the Second World War Lindner carried out a second experiment, once again with little success. Chlorella was only became available to consumers at the end of the 1970s, a technique which breaks open the cellular envelope has rendered Chlorella 80% digestible.


What is Chlorella?

Chlorella is a green single-celled freshwater alga, found to have many health benefits. Its benefits have long been acknowledged in the Far East, where it has been one of the most popular food supplements for nearly 30 years. However, it has only recently become available in the West. Chlorella measures about 2 to 10 µm in diameter, similar to human blood cells. It grows most rapidly in areas with plenty of sunlight, clean air and fresh water, and the biggest producers of Chlorella are in the Far East.
