Chlorella & Spirulina 2-in-1: the ideal supplement for Olympians

This summer’s Olympic games in London has set the stage for many moments of international sporting glory. But the event may also witness more than its fair share of unusual, behind-the-scenes techniques for speeding up recovery and boosting performance.

In 2012, for instance, some elite athletes and sportspeople may use a highly specialised technique called whole body cryotherapy, where the body is briefly exposed to extremely low temperatures of around -80ºC to -120ºC. Sports scientists believe that, when used after a competition or training session, this freezing technique helps to relieve inflammation and pain, as well as speed up the removal of lactic acid and promote the release of endorphins.

There is, however, a chill-free alternative. Nature Complete Chlorella & Spirulina 2-in-1 is an algae-based supplement that provides a wide range of nutrients that are beneficial for Olympians, including vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and amino acids. Among the nutrients are several necessary for energy release – including magnesium and iron – as well as chlorophyll, which is believed to help flush out toxins and heavy metals that may cause fatigue.

Comprising chlorella – a green, single-celled alga – and spirulina – a microscopic, blue-green alga – Nature Complete Chlorella & Spirulina 2-in-1 is also a rich source of protein. Indeed, up to 70 percent of the algae made up of complete protein, which is needed for energy production and muscle building.

Repair and recover

A substance found in Nature Complete Chlorella & Spirulina 2-in-1 that may also be extremely beneficial to Olympians is Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), which was discovered in Japan during the 1950s. CGF is thought to be responsible for chlorella’s remarkable ability to expand rapidly by dividing its cells into four every 20 to 24 hours.

This unique ingredient is believed to accelerate cellular regeneration within the human body as well as help repair damaged tissue – which is something every athlete and sportsperson needs during a punishing competition schedule or after an intense training session.

Experts claim one of the reasons CGF may help heal damaged tissues quickly and effectively is that it’s a rich source of the nucleic acids RNA and DNA. Having optimum levels of RNA and DNA in the body is thought to help protect vital cell processes – plus ideal levels of RNA and DNA may help the body use nutrients more effectively, which also helps to speed up cell and tissue repair.

So if more energy, better performance and reduced recovery times are on your wish list – whether you’re an Olympian, a professional sportsperson or a keen amateur – taking Nature Complete Chlorella & Spirulina 2-in-1 could make this summer of sport your best yet.



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.
