Chlorella is a microscopic freshwater plant (Chlorella vulgaris) and is often referred to as one of nature’s ‘green superfoods’. It contains key vitamins, macro-minerals, trace minerals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, significant amounts of protein, iron, chlorophyll, nucleic acids and much more. It is best known for aiding whole body detoxification and general immune system support. Chlorella contains a compound called ‘Chlorella Growth Factor’ which has been shown in research to promote normal cell growth and boost the immune system. In addition Chlorella has been credited with; improving digestion, enhancing mental clarity and bodily strength and promoting a healthy acid /alkaline balance throughout the body.
Green Nutritionals Yaeyama Pacifica Chlorella Powder 120g (also available in larger 250g size) may also help to reduce weight and body fat, assisting in the removal of stored toxins. As our bodies lose weight, toxins are released, and can be reabsorbed. It is important to flush these toxins out of our system as quickly as possible. Chlorella’s ability to surround the toxins and heavy metals that may be stored in our bodies helps to facilitate elimination and prevent re-absorption.
The Yaeyama strain of Chlorella was originally found on Ishigaki Island where it is still grown today and is unique to Yaeyama Pacifica. For over forty years this strain has been improved to deliver excellent flavour and nutritional profile. Total carotenoid and RNA levels, for example, are higher than in competitor products. The tropical climate of Ishigaki Island, 1000 km. south of the mainland, is ideally suited to Chlorella cultivation. Clean air and fresh mountain spring water make for a complete absence of harmful contaminants. Chemical analysis shows Yaeyama Pacifica to have no detectable levels of mercury, lead, pesticide and herbicide. Unlike some Chlorella, Yaeyama Pacifica is grown outdoors in 45metre controlled ponds allowing the Chlorella full benefit of the strong tropical sunlight. Chlorella has a hard indigestible cell wall, which has to be opened to allow its abundant nutrients to be absorbed. Some producers use chemical bleaching, heat treatments or milling to 'crack' the hard wall – these harsh treatments can have a detrimental effect on the valuable nutrients within. Yaeyama Pacifica Chlorella undergoes a unique WaterJet-Spray Cell Wall Technology developed by the grower, to gently open the cell wall for a high 82% digestibility, delivering potency, purity and mild taste.
Holistic Way To Cleanse And Detox
At the heart of Chlorella's health benefits is its ability to naturally cleanse and detoxify. It aids in two separate pathways to detoxification:
- Chlorella’s Microfibre – is a fibrous indigestible outer shell that has been proven to bind with heavy metals and pesticides to facilitate removal of toxins from the body. This fibrous material also supports healthy digestion though the promotion of peristalsis and the encouragement of good intestinal bacteria.
- High Chlorophyll Levels - Chlorella contains up to 5% chlorophyll, the largest amount in any plant. Chlorophyll is a green pigment critical to photosynthesis and allowing plants to create energy from sunlight. Chlorophyll is very similar to heme, the red pigment in blood, only it has magnesium at its molecular core, not iron. This similarity to animal biology allows it to work within the tissues and organs binding to carcinogens and facilitating elimination.
Both Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina and Yaeyama Chlorella are freshwater microalgae and are NOT grown in the ocean. Both are grown on the land in environmentally controlled food-grade ponds where the fresh water quality and purity of the microalgae species can be maintained. Both the islands on which Hawaiian Spirulina (Big Island of Hawaii) and Yaeyama Chlorella (Ishigaki Island) are grown DO NOT receive either low level or high level winds or Ocean currents from the Japanese mainland. Since the Fukishima disaster occurred, continuous independent testing on both products has shown NO detectable radiation.
Consumption can vary with activity levels, state of health and age. Chlorella is a powerful detoxifying food so when starting always take a smaller amount for the first week. Start-up: 1.5 gram (1/2 level teaspoon daily for first week.
