Chlorella Powder - Organic
Mix organic chlorella powder into a glass of orange juice or blend it into smoothies to benefit from the natural detoxing effects whilst giving your diet an added vitamin boost from this ancient algae.
Chlorella is a great source of protein – over 50% of its dry weight – as well as conferring many health benefits due to its high content of chlorophyll and other vitamins and nutrients.
The high levels of chlorophyll in chlorella have led to it becoming a popular component of detoxing regimes, as it is believed that chlorella can bind to heavy metals within the intestinal tract, allowing them to be safely excreted from the body. Chlorella also contains the carotenoid polymer sporopollenin within its cell walls, which studies suggest is able to absorb toxins and helps chlorella to remove further poisonous elements from the body.
Our organic chlorella powder also contains 2g of chlorella growth factor per 100g; the compound reputed to be responsible for chlorella’s ability to reproduce at such a high rate. CGF is reported to increase the rate of regeneration of new cells when ingested, and may help to increase cell rejuvenation and repair. Chlorella is also a source of the minerals zinc and iron, needed for a healthy immune system and making new red blood cells capable of carrying oxygen around the body, and contains the antioxidant vitamins C and E, which can reduce the production of cell damaging free radicals. Chlorella powder also provides the B vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12 which contribute to maintaining a healthy immune system.
Recommended Dosage: Upto 3 grams a day, increasing dosage as body becomes accustomed to effect.
