Raw Organic Chlorella Tablets Information
Chlorella gets its name from the rich quantity of chlorophyll it possesses. As a single-celled, water grown algae chlorella consists primarily of a nucleus and a large amount of directly available chlorophyll, a nutrient vital to the health of our body – making chlorella one of the greatest food substances for rejuvenating the blood and cleansing the bowel and other elimination systems such as the liver.
Considered a first class detoxifying agent, chlorella is capable of removing excess alcohol from the liver, and large doses have been found to massively increase elimination of cadmium and lead (both of which hinder zinc update affecting testosterone levels). Studies in Japan have also found that by taking 4-6 grams of chlorella before you consume alcohol, can prevent a hangover in almost every case.
Great for clearing heavy metals, certain pesticides, herbicides, and polychlorbiphenyls (PCBs) from the body’s tissues, chlorella can also absorb toxins from the intestines, and, combined with its ability to favourably alter the bacterial flora content of the bowel, is able to help relieve chronic constipation and eliminate intestinal gas. Any heavy metal and other chemical toxins in the blood will generally detoxify within three to six months, depending on how much chlorella a person is taking.
Green microalgae are the highest sources of chlorophyll in the plant world and chlorella contains more chlorophyll per gram than any other plant. Of all the green algae studied for chlorophyll so far, chlorella has the highest, often ranging from 3 to 5 percent pure natural chlorophyll.
Chlorella is a wholefood, as it is extremely rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, folic acid, essential fatty acids, polysaccharides, enzymes, and a host of other beneficial compounds. Chlorella contains vitamins A (beta-carotene), C, E, and all of the B vitamins (including B12, which in chlorella may or may not be in a useable form for human consumption). Chlorella is also very rich in the minerals iron and calcium, with one tablespoon providing 320 percent of the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) of iron, and 120 percent of the RDA of calcium. Chlorella also boasts about 60 percent pure digestible protein, making it one of the highest protein sources on the planet- far exceeding animal products like beef, chicken, and fish (18-30 percent protein).
With regards to anti-ageing and longevity, chlorella certainly deserves a mention. Previously believing sardines were the highest food source of essential longevity enhancing RNA (Ribonucleic acid), research in Japan has actually shown ‘chlorella pyrenoidosa’ to be the highest known food source of RNA- with twenty times more RNA than sardines (sardines contain 0.59 percent RNA, chlorella contains 10 percent RNA). Eating foods high in RNA provides material for repair and production of human RNA/DNA, and it is the breakdown of RNA and DNA in the cells that is believed to be a major factor in ageing and degenerative diseases. Other extraordinary sources of RNA and DNA are bee pollen and royal jelly.
Here’s what some medical experts have to say about chlorella…
” Chlorella has been shown to improve immune function in people undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. Chlorella increases macrophage activity, activates both T-cells and B-cells, and has shown antitumour effects. In addition, chlorellan, a substance found in chlorella, stimulates interferon production. “

” Chlorella contains a greater quantity of fatty acids than either spirulina or wild blue-green algae. About 20 percent of these fatty acids are the artery-cleansing, omega-3, alpha-linolenic variety; perhaps this is one reason chlorella has been shown to be so effective in reducing cholesterol in the body and preventing atherosclerosis. “

Taken with meals, chlorella tablets help provide very good digestion and more importantly, better assimilation of nutrients. Three grams per day (or 5-6 tablets) is a good maintenance dosage of chlorella. A person taking chlorella for mercury detoxification would want five to seven grams per day. One teaspoon is the equivalent of five grams (5000mg).
You must add chlorella to your daily nutritional arsenal!
