Botanical name: Chlorella vulgaris
Country of Origin: China
Production: Our organic Chlorella is sustainably grown and processed in a GMP-certified facility on Hainan Island, a tropical island in the South China Sea, long-acclaimed for its pure water, pristine beaches and clean air. (The acronym GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practices, and to be GMP certified means that the manufacturer has demonstrated a strong regulatory commitment and compliance to international GMP standards.) This chlorella is routinely tested and reviewed by our supplier to ensure that the product meets all organic agriculture specifications.
Qualities: Chlorella is a freshwater microalga that was one of the first lifeforms on earth. It is indigestible by humans unless its cell walls are broken.The process used to break cell walls is a gentle milling process that eliminates light and heat to preserve nutrients. We offer broken-cell chlorella for improved absorption and digestion.
Chlorella can provide the body with key nutrients, including a vast array of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), and is a great source of plant based complete protein (about 60%). It is one of the richest sources of the green photosynthetic pigments, chlorophyll-a and chlorophyll-b, and it is known to neutralize toxins, bind metals in the body so they can be eliminated, enhance immune function, and boost cardiovascular health. It is also used for its anti-inflammatory properties and to support healthy liver function.
Common Use: Chlorella can be taken in capsule form, and it can also be added to homemade juices and smoothies, as well as salad dressings and cooked meals. It is easy to integrate into recipes and incorporate into daily life.
Storage: Store sealed in a cool, dark, and dry place. Do not freeze.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
