Chlorella (Greek: “Chloros” = Green; Latin: “ella” = small thing) is a green algae with an unusually high content of chlorophyll (the highest of any known plant), which gives Chlorella its characteristic deep emerald-green color.
Chlorella is a superfood and is renowned for its health benefits. It is packed with nutrients and beneficial vitamins. It contains all of the B vitamins, vitamins C and E, amino acids, beta-carotene, iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium, rare trace minerals as well as essential fatty acids. Chlorella is about the size of a red blood cell (2-10 microns) and has a polysaccharide membrane that can absorb large amounts of dioxin, lead, mercury and other toxins. This is possible because Chlorella contains:
- Sporopollein – a substance that is extremely effective at binding neurotoxins and more effective at binding toxic metals than any other known natural substance
- Chlorella Growth Factor – this has been shown to remove some toxic metals in animal studies
- Porphyrins – these have a strong metal-binding effect
- Chlorophyll – this activates the receptors on the nucleus of the cell which are ultimately responsible for detoxification
