GET THE SPECS
What? Chlorella is a single-celled, two-billion-year-old great, green superfood.
Why? This fresh-water algae is crammed with nutrients and chlorophyll – that’s the plant antioxidant responsible for chlorella’s name and its green colour.
So what? It’s a nutrient-boost and a detox waiting to happen. Precisely what your body needs to help clear heavy metals and other toxins.
FACT: Chlorella contains three times more of the antioxidant chlorophyll per weight than any other known plant.
WHAT'S IN IT?
- Chlorella Growth Factor
It’s a potent antioxidant found in many green plants.
What does it do?
- It fights free radical damage.
- It's structurally similar to oxygen-carrying haemoglobin in red blood cells, which is why it helps increase red cell counts.
- It can also chelate and clear heavy metals, detoxify the liver and help counter the effects of radiation.
2. CHLORELLA GROWTH FACTOR (CGF)
A unique phytochemical with multi-systemic effects.
What does it do?
- Supports healthy immune function by stimulating the production of interferon, and protecting infection-fighting T-cells and B-cells.
- Its probiotic function stimulates the growth of good bacteria and supports the digestive system.
- It promotes tissue regeneration, growth and repair without causing uncontrolled cell proliferation in the form of malignancies. Or it wouldn’t be called a “growth factor”.
3. LOTS OF NUTRIENTS
- Vitamins, including the stress-busting Bs and vitamins A, C, E and K.
- Minerals, particularly iron, but also calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, iodine, zinc, copper, sodium and various trace elements.
- Essential fatty acids, to contribute to cholesterol balancing.
- Protein, carbohydrates, amino acids and nucleic acids.
FACT: Chlorella contains more protein per weight than meat or fish and more DNA and RNA nucleic acids than any other natural source.
HOW DOES CHLORELLA HELP YOU?
It helps your body clear out all kinds of junk.
- Heavy metals. The cellulose in chlorella’s tough cell wall binds chemically with noxious heavy metals like mercury, lead, arsenic and cadmium. Then it shows them the door.
- Pesticides. It helps the body flush out hydrocarbon pesticide traces, like DDT, kepone and PCBs.
- Radiation. It helps reduce damage due to radiation exposure. Japanese scientists have been investigating its effects since the nuclear disasters of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
- Fewer free radicals. The antioxidant chlorophyll cuts the tissue damage and ageing caused by free radicals.
- More regeneration. The CGF, in chlorella helps promote cell growth and tissue repair.
- More nucleic acids. When you hit your 20s, nucleic acid volumes start to decrease. CGF also boosts nucleic acid levels and so, may have an anti-ageing function.
3. THE EXTRAS
Still not enough for you? Here’s what else chlorella can do...
- More macrophages, the immune cells that swallow and destroy invading organisms and contaminants.
- An alkaline pH, as chlorella helps counter acidity and restore the body’s optimal, pH balance.
- More energy, due to improved nutritional status.
- Fresher breath, thanks to the chlorophyll.
- Better digestion, due to the healthier balance of good bacteria in the gut.
FACT: Studies have shown that chlorella’s immune-boosting function can actually stimulate the body’s natural ability to overcome the effects of radiation and control cell growth.
WHAT MAKES CHLORELLA THE REAL THING?
- What we put in it. Only the purest possible cracked-cell Chlorella pyrenoidosa algae.
- What we don’t put in it. No binders, fillers, colourants, flavourants, preservatives, tableting aids or additives of any kind.
- How it’s grown. In fresh, shallow water that’s totally free of toxins and pollutants.
- How it’s made. Our algae's cell walls are "cracked" through a low-temperature drying procedure. Why? For easier digestion and absorption of all the good stuff inside.
- How it’s stored. It’s packed in plastic to avoid all contact with metals and moisture
HOW DO YOU TAKE IT?
For maintenance, take 5 tablets twice daily, at meal times, with a glass of water. This can be increased to 10 to 20 tablets daily, or consult your health practitioner.
Each tablet contains 200mg of chlorella - one serving equals 1000mg (or 1g) from 5 tablets
100% pure chlorella algae. Free of binders, fillers, additive and tableting aids.

Not good for me
22 Nov, 2016, By Glenys
The tablets made me very ill. At first I did not realize it was the Chlorella but after a 2nd bout of nausea, vomiting and stomach discomfort I realized the tablets were the cause.
it really works!

i am really happy with this product. gives you loads of energy and keeps you going throughout the day.
well worth the money.

A very effective detoxifier to get rid of heavy metals. I use it together with my home made cilantro/garlic/olive oil pesto to get rid of heavy metals and toxins. When I get a Herxheimer reaction I take Activated Charcoal to assist the clean up process. I would recommend this product highly.
High protein in a pill
26 Mar, 2016, By Peter
Chlorella is an excellent source of high-quality protein, especially for vegetarians. I suck and then chew a teaspoon full of tablets before every meal and one quickly becomes used to the unusual taste. But Chlorella tends to stick to the teeth so sucking the tablets first, until they are soft, helps prevent this.
Great travel buddy

Keep these in my handbag during holidays and the festive season - a great all in one supplement to help with over-indulgence immunity.

There are very few supplements that I feel are worth taking, but this stuff is really excellent. I also experienced reduced cravings, and most amazingly I haven suffered from Candida after being on strong antibiotics (and no candida meds) twice in the last month - which is pretty much miraculous for me. Highly reccomended!
Great energy booster!

Since using this product I have more energy these days, I used to be very fatigue everyday due to GERD and this product has given me an energy boost every morning and throughout the day even, I have been using it for two months so far. I don feel sleepy at my desk anymore and it soothes my tummy. I love it! :) Thank You!
I started using this product a few days now, having hypothyroidism this gave me a energy boots and I also think I sleep better.
I started using this product a few days now, having hypothyroidism this gave me a energy boots and I also think I sleep better. I feel really good, and my body seems to function very well. Somehow it also helps with cravings, Im not craving as much food as I usually do and Im only hungry when I should be. Great product!
