What Is Microalgae?
Microalgae are the origin of the food chain, their presence on earth existed at the very early stages of earth. After billions of years of environmental changes, they did not become extinct and are still visible in our surroundings today.
Even though microalgae are tiny, they are still nature’s most nutritious food source. Microalgae contain similar amino acids, vitamins and minerals as the human body. Not only can microalgae provide us with optimal nutrition, they can also help us maintain a healthy body, and therefore are known as the “Green Super Food” for the 21st century. Two microalgae with the highest nutritional value for humans are spirulina and chlorella.
This Premium Spirulina + Chlorella is grown in pure mountain spring water from Beidawu Mountain in southern Taiwan. This unpolluted area of beautiful old growth forest receives constant sunlight and is the most ideal place for spirulina and chlorella cultivation. This unique setting allows the spirulina and chlorella to absorb the nutrients and minerals from the spring water and transform them naturally into organic minerals. This spirulina and chlorella is cultivated carefully, and at each stage of production, is tested for purity. The result is the cleanest spirulina and chlorella, free of heavy metals and full of rich nutrients.
This algae is noted for its ability to synthesize high-quality concentrated food more efficiently than other algae, and contains rich phycocyanin and chlorophyll. It has a blueish green color and therefore is sometimes known as blue-green algae. Spirulina is a wonderful food because it contains 18 types of amino acids and vitamins that our body needs. Spirulina originated from the ocean, therefore it also contains all sorts of mineral elements.
The Nutritional Values of Spirulina:
- Rich in High Quality Protein
- The Best Supplement Source of Vitamin B12
- Phytochromes may Help with Metabolism
- Essential Fatty Acids Enhances the Metabolic Rate of Our Bodies
- Dietary Fibers are Guardians of Intestinal Health
- Rich Minerals are Firewalls for The Human Body
Rich in High Quality Protein
Spirulina is made up of 60~70% pure vegetable protein, which is higher than meat and fish by 15-20%, soy by 35%, milk powder by 35%, peanuts by 25%, and wheat by 8-14%. This ranks spirulina as the no.1 protein sourced food out of the above mentioned foods. And it is considered to be the most nutrient dense food on the planet.
The Best Supplement Source of Vitamin B12
Spirulina contains rich amounts of vitamins, and amongst all the beneficial vitamins, is significantly high in beta-carotene and vitamin B complex. Beta-carotene transforms into vitamin A when it enters our body, which has the ability to effectively support healthy vision as well as maintain healthy skin and mucosal. The rich amount of vitamin B complex found in spirulina crowns it the title “King of Vitamin B Complex”. Vitamin B12 is normally only available in meat (especially in animal livers), but it is also now available in vegetable sourced spirulina. Just 1.2 grams of spirulina per day, will satisfy the body’s demand of vitamin B12, making it an essential supplement for vegetarians.
Phytochromes May Help with Metabolism
Natural phytochomes not only add colors in our food, they also play the role of stimulating our metabolisms. Spirulina contains a variety of phytochromes, which are effective in improving physique and maintaining good health.
Essential Fatty Acids Enhance the Metabolic Rate of Our Bodies
Our bodies are not capable of producing essential fatty acids, these can only be absorbed through the foods we intake. Spirulina contains the highest levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids and gamma linoleic acid. Not only does it contain the highest levels of these acids, it’s value is also 3 times that of the commonly used Evening Primrose Oil, and has the functions of protecting our skin and reducing menstrual discomfort.
Spirulina contains dietary fibers of up to 8~12% which can increase satiety, help with defecation and maintain a healthy digestive tract.
Rich Minerals are Firewalls for People
Spirulina contains rich mineral trace elements such as iron, magnesium, manganese, chromium, zinc, selenium and so on. Take iron for example, 100g of spirulina contains 50~100mg of iron. Therefore, 5g of spirulina will fulfill the 10mg daily amount required by the human body. Furthermore, the trace elements found in spirulina are also ranked amongst the highest when compared with other microalgae, and can enhance the immune system of our bodies while helping to maintain the functions of our physiology and metabolism.
Chlorella A+ is a premium dietary supplement that contains more than 20 vitamins and minerals including B complex, beta-carotene, vitamins C and E, iron and calcium. It is the highest source of chlorophyll, which is a liver detoxifier, a bowel cleanser, and a catalyst for the absorption of other elements including iron. It is the highest source of the nucleic acids DNA and RNA, reduced levels of which are believed to be implicated in physical deterioration and aging. It is the amazing green superfood that can trigger your natural defenses.
Chlorella is a fresh water, single-celled algae with a microscopic diameter of only 3-8 microns. It has survived over 2.5 billion years due to its unique outer cell wall, and its ability to rejuvenate itself rapidly into 4 new cells every 17 to 20 hours.
Chlorella is a nutrient-dense superfood that contains 60% protein, 18 amino acids (including all the essential amino acids), and various vitamins and minerals. Its deep green color comes from the fact that chlorella contains the highest amount of chlorophyll of any known plant.
Our Chlorella A+ uses an advanced, patented process to break the cell walls of the chlorella to allow for much greater absorption. Utilizing low temperature and higher pressure, a flash expansion process successfully explodes holes in the chlorella cell wall, increasing the absorption rate to around 94.7%.
One of chlorella’s most unique properties is a phytonutrient called Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), which promotes growth and is known to be a powerful natural immune enhancer. CGF is made mostly of nucleic acid derivatives such as RNA and DNA, along with amino acids, vitamins and minerals whose exact properties have not yet been identified. Up to 10% of chlorella can be RNA, while DNA levels can be as high as 3%. CGF does not directly replace your cellular DNA and RNA, but its amino acid combinations after digestion and assimilation immediately provide the “Building blocks” for the repair of your own genetic material.
Natural mineral water sources from environmentally protected mountains are used to carefully cultivate our chlorella under natural sunlight. Rigid quality control checks ensure freshness and purity in every chlorella tablet.
A+ Grade Chlorella:
- Natural source of complete nutritional profile
- Patented broken cell wall process
- Clean water source from environmentally protected mountain mineral water
- No preservatives
- No fillers
- No contamination
- 100% natural
The key to many “unsolvable” health problems may be in the probiotics — the more than 400 types of friendly bacteria — that live in you. The job of these microscopic bugs is to keep your body balanced by aiding digestion in your stomach, intestines and bowel, and to fortify your immune system. But what many screening tests overlook is that your friendly bacteria — probiotics — can get crowded out by toxins, chemicals and other harmful environmental factors that beat down your good health.
That’s where Chlorella A+ comes in and does what other supplements can’t. Chlorella A+ has the unique ability to bind with those toxins and sweep them out of your body — and it does it better than any other nutritional supplement or food known to man. Chlorella is made up of four major components — chlorophyll, CGF, protein and fiber — which help to speed up detoxification and keep your probiotic levels balanced.
- Good Digestion and Regularity
- Healthy Cholesterol and Blood pressure levels
- Strengthens the Immune System
- Support for Stiff Joints
- Abundant Energy
- Balance Your pH
- Beauty Skin
Numerous research projects in the U.S. and Europe indicate that chlorella can also aid in breaking down persistent hydrocarbon and metallic toxins such as mercury, cadmium, lead, and DDT. The reason why chlorella has this function is chlorella is comprised of a fibrous, indigestible outer shell (20%) and its inner nutrients (80%). This fibrous material has been proven to actually bond with the heavy metals and pesticides, which can accumulate in our bodies. Another reason is chlorella has the highest content of chlorophyll, which is a similar component as hemoglobin; therefore, chlorella can help us build up a strong natural defense system with a clean bloodstream. Chlorella’s cleansing action on the bowel and other elimination channels, as well as its protection of the liver, helps keep the blood clean. Clean blood insures that metabolic wastes are efficiently carried away from the tissues.
Good Digestion and Regularity
As you probably know, enzymes perform a lot of important functions in our anatomy. Chlorella also has a lot of powerful digestive enzymes we need, such as chlorophyllase and pepsin, which can help our elimination to become regular and strengthen our digestive system so everything moves smoothly. In addition, the fibrous materials in chlorella will improve digestion and promote the growth of beneficial aerobic bacteria in the gut.
Healthy Cholesterol and Blood Pressure levels
More and more evidence shows that chlorella tends to lower blood pressure and serum cholesterol levels because of it characteristics – low calories, low sugar, low fatty acid, high fiber and high protein. Therefore, some research programs have indicated that regular use of chlorella can help to guard against heart disease. One of the best supplements you can take for maintaining healthy cholesterol and blood pressure levels is Chlorella A+.
Strengthens the Immune System
Have you suffered from catching a cold frequently? Besides eliminating toxins, pesticides and heavy metals, chlorella’s cell wall can also induce interferon production, which is important to immune function. As a result, chlorella can boost our immune system and stimulate our natural defense against cancer. Many researchers have shown that the chlorella growth factor (CGF) in the nucleus of chlorella is responsible for the increase of interferon. The scientists fed chlorella to laboratory mouse, which were infected with cancer cells, and the results were positive.
Support for Stiff Joints
Most doctors will tell you that when you get older, you are bound to feel stiff and move around more slowly, but that’s simply not true! In fact, if you suffer from any type of achy joints, muscle or tendon discomfort, or recurring headaches, you’ll be surprised to learn that there may be another cause of your pain — hidden chemical irritants. Scientists have discovered that nerves can be irritated by dozens of invisible toxins which many people are exposed to everyday. As chlorella can sweep the toxins out of our body, it can provide support for stiff joints.
In one study, researchers gave Chlorella A+ daily for two months to a group of people who were experiencing stiff joints, sore muscles, and more. The results astonished even the researchers. Nearly 70 percent of those who took Chlorella A+ faithfully throughout the study period saw measurable improvement in how they felt. And 45 percent found comfort at last.
If you wake up tired and sluggish every morning and need a nap in the afternoon, or depend on colas or coffee to keep you going, or stay home at night because you’re too tired to stay awake through a movie or enjoy a night on the town with your friends, then you may not just be suffering from tiredness and fatigue. Your cells may actually be oxygen-starved. Every cell in your body needs a constant flow of oxygen to generate energy — otherwise you just feel plain worn out all the time.
One of the best ways to get oxygen into your cells is to eat rich, green foods. But even if you eat a plateful of broccoli and spinach every day, it’s probably not enough. However, studies show that the green whole food Chlorella A+ can significantly increase the oxygen flow in your cells because it has the highest known percentage of chlorophyll of any plant in the world. This chlorophyll goes to work inside your cells, cleansing out the fatigue-causing toxins that rob you of precious energy-giving oxygen, and delivering more oxygen to your system than any other fruit, vegetable, vitamin or mineral. So get ready for more energy and stamina in your life!
Balance Your pH
Do you usually eat out at restaurants? Then you may be suffering from a nutritional imbalance. It is very important that we maintain a balanced body pH, ideally about 7.2 –7.4. However, due to a poor diet of junk food, fast food, overcooked and processed foods, and especially soft drinks which have a pH of 2.7, many people today are not in the neutral range. The above foods are several thousand times more acidic than our bodies. And most diseases begin and thrive in an acidic environment. Therefore, it’s beneficial to eat some alkaline foods, such as chlorella, to balance our body’s pH.
Everyone knows that the best way to lose weight is by eating less and exercising more. But even if you’re dieting and exercising, you may still need help. That’s because our fat cells get clogged up with toxins from processed foods and refined sugars. And when toxins stay in the fat cells, we get sluggish digestion, constipation…and the pounds start to add up fast. Chlorella A+ can help clean out the toxins so your metabolism and intestinal tract receive the support they need to run more efficiently and smoothly. Chlorella is also the only food with enough high-powered chlorophyll content to stimulate the production of abundant friendly bacteria into your stomach — the kind you need for digesting fats properly.
The remarkable Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) promotes youthfulness and helps your body renew itself and fight off the harmful effects of premature aging. You won’t find CGF in any vitamin, mineral or herb. It is only found in chlorella and it contains a unique mixture of nature’s most potent agents that nourish and replenish your body. CGF is naturally “built in” to the heart of each Chlorella A+ cell in a way that optimizes your ability to absorb and benefit from it the most. How does it do this? CGF actually gives your body “the signal” it needs to build NEW cells. When you take Chlorella A+ with CGF, you get a constant supply of strong new cells to rejuvenate your body and make you feel young again.
In sum, spirulina and chlorella contain vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, essential fatty acids, chlorophyll, a vast array of phytonutrients, and are high in digestible protein. Many nutritionists and health advocates who have researched spirulina and chlorella think they are two of nature’s “perfect foods” to restore your energy and find your way back to health!
