Chlorella is a single-celled freshwater microalgae that has flourished for nearly two billion years. Photosynthesizing its energy from the sun, chlorella is a powerhouse of nutrients. Chlorella is rich in amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals—including B-vitamins, vitamins A and D, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. This unique combination of nutrients within chlorella is a primary reason why scientists around the world are actively researching* medicinal uses for this aquatic-based superfood.

Chlorella is a single-celled freshwater microalgae that has flourished for nearly two billion years. Photosynthesizing its energy from the sun, it is a powerhouse of nutrients. It is a natural source of vegetarian protein—about 60 percent—a very high level for a plant. Due to this high protein concentration and chlorella’s naturally rapid growth rate, after World War II, it was investigated as a possible food source.

Chlorella is rich in amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals—including B-vitamins, vitamins A and D, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. This unique combination of nutrients within chlorella is a primary reason why scientists around the world are actively researching* medicinal uses for this aquatic-based superfood.

Chlorella’s potential benefits for health and vitality include:

– detoxification from heavy metals, including mercury;
– supporting optimal immune system function;
antioxidant properties;
– anti-inflammatory properties;
– healthy cholesterol metabolism; and
– support for digestive health.

It is widely accepted that the structure of the cell wall in chlorella allows it to bind with heavy metals, essentially keeping the phytonutrient healthy, and it’s the primary reason it has survived for millennia, even in polluted aquatic environments. This rare ability to bind to toxins has given rise to preclinical studies on the role chlorella may play in detoxification for optimal health in humans, as our internal environment is primarily aquatic.

There are many types of chlorella on the market, in pill and powder form. The cellular properties of chlorella must be broken down for human digestion, known as “broken cell-wall chlorella.” Therefore, this superfood must be developed under careful quality control conditions. Additionally, Daily Values for this nutrient have not been established. It is imperative to consult with your health practitioner before selecting a chlorella supplement.

Never ever worry about the vitamins and minerals in your food--- eat green veggies , fruits , egg a day , etc., besides what you normally eat. All of this contains in excess of what you normally require

Oh yes, 16! And I actually decreased the dose a bit. This is exactly what is in my supplement regimen.

Tablets daily at 16 is like crawling into a bunny cage with a little liquid in the lettuce to choke it down. Invest in the powder form...mix in 20 ounces of pure lemon water with cayenne etc. Total Nutrition.

The only complaint I have about taking this is the amount of tablets recommended daily. I am currently at 16 per day as a maintenance dose and it's even higher if you are needing to supplement proteins. Otherwise it's benefits outweigh the inconvenience.
