Chlorella: The Perfect Food
Chlorella Pyrenoidosa is a green single-cell type of algae that has existed on earth for over 2.5 billion years. It is derived from a Latin word meaning ‘leaf' and ‘small' and was the first life form containing a true nucleus with cell-walls of cellulose. It's the size of a human blood cell and is dark-green because of its high concentration of chlorophyll. Having the richest source of chlorophyll of any food on Earth, it contains 19 amino acids, unsaturated essential fatty acids, nucleic acids (RNA and DNA) and plenty of vitamins and minerals. Chlorella has a higher amount of protein in it than meat or eggs and it is cultivated in freshwater ponds with proper sunlight and a growing environment. It reproduces itself at the rate of about 4 cells every 20 hours, something no other plant on earth can do. Chlorella also contains a powerful ingredient called Chlorella Growth Factor that stimulates tissue repair.
Around the end of the 19th century, Dutch microbiologist Martinus Beijernick identified chlorella under a microscope.
Chlorella has amazing healing properties. The results won't be realized overnight, but after three to six months of daily usage, you'll see a difference throughout your body. Our diet today contains many harmful additives, chemicals and our processed foods are stripped of nutrients. Chlorella provides all the missing nutrients the body needs and helps maintain its balance. Users of chlorella find it improves mental clarity and energy levels, clears up complexion, and gives an overall better sense of well-being. Chlorella is available in powder, caplet and capsule form. You can get it at most health food stores or buy it online. It's suggested that you start out taking 3 grams of chlorella daily. This equals out to be about a teaspoon of powder or nine capsules. It can be taken on an empty stomach or with food.
