WHAT IS CHLORELLA (BROKEN-CELL) ALGAE?
For almost all of my adult life I have heard nutritional experts argue which is better, Spirulina, Blue-Green Algae or Chlorella. I have heard this nutritional battle being waged with heated fights for decades. Often these fights are fueled by the fact that these nutritionists or doctors either sell or represent one of these wonderful super foods. I on the other hand do not.
My focus is pure. It is not which one is higher in a particular nutrient than the other, but what is best for your health, healing and longevity. What is best for you is simply ALL THREE! Therefore, for years I have found the best of each, and blended them into what I call my Algae Complex for my SuperFood Plus.
Therefore, the final ingredient in my trio of sea and lake algae is chlorella supplement. Being richer in specific nutrients that are lower in the other two algae makes this third alga the final perfect nutritional compliment. Chlorella having a harder cell membrane than the other two algae must have its cell structure cracked or broken in order to assimilate its powerful nutrition, hence the title “Broken Cell”.
WHAT’S IN CHLORELLA?
Chlorella algae has a rich array of various nutrients including vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, essential fatty acids, amino acids and hundreds of micronutrients, trace elements and nutritional compounds; similar to spirulina and blue-green algae.
Like other cyanophyta, chlorella supplement is extremely high in protein. Though less than spirulina, chlorella still contains almost 38 times more protein than soybeans and close to 55 times the protein found in rice including all essential amino acids, which have been balanced by nature.
CHLORELLA HEALTH BENEFITS
Chlorella benefits are very similar to spirulina and blue-green algae. Chlorella also has an affinity to bind and remove heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic and other toxins such as pesticides and herbicides from the body. Chlorella can also support the production of beneficial bacterial flora at 4 times the normal rate. It also contains a substance called Chlorella Growth Factor and is the highest plant source of nucleic acids, including RNA & DNA.
