Chlorella is a single celled fresh water superfood green algae. The unique ability of Chlorella is that it is able to reproduce itself four times every 24 hours making it one of the fastest growing plant on earth. It also contains more chlorophyll than any other known plant and other organisms. Chlorella is high in vitamins, minerals and is made up of 65% protein of alkaline nature and has 19 amino acids. These amino acids together with the naturally occurring enzymes allow for easy absorption and utilization of protein.
Chlorella growth factor or CGF, the compound responsible for chlorella’s ability to quadruple every day, helps speed cell regeneration, slow signs of aging, stimulate tissue repair and enhance muscle recovery. CGF is capable of directly enhancing the immune system and serves as a preventative measure to help avoid getting sick.
Chlorella is also well known as a daily body detoxifier. It has been found to bind to heavy metals and remove it from our body. In addition to this, Chlorella helps reduce stress on the system from environmental pollutant and reduce cellular damage caused by free radicals
As testament to this superfood, when consuming nothing other than chlorella, human life can be sustained for an extended period. This was discovered by NASA when the space agency was looking at ways to sustain astronauts for space travel.
