What is ChlorellaChlorella is a single-celled green alga native to Taiwan and Japan and is considered one of the superfoods on this planet. Chlorella is an all-vegetable source that contains a range of nutrients including proteins, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Some of the vitamins and minerals it includes are vitamins A, Beta-Carotene, B, C, E and K, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and trace amounts of manganese, iodine and zinc.
Chlorella is also known for its high chlorophyll levels. Chlorophyll is known as a powerful cleansing agent to detoxify the bowels, liver, kidney and blood systems and promotes healthy lymphatic and circulatory systems.
Nature’s Glory Yaeyama Chlorella is distinguished by the “Y” imprint on its tablets and is one of the early pioneers with over 50 years of technology and research in chlorella. The chlorella is harvested outdoors from the second largest coral reef island in Ishigaki, off Okinawa, Japan, which is known for its clean and unpolluted waters, under strict quality inspection and based on ISO9001-HACCP standards.
Yaeyama Chlorella which is known for its high nutrient levels, with up to 24% of Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), and 1.4 times higher chlorophyll levels than indoor-cultivated algae. It is easily digestible with a unique spray dry technology to break the cells in 6 seconds and achieves the highest attainable of 85% digestibility whilst still retaining all nutrients. It also contains no impurities such as being mixed in with other algae and binders and has an exceptionally fragrant taste.
Benefits of Yaeyama Chlorella
Chlorophyll present in chlorella helps to detoxify the body’s internal organs like the blood and liver, stimulates tissue generation, helps with wound healing and alkalizes the body. Chlorella’s unique cell wall can bind with harmful toxins like pesticides and dioxins, thus helps to detoxify the body.
Protect against viruses and infectionsChlorella also contains a high level of Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), which consists of nucleotides, peptides, glycoproteins, nucleic acid-polysaccharides and sulphur. CGF helps provide genetic material for DNA and RNA repair, support cellular stability and functions, improve nutrient intake, regulate enzyme production, and protect cells against toxins.
CGF is said to prevent the replication of viruses, thus increasing the body’s resistance against infection of diseases and also control the proliferation of cancer cells.
CGF is reported to stimulate T cells against viruses and cancer, B cells against bacteria, and macrophages against cancer, foreign proteins and chemicals. CGF also stimulates the secretion of tumour necrosis factor (TNF), fibroblast activity, and interferon production, which protects our body from infections of influenza and viruses and reduces tumour activities.
It is reported that CGF helps lower blood pressure, improve liver function, increase blood and platelet counts (good for those who suffer from Dengue fever, blood-related cancers or those who are anaemic), regulate blood sugar, renew cells, quicken healing of stomach ulcers and skin disorders, alleviate headaches, resist cold, and restore appetites.
Improves digestive health
Chlorella is noted in helping to alleviate constipation – the root of toxin accumulation and sickness, cleansing organs, cells, bones and blood, and thus may help to prevent sickness, tumour formation and retard ageing. Its cell wall is also an excellent source of fibre to regulate bowel movements for a clean and healthy colon.
