Chlorella is one of nature’s richest sources of nutrition. Beloved by dieticians and athletes, this power-packed all-natural supplement has been termed a superfood owing to its generous spread of amino acids, high protein content and profusion of vitamins and minerals.
Although there are many chlorella products on the market, they are not all equal. Unlike some others, Foodtopia’s broad-spectrum Clean Chlorella is grown in a strictly controlled environment so as to avoid toxin uptake. The proprietary tank cultivation method uses no pesticides or herbicides to produce chlorella with the highest possible purity.
What is Chlorella?
What is chlorella? A single-celled freshwater algae native to Taiwan and Japan, is the short answer. Chlorella has been around for billions of years, but only relatively recently has its massive nutritional potential been unlocked.
Chlorella is among the best vegetarian protein sources in the world. It is one of the plant world’s few examples of ‘complete proteins’ as it contains all nine essential amino acids, which are vital for repairing body tissue and breaking down food. Moreover, it contains all B vitamins, vitamins A, C, E and K, plus major minerals such as zinc and iron.
In addition, chlorella is the most abundant source of chlorophyll in the world. Chlorophyll – sometimes called ‘plant blood’ – is a green pigment that is instrumental in photosynthesis and helps maintain the body’s alkaline balance. Like chlorella, chlorophyll has earned the status of superfood.
Chlorella Benefits are Wide-Ranging
While studies into chlorella and chlorella benefits are ongoing, there’s a reason this ancient green algae has become a staple food source for health-conscious individuals throughout the world. Its natural ability to absorb toxins means it is a popular detoxifier, although it has also been associated with weight loss, proper regulation of hormones, enhanced energy levels and improved immunity.
Why Foodtopia Chlorella?
Because of its capacity to absorb toxins, chlorella grown in the open atmosphere can have the negative effect of absorbing toxins such as heavy metals. To overcome this problem, Foodtopia grow their chlorella under strictly controlled, aseptic conditions using indoor tanks. Although not classified as organic, Clean Chlorella is purer than most organically-grown chlorella owing to this under-roof process. What’s more, indoor-grown chlorella develops a thin cell wall which is naturally broken down during drying and processing, improving digestibility and releasing nutrients more efficiently.
