In the last two blog posts we explained the best way to take golden chlorella and what positive effects the superfood can have on health. But how can it be that the tiny algae has such a large effect on the body? To answer that, let’s take a step back and take a closer look at the microalgae Chlorella – under the microscope, so to speak.
Each Chlorella cell is a self-sufficient organism that contains many vital substances. For example, it contains phytonutrients and cofactors in a balanced ratio, which is beneficial for the general restoration and maintenance of health. With its high content of vitamins, minerals, proteins, amino acids and other vital nutrients, it provides a wide range of nutrients that the human body needs.
Since chlorella contains the important nutrients that the human body needs and can even have a healing effect, it is considered a life-extending food in certain countries like Japan. After the Second World War, the majority of the population consumed the microalgae Chlorella. Millions of Japanese people still consume the microalgae every day. So it’s no wonder that Japan is the country with the highest life expectancy: As of 2019, there are more than 70,000 people who are 100 years old or older.
How does it work? The nutrients in Chlorella are able to interact with the body in a way which promotes our ability to heal, rebalance and revitalize. Nowadays many individuals lack vital nutrients in their modern day died, leading to possible deficiencies, Chlorella is able to supply those nutrients. With its high nutritional content, Chlorella can help bridge the gap in people’s nutritional needs. In addition, the vitamins and minerals are bio-chelated. Meaning that they are naturally incorporated into amino acids, which makes them easier for the human body to absorb and process.
In short: Chlorella is a wholesome food with many positive effects on the body and our health, that can be easily integrated into the daily diet. When compared to other species of Chlorella vulgaris, the Golden Chlorella has the advantage that it is odorless and tasteless – with the same effect.
