Adaptogen, Alterative, Antiviral, Immuno-stimulant,
is an ancient plant that has survived the ages with each
cell being self-sufficient and capable of all life-sustaining
functions. Chlorella is freshwater single-cell, fresh-water
green algae. Chlorella"s name is devised from the fact
that it contains pound for pound, the highest
concentration of chlorophyll of any known plant.
Chlorophyll is the molecule
that absorbs sunlight and uses its energy to synthesize
carbohydrates from CO2 and water. This
process is known as photosynthesis and is the basis for
sustaining the life processes of all plants.
Chlorophyll, the 'green blood' of plant photosynthesis, life
as we know it could not exist. Until recently, most
research involving plants has been geared towards 'better
plants' for 'better meat'. For years it was thought
that the protein we needed could only come from meat.
The hot extract of chlorella
stimulates the production of interferon. The substance
responsible for this is known as chlorellan, which is a
life force stimulant produced by the excitation of
macrophange activity. Several studies have been done on
the direct and indirect influence of Chlorella on the
inhibition and prevention of cancer.
Chlorella has been shown to be
specific treatment for Epstein-Barr and Cytomegalo
viruses. Chlorophyll in concentrations found in
Chlorella have been shown to be helpful in the treatment
of pancreatitis. Chlorophyll in Chlorella has been
shown to tighten the teeth, thus contributing to healthy
gums, aids new tissue growth and prevents gums from
bleeding. Chlorella in a granular form, has been
with water and applied to gums through a water jet
device to treat the gums.
Chlorella has been shown to be an
excellent detoxifier of such heavy metals as cadmium,
lead, mercury and copper.
It has been used in the Orient to
treat cancerous growths and is antiviral in nature.
Chlorella contains all the B Vitamins,
Vitamin C, E, and many minerals. Chlorella"s biologic
coding elements of RNA and DNA have been found to
protect against the effects of ultraviolet radiation.
Chlorella contains a "Controlled
Growth Factor," which taken on a regular basis, brings a
noticeable increase in sustained energy and immune
