Chlorella Manna History and Facts
Chlorella is a single-celled, fresh-water green algae whose eukaryotic cell ancestors first emerged on the planet around two billion years ago. Although it lacks phycocyanin (the compound that produces the characteristic blue pigment in blue-green algae), chlorella is one of the richest sources of chlorophyll known, which is responsible for its deep green color. Unlike cyanobacteria (blue-green algae like spirulina and KLA), which lack a nucleus and have thick, gelatinous, easily digestible cell walls, chlorella has a tough cellulose cell wall (20%) and a well-defined nucleus rich in nutrients (80%). Since humans do not produce the enzymes required to break down cellulose, the cell walls of Chlorella Manna™ must be “cracked” to make the nutrients inside the cells bioavailable. HealthForce Chlorella Manna™ is grown and processed in South Korea, by a unique method that ensures over 90% cell wall breakage without any mechanical grinding. This method effectively preserves fragile nutrients, while rendering chlorella extremely easy to digest.
Chlorella destined for human consumption is typically cultivated outdoors in fresh-water ponds, and is therefore subject to air pollution in the environment. HealthForce chlorella is grown indoors in a controlled environment that assures absolute purity, with zero heavy metal contamination. This fact, along with HealthForce TruGanic™ testing, ensures that Chlorella Manna™ is a pollution-free product.
Detoxification Benefits of Chlorella
Like the other algae, chlorella is one of the richest sources of nutrients on the planet, but chlorella truly shines in its ability to promote detoxification. The high chlorophyll content of chlorella stimulates oxygenation of our blood and consequent energy production in all our cells, allowing cells to release toxins more effectively.* In addition, chlorella’s fibrous cell wall binds with heavy metals, radioactive isotopes, pesticides such as PCBs and DDT, and other toxins to effectively carry them out of the body. Chlorella is especially good at removing heavy metals from the body, having over 20 known mechanisms by which it binds to these metals.*
Chlorella Growth Factor
Perhaps the most important nutritional aspect of chlorella stems from the presence of a phytonutrient known as Chlorella Growth Factor (“CGF”). CGF is found in the nucleus of chlorella and contains amino acids, polysaccharides, beta-glucans, vitamins, and an abundance of nucleic acids (RNA and DNA). This water-soluble compound is only found in chlorella and is responsible for the remarkable ability of this plant to quadruple itself every 20 to 24 hours under favorable conditions. Experiments with microorganisms and young animals and children have shown that CGF consumption promotes faster than normal growth without adverse side effects. In adults, CGF appears to enhance the RNA/DNA functions responsible for production of proteins, enzymes, and energy at the cellular level, thereby stimulating a number of beneficial activities in the body:*
Repair and regeneration of all damaged and/or diseased cells, including nerve tissue.
Stimulates cellular detoxification.
Builds and modulates the immune system.
Increases growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria by 400%.
Combats damaging effects of free radicals and exposure to radioactive isotopes.
Dramatically boosts oxygen utilization efficiency in cells, and thus improves exercise performance and stamina.
Activates cellular function and increases the metabolism.
Helps to strengthen and improve the hair, skin, and nails.
How to Consume
Powder: Start with one teaspoon per day and increase gradually over two weeks to suggested use of one (or more) tablespoons per day, either all at once or divided. Chlorella is a food and can be taken in any quantity desired. Add to smoothies, salad dressings, juice/water, seed/nut milks, or any other food.
Tablets: Start with 8 tablets per day and increase gradually over two weeks to suggested use of 25 tablets (or more) per day, either all at once or divided. Consume with any liquid such as water or juice to wash down tablets. Tablets may be chewed as well – try adding to olives, mulberries, or any dried fruit for a crunchy treat.
