There are over 70,000 species of algae in the world. Some species are magnificent whole foods such as Chlorella Pyrenoidosa. It is a 4 billion year old strain of green algae, making it one of the oldest foods on the planet. Chlorella is thought to be the most thoroughly researched food in history and is recognized as having the highest chlorophyll content of all known plants. It is a fresh water, single-cell green algae that is renowned for its health giving properties such as vitamins, minerals, fiber, nucleic acids, amino acids, enzymes, CGF (Chlorella Growth Factor) and other beneficial nutrients.
There are thousands of research papers on the superfood "Chlorella" from medical institutions, scientific journals and universities. One aspect of Chlorella that is of particular interest to scientists is the CGF or Chlorella Growth Factor. Chlorella has a number of properties which are beneficial to organs and tissues that have been injured by a various causes. It has been demonstrated to promote liver health and has been called the "great normalizer" because of its ability to balance bodily functions. Although some positive effects of taking Chlorella may be felt immediately, such as correcting constipation and bad breath, Chlorella's full nutritive and detoxifying abilities will take 3-6 months to be fully appreciated.
Chlorella has an abundance of RNA & DNA that are associated with anti-aging. Chlorella promotes cell reproduction, reduces cholesterol, and increases hemoglobin levels. Since Chlorella has 5 to10 times the chlorophyll content of any other algae, it has been used successfully in the treatment of cardiac hypertension and cleansing the bowel, kidneys, liver, and bloodstream. Chlorophyll is effective against anemia and stimulates the production of red blood cells in the body. It also helps carry oxygen around the body and to the brain, which is why Chlorella is often called "Brain Food".
Other research programs have indicated that regular use of Chlorella helps guard against heart disease, reduce high blood pressure and lower serum cholesterol levels. Chlorella has a tough indigestible cell wall, which detoxifies the body by binding with heavy metals as it passes through. Sporopollenin, which is only present in Chlorella Pyrenoidosa, acts in the same detoxifying way. Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) causes the benign lactobacillus, which is crucial to digestion, to multiply at four times the normal rate and also accelerates the regrowth of damaged tissue.
Chlorella has been shown to promote the production of interferon, one of our body's greatest natural defenses against cancer.
Spirulina contains vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (nicotinamide), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folic acid), vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin E. has 58 times the iron of raw spinach and 28 times that of raw beef liver. A superior source of plant protein spirulina contains an unusually high amount, between 55% and 77% by dry weight and is a complete protein, containing all essential amino acids. Ojio Spirulina Powder is sourced from the world leader in micro algal technology for over 3 decades and is Certified Organic.
