Chlorella Powder - Thin Cell Wall

Price: $23.99 Price: $29.99

  • This specialized strain of raw Chlorella has a thin cell wall allowing it to be easily digested.
  • It is aseptically grown in closed stainless steel tanks completely eliminating the possibility of contamination from outside sources including microbes, pollution, toxic substances, and heavy metals.
  • The thin cell wall increases digestibility by 80-90% over that of normal chlorella. This naturally thin cell wall chlorella does not need to undergo a separate process to break the cell wall which can potentially damage the nutritional content.
  • A secondary advantage of the advanced pure tank cultivation is that the chlorella has a naturally improved taste and smell when compared to those grown in open ponds... More info

If you are looking for a supplement to maintain overall health with additional cleansing properties, you'll want to add thin cell wall raw chlorella to your nutritional program.

Chlorella is an emerald green, single-celled freshwater microalgae widely recognized as one of the most potent nutritional whole foods on Earth. Each chlorella cell is a self-sufficient organism with all the plant's life functions taking place inside the cell. The result is an unusually high concentration of important nutrients.

This tiny plant contains the highest known quantity of chlorophyll within a natural source. Chlorophyll is the 'green blood' of all plant life and has a chemical structure very similar to hemoglobin, our own red blood molecules. Chlorophyll may carry oxygen around the blood supply and support the building of red blood cell count. It may support a healthy detoxification response. Scientists and medical professionals have long recognized the importance of chlorophyll in the diet, as a possible bowel supportive agent and natural deodorant. In addition, it has been used historically as a topical wound-healing accelerator.
Many green foods are good sources of chlorophyll, but recent laboratory tests have shown that chlorella may have over 5 times the amount of chlorophyll per serving than wheat grass. Also, it has an outstanding 12 times the amount of chlorophyll than of barley and nearly 10 times the amount of alfalfa.

Advantages of our advanced pure tank cultivation method:

  • High digestibility / thin cell wall
  • Aseptically cultivated
  • Consistently superior quality
  • High CGF (Chlorella Growth Factor)
  • Improved taste, color & smell
  • Free of contaminants & heavy metals

Nutrients found in Chlorella:

  • Known as the richest natural source of chlorophyll
  • May have a deeply cleansing effect
  • More than 20 bioavailable (easy to digest) vitamins & minerals
  • Contains 19 amino acids that are essential for tissue and cell regeneration
  • May contain a greater quantity of healthy fatty acids than in spirulina or wild blue green algae
  • 60% superior protein to most other sources, 3 times the amount of steak or fish
  • Contains most components of the vitamin B complex, especially B12, making chlorella a traditionally recommended supplement for vegetarians and vegans
  • A source of beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant that supports the body’s ability to possibly fight free radicals

Some possible health benefits and traditional uses of Raw Thin Cell Wall Chlorella Powder may include:

  • May support healthy weight loss
  • Historically used as a natural breath freshener
  • May support a healthy immune system response
  • May encourage friendly bacteria growth, possibly supporting healthy digestion
  • May support the body's ability to maintain a healthy PH level
  • Excellent source of broad spectrum nutrition that may support overall vitality

Constituents of Chlorella include:

  • Protein, Essential Fatty Acids, Carbohydrates
  • Minerals: Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Zinc, Iodine
  • Vitamins: Vitamin C, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B-6, Folate, Biotin, PABA, Choline, Inositol, Beta carotene, Vitamin A (IU), Vitamin E, Lutein, Alpha- Carotene, Tocopherols
  • Amino Acids: Isoleucine, Leucine,. Lysine, Methionine, Glycine, Phenylalanine, Tryptophan,   Arginine, Histidine, Alanine, Aspartic Acid, Glutamic Acid, Proline, Serine, Valine, Threonine, Alanine
  • Phytochemicals: Chlorophyll A & B, Chlorella Growth Factor, Sporopollenin, Chlorellin

  1. 100%
    One of the best multivitamins out there
    I have been taking this supplement for many months now and feel that it has really done me a lot of good. The detoxifying actions, protein, omegas, and antioxidants combine to make it a real energy booster. I take a teaspoon with a glass of water every day. And the description is correct in saying that the taste is much improvied in this product due to it being grown in steel tanks.
