Chlorella

Chlorella is a type phytoplankton which has existed on earth for over 2 million years but was only first discovered in 1890 by Dutch microbiologist. Its name comes from the Greek ‘chloros’ meaning greenish-yellow because of ability to turn bodies of water into a bright green colour. This is due to its high chlorophyll content.

How is it made?
Chlorella is made from a green, unicellular species of freshwater algae. Our Chlorella algae is grown organically on the Central Asian Plateau in a natural wilderness. The isolated dessert environment provides natural soda lakes with plenty of sunlight for photosynthesis and chlorophyll production.

The cell membrane is carefully broken without enzymes via a unique milling process to preserve the high quality of the nutrients and aid absorption. The product is tested for heavy metals, microcystins and benzopyrene.
