Be beautiful inside & out
+ Detox therapy from air pollution
+ Antioxidant support for beautiful skin
Are you looking for an all-natural supplement that can strengthen your immune system, boost energy, improve digestion and detoxify heavy metals and toxins from your body? If so, chlorella supplements may be exactly what you need.
Chlorella is a green algae that is rich in phytonutrients including amino acids, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, potassium, phosphorus, biotin, magnesium and B-complex vitamins.
Studies have shown that chlorella supplements can support healthy hormonal function, promote cardiovascular health, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and detoxify heavy metals from the body.
The Health Promotion Board recommends having at least 2 servings of vegetables everyday but this can be difficult especially with our busy lifestyles today.
By consuming high quality Vitalgroup-made chlorella supplements, you can get all the health benefits of chlorella to maintain good health.
Vital Chlorella is produced using advance Vitalgroup technology that breaks down the indigestible chlorella cell walls to improve digestibility while retaining important nutrients in the chlorella cell.
Chlorella has the following benefits:
• Removes heavy metals and toxins from the body.
• Strengthens the body's immune system.
• Improves digestion and manages constipation.
• Neutralizes excessive body acids.
• Great source of easy to digest protein.
• Improves skin condition (e.g. acne, eczema).
• Stimulates body growth and prevents ageing.
• Regulates blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
• Boosts energy and ability to focus and concentrate.
• Prevent common illnesses (e.g. cold and flu).
• Reduces odour and bad breath.
• Reduces excessive fats.
• Reduce hair loss.
What is Chlorella?
Discovered in 1890 by Dutch microbiologist M. W. Beijernick, chlorella is a fresh water algae that reproduces at a rapid rate and a single cell can divide and subdivide into four cells every 16 to 20 hours.
Chlorella is made up of almost 60 percent protein and contains all eight essential amino acids. These amino acids in chlorella are comparable to that of animal-derived protein, except that it has a slightly lower amount of methionine. Chlorella contains impressive amounts of vitamins including vitamin A (in provitamin A or beta-carotene form vitamin C, ), vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, niacin, pantothenic acid, folic acid, biotin, choline, inositol, PABA, vitamin E and vitamin K. It also has more vitamin B12 than liver. One tablespoon provides 333 percent of the RDA for this vitamin for adults.
Chlorella contains 180 mg of beta-carotene in each 100 grams. A powerful antioxidant, beta-carotene helps lower the free radical burden on the body. (Free radicals are reactive forms of oxygen that destroy living cells.)
Beta-Carotene has also been found to protect the body against the effects of UV radiation, and this application has been studied extensively by the Food and Drug Administration in Washington, DC. Populations with higher beta-carotene in-takes were shown, in a John Hopkins University study, to have lower rates of lung cancer while groups with less beta-carotene in their diets were demonstrated to have a higher cancer rate.
Chlorella which is 2% chlorophyll by weight, contains more chlorophyll per gram than any other plant on the planet. Loaded with carotenoids, chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that convert light into energy. According to Dr Bernard Jensen, the chlorophyll in chlorella can help to speed up cleansing of the bowel, blood stream and liver. It has also been found to stimulate growth, metabolism, immune system and the healing of wounds and burns. Chlorella is also best known for its deodorant properties.
Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)
In the early 1950s, Dr. Fujimaki of the People's Scientific Center in Tokyo separated a substance from an extract of chlorella and found it to be rich in nucleic factors; he named it Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF). Although the structure of CGF is not completely understood, preliminary research indicates that it is responsible for the height and weight gains in children as demonstrated in studies during which the youngsters took chlorella supplements six days a week.
CGF has been studied as a strengthener of the immune system as well as a "retardant" of aging. Research by Jensen and others tested Dr. Benjamin Frank's hypothesis that loss of energy and physical deterioration associated with aging were due to the increasing breakdown of nuclei factors (DNA and RNA) needed to keep the body's cells healthy. Frank held that the body's natural production of RNA and DNA slows down, possibly even as early as the age of 20. (DNA and RNA in all living things are made up of the same chemical building blocks.) He put his patients on a diet rich in DNA and RNA. He recommended the use of high-RNA foods such as canned or fresh sardines, salmon or other seafood, legumes, wheat germs and green leafy vegetables. (Canned sardines - at least 590 milligrams per l00 grams - are thought to be among the highest source of RNA. Chlorella reportedly may be 17 times higher in RNA than canned sardines. Since the nucleic components were made available for repair and replacement of cellular nucleic acids, Frank expected to see improvements in his patients' energy levels and general well being. He found these benefits and a more youthful appearance in his patients, but he also noted that some of their long-standing problems such as arthritis, memory loss and depression began to diminish.
In the world, chlorella's ability to counteract the posionous effects of nuclear and industrial pollutants have made it the leading supplement there. One Japanese study showed that taking 8 grams of chlorella daily increased the excretion of cadmium in animal A test at the West Virginia School of Medicine involving feeding chlorella to animals who had previously taken hydro-carbon chlordecones showed that chlorella had eliminated the poison from the animals' bodies. The researchers concluded that chlorella is potentially effective for detoxifying compounds with properties similar to chlodecone, such as dioxin and PCB. Some have suggested that chlorella be investigated as a possible antidote for the Chernobyl accident fall-out damages that are expected to be with us for 100 or more year.
Some studies have indicated that chlorella can have a significant stimulating effect on the immune system. It has been shown to increase macrophage (a key element in the immune system) activity in rats and increases in macrophages have been found to help produce a body chemical that protects the cells from harmful viruses. In the last 20 years, more than 4 million people have regularly supplemented with chlorella. Japanese doctors have reported successes in using chlorella on patients with stomach ulcers, chronic pancreatitis, inflammation of the stomach, chronic gastritis and chronic gall bladder inflammation. Other indications included relieving gastric distress, accelerating the healing of wounds, normalizing digestion and bowel function, as well as helping to regulate blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
A Universal Food
Because chlorella is a high-protein food and gives the greatest yield of any food per unit of space, it has been considered as a potential source of protein for the universe. German scientists during World Wars I and II investigated it as a possible means of alleviating wartime food shortages. After World War II , the Carnegie Institute of Washington, DC continued the studies begun by German scientists and found a way to grow chlorella commercially. The Japanese took over its development since then. It grew in stature as a food supplement in the 1970s when a Japanese firm devised a means of breaking down chlorella's cell walls without removing them from the product itself. The disrupted cell walls, as already indicated, are an important source of nutrients. The Dyno-Mil process, as the Japanese process was called increased the digestibility of chlorella significantly. Other methods, such as blanching and steaming, are also used today to make chlorella's cell walls more digestible. Chlorella is available in tablets, granules and liquid form.
