A single-celled, blue-green algae, Chlorella vulgaris is sourced from an island in the South China Sea and is cultivated in filtered natural water under strict controls. Rich in organic matters, Chlorella is a popular basis for detoxification programmes.
Chlorella embodies a plethora of key vitamins and minerals including calcium, iron, phosphorous and potassium.
The Chlorella cell is protected by a tough wall. This cell wall is broken using high impact jet spraying which preserves the nutritional integrity of the cell contents so that these are accessible and undamaged when consumed. The algae is then dried and ground into powder form.
We recommend that you take one heaped teaspoon (3 grams), with water, once or twice a day. It should ideally be taken 30 minutes before meals. We also recommend that you take a reduced dose during the first week to minimise detoxification symptoms.
Store your Chlorella Powder in a cool, dry place, do not freeze, and keep away from direct sunlight.
