Sun Chlorella (200mg) Overview
SUN Chlorella is easily the most popular brand of chlorella supplement sold, almost synonymous with chlorella supplements. There are many brands of chlorella on the market but for many people SUN Chlorella is the best and most-trusted product. The SUN corporation deserves its share of credit for helping to popularize and legitimize this fascinating nutritional plant. Chlorella is a single-cell algae that, when dried and processed for human consumption, is a very highly concentrated source of phytonutrients like chlorophyll as well as B-vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, and fiber. Under the right growing conditions chlorella is very efficient at converted basic substances like water, carbon dioxide and minerals into useful nutrients and calories. Chlorella research was at one point extensively funded and studies focused on its potential as a possible weapon against world-hunger, since its nutritional content is so high and scientists predicted it would very cheap and easy to produce in massive quantities.
The researchers were correct about the nutrient content of chlorella, but the algae proved much more difficult and impractical to cultivate on a large scale than had been anticipated. As interest in chlorella as a food item diminished, interest in chlorella as a health supplement actually increased. Chlorella showed potential as a detoxification agent, for blood pressure support, to lower cholesterol levels, accelerate wound healing, and enhance immunity. For healthy people, chlorella is a good source of the same kinds of nutrients found in healthy green vegetables, which most people don't consume in large quantities. Some feel that green foods like chlorella are particularly effective in helping the body maintain optimal pH (acid/alkaline balance).
SUN Chlorella has been processed to break down the indigestible cell wall of chlorella cells, a process necessary to make the nutrients accessible to the human digestive system. Most chlorella supplement labels indicate 'cracked-wall' or 'crushed-wall' for this reason. SUN has an exclusive process for breaking down the cell wall, a process that doesn't use heat. SUN claims this makes the nutrients more usable. Many people experience increased energy when they begin taking green supplements like chlorella. Others use chlorella because they don't eat enough dark green vegetables. SUN Chlorella is also used as part of some detox protocols. Try SUN Chlorella if any of these factors apply to you. You can be sure you're getting all the benefits of chlorella by choosing SUN Chlorella.
Sun Chlorella (200mg) Description from Sun Chlorella
Today's major health problems are the result of disorders within our cells. Healthy cell metabolism and renewal are dependent on proper nutritional balance and nucleic acids. No vitamins or mineral can replace the value of whole foods.
Chlorella is a nutrient-dense superfood that provides more than 20 different vitamins and minerals, an abundance of naturally occurring Beta Carotene (Provitamin A), B12 as well as 18 Amino Acids, including all of the essential amino and fatty acids. It is particularly rich in lysine, which is often lacking in our high wheat American diet.
Chlorella, one of the highest natural sources of chlorophyll, contains 20 times the chlorophyll of alfalfa, nearly 10 times that of spirulina, 8 times that of wheat grass and 10 times that of barley grass.
What's more, each of Chlorella's cells are a self sufficient organism with all of the plant's life function taking place inside the cell that results in an unusually high concentration of nutrients in the Chlorella plant (chlorella is 50-60 percent protein compared to rice; 7 percent and soybeans; 39 percent).
Additionally chlorella contains a variety of minerals like iron and iodine as well as zinc.
As a nutritionally balanced whole food, chlorella is the perfect complement to any supplement. Without the proper nutritional balance our bodies may waste up to 95 percent of the high potency vitamins and minerals we take.
