Sun Chlorella (500mg) 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 always be sure you're getting all the benefits of chlorella by choosing SUN Chlorella.
