Chlorella is a fresh water algae, and one of the oldest foods on the planet. Fossils exist of Chlorella Pyrensoidosa that are over 4 billion years old. Chlorella is extremely high in vitamins and minerals. It contains the full Vitamin B Complex, Vitamins E & C and has a wide range of minerals, including magnesium, potassium, iron and calcium. Chlorella has a tough outer shell, which is not digested by humans. The outer shell must be broken so that our digestive system can get to the important nutrients inside the chlorella cell. However the indigestible shell also has important health benefits because of its ability to bind toxic heavy metals, and chemicals and eliminate them via the bowel. It is great for anyone to take at any age, from infant to the elderly.
Jade Chlorella is superior to other Chlorella products on the market. Jade Chlorella is independently tested on an annual basis by a Laboratory of the Japanese Ministry of Health and is confirmed to be 76% to 79% digestible, the highest on the market. In 1974 the Japanese Government was obliged to introduce quality standards to control the importation of Chlorella because of the disparity between grades and purity values. In 1995 our source became the only producer ever to be licensed to import and sell their products with an official health food recognition seal in Japan.
A University Study has proven the superiority of Jade Chlorella. In the manufacturing of Jade Chlorella, a complex separation system is used with micro-filter centrifuges allowing them to separate the cells without the use of chemicals. Most brands claim to have broken the chlorella cell wall so the body can absorb its nutrients. Dr L. Lewis, Doctor of Physiology at Duke University in 1992, analyzed Jade Chlorella. Using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), two samples of Chlorella were examined, a competitor's brand and Jade Chlorella. Both were deemed to be free of contamination, however, Jade Chlorella was the only one to demonstrate that the cell wall had been broken in the SEM examination. The cell wall of the competitor brand of Chlorella had collapsed but remained unbroken and was only 40% digestible.
