Support immune function with premium Vega Chlorella. Researched extensively in Japan for many of todayâs key health concerns, chlorella is microscopic, unicellular, fresh-water green algae, power-packed with nutrition and developed to deliver:
Vega Chlorella has earned its reputation as the ultimate green superfood supplement, and boasts the highest concentration of chlorophyll of any known plant.
Grown outdoors on pristine, subtropical Japanese coral islands, in rich, spring-fed freshwater ponds, Vega Chlorellaâs cell walls are high-pressure jet sprayed to achieve optimum digestibility.
What is Chlorella?
One of the oldest forms of plant life on earth, chlorella is a unicellular, microscopic, fresh-water green algae, power-packed with nutrition. Chlorella is 68% complete protein, and contains rich stores of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF).
Chlorella has been extensively researched in Japan in connection with many of today’s key health concerns. As one of the most popular nutritional supplements in Japan, chlorella has earned its reputation as the ultimate green superfood.
Boasting the highest concentration of chlorophyll of any known plant (3 times more per serving than spinach)2, chlorella contains many components essential to life. NASA has studied chlorella for use in space travel as a photosynthetic link and source of nourishment and oxygen in controlled ecological life support systems3.
Why Should I Use Vega Chlorella?
Vega Chlorella is a unique strain, the result of 35 years of research, developed to deliver Chlorella Growth Factor. Grown outdoors in rich, spring-fed freshwater ponds on pristine, subtropical Japanese coral islands, Vega Chlorella is processed in state-of-the-art facilities under the strictest of quality standards. Vega Chlorella’s cell walls are high-pressure jet sprayed to increase digestibility without compromising nutritional content or shelf life.
Taking 2,500 mg of Vega Chlorella daily can help:
What is Chlorella Growth Factor?
CGF is a water-soluble extract—unique to chlorella—containing a variety of substances including amino acids, peptides, proteins, vitamins, sugars and nucleic acids. Produced by chlorella during intense photosynthesis and enabling chlorella to multiply four times every 20 hours—making chlorella one of the fastest-growing organisms on the planet—CGF is believed to be the core of some of chlorella’s health benefits.
How Does Chlorella Work?
In addition to delivering CGF, 2,500mg of chlorella offers a full spectrum of essential amino acids and a wealth of important vitamins and minerals, including:
An antioxidant powerhouse, chlorella is a concentrated source of chlorophyll, shown to have antioxidant properties.10 Free radical scavenging and quenching carotenoids are also abundant in chlorella, specifically the provitamin beta-Carotene, and lutein—prized for its role in supporting eye health.
Chlorella and the Environment
Chlorella demonstrates powerful, heavy-metal-binding capacities in water,11 easily absorbing toxins like lead, cadmium and nickel. Chlorella’s fast-growing, photosynthetic properties give it strong potential as an environmental clean-up, biomass fuel, and CO2 mitigation resource.12
