  • The Story:
    Chlorella is a single-celled, blue-green algae noted for its nutrient-richness and its role as a complete food. It makes available much of the nutrition we require, and its broad spectrum of protein, carbohydrate and vitamin content makes it a highly useful supplement for people following a vegetarian or vegan diet.

    Rainforest Foods Chlorella is a variant known as Chlorella vulgaris. It provides a good spread of vitamins, including Vitamin A, Vitamins B1, 2, 3, 6 and 12, plus Vitamin C. Chlorella is a healthy source of several key minerals, including Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorous and Zinc. It is also a rich source of protein, containing 7 out of the 8 essential amino acids – those we cannot make for ourselves and must obtain from our diet.

    Chlorella is also a significant source of Omega-3 fatty acids, including Linoleic and Alpha-linolenic acids. These are required in a healthy diet and often missing in modern, processed foods. As a good, basic dietary support, Chlorella has few peers.

    Chlorella has a tough cell wall. This is regarded as useful for waste elimination. However, the cell wall also acts as a barrier, reducing the amount of nutrients within the cell that are available to the body. The cell wall in Rainforest Foods' Chlorella is broken using a high impact jet spraying process that maintains the nutritional integrity of the cell contents. This means that the nutrients within the cell are both accessible - thanks to the broken cell walls - and undamaged by the method used to achieve this.
