Chlorella and Spirulina are species of algae (Chlorella vulgaris and Arthrospira platensis). They are two of the most complete foods in existence. Excellent sources of protein, they also provide carbohydrate and broad-spectrum vitamins, plus a wide range of minerals and enzymes. As many people supplement their diets with both Chlorella and Spirulina, we have combined them equally in one convenient tablet.

Both Chlorella and Spirulina are also regarded as highly useful general dietary supplements that provide broad support for a healthy diet. They are justifiably popular among people with active lifestyles, thanks to their high protein content.

Suggested Use We recommend that you take 6 tablets, all at once or 2-3 times during the day. The tablets should ideally be taken 30 minutes before meals and with water. We also recommend that you take a reduced dose (e.g. 3 tablets) during the first week to minimise detoxification symptoms. Store your Chlorella and Spirulina Tablets in a cool, dry place.

  • 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.

    Spirulina is one of Earth’s oldest life forms, an algae. It provides a huge range of nutrition and has been enjoyed for centuries by several Asian cultures. Modern science has found that it is of wide nutritional value, and the Japanese government classifies it as a functional food in its own right.

    Spirulina has amazing nutritional characteristics. Its main ingredient is protein, which typically forms around 60-70% of the product. It contains all eight of the essential amino acids – those that our body cannot manufacture for itself and that we must obtain from our food – making it a useful protein source for vegetarians. This is reinforced by the presence of important vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin B12 (often lacking in a vegetarian diet), Vitamin A, B-1, B-2, and B-6, Iron, Calcium and antioxidant compounds. Spirulina is also rich in other important phytonutrients, enzymes and trace elements. It provides Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, including Linoleic acid and Gamma-linolenic acid. Spirulina is a good, basic support to a healthy diet.
    The Production:
    Rainforest Foods Chlorella and Spirulina are grown organically on an island in the South China Sea. Laboratory-cultivated batches grow and multiply by photosynthesis in cultivation ponds containing filtered natural water. Once they have reached the required density the products are harvested. They are dried by a process known as spray evaporation, which retains virtually all the available nutritional value while rendering the product into powder form. Next, the tough cell wall of the Chlorella is broken. While this is an aid to detoxification as it binds toxins to it during digestion, it also creates a barrier which reduces the amount of nutrients available from within the cell. The cell wall-breaking process does not damage the contents, but does make them bio-available.

    The powder is compressed into tablets by a leading GMP (Good Marketing Practice)-registered pharmaceutical manufacturer. GMP registration requires rigorous inspection by the MHRA (Medicine and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency), the government agency responsible for ensuring that medicines and medical devices work and are safe. Regular GMP audits enforce optimum quality standards in the manufacture process. Rainforest Foods tablets do not contain bulking agents such as magnesium stearate, which can have an impact on taste (its potential to influence blood and immune system issues is currently under debate in the scientific community, also). Our tablets are 100% pure Chlorella powder and Spirulina powder, with nothing added and nothing taken away.
