Chlorella 200 tablets - certified organic source of chlorophyll | NOW
NOW Certified Organic Chlorella 200 tablets
- Naturally occuring Chlorophyll & Beta-Carotene
- Broken Cell Wall Algae
Chlorella is a green single-celled microalgae that has naturally occurring chlorophyll, plus beta-carotene, mixed carotenoids, vitamin C, iron and protein. The cell wall in this high quality chlorella has been broken down mechanically to aid digestibility.
NOW® Chlorella delivers the natural nutrient profile found in genuine whole foods.
Chlorella vulgaris is a fresh water algae and superfood. Chlorella provides a package of complete nutrition along with antioxidant, immune-boosting, and blood sugar-balancing properties. It also supports healthy cellular function and promotes detoxification, particularly heavy metal excretion.
To ensure the body can effectively utilize all of its unique benefits, Chlorella is prepared by rupturing the algal cell walls using a high-impact, jet-spray drying process to allow the naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, chlorophyll, nucleotides and proteins, to be optimally accessed.
Mother Nature’s Multivitamin
Chlorella has been extensively studied as a food source around the world due to its unique nutritional profile. It is a powerhouse of protein and considered a complete amino acid-based food; its photosynthetic efficiency allows it to yield more protein per unit area than any other plant. Chlorella vulgaris is also rich in an array of essential nutrients, including vitamin A, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, iron, phosphorus and zinc, and is a good source of vitamin B6 and magnesium. In addition, it’s rich chlorophyll content and levels of dietary nucleic acids (the compounds that make up nucleotide bases, which bind together to form DNA) which increase cellular energy (ATP) for improved intercellular communication, detoxification, and healing, are some of the highest naturally available in food.
One of nature’s most powerful natural detoxifiers, and widely used for detoxification support, Chlorella is well recognized for its ability to absorb heavy metals, such as uranium, mercury, copper, cadmium, and toxic chlorinated hydrocarbons. An animal study which investigated the influence of Chlorella on the excretion and tissue accumulation of methylmercury (MeHg), found it significantly lowered blood mercury levels as early as day 7 of the study. In addition, significant increases in the cumulative mercury eliminations into urine and feces were found, along with a significant reduction of mercury levels in the kidney and brain.
Blood sugar balance
Chlorella is also an excellent promotor of cardiometabolic health, supporting healthy blood sugar levels, normal levels of insulin and healthy weight by affecting the expression of insulin signaling pathways on the genetic level. A randomized, open-label clinical trial which compared supplementation of 1200 mg of Chlorella vulgaris extract together with a conventional therapy and vitamin E (200 mg/day) versus a conventional therapy and vitamin E (200 mg/ day) for 3 months found that while weight and BMI were decreased in both groups, liver markers, blood fats, sugar markers and HOMA- IR index were reduced only in the Chlorella group.
Chlorella also offers profound benefits for immunity and supports normal levels of inflammation. Its peptides support healthy nitric oxide production and markers of inflammation, both in vitro and in vivo. In addition, an 8-week randomized, double-blinded, placebo- controlled trial comparing 5 grams of Chlorella or placebo found concentrations of interferon-γ and interleukin-1β significantly increased, and that of interleukin-12 tended to increase in the Chlorella group. In addition, natural killer cell activities were significantly increased in Chlorella group. Chlorella increases salivary SIgA secretion and mucosal immunity in humans and supports normal levels of immunity in the airways, modulating seasonal symptoms. Chlorella also reduces oxidative stress levels and its pigments help improve red blood cell antioxidant status, supporting healthy cognition in the elderly.
Chlorella is a highly researched, potent superfood that not only provides concentrated source of balanced nutrition but provides the added benefits of rich source of chlorophyll and nucleic acids for extraordinary metabolic support. Together with its ability to bind heavy metals and support immunity, blood sugar and antioxidant status, Chlorella is a superfood that should not be missed.
