Jarrow Formulas Yaeyama Chlorella 150 capsules is a subspecies of Chlorella vulgaris, a single-celled, fresh water algae.
Yaeyama Chlorella is grown in the environmentally pristine coral reef region of Japan’s Ishigaki Island using mountain spring water, tropical sunshine and food grade nutrients
Yaeyama Chlorella cell walls are broken by high impact jet-spray drying that pulverizes the algae wall for increased absorption of its vital nutrients. Yaeyama Chlorella offers rich amounts of chlorophyll, Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF is high in RNA/DNA), proteins, beta carotene, B vitamins and various minerals. The phytonutrients in Yaeyama Chlorella support healthy cell growth and development and promote detoxification, especially heavy metal excretion. “Yaeyama” means richer, more flavorful and more nutritious chlorella!
who can benefit from Yaeyama Chlorella
Yaeyama Chlorella provides a flavorful and nutritious chlorella rich in protein and perfect for promoting detoxification!
Chlorella vulgaris is a fresh water algae and superfood grown in the pristine coral reef region of Japan’s Ishigaki Island. Jarrow Formulas’ Yaeyama 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, Jarrow’s Yaeyama 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 in Japan 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.
Jarrow Formulas’ Yaeyama 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, Yaeyama Chlorella is a superfood that should not be missed.

How to avoid lead poisoning
Although exposure to lead has decreased within the last two decades, it is still a concern and caution is advised, especially for children who have access to toys with lead-based paint or individuals who live in older homes. In some instances, lead can leach from the main water pipes and into the household water supply. If exposed to lead, eating a healthy diet can help reduce its absorption by the body.
When lead is consumed, research shows it can cause learning and behavior problems; as it accumulates, it can cause lasting problems with growth and development. Infants and children are at a higher risk because they absorb lead more quickly than adults, in addition to being more likely to put non-food items that might contain lead in their mouth.
PFAS pollutants causing turmoil
In October, nearly every construction project came to a grinding halt in the Netherlands, because not a single project except the smallest ones can be completed without excessive paper work or laboratory tests.
Why? The current legal threshold for PFAS, an abbreviation for perfluorinated alkylated substances has been set extremely low until the government is able to define a proper health limit for contaminated soil so as to prevent contamination of clean soil with more heavily contaminated soil.
If cemeteries hadn't been exempt from the rule, not a single dead body could have been interred, since PFAS-chemicals , also known as 'forever chemicals' have accumulated in our bodies to an extent that exceeds the legally set threshold, which is currently as low as the lowest possible detection level.
How to beat andropause, the condition that ails all elderly malesAndropause is a medical condition, similar to the female menopause, that can affect men between the ages of 40 and 65. Men do not have a clear-cut signpost to mark the transition. In women estrogen drops dramatically at menopause, but testosterone levels in men drop very gradually over many years and decades. The bodily changes in andropause occur very gradually in men and may be accompanied by changes in attitudes and moods, fatigue, a loss of energy, sex drive, stamina, and physical agility.
Andropause may be triggered not only by declines in testosterone, but in the "female" hormone estrogen as well.
There is a growing interest, as well as a booming industry, in the use of testosterone therapy for middle-aged and older men. This interest has led to the definition of a new condition, termed 'andropause' implying that this condition is due to falling levels of testosterone. This trend risks replicating both the rejuvenation fads of a century ago and the recent experience in estrogen therapy for menopause that has been propelled for decades by advocacy substituting for reliable scientific evidence. Is testosterone therapy appropriate for men with symptoms of male menopause? There is no scientific agreement on this topic.
But it stands to reason that hormones should be used only as a last resort since they have serious risks if misused.
Beware the chairJust 'hitting the gym' several times a week may not be enough to off-set the negative consequences when you spend most of your time sitting on a chair or bench. According to scientists, prolonged sitting should carry a public health warning.
This past week we were once again blessed with lovely warm summer weather. Nearly invariably, most meat lovers will almost instinctively take their BBQ out to prepare meat. But is having barbecued meat such a great idea?
How to eliminate toxins?A while ago, there was a major uproar in the Dutch media about an advice given by a celeb health enthusiast to drink a glass of water with clay in order to 'detox' the body.
Unfortunately, while it is true that clay can bind to toxins, clay is not the best choice for two reasons. The clay itself can be polluted, but moreso, clay isn't the best option.
