What is Chlorella + How to take Chlorella

What is Chlorella

Chlorella is a blue-green algae that is found in bodies of water in and around Japan and Taiwan.  Chlorella is considered a superfood because it is potent in many nutrients and can stand alone as a whole food.  It contains a range of vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, amino acids and antioxidants along with protein, fat, carbohydrates and fiber that make up whole food sources.  Although not your average plant-based superfood supplement, Chlorella proves that aquatic plant-life can do a body good too. 

Chlorella is more than just unique for its choice of underwater habitat, however.  It is one of the best superfoods for improving the human system that becomes bogged down with toxins and heavy metals over time.  Chlorella’s chlorophyll and other superior phyto-nutrient content make it excellent for cleansing the body of harmful substances that can cause a sluggish system.  As these toxins build up, the body begins to break down, which leads to a variety of health conditions ranging from minor fatigue to life-threatening diseases. 

Chlorella helps reverse body deterioration and restore energy, nutrients and vitality to the entire body.  It is especially beneficial at strengthening and oxygenating blood, which is required for a healthy immune system.  As such, Chlorella is known to offer many health benefits including supporting normal blood pressure, revving the metabolism, reducing pain caused by swelling and easing several common and serious digestive disorders by introducing healthy flora into the digestive system

How to take Chlorella

Chlorella is a phenomenal dietary choice for vegans and vegetarians who are looking for sources of protein in their diet, as well as other essential nutrients that are often found in meats and dairy products.  Additionally, adding Chlorella to your diet can take the place of a daily vegetable.  So if salads and greens aren’t your favorite part of a meal, Chlorella is an simple substitution. 

Chlorella Powder is easy to add to your diet in a variety of ways.  It blends beautifully into smoothies, juices and other cold drinks.  Mix it into yogurts, cottage cheese or oatmeal to cleanse the body and exponentially increase your daily nutrition.  Or, try making a scrumptious dip out of it including guacamole, onion dip or hummus. 

Zokiva offers Chlorella Powder in its most bioavailable form.  By using a rapid pressure method, we grind down the thick cell membrane of our Chlorella to its purest form to maximize its nutritional content for you.

What is Chlorella?

All hail Chlorella, perhaps the oldest superfood on the planet!  This blue green single-celled algae is the most potent source of chlorophyll in the world and is 60% protein, making it an excellent vegan alternative to meat and diary products.  Chlorella has a good deal of essential fatty acids and 18 amino acids, including all of the essential amino acids we cannot produce ourselves and must consume in our diet.  Plus, it has a ton of carotenes, vitamins, including A, B1, B2, B5, B6, B12, C, E and K, and minerals such as phosphorus, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium, among many other phyto-nutrients

So what do these billions-of-years old nutrients mean for our bodies?  A LOT!  Chlorella is known for its body purification and detoxification benefits stemming from chlorophyll.  Chlorophyll is responsible for much more than Chlorella’s color.  It is one of the main sources of Chlorella’s amazing immune boosting and energy sustaining properties.  Just as chlorophyll gives energy to plants, it can do the same in the human body.  This enhances the body’s immune defenses to fight off infections, scavenges free radicals that threaten our cells, squashes inflammation and eliminates a host of toxins that enter or bodies in a variety of ways.  And more energy obviously helps keep bodies in motion, allowing greater stamina and focus for physical and mental activity.

Detoxification is one of the greatest ways to prevent illness and disease, and Chlorella is one of the best supplements to cleanse the body.  Chlorella promotes good bacteria, probiotics and flora in the intestines, which aids digestion and helps eliminate toxins through normal waste channels.  Many people use Chlorella to relieve gastritis, constipation and inflammatory conditions of the stomach, such as ulcers, colitis and Crohn’s disease.  Good bacteria also combats candida and yeast and boosts the entire immune system. 

Chlorella shows incredible benefits for the cardiovascular system, circulatory system and endocrine system, which supports heart and blood health.  It’s known to reduce triglycerides and harmful LDL cholesterol that can clog arteries, while also stabilizing blood pressure levels within a normal range.  These factors help reduce the risk of heart disease and other heart-related health conditions.  Additionally, Chlorella assists with metabolic syndrome, that is, insulin resistance and blood sugar maintenance.  These both affect diabetics and increase risk of obesity.  

Zokiva’s Chlorella Powder is a bio-available superfood for sustained energy, immunity and detoxification.  Unlike other superfoods, Chlorella must be broken down before it can be consumed, making our cracked cell Chlorella Powder the best way to enjoy the benefits of this phenomenal underwater health food.
