Nature has given us a profound gift for our health. It is found in an amazing, very small one-cell green algae, called Chlorella. This unique form of algae has been a source of incredible nutrition for humans as well as animals. What makes chlorella even more special is its ability to detox the myriad of chemical and heavy metals found in our environment and bodies. Chlorella has an amazing ability to safely remove all forms of toxicity from our body.
The story of chlorella goes back a long, long time. It is estimated that it appeared on earth two billion years ago. Chlorella belongs to the first unicellular organisms from this time. This microscopic green algae is a true survivor!
How has this simple plant managed to survive all these billions of years? Equipped with an especially strong multi-layer cell wall, Chlorella has protected itself against life threatening environmental conditions and has consequently developed an extremely efficient behaviour pattern. Drought, radiation, highly concentrated poisons such as heavy metals, pesticides and other organic solvents have not managed to drive Chlorella to extinction. On the contrary, it has constantly developed new survival strategies allowing it to thrive.
The mid 1970s, the Japanese scientists were the first to develop a process that allowed the nutrient content of Chlorella to be readily available for human consumption. It is estimated that more than ten million Japanese now eat chlorella daily for both their nutritional and therapeutic needs.
The popularity of Chlorella has no doubt played a major role in Japanese longevity. Japanese life expectancy is the world’s highest, at 87 years for women and 81 years for men. The average lifespan of the Japanese is the highest it has ever been, and they keep getting older! In 2019, the number of Japanese aged 90 reached 2.31 million, including over 71,000 centenarians. It’s easy to understand why the daily consumption of Chlorella is one of the dietary secrets that insures long life for so many Japanese people.
A Powerhouse of Nutrition
What is it about this small unicellular green algae that makes it a powerhouse for health? For one thing, it is recognized as one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. It is not an exaggeration to say that Chlorella (C.vulgaris) is nature’s own multivitamin. That’s because Chlorella contains all the essential nutrients needed to sustain life and much more.
Chlorella is rich in vitamins A (beta carotene), C, E, and vitamin K, containing all the B-complex vitamins (including B12), zinc, iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, selenium, iodine, omega-3 essential fatty acid, and the enzyme pepsin. Chlorella also contains 58 to 70 percent of bio-available protein and all the essential amino acids. It is one of the few foods that naturally contain vitamin-D. In addition, it has more beta-carotene than carrots and more than five times more chlorophyll than wheatgrass. The iron content of chlorella is particularly impressive and can provide up to 40 per cent of your daily requirements.
Chlorella is also a rich source of the carotenoids, lutein and zeathanthin. They are known as the “eye vitamins” helping to safeguard the eye’s macula by protecting it from damaging blue light (emitted from artificial lighting and digital devices). Studies have shown that both lutein and zeaxanthin can protect against age-related macular degeneration, eye strain and fatigue, cataracts, and even help to prevent vision loss and blindness.
The Chlorella Growth Factor
Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) is a unique complex found in the cell nucleus of chlorella. CGF is produced during intense photosynthesis which allows chlorella to grow so rapidly. Each cell multiplies into two new cells about every 20 hours, and the CGF promotes this rapid rate of reproduction. CGF is a complex combination of key nutrients including amino acids, vitamins, essential fats and more.
Experiments show that CGF promotes faster growth without undesirable side effects. It improves RNA/DNA functions that are responsible for the production of proteins, enzymes and energy at the cellular level, stimulating tissue repair and protecting cells from certain toxic substances.
Chlorella is the ultimate anti-ageing nutrition for our DNA. When eaten regularly, chlorella can assist in the repair of damaged genetic material, protecting our health and slowing down the aging process.
Proven Benefits of Chlorella Growth Factor:
- Promotes rapid growth, strengthens the immune system and promotes rapid tissue healing.
- Stimulates the immune system: CGF stimulates the production of interferon and protects T and B lymphocytes which are the body’s front line against infections. Increasing resistance to disease
- Purifying, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties — thanks to the high concentrations of chlorophyll present in the CGF
- Glutathione, present in CGF, has the ability to bind to heavy metals, solvents and pesticides and convert them into a form that can be excreted in urine or bile. It is also a powerful antioxidant that helps fight harmful free radicals in the body, and helps in detoxification. Glutathione helps to eliminate toxins from the liver.
- Prebiotic Function – CGF stimulates the growth of good bacteria and supports the digestive system. It regulates the intestinal flora. A Japanese study showed that due to its “rich supply of prebiotic food, chlorella can actually triple the rate of growth of good bacteria in the gut.”
- Beneficial in the prevention of allergic diseases and prevents casein allergy, a major cause of milk allergy.
- Resistance and endurance: true energy concentrate very useful for athletes
- Tissue repair — through their growth and life activating properties, CGF nucleic acids stimulate tissue regeneration and repair of damaged tissue without causing uncontrolled cell proliferation in the form of malignant tumors.
- Helps prevent high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease by controlling blood sugar and reducing high cholesterol
A Heavy Weight in the World of Detoxing
One of chlorella’s most significant health benefits is that it wraps itself around even the most stubborn toxins in our bodies such as cadmium, lead, mercury and uranium. More importantly, it not only safely eliminates all these dangerous toxins from the body but also prevents them from being reabsorbed. In our toxic world, it is imperative in order to optimize health and healing to safely remove all forms of toxins. By taking chlorella daily, we are able to safely and effectively detoxify the harmful heavy metals and the many chemicals we are exposed to on a daily basis.
One study showed that routine chlorella intake decreases the chance of heavy metal poisoning in the bloodstream. It also helps to reduce the risk of muscular and bone damage due to elevated levels of cadmium in the body. The study concluded that “chlorella is an appropriate source which counteracts heavy metal poisoning, to decrease the damage of tissues by decreasing cadmium absorption.”1
Supplementing with chlorella has shown promising results in alleviating some of the adverse effects of radiation therapy on the body and even helping to eliminate radioactive particles. But perhaps more impressive than its ability to chelate and flush out radioactive toxins is chlorella’s ability to actually protect from radiation.
Glyphosate is the main ingredient in the weed-killer Roundup® and is the most widely used chemical herbicide in history. Chances are, this chemical is in at least some of the food you’ll eat today, even if that food is organic, non-GMO, and ‘natural’. The good news is that Chlorella’s detoxing power helps to bind to glyphosate in the GI track so it can be safely eliminated.
Chlorella has been reported to be helpful for various health problems such as hypertension, arteriosclerosis, high cholesterol, cardiac problems, constipation, bowel toxicity, dermatitis, allergies, arthritis, diabetes mellitus, fibromyalgia, Epstein- Barr virus infection, candidiasis and others. Besides that, it has also been found to enhance the ability of the immune system, slow down the ageing process, stimulate growth, reduce the risk of cancer, enhance the healing process, rejuvenate and vitalize the body.
The Secret of Biogenesis’ Chlorella’s Power
Like so many nutritional products, the real benefits are only available when you know more about how and where the product was grown and processed. The nutrition and therapeutic power of Chlorella is only fully available when it is grown in pristine conditions, processed and packaged correctly. One more critical factor is the integrity of the company. Biogenesis Chlorella company ticks all those boxes.
Biogenesis is 100 percent Australian owned and operated. In fact, it is the only ‘Australian Made, Australian Grown’ licensed producer of Chlorella. From its farm in tropical Queensland, right through to packing and distribution, its products are grown and processed in Australia to the highest quality standard. Unlike many other Chlorella farms, the pristine water and abundant sunlight of Biogenesis’ Chlorella tropical Queensland farm, insures the purest and most nutrient dense algae product available any where in the world.
Biogenesis is committed to growing and harvesting their ingredients with as little impact on the environment as possible. All their products are free from herbicides, pesticides and environmental contaminants. Biogenesis also uses sustainable farming practices and never tests on animals.
BioGenesis has developed an innovative cell cracking technology.
Chlorella consists of a hard outer shell that protects the nutrients within the Chlorella molecule. It has been found that cracking the cell wall enables the nutrients to be more readily absorbed during digestion. Many Chlorella companies use a grinding or pulverizing process to achieve this. However, this may destroy the Chlorella cell and leave the nutrients susceptible to oxidation and nutritional losses.
The Biogenesis Biodynamic System utilizes a combination of vacuum and ultrasonic technology that enables the nutrients of the cell to be made available without the risk of oxidation or nutritional losses. This means that Biogenesis Chlorella is able to deliver its powerhouse of all its nutrients efficiently to every cell in your body.
The Unique Biogenesis Growth System
Marine algae grows naturally in oceans and flowing river systems. Water movement is critical to algae growth, ensuring that they receive sufficient sunlight, air and nutrients as they flow. Conventional algae growth systems use large mechanical paddle wheel type systems, to physically push the water around oval shaped “racetrack” type ponds, or alternatively the algae is grown in industrial Bioreactor type internal systems, often using sugars to replace natural sunlight.
BioGenesis has developed a unique and innovative growth system that replicates the natural water flow of a river, using water pressure as the motion force. This is the same as in nature where water flows down from mountains and pushes water across river plains to the ocean. The BioGenesis system uses narrow maze-type channels to replicate a river, flowing the water back to the start of the maze for each circuit. This enables algae to grow to the highest quality-standard, exactly as nature intended.
