Chlorella is one of the world’s most powerful cleansing and detoxifying food. Packed with vitamins and minerals this superfood is rich in chlorophyll and antioxidants and also acts as a healing and anti-inflammatory agent.
The most common use of Chlorella is as a nutritional supplement. As well as being rich in carotenoids and chlorophyll, Chlorella contains vitamin A, all the B’s, C and E, and unlike synthetic forms found in multi-vitamin supplements – in their natural form, and without having to worry about dosage. Vitamins are however just the start, Chlorella is packed with minerals including potassium, zinc, magnesium, iron and calcium contains around 55% complete balanced protein.
The tropical climate of Ishigaki Island, 1000 km south of the mainland, is ideally suited to Chlorella cultivation. Clean air and fresh mountain spring water make for a complete absence of harmful contaminants. Chemical analysis shows Yaeyama Pacifica to have no detectable levels of mercury, lead, pesticide and herbicide. Unlike some Chlorella, Yaeyama Pacifica is grown outdoors in 45metre controlled ponds allowing the Chlorella full benefit of the strong tropical sunlight.

Chlorella is a powerful detoxifying food, so when starting always take a smaller amount for the first week, with an adequate intake of pure water. It is possible some new users may not tolerate chlorella – in the event that you experience stomach upset or nausea when taking chlorella, either reduce the amount you are taking or stop taking chlorella completely and seek advice from your health care practitioner. If pregnant, breastfeeding or taking medications, always consult your health care practitioner before starting on Chlorella.
