Chlorella is a small, green algae cultivated in fresh water. Discovered in the 19th century, it became the object of great interest after World War II for its potential food value. Called a "complete" food by some, its use as a food source never panned out, but it has become a popular food supplement particularly in Japan and now increasingly in the United States.
Chlorella contains the highest levels of chlorophyll found in a plant source. It also contains significant amounts of protein, iron, vitamin B12, beta-carotene, and 19 amino acids. It is the food substance with the highest-known levels of RNA and DNA. This fact may have implications for repairing the cell’s genetic material. Chlorella has the potential to benefit human health in several areas. In animal studies, Chlorella significantly lowered blood pressure. In at least one human study published in 2003, a noteworthy number of participants saw a decline in blood pressure levels. Further studies are needed before concrete benefits can be established.
Chlorella enhances the immune system function. Scientists believe Chlorella increases T-cell activity and macrophages. These large cells protect against infection by removing waste products, harmful microorganisms, and toxins from the blood stream. With the increase in T-cells and macrophage comes an increase in interferon.
In a 2000 study, patients with fibromyalgia experienced significant benefits after taking Chlorella for two months. Further studies are needed before concrete benefits can be established. Chlorella has a strong cell wall the human digestive system cannot adequately break down. To facilitate maximum absorption and benefit, the cell wall must be broken before consumption. The cell wall of Vitabase Chlorella has been broken down mechanically to aid digestibility.
