Description

Organic Chlorella Powder is a nutrient dense algae.

Organic chlorella powder is a single celled green micro algae that naturally contains the phytonutrient chlorophyll. Chlorophyll captures the sun’s rays in plants and this super nutrient is captured as a bright green powder. Organic chlorella powder is a great way to get a nutritional boost without using supplementation.

Our organic chlorella is grown and harvested on a small island in the South China Sea in fresh water ponds filled with water extracted from deep below ground.  The water is carefully filtered before use to ensure it is completely pure with no pesticides or herbicides.

The surrounding area is made up of natural forest, with no risk of contamination from agricultural runoff.  It is carefully washed by hand and then dried quickly to preserve the maximum amount of nutrients.  It is then gently milled to produce the cracked wall variant of chlorella which can be broken down by the human gut more easily.

It is recommended to take Chlorella gradually (1tsp=4g). Start with a serving of ½ teaspoon (2g) a day building up to as much as 3 teaspoons daily (12g) maximum. Chlorella is nutritionally rich therefore a gradual intake can allow the body to adjust to it.

Family Tip:

  1. We like chlorella mixed with water as a simple health shot, but there are so many ways you can mix it into other recipes. It goes really well in yoghurt and smoothies, especially during cold and flu season.
  2. If you don’t like the taste you can mix into orange juice.
