Melrose Clean Green Chlorella pyrenoidosa is a single celled fresh water micro algae. It is the richest source of chlorophyll. This green super food is believed to be one of the earliest forms of life on earth, approximately 2 billion years old.
Chlorella is cultured in shallow open ponds in southern Taiwan. Spring water, fresh air, sunshine and added nutrients are needed to help chlorella grow.
Common chlorella is hard to digest and use by the body. In traditional processing methods digestibility is only 40% to 50%.
Melrose Clean Green Chlorella is processed by a Patented Broken Cell Wall process. Through a special low-pressure flash expansion broken cell process, chlorella cell walls break in 3 seconds and the surface reveals numerous pores ( similar to popped corn). This increases digestibility to >80%.
Melrose Clean Green Chlorella contains a wide array of vitamins and minerals. Considered to be a complete protein it is made up of 60% protein and contains all 8 essential amino acids. It is nature's richest source of Chlorophyll, thus its powerful cleansing and detoxifying ability.
It is high in phytonutrients and antioxidants that can offer protection against toxins and other pollutants.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Chlorella Growth Factor?
Chlorella growth factor (CGF) is a nucleotide-peptide complex found in chlorella.
Researches have discovered that CGF is produced during intense photosynthesis that enables chlorella to grow rapidly. Experiments with microorganisms, animals and children have shown that CGF promotes growth faster than normal, without any harmful effects. In adults it enhances RNA/DNA function; these are responsible for production of protein, enzymes and energy and stimulating tissue repair and protection against toxins in the body.
Dr Minchinon Kimura of Japan found chlorella to contain 10% RNA and 3% DNA making it the highest known food substance in nucleic acids.
Who should take Melrose Clean Green Chlorella?
- Melrose Clean Green Chlorella can be used by anyone feeling sluggish and tired.
- Those who suffer from bad breath and body odour.
- Chlorella is particularly good for those with irregular bowel motions.
It is important to maintain a healthy bowel and liver and increase the body's ability to eliminate wastes and improve the body's ability to absorb nutrients.
Melrose Clean Green Chlorella will help to cleanse, detoxify and rejuvenate the body.
What time of day or night should I take it?
Chlorella can be taken at any time of the day. It can be taken all at once or it can be taken in small dosages throughout the day, which is preferable. It is best taken 20-30 minutes before mealtime so it can help with digestion and intake of nutrients. Morning is also a good time to take Chlorella, but never just before or after drinking coffee or soft drinks since caffeine is extremely detrimental to the digestive process.
Can I take too much Chlorella?
It is best to think of Chlorella as a food because that is exactly what it is: one of the purest, most potent foods on earth. A person can not take too much Chlorella because it is naturally detoxifying. Therefore the fear of Chlorella accumulating and becoming toxic to the body is not present. However, there is a "comfort level" with every person where he or she knows how much Chlorella to take per day. In general, that level will be about 5-8 grams per day.
Can Chlorella be given to children?
Absolutely, In fact, Chlorella has been shown to promote rapid growth in children, as well as build in them superior immune systems. In studies with identical twins, the one given the chlorella grew much faster, much healthier and had much fewer instances of colds, flu, etc. than the twin who was not given Chlorella.
How much scientific research has been done on Chlorella?
Chlorella is one of the MOST scientifically researched foods in human history, as is Spirulina, which NASA has determined will be one of the first foods grown on the space station when it is completed. The research done on both of these has come from all over the world by scientists at universities, private industry and Chlorella manufacturers themselves. Not a single negative aspect of Chlorella has ever been sited as far as human health is concerned.
Chlorella has been shown to:
- Strengthen the immune system and protects the liver
- Detoxify heavy metals, chemicals and other toxins in the body
- Normalize digestion and bowel function
- Stimulate growth and repair
- Rich in Beta-carotene, the precursor of Vitamin A
Clean Green Chlorella is suitable for anyone including children.
A small number of new users cannot tolerate chlorella. If you experience gastrointestinal distress or nausea when starting with chlorella, try reducing the dosage and start again with a smaller dose, then build up slowly. However, if symptoms are severe, or persist even with a small dose, stop taking chlorella and seek advice from your medical practitioner.
