No, we’re not talking about kelp in the ocean or giant strands of seaweed that wash up on the shore – the algae we’re talking about is a phytonutrient, rich in chlorophyll and packed with vital nutrients. Broken Cell Wall Chlorella is formed by an amazing blue-green microalgae, and it has been scientifically proven to help mitigate toxicity in the body. One study found that “continuous BP [chlorella] intake accelerates the excretion of MeHg [methylmecury] and subsequently decreases tissue Hg [mercury] levels.”2 The power of chlorella to combat heavy metals is not limited to mercury. Another study found that chlorella helps the body rid itself of cadmium, concluding that “when exposed to Cd (cadmium), chlorella is an appropriate source which counteracts heavy metal poisoning.”3
Our chlorella is the most powerful strain of chlorella, Chlorellapyrenoidosa, boasting an abundance of nutrients beyond chlorophyll such as vitamin A, iron, zinc, B vitamins and 66% protein by weight! Last but definitely not least, our chlorella contains no binders or fillers. It’s just pure chlorella in tablet form that you can chew out of the bag, blend in smoothies, or simply swallow with water. It’s a super easy way to detox!
