Cracked Cell Chlorella Powder (organic) - Nutra Organics
Chlorella (Chlorella vulgaris) is a microscopic, single-celled plant that grows in fresh water and is about the same size as a human blood cell. It multiplies quickly, with a complete reproductive cycle every 20 hours. Chlorella is a green algae, drawing its color from an unusually high amount of chlorophyll (more than any other known plant).
The cells in chlorella are cracked using the process of physical grinding by milling which takes 50 minutes. The chlorella is ground for 25 minutes and then the cell is cracked during the remaining 25 minutes. Both the grinding and cell cracking occur at a temperature of 46 degrees F. (8 degrees C.)
Chlorella contains an amazing amount of essential nutrients: vitamins, macrominerals, trace minerals, essential fatty acids such as GLA, complete proteins, nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), chlorophyll and a vast spectrum of phytochemicals. Actually, scientists have not yet even named all the nutrients found in Chlorella.*
