Where does Chlorella Powder come from?
Chlorella is a fast growing, single-celled micro algae, that has been called a fix-all supplement due to its wide range of health benefits. It appeared on earth more than 2 billion years ago, making it one of the oldest foods on the planet. Chlorella grows in freshwater and is considered one of the primary superfoods due to its exceptional nutritional qualities. The name ‘chlorella’ comes from the Greek word for green and the Latin ending ‘ella’ which means small, which is exactly how it looks under a microscope after it has been harvested. It is natures highest source of chlorophyll which makes it a popular source of food and energy.
Chlorella is native to Taiwan and Japan but has been researched and grown all over the world since the 19th century however it wasn’t until the 20th century when it became very popular. During this time, there were global concerns about over-population in the world. More specifically, there were fears of a hunger crisis. Countries all over the world feared they would not be able to provide enough food to sustain the growing population and the chlorella crop was seen as a potential solution. Chlorella was a key factor in the answer to world hunger because it was quick to grow, it was cost efficient, and it was packed full of protein and other nutrients that would sustain the body. Scientists agreed that chlorella would be a suitable replacement for meat if traditional agriculture came to a standstill.
The population problem never came to that point but the research carried out on chlorella still stands to show it is an incredibly beneficial supplement to take, especially for vegans and vegetarians. Our Chlorella Powder is made from 100% raw organic chlorella, sourced with respect for nature and certified organic by the Irish Organic Association and by the European Commission, so you know you’re getting the best of a pure product. After it is harvested, it is processed into a powder form that is perfect to be taken with liquid drinks or consumed as food. Our Chlorella Powder is so versatile and can be taken as part of every meal.
