Organic Chlorella from Viridian Nutrition delivers a therapeutic dose of 400mg broken cell wall chlorella in every capsule and has been certified Organic by the Soil Association. Chlorella is a single-celled microalgae which grows naturally in freshwater bodies across the globe. It is a type of phytoplankton – free floating aquatic plants which create their own energy from sunlight using the green photosynthetic pigment chlorophyll.
Chlorella is a source of iron and zinc which both contribute to the normal function of the immune system and normal cognitive function. It also contains vitamins C and E, both of which contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress and the B vitamins B1, B2, B6, and B12 to contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism, thus enhancing energy and vitality.
Viridian’s Organic Chlorella is grown and harvested on the island of Hainan in the South China Sea. The warm and bright climate here is ideal for cultivating chlorella, and the surrounding area is made up of natural forest meaning there is no risk of contamination from agricultural runoff. The freshwater ponds are filled with water extracted from deep below the ground, which is carefully filtered before use to ensure it is completely pure.
No chemical pesticides or herbicides are used, and it is allowed to grow outside under natural sunlight. The chlorella is carefully washed by hand then rapidly dried, preserving the maximum amount of nutrients. This dry powder is then milled to break the insoluble chlorella cell walls, which cannot be broken down by the human digestive system. The milling process produces the broken cell wall variant of chlorella, which makes the nutrients found inside the chlorella cell more accessible without losing any of the nutritional benefits.
Contains 100% active ingredients formulated by expert nutritionists with no artificial fillers and no nasties. Sourced according to Viridian’s strict ethical criteria including no animal testing, GMO or palm oil.
