There are not many health products out there worth celebrating. They are mostly hype.

While some work, they often are not as workable or useful as we hope or are led to believe.

But Mother Nature sure does have a way with her “products.” One such tiny superfood is so amazing it’s worth celebrating… and taking every day.


Chlorella consists of tiny green algae that grow in the freshwater ponds and lakes of Japan, Southeast Asia and Australia and in other areas.

First discovered in 1890 by a Dutch microbiologist, this unicellular alga packs a powerful punch.

It’s so powerful that scientists tried to package it as a meal for post-World War II famines and NASA space missions.


While only 3 to 8 micrometers in diameter, chlorella is among the most nutritionally dense foods in existence.

It contains a relatively enormous amount of protein when compared with spinach (two times as much), soybeans (38 times as much) and rice (55 times as much).

Not to mention, it’s chock-full of essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals.

It is packed with magnesium, which the body needs for thousands of different functions.

It helps stimulate probiotic growth in the gut and binds with toxins (including the pesticides and fungicides that linger on our foods) and heavy metals (from the mercury in silver fillings), moving them out of the body and keeping them from recirculating in the bloodstream.


Algae could be considered Mother Nature’s medical miracle. Not only does it naturally contain and support the most beneficial things humans need to thrive, but many of its natural components help reduce the negative effects of a modern lifestyle. That is, its nutrition helps protect against diseases like diabetes, heart disease, cancer, obesity and syndrome X (metabolic syndrome).

Our modern diet today is atrocious. Fast food, packaged and preserved food, genetically modified food, pesticides and depleted soil leaves the average person with health issues that are the direct result of a calorie-dense and nutritionally deficient diet. Even when we try to eat healthily, the food is often laced with herbicides and packaged with unhealthy ingredients.

By adding chlorella to your daily intake, you can help supercharge your health while reducing the effects of our poor modern diet and lifestyle. Here’s what Mother Nature’s little green product does:

  • Helps reduce body fat, blood glucose and blood serum cholesterol levels.
  • Helps counter type 2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease.
  • Boosts the immune system.
  • Improves irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), helps prevent constipation and aids digestion.
  • Acts as a natural antidepressant and stress reducer.
  • Helps with symptoms of fibromyalgia, ulcerative colitis and hypertension.
