Some of Chlorella’s Nutritive Qualities

Some of Chlorella’s Nutritive Qualities:

Extremely High in Vitamins, Minerals & Amino Acids (Protein) [Top]
There are over 70,000 species of algae in the world. Some are magnificent whole foods such as Chlorella Pyrensoida. Watershed Chlorella is this very particular strain of Chlorella. It is a green algae, one of the oldest foods on the planet. Fossils exist of Chlorella Pyrensoidosa that are over 4 billion years old. Chlorella is extremely high in vitamins and minerals (see chart on reverse side). It contains the full Vitamin B Complex (synonymous with high energy), Vitamins E & C and has a wide range of minerals, including magnesium, potassium, iron and calcium. It is great for anyone to take at any age, from infant or elderly.

Powerful Nutraceutical [Top]
The human body is perfectly capable of healing itself if it is provided with the necessary vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other nutrients it needs. There are many foods that have healing and preventative health qualities, but none possess such powerful and wide-ranging and diverse group nutrients as Chlorella. Chlorella provides the body with the proper nutrients it needs so it can heal itself.

Chlorophyll and Magnesium Promote Cardiovascular Health [Top]
Chlorella gets its name from the high amounts of chlorophyll it possesses, the highest of any plant known. Chlorophyll cells are nearly identical to hemoglobin (red blood cells) with one exception: Chlorophyll has a magnesium molecule at that center of it; hemoglobin has an iron molecule at the center of it. This is important because magnesium is essential for the heart to function properly. Every time our heart beats, it is utilizing magnesium to do so. Chlorophyll has been used successfully in the treatment of cardiac hypertension. It also cleanses that bowel, kidneys, liver and bloodstream. Chlorophyll is effective against anemia and stimulates the production of red blood cells in the body. It also helps carry oxygen around the body and to the brain. This is why Chlorella is often called “Brain Food”.

Contains Natural Digestive and other Enzymes [Top]
Chlorella contains enzymes such as chlorophyllase and pepsin, which are digestive enzymes. Enzymes perform a myriad of functions in the body. In fact, you can not even blink without the presence of enzymes. Chlorella has many different types of enzymes that our bodies need. It is essential that any algae you take is NOT freeze dried or pasteurized. If it is, then you have lost the crucial benefit of enzymes such as these.

Aides Digestion, Bad Breath, Constipation [Top]
This is something you will notice about Chlorella soon after first taking it. Chlorella reproduces at an incredible rate, quadrupling every 48 hours. When eaten, Chlorella causes the beneficial bacteria in our stomach (Lactobacillus) to multiply at four times the normal rate. This improves digestion and thus the body’s ability to take in nutrients greatly. Proper digestion, augmented with the necessary enzymes, is one of the keys to great health!

Best Natural Detoxifier Known for Heavy metals and other Synthetics [Top]
Information on tests kits now available for heavy metal testing.
Chlorella is comprised of a fibrous, indigestible outer shell (20%) and its inner nutrients(80%). It is the fibrous material that has been proven to actually bind with heavy metals and other synthetics that have accumulated in our bodies. The entire cleansing of the blood and organs will begin to happen after a period of 3-6 months depending on the dosage taken. A person taking 15-20 grams of Chlorella per day is not at all unheard of if someone is trying to combat a disease with the amazing medicinal properties of Chlorella. It is a whole-food, not a concentrate or extract, therefore you can NOT take too much of it because of its detoxifying abilities.

Shown to be helpful in the Fight against Alzheimer’s, Dementia & Attention Deficit Disorder
Alzheimer’s patients have all been demonstrated to have high levels of aluminum concentrated in their brains. This can come from several sources including soft drink cans (because the extremely low pH of soft drinks), many deodorants and cooking pots and utensils. Chlorella binds with aluminum and other heavy metals to pull them out. The huge amount of chlorophyll that Chlorella has provides oxygen to the brain aiding alertness and mental focus.

Powerful Immune System Builder: The Mysterious Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) [Top]
Chlorella has the ability to quadruple in quantity every 20 hours, which no other plant or substance on earth can do. It is programmed into its DNA to do so. It causes children and young animals to grow at a must faster rate and for damaged tissue to increase its healing rate. However, exactly what this CGF substance is still remains a deep mystery. It has hormone-like qualities to it and while it does not make adults grow faster, it does stimulate tissue repair, even if it has been ulcerated or damaged and has resisted traditional healing methods. Chlorella has been used effectively as a topical treatment for damaged tissue.

Chlorella is alkaline [Top]
Helps Balance your Body’s pH It is important that we maintain a balanced body pH of ideally about 7.2-7.4, which is about neutral. However because of our poor diet of junk food, fast food, over-cooked, processed foods, especially soft drinks (the worst is cola), which have a pH of 2.7. This is several thousand times more acidic than our bodies. This is important because all diseases start and live and thrive in an acidic environment and do not live well in an alkaline environment . Thus it follows that to keep ourselves as alkaline as possible.* Becoming too alkaline is rare but not unheard of. Cancer rates have risen steadily until now that fully one third of all people in the United States will get cancer in their lifetime! The rise of fast, junk and processed foods match those of rising cancer rates. Thirty years ago, cancer in children was almost unheard of. Now they have entire hospital wards given over to children with cancer. We are too acidic! That’s why we are getting sick!

How Watershed Chlorella’s Cell Wall is Opened [Top]
Chlorella’s indigestible cell wall needs to be ruptured to allow access to its nutrients and a variety of methods are used by other companies, some of which damage the nutrients. The method used by our Chlorella Producer (TCMC) ensures the highest quality, which is confirmed by an annual independent analysis by the Japan Food Research Laboratory. Japan is the only country that has strict standards and importation controls over heavy metals and bacterial content in Chlorella. The digestibility of our Chlorella is confirmed by the Japan Government’s Ministry of Health to be between 76% and 79%, the highest on the market.   Most brands claim to have broken the Chlorella cell wall so its nutrients can be adsorbed by the body. Our Chlorella was analyzed by Dr L. Lewis, Doctor of Physiology at Duke University in 1992. Using a Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), two samples of Chlorella were examined, ours and a competitor’s brand. Both were deemed to be free of contamination, however, our Chlorella was the only one to demonstrate that the cell wall had been broken in the SEM examination. The cell wall of our competitor’s Chlorella had collapsed but remained unbroken and was only 40% digestible.

The method of cultivation serves to ensure the purity of the harvest which is much easier to guarantee within a controlled environment than by taking “pot-luck” in a natural lake where some blue-green algae (AFA) is grown and where water quality, pH, bacteria and competing algae are variable, unpredictable and often toxic. Cyranobacterial algae such as Anabaina and AFA found in Klamath Lake are toxic regardless of whether they are in a polluted source or a pristine environment. This is not a concern for Chlorella which is a chorophyta, not cyanopheta, and never toxic regardless of the environment.

Chlorella Strengthens the Immune System. B-cells are active against viruses and other illnesses. Macrophages are large cells that surround and digest foreign substances in the body. They are active against foreign proteins and chemicals. There are a finite number in the body, therefore limiting the ability of the body to remove harmful substances from the blood. One of the ways to strengthen the immune system is the use of agents to stimulate macrophage production and activity. Interferon is a natural secretion of the body that is thought to be a stimulator of macrophages. Chlorella stimulates the activity of T-cells and macrophages by increasing interferon levels enhancing the immune system’s ability to combat foreign invaders whether they are bacteria, viruses, chemicals or foreign proteins.

In Japan, where Chlorella is consumed by an estimated 7 million people daily, it is referred to as a functional food, a category which distinguishes Chlorella as being of proven scientific benefit to the diet. It is not a health food supplement.

In 1974 the Japanese Government was obliged to introduce quality standards to control the importation of Chlorella because of the disparity between grades and purity values. In 1995 our Chlorella became the only producer ever to be licensed to import and sell their products with an official health food recognition seal in Japan.

Most producers use a “continuous-harvest” method drawing quantities of raw algae from the growing ponds as required. This method is certainly economically efficient, but it also presents a very real risk of breeding competing toxic organisms and bacteria.

There are various methods of separating the Chlorella cells from the carrier water. The cheapest and most common is to use flocculating chemicals that cause liquids to separate into individual layers. Chlorella producers using this method do not list the residual toxic chemicals in the nutritional contents on their labels!

In the manufacturing of our Chlorella, a complex separation system is used with micro-filter centrifuges allowing them to separate the cells without the use of chemicals.

Most brands claim to have broken the Chlorella cell wall so its nutrients can be adsorbed by the body. Our Chlorella was analyzed by Dr L. Lewis, Doctor of Physiology at Duke University in 1992. Using a Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), two samples of Chlorella were examined, ours and a competitor’s brand. Both were deemed to be free of contamination, however, our Chlorella was the only one to demonstrate that the cell wall had been broken in the SEM examination. The cell wall of our competitor’s Chlorella had collapsed but remained unbroken and was only 40% digestible.

Our Chlorella is independently tested on an annual basis by the Japanese Government’s Ministry of Health and is confirmed to be 76% to 79% digestible.

Recommended Daily Dosage

Chlorella: 250 mg tablets – 4 Tablets = 1 gram 1 teaspoon powder = 2 grams

A maintenance dosage of Chlorella is about 12 – 20 tablets per day. Although you will not see significant changes taking such a small amount of whole food, your body will be getting a broad array of nutrients unlike it has seen before. Since Chlorella is a detoxifying whole food, not a concentrate or extract, a person can eat as much as they desire without any fear of it becoming potentially toxic in any way.

Chlorella is best taken before a meal with probiotics, our friendly bacteria ( Acidophilus and Bifidus ). Chlorella causes probiotics to multiply at four times the rate of normal.
