The history of chlorella
Chlorella is a microscopic (of 2 to 10 µm diameter) single celled green micro algae that has existed on earth for over 2.5 billion years.
Having survived in exactly the same form since the pre-Cambrian period, this micro algae owes its extraordinary survival to two highly unusual features: its unique cell wall and its astonishing capacity of reproduction.
During approximately the first billion years of the earth's existence, deadly gases such as ammonia, methane and carbon dioxide made its atmosphere heavy. In the evolution of Earth, primitive green plant life such as Chlorella had the role to filter out these deadly elements, to eventually change the earth's environment to one capable of supporting flora (plants) and fauna (animals).
Each Chlorella cell is complete. As a matter of fact, Chlorella was the first cell form to contain a true nucleus within its nuclear envelope. The cell walls serve to confine and defend the green algae cell unit, making Chlorella very resistant to changes in environmental conditions, as well as to attacks by other organisms.
Chlorella contains the highest known source of chlorophyll of any plant.
Chlorella means green from "chlor" and small from "ella". This edible medicinal micro alga was first discovered in the late 1800's by a Dutch biologist, Beyerinck. Chlorella's studies are extensive. For over fifty years thousands of scientific articles from universities, medical institutions and scientists have been published about Chlorella and the virtues of this medicinal green algae, as well as numerous certifications such as FDA's, ISO 9002, FGMP's and CASJAS'.
No other algae has generated as much scientific and medical interest as Chlorella!!
Aside from being the subject of much medical research in the USA, Japan, USSR, Germany, France, England and Israel, this green algae with medicinal qualities has been researched by the Rockefeller Foundation, the Carnegie Institute, the Pasteur Institute and NASA. As a matter of fact, for the use of astronauts traveling into space, the researchers from NASA have investigated the fact that Chlorella is so complete that one could survive with it for long periods of time .
Because Chlorella has been found to contain over 50% protein, German scientists during World Wars I and II studied it very closely as a possible way to alleviate food shortages. Then during the 1950's, The Carnegie Institute in Washington took up the study where the German scientists had left off and found a way to grow Chlorella commercially. They thought that this wonder food could help bring a solution to the world hunger. During the postwar food shortage in Japan, the Japanese government sponsored Dr. Tamiya to harvest and develop Chlorella commercially and to make one of the finest whole foods in the world.
The scientists' interest resided essentially in the discovery that this wonder food, apart from its high protein and chlorophyll content, also includes an astonishing range of nutrients such as multi vitamins, amino acids, minerals, nucleic acids, CGF, enzymes, dietary fiber and other nutrients essential to an optimal nutrition.
Chlorella is a green algae with medicinal qualities
However, its tough outer cell remained indigestible until the 1970's. Chlorella became available to mankind as a whole food when a patented procedure solved the digestibility problem by breaking down the Chlorella cell walls.
From numerous Japanese chlorella studies showing a longer life expectancy when animals are fed with the green algae- an average extension of almost two years compared to the average animal life span! - as well as from the growing concerns of industrial and environmental pollution, Japan became the largest consumer of Chlorella, as a medicinal whole food, with an estimated 10 million users. Referred to more as a nutraceutical food rather than as a nutritional & health food supplement, Chlorella is more popular in Japan than vitamin C! NASA once also expressed interest in growing Chlorella as one of the first whole foods on the space station when completed.
In Japan, many medical doctors have supplemented diets of hospitalized patients with Chlorella for its wealth of nutritional and health benefits and to speed up their recovery. Unlike Japan or the rest of the Orient, where algae have been used for centuries, the popularity of this wonder food in the West is only recent and remain to be much more widely experienced because of its astounding healing, nutritional, detoxification, anti-inflammatory and nutritive properties.

"...I became really worried with regular occurrences of rectal bleeding in the bathroom. I frightened myself with thoughts about stomach cancer or some equally serious disease. Eventually I got diagnosed with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). A friend recommended Bio+ Chlorella to help alkalinize my body. It took me a while to get to that amazing product. But honestly, I never expected such a difference: from the day I took these green pills, my bleeding stopped! Unbelievable. I also noticed being filled with more energy..."
