Chlorella is ubiquitous in freshwater environments and is known as one of the earliest forms of life. Chlorella has been on earth since the Precambrian Period for more than 2.5 million years. Chlorella vulgaris is a spherical, eukaryotic, unicellular alga, with a cell diameter of approximately 5 - 10 pm. The cell wall contains hemicelluloses, which accounts for the stability and rigidity of the cells. It has an asexual reproductive cycle, with the production of autospores from the mature large cell, by dividing the cell into smaller units. One mature cell divides into four new ones every 16 - 20 hours. The algal cells utilize sunlight for photosynthesis.
Parry's Chlorella is grown in environmentally controlled raceway ponds where the temperature - ranging from 30°C to 40°C- is extremely conducive. After which, the dried cells are processed using a proprietary technology to crack the cell wall thus enhancing the digestibility and bioavailability of this product.
Research studies revealed that high doses of Chlorella has been found to be very effective in eliminating heavy metals from the body - brain, intestinal wall, muscles, ligaments, connective tissue, and bone.
Chlorella contains a unique complex called Chlorella Growth Factor, located in the nucleus of the cell and is composed of nucleic acids, peptides and polysaccharides. Nucleic acids are essential for the survival of all living things. The amount of nucleic acids in the body decreases with age and causes not only premature aging but also weakens the immune system. Since DNA damage is one of the critical factors that trigger aging, introducing anti-aging compounds with strong antioxidant properties will improve physiological function of cells and promote longevity.
Research studies indicate that Chlorella Vulgaris significantly reduces DNA damage in all age groups by quenching the reactive ROS and free radicals from attacking the DNA. Also, CGF in Chlorella has remarkable ability to repair damaged cells and tissues and stimulate the growth of healthy cells due to its high nucleic acid content and assists in the repair of damaged genetic material in human cells.
