[Frequently Asked Questions About Sun Chlorella]


A true superfood, Chlorella contains a wealth of vitamins and minerals, amino acids, protein, fiber, nucleic acids and more chlorophyll than any organism on earth.  Several different brands are available including Sun Chlorella A and Yaeyama Chlorella.  Chlorella is one of the oldest forms of life on earth – some two billion years old.  Chlorella is a single-celled, fresh-water green algae. 

Chlorella is the best-selling health supplement in Japan, where its extraordinary powers have long been studied.  Many scientific studies now document chlorella’s ability to help:

  • Boost your energy levels
  • Supercharge your immune system
  • Remove toxins from your body
  • Promote brain wellness and fend off memory loss
  • Support proper digestion
  • Promote joint and muscle health
  • Protect your heart and maintain healthy levels of blood pressure and cholesterol
  • Support good health as you age

Chlorella's Nutrient Content

Chlorella is in effect a super-efficient “living factory” that produces within itself an amazing abundance of all-important nutrients. 

  • Chlorella is over 60% pure protein by weight, and is particularly rich in essential amino acids like L-lysine and L-Phenylalanine, which are poorly represented in vegetarian diets.
  • Chlorella is extremely rich in Chlorophyll, the green plant pigment considered by many natural health practitioners to be a versatile detoxifier and colon cleanser.  Chlorella averages 2˝ percent Chlorophyll (compared to 0.76% for Spirulina and only 0.2% for Alfalfa). 
  • Chlorella is a rich source of the Branched Chain Amino Acids – L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, & L-Valine – utilized by many athletes for maximum muscle building, repair, and energy.
  • Chlorella contains RNA and DNA – the nucleic acids governing cell growth, reproduction, and repair – at a level 17 times higher than the sardine, the previous “king” of high RNA/DNA foods. 
  • Chlorella’s unique CGF (Chlorella Growth Factor) has been shown in published scientific research to be powerful in promoting rapid, healthy growth in children and animals.

A Treasure-House of Micro-Nutrients

Chlorella is also a rich storehouse of many essential nutrients needed for optimum health, including over 20 vitamins and minerals.  Chlorella is a very rich source of Iron: three grams of Chlorella (only 13 calories’ worth) provide 5 mg of Iron (compared to 6 mg Iron coming from 1000 calories of the typical American diet!)  Three grams of Chlorella also provides 2.2 mg of Zinc (like Iron, its USRDA is 15 mg). 

Chlorella also is one of the few vegetarian foods containing lots of Vitamin B-12, so important for nerve health, red blood cell formation, and energy production (3 grams Chlorella give us over 100% the RDA for vitamin B-12).  Chlorella is a good source of natural Beta Carotene, the plant Vitamin A precursor and a potent antioxidant (3 grams Chlorella giving almost half of our Vitamin A RDA). 

Chlorella Detoxifying Action

To make Chlorella more thoroughly digestible, the various manufacturers assure that the tough outer cell wall of the Chlorella is broken down.  The various patented processes allow the nutrient-rich cellular contents to be completely assimilated in the human body. 

This cell wall fragmenting produces additional bonuses.  In Japan there is widespread concern over low-level chemical, heavy metal, and radioactive poisoning.  Pioneering Chlorella research there has found powerful detoxifying action of the cell wall fragments.  Various polysaccharide compounds in the cell wall fragments have been shown to combine with a broad range of toxins, including the toxic heavy metals mercury and cadmium, radioactive uranium, the pesticide chlordecone, and the toxic herbicide dioxin, and PCBs.  Once these poisons are combined with the cell wall fragments of Chlorella, they are rendered non-absorbable by the body and are harmlessly excreted through bowel movements.

Chlorella as a Source of Dietary Fiber

Chlorella may offer some protection against the growing burdens of air, water, food, and industrial pollution to which Americans are now subjected.  These same cell wall fragments also provide an excellent source of fiber, so deficient in fast food diets.  Chlorella fragments are also powerful stimulators of intestinal peristalsis, the rhythmic muscular contractions which move food and feces through the intestines.  In fact, some find Chlorella’s bowel-toning action so effective that they find it advisable to start with small doses and work up gradually to higher Chlorella intakes. 

Sun Chlorella A Brand

Sun Chlorella is significantly more digestible than competitors!  Not all chlorella are considered equal.  Here’s why: In order for your body to absorb the nutrients inside chlorella, its tough cell wall must be broken down.  Inferior brands use methods that attempt to break down the cell wall. Not only do they fail; they actually destroy much of the cell’s nutritional value. 

Only Sun Chlorella has the patented process utilizing the DYNO®-Mill machine.  Invented by the founder of Sun Chlorella, Hideo Nakayama, the Sun Chlorella DYNO®-Mill method thoroughly breaks down the cell wall while preserving the integrity of the nutrients inside.  The result: Sun Chlorella is over 80% digestible, unlike the other brands!

Yaeyama Brand

Yaeyama, a pioneer in chlorella cultivation, uses a special spray-dry process that breaks the chlorella cell wall, yet preserves the nutrients within.  Yaeyama ensures a highly digestible and nutrient-rich product. 

The Yaeyama company is known the world over for its 100% fresh-water chlorella, grown on the coral reef island of Ishigaki, Japan.  The special spray-dry process used by Yaeyama results in some of the highest quality, most digestible chlorella on the market. 

Yaeyama chlorella is rigorously tested by the Japanese government and independent laboratories – and it contains absolutely no added binders, fillers, or flow agents. 

Source Naturals Brand

Source Naturals imports its Chlorella from one of the original, major Oriental producers.  This manufacturer is one of the few which oversees all phases of the highly complex and technical Chlorella production process: from the selection and cultivation of the “mother cells’; through the pond-culturation phase; and to the final harvesting, cleaning, drying, and cell wall fragmenting stages. 

The care and attention to all production steps by our supplier, combined with Source Natural’s careful, high-quality tabletting (and very reasonable pricing), are persuasive reasons to let Source be your choice for Chlorella, the mighty micro-algae.
