Pure Planet Chlorella Anti-Aging Green Food 200 mg. - 600 Tablet(s)Pure Planet Chlorella Anti-Aging Green Food 200 mg. cracked-cell chlorella is cultivated in a controlled outdoor environment in ponds filled with mineral-rich water. Chlorella is the fastest reproducing single cell in nature and contain RNA (genetic information) that strengthens and protects cells during replication. Perhaps natures most intensely studied food; chlorella also helps break down the heavy metals and toxins such as PCBs, DDT, mercury, cadmium and lead. Chlorella is also natures richest source of chlorophyll containing up to 2-3 times more than other algaes and grasses. Their cracked-cell chlorella delivers the benefits of chlorella in easily digested powder and tablets. Can aid in the elimination of heavy metals. Helps prevent oxidative damage that causes premature aging. May support natural detoxification. Is nature's richest whole-food source of chlorophyll. Has a digestibility rate of over 80%. Chlorella - HistoryChlorella is a microscopic organism, and though it was not discovered until 1890, it has existed for two and a half billion years. In 1890, research by Professor M.W. Beijerinck verified chlorella to be safe and suitable for eating. In 1917, Dr. Lindner, a German microbiologist proposed the idea of making food from chlorella. Dr. Lindner's work was motivated by the shortage of food in Germany during World War I. When the war was over, Dr. Lindner discontinued his research. However, one of his associates, Dr. Hardner, a German scientist continued Dr. Lindner's work and finally another scientists, Dr. Kuick, later complete it in 1948. In 1948, U.S. scientists continued the research started by the German researchers. A pilot study conducted at Stanford Research Institute showed that chlorella could be continuously grown and harvested in large quantities. A pilot plant was late built by Arthur D. Little, Inc. with sponsorship from the Carnegie Institute.
