About ChlorellaChlorella is a single celled fresh water green algae. The name Chlorella derives from two Latin words meaning "leaf" and "small" referring to the unusually high content of chlorophyll which gives chlorella its characteristic deep emerald-green color. Chlorella contains the highest levels of nucleic acids (RNA and DNA) among foods, including the unique nucleotide-peptide complex known as chlorella growth factor approximately 5%. Chlorella helps build the immune system by stimulating the activity of macrophages and T-cells by increasing interferon levels thus supporting the immune system.What does the term Cracked Cell or Broken Cell mean? The cell walls have been broken to increase digestibility as the nutrient availability of the Chlorella.
