Choosing Between The Different Brands Of Chlorella
Chlorella is an organism that many of us have now heard of. It’s a single celled algae that’s part of the blue/green family of algae and it’s loaded with benefits. Before modern times, chlorella’s nutrients weren’t very accessible to the human body. This is due to the hard outer cell wall surrounding each chlorella algae cell. This thick cell wall kept the body from being able to access all of the wonderful nutrients locked away inside the chlorella cell. But in modern times, methods have been discovered that allow manufacturers to actually crack the cell wall of the chlorella algae, giving us access to the nutrients locked within, nutrients like chlorophyll and trace minerals and vitamins that aren’t readily present in the modern diet. But this “cracking” of the cell wall of the chlorella algae can pose a few problems. So finding a brand of chlorella that’s safe and has a high quality control standard is key. There are a lot of makers of chlorella out there, and not all of them have the same quality standards.

Processing chlorella in such a way that the nutrients and nutritional value of the cell is kept intact can be a somewhat difficult task. Since a cell is very small, it can be difficult to damage one part of the cell without damaging the rest of the cell. The nutrients inside the chlorella cell wouldn’t really be all that useful to the body if, during the process, they were contaminated, or if they were damaged, destroyed, or rendered useless because the process was too powerful. So finding a manufacturing process that’s both powerful enough to destroy the outer cell wall, yet gentle enough to keep the rest of the nutrients intact is what you’re really after. Many manufacturers use sound vibrations to accomplish this task. Sometimes referred to as ultrasonic, they’ll target the chlorella with a specific sound frequency which is able to crack the cell wall, but doesn’t damage the other nutrients present within the cell. More than one method exists that manufacturers use to crack or pulverize the cell wall of the chlorella cell, so it might be a good idea for you to do a bit of research before you decide on a brand to buy.
But what about the other dangers inherent to chlorella processing. It’s a general rule that foods closest to their natural state are generally safer and more useful to the body. The more something is processed, the less useful it generally is to the body. Because of the growing, harvesting, and manufacturing process surrounding chlorella, the powder is somewhat more susceptible to contamination than many other health powders out there, especially since the cellular structure of the chlorella has been made vulnerable. In years past, chlorella algae has been shown to experience contamination that happens during one or more stages of its processing. This is why, when you’re buying chlorella, it’s a very good idea to do some research to find out if the brand you’re wanting to buy uses high quality control standards that have been proven over a period of time. There are many manufacturers of bulk chlorella in the world, so you need to be somewhat careful about which brand you intend to purchase. For one thing, it’s easy for companies to hide fillers inside their powders, and in the past, not all manufacturers have had high quality control standards. So be careful.
