What is Chlorella?
Chlorella is a member of eukaryotic organism (true nucleus plant), which has been on earth since the pre-Cambrian period over 2 billion years ago. Chlorella is not a sexually reproducible plant but unicellular, freshwater green alga, which divides itself so rapidly into four times in every 20 to 24 hours. (According to the latest gene analysis of Chlorella, it was 540 million years ago that Chlorella and Chlamydomonas diverged from a common ancestor.)

Chlorella is so tiny with 3 to 8 micrometers in diameter that appeared before the public only at the end of 19th century. At that time, Chlorella was named after "chlor" which means green in Greek and "ella" which means a small thing in Latin.

For a long period of time, Chlorella has survived every convulsion of nature because its tough outer cell wall protects its genetic integrity and its rapid reproductive ability. Oxygen exists on earth was generated from sunshine, water, and carbonic acid gas that algae like Chlorella produced with their highly photosynthetic capacities. In the meantime, Chlorella produces various fundamental nutrients that are needed for many organisms generated in later period to support their lives.

With its capacity for photosynthesis which is several tens of times higher than that of other plants, Chlorella produces an amazingly large amount of proteins that are about 38 times that of soy beans and about 55 times that of rice. Another characteristic is its copious yet well-balanced amounts of nine essential amino acids as well as vitamins and minerals.
