Dubbed the Green Gem of the Orient, Chlorella is one of the oldest forms of plant life known to man. Discovered in 1890 by Microbiologist, M.W. Beijerinck, following its discovery, Chlorella piqued the interest of researchers, spurring decades of research to understand its beneficial characteristics. It was the Japanese who first realized this single-celled fresh water algae as a functional whole food with medicinal purposes. Its chlorophyll content and nutrient rich properties was found to be potent enough to support the metabolism of an adult male, making it ideal as a food for astronauts during space travel.
Chlorella was also looked at as a possible primary food source and solution to nutrition in the post WW II era, so researchers began developing it in mass quantities. The Japanese researchers found a way to permeate the tough outer cell wall to access the rich nutrients inside making it one of the top health food supplements in Japan.
Fast forward to Chlorella’s current popularity, it is viewed as a powerful superfood making huge waves in the health industry.
