What is Yaeyama Chlorella?

If you’re someone who is interested in health and nutrition, chances are you’ve heard of Chlorella, but what is it really all about? Well, although it may not be as simple as a one-word answer, the team here at This Health are passionate about the benefits of Yaeyama Chlorella and we want you to reap the benefits.

Yaeyama Chlorella is a single-celled micro-algae which is grown naturally in the sun-drenched sub-tropical climate of Ishigaki Island, located at the southern tip of the Japanese archipelago. It is cultivated in huge outdoor pools using only the suns natural energy and freshwater. This fantastic little gem is a type of phytoplankton meaning it creates its own energy from sunlight by using the green photosynthetic pigment chlorophyll. Our yaeyama Chlorella is easily digested and absorbed because of broken cell wall preparations.

Having first evolved around 2 billion years ago, it was only identified by a Dutch scientist in the 1800’s. By the 1900’s it was put under research to see if it was a suitable source of nutrition, and throughout the years it has become a steady source of nutrition which is today grown in countries across the world.
