About Our Chlorella
There are two common species of chlorella: Chlorella pyrenoidosa and Chlorella vulgaris. We only use Chlorellapyrenoidosa in our Emerald Energy® formulas because it is much more nutritious. The cell walls of this species are much tougher, however, than the less nutritious (and less expensive) Chlorella vulgaris. But through a special technique during the drying process, the cell walls of our Chlorella pyrenoidosa are gently broken open without damaging the dense nutrients inside. This “cracked cell” method is key to allowing the body to get the maximum nutritional benefit out of the Chlorella.
