Sun Chlorella USA, Company Profile

Futoshi Nakayama, President & CEOSun Chlorella’s story starts with one man’s story of survival against all odds. Founder Hideo Nakayama used the nutritional power of chlorella to regain his health and live a good long life of 85 years. This is despite his doctor’s warning that he wouldn’t live past 60.

You can read his story as part of the company history

Since our Japan headquarters founding in 1969, and the U.S. Operations inception in 1982, Sun Chlorella has had a simple mission – to bring the life-affirming, nourishing nutrition of chlorella to as many people as possible.

More and more, the medical profession is discovering that nothing can replace good nutrition. As pioneering nutritionist and chlorella researcher, Dr. Bernard Jensen wrote in his book, Chlorella: Gem of the Orient,

"I believe that we are always working our way either toward health or toward disease by what we do with our bodies (and minds) and by what we put into them. There is no middle ground. If we aren’t building ourselves up, we are tearing ourselves down. If you aren’t living right, doctors will soon be making their living from your way of living."

- Dr. Bernard Jensen, Chlorella: Gem of the Orient

Our bodies depend on good nutrition to build tissue… manufacture hormones, neurotransmitters and enzymes… and energize our metabolic processes.

When we take in poor nutrition, we cheat our bodies – and ourselves – from living a full life.

When we give ourselves the best nutrition nature offers, we give ourselves the capacity to live life at its fullest.


Chlorella Nourishes Life

As Mr. Nakayama pointed out,

"Health is not a ‘gift’. But something each person is responsible for through his or her daily effort."

Chlorella makes it easier to heed this advice. These tiny green algae offer one of the richest nutritional packages available on this earth. A nutrient-dense whole food, chlorella gives your body the nourishment it needs for strength and wellness.

In today’s world where conventional farming practices and food processing have depleted our food’s nutritional value…

Where our busy lives leave little time for careful, nurturing food preparation…

Chlorella fills a nutritional void.
