Odoo CMS - a big picture

You’ve heard of the superfood chlorella for it’s amazing health benefits: supporting your natural immune system, and providing a variety of helpful nutrients to your body. You already know chlorella as a plant cannot be optimally digested by humans unless the cell wall is processed (make sure to pick a pulverized cell wall chlorella over broken/cracked cell wall!), and that chlorella is available in many forms like tablets, granules, powders, liquids, and even noodles. But did you know that chlorella may be the missing ingredient from your beauty routine?


With the many vitamins, minerals, and nucleic acids within chlorella, this superfood is positioned to affect you externally as well as internally. Chlorella could benefit your hair health and skin health! 


Chlorella is slowly becoming more and more recognized for its beauty benefits. Some cosmetic companies are now adding this helpful algae into their formulas to provide consumers with its incredible benefits. But you don’t have to go scouring for the right product to get you the results you are looking for. Sun Chlorella has chlorella supplements to cover the health benefits you need.


 Hair

Chlorella contains nucleic acids, vitamin B12, chlorophyll and iron which all play a part in the health of your hair. Whether you are looking for more shine, thicker strength, or longer locks, the health of your hair on a cellular level is the foundation to your hair goals. 


One of the main nutrients tossed around for hair health is biotin. But along with biotin, all B vitamins, including the active B12 found in chlorella, can also promote cellular health that can improve the look and feel of hair. A main ingredient in hair health is strong hair follicles that receive regular, fresh blood flow. This blood flow provides nutrients that allow for healthy hair growth. And B vitamins, including B12, help create red blood cells, which carry oxygen and nutrients in the blood to places like the scalp and hair follicles. Long story short, B vitamins provide important benefits for hair growth and chlorella provides B12. Chlorella is also one of the only plant sources of a highly absorbable type of B12, or Active B12, making it extra great for vegetarians or vegans who have a hard time sourcing a bioavailable form of this vitamin elsewhere.


Just like B vitamins, iron helps by supporting to the creation of hemoglobin, which may also oxygenate blood. Hemoglobin helps in the growth and repair of cells, keeping things renewed from the inside, so the cells can focus on strengthening the outside. Iron helps with overall cell health, which includes the hair follicles responsible for what grows on your head. Sun chlorella is a good source of iron because it provides you with 28% of your daily value (per 3 gram serving). 


Unique to everyday vitamins and minerals, this freshwater algae offers chlorophyll, more so than most plants. Chlorophyll can help support the immune system and the body’s natural waste elimination process. It aids in finding unwanted substance in your body, and getting rid of it. Supporting the body in the functions it must perform leaves the body more energy to use elsewhere, like in your hair growth. Your body needs its critical needs met before it can worry about less critical aspects.


Nucleic acids are another important aspect of your health. The nucleic acids from Chlorella Growth Factor is an essential element of the body utilizing RNA and DNA, including renewing and revitalizing cells to create younger-looking skin and healthier-looking hair. Nucleic acid supports cellular regeneration and can be found in chlorella.


Adding chlorella supplements to your everyday life can increase the health of your cells and give you healthier-looking hair. Hair and hair follicles need regular nutrients to stay stable, and Sun Chlorella provides useful nutrients in a convenient supplement. Don’t miss out on the many perks this superfood has to offer.


Skin

Just like hair, skin does more than just look pretty. The skin on your body is actually your largest organ, and for good reason. Skin not only helps to regulate body temperature, similar to hair, but does it on a larger scale. After all, you have more skin than hair. Your skin also acts as the collector of sunlight for Vitamin D, an important nutrient for many functions. Along with receiving nutrients, the skin acts as a protection to the body against many outside irritants. From keeping bacteria outside the body, to mitigating the effects of harmful UV rays, the skin provides security. So, nourishing the skin and allowing it to fulfill its responsibilities should be an important part of your life. Luckily, chlorella can help with this by providing nutrients that benefit and support the health of your cells.


In addition to supporting hair health, the vitamin D, nucleic acid, vitamin B12 and chlorophyll found in chlorella can also play a part in the health of your skin. 


The nucleic acids in chlorella can aid your skin as much as your hair. By supporting RNA and DNA to do their innate jobs within the cell, you may be able to improve your skin health. RNA and DNA act like the cell doctor, helping to repair damage and strengthen systems moving forward. The nucleic acids from Chlorella Growth Factor aid the body in supporting in cellular regeneration.


Along with the nucleic acids from Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), vitamin D plays a role in the life cycle of cells. The body actually produces this important vitamin, but only after stimulation from sunlight. By adding chlorella to your diet, you can aid your body in receiving the vitamin D it needs. This can be especially useful to those whose geography only allows for small windows of sunlight during certain seasons. A 3 gram serving of Sun chlorella gives you an amazing 135% of your daily value of Vitamin D!


Just like with hair health, the chlorophyll found in chlorella allows the body to better focus on the jobs it must do. With more chlorophyll per gram than most plants, chlorella is an amazing source of this plant-based helper. Chlorophyll assists the body in its immune system defenses and ability to eliminate unwanted substance. Supporting the body’s routine tasks leaves more energy available for less-crucial processes, like solidifying healthier-looking skin. 


Beyond chlorella supplements, you can take advantage of Sun Chlorella application products, such as Sun Chlorella Cream and Astarella Primetime Skin Cream. Sun Chlorella skin care products are one of the first skin creams made with Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), one of the richest sources of nucleic acids. This makes it an exceptional ingredient for natural skin care needs. By adding these products to your chlorella regime, you can take advantage of the benefits of chlorella, inside and out.


Overall, chlorella is nature’s finest supplement for health and wellness. From the immune system inside your body to the hair and skin health, Sun Chlorella wants to help you become you the best possible version of yourself. Check         out Sun Chlorella’s products for both supplement intake and external application.
