Chlorella is a unique single-celled fresh water green algae. Chlorella's single-cell structure is the key to its uniquely varied and concentrated supply of vitamins, minerals, protein and other nutrients. Because chlorella is a pure, whole food, these nutrients are in the form and balance that nature intended. Chlorella contains amino acids (protein), enzymes (including pepsin for digestion), vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates. It contains over 18% Chlorella Growth Factor, high in RNA and DNA, the building blocks of life. Up to 10% of chlorella can be RNA, while DNA levels can be as high as 3%.
3 capsules daily with meals or as directed.

Chlorella Caps also contain vitamin K and for this reason caution should be exercised when using this product with patients who are on prescribed blood-thinning agents.
