And the world's most nutrient dense food is...

In a world of superfoods, chlorella is no Cinderella. This vibrant green algae is one of the world's most nutrient dense foods.

Containing more of the phytonutrient chlorophyll per gram than any other plant, it also boasts the highest levels of dietary nucleic acids, and is composed of a whopping 60% protein. 

Chlorella is one of the planet's most ancient life forms, remaining virtually unchanged in the past 2 billion years. Unique in its ability to reproduce eight times a day, fear not, this is a sustainable nutrient source. Hailing from Japan and Taiwan, this fresh water algae is a close cousin to Spirulina.

While we love leafy greens, their benefits pale in comparison to super nutritious chlorella.

Nucleic acids, amino acids, lipids, vitamin A and vitamin C provide the nutrients required for skin regeneration -helping you keep a youthful appearance by rejuvenating and healing your body.

Chlorella works like a probiotic, generating good bacteria that heals digestive problems and boosts your immune system.

Chlorella balances the body. It's an alkaliser, helping return the body to its natural pH. It is a powerful detoxer, reducing the build up of heavy metals like lead and mercury. Chrorella also cleanses the liver, purifies blood, and lowers blood pressure and cholesterol.

This transformative green whole food boosts energy levels, balances hormone health, and even assists with weight loss.

If you're struggling to eat enough leafy greens and get the recommended 5-7 portions day, this could be the antidote you're looking for.

You'll find this fairy godmother of superfoods in our new juice The Antidote. Make your day more vibrant, b adding a spoonful in your favourite smoothie. Why not try it with the sweet Sinner or make that Mango Green even more vividly green?
