Chlorella (Chlorella pyrenoidosa) is a single-celled edible species of algae grown in fresh water. Although you might be tempted to simply harvest this important alga in your backyard, the structure of chlorella makes this form of intake less beneficial. Due to the high cell wall in chlorella, factory processing is required to better access the nutrients. Organika®'s Chlorella Tablets provides 500 mg ofChlorella pyrenoidosa, which supplies vitamin A and 500 mcg of Beta-Carotene for the maintenance of good health.
The benefits of vitamin A, as noted by Health Canada, include the maintenance of eyesight, skin, membranes and immune function as well as the development and maintenance of night vision, bones and teeth.
Carotenoids are a class of compounds related to vitamin A. One such carotenoid is beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the liver. Health Canada recommends that adult males (18 years and older) have an intake of 5400 mcg of beta-carotene while adult females (18 years and older) should consume 4200 mcg of beta-carotene daily. Supplement your intake by taking one tablet three times daily. Enjoy a convenient daily source of vitamin A with Organika®'s Chlorella Tablets.
