FAQ

Q1. What is chlorella?
Chlorella is a green single cell fresh water algae and it has survived 540 million years. It is a first known form of plant life with a true nucleus. Chlorella is so small with 3 to 8 micrometers in diameter, and every 20 to 24 hours it divides four times. Throughout its two-billion-year history on this planet, chlorella has survived every convulsion of nature because of its tough outer cell wall protecting its generics integrity and its rapid reproductive ability. Chlorella is a well balanced food that contains all the nutrients that is essential for our health.
Q2. Why should I take chlorella?
Chlorella contains a wide variety of nutrients that are important in maintaining human health. It also provides many trace minerals and other factors whose role in human nutrition has yet to be discovered. In light of the stresses placed on our bodies by our fast-paced lifestyles and polluted environment, chlorella may well be considered daily health insurance.
Chlorella has more than 20 different vitamins and minerals including:
  • Beta-carotene, which has been said to help combat damage from ultraviolet radiation and the stress of pollution on the lungs.
  • Vitamin A, which may help fight off illness and maintain a strong immune system.
  • 60 percent protein
  • RNA, DNA, and chlorophyll - chlorella is one of the highest natural sources of these factors.
  • More vitamin B12 than beef liver.
  • Iron, iodine, zinc and lysine, etc
Q3. What is the difference between Sun Chlorella and other chlorella?
Sun Chlorella has a 50-year history in Japan. It has aimed to manufacture the best quality products since the establishment. For example, we use chlorella pyrenoidosa, the most nutritious of chlorella plant strains. It is cultured outdoors to absorb energy from the natural sunlight and pulverized its cell wall by using the unique patent technology (DYNO-Mill) to improve digestive absorption ratio (up to 90%). The processed without heat or chemicals, keeping chlorella’s nutrients intact. We strictly control the entire production process from raw material to finished product in order to offer high quality products.
Q4. What is C.G.F?
Chlorella Growth Factor (C.G.F.) is a phytonutrient derived from chlorella and has an action to revitalize weaken cells. It can only be found in chlorella.
Q5. How does chlorella work?
The synergistic effect of the many nutrients contained in chlorella is one of balancing and stabilizing the body processes at the cellular level. The cleaning and revitalization of tissues which occur as a result of daily chlorella intake can be likened to a “tune up” for the body, helping if function at its optimum capacity.
Q6. Is chlorella good for body building?
Absolutely! The nucleic acids in chlorella have enabled this plant to rapidly reproduce and rejuvenate its own cells. When we take chlorella, we tare taking the nucleic acids that are responsible for this rapid cellular reproduction along with all of the supplemental nutrients required for chlorella’s reproductive growth and maintenance of its life cycle. Nucleic acids regulate the production of the body’s enzymes, protein and enzymes. Plus, chlorella is low in calories and sodium, so it fits right in with today’s body builders and their lighter lifestyles.
Q7. Can chlorella be taken during pregnancy and lactation?
A woman's nutritional status during pregnancy and breastfeeding is not only critical for her health, but also for that of future generations. Taking chlorella supplements during pregnancy may decrease dioxin content and increase the concentration of some carotenes and immunoglobulin A in breast milk.

Folate which is highly contained in chlorella is essentially important nutrition for pregnant women and infants. The Japanese Ministry of health and welfare recommends taking folate through supplements for pregnant women because pregnant women need folate more than double before and during pregnancy.  Sun Chlorella A contains not only folate but also iron and vitamin D which are necessary for pregnant women. We highly recommend Sun Chlorella A to pregnant women and your coming baby.
Q8. Is Sun Chlorella good for children? How to take?
Yes, it is. Sun Chlorella products are not medicine, so everyone can take safely. Recently, we can eat as much food as we want in Japan, therefore, not only adults but also children have an unbalanced diet. Unbalanced diet from childhood may cause some health problems. That’s why we positively recommend taking Sun Chlorella A for children as support of diet.

After mother stops breastfeeding, they can mix natural chlorella powder into their milk/porridge to feed their babies. Children starting from the age of two and can eat according to their age. For example, four tablets for 4 years old and 15 tablets until the age of 12 and up.
Q9. What is the difference between chlorella tablets and W Sun Gold Liquid? Can we take both in the same time?

Chlorella tablet has all the elements (mineral, vitamins, etc) possessed by chlorella with 5% of C.G.F. The W Sun Gold liquid contains rich C.G.F. (70%) for ease of absorption and utilization by the body. It is good for those who need to regain their vitality quickly. It is best taken together with Sun Chlorella tablets.

Q10. What kind of people should take the Sun Chlorella products?
For all ages people who do not like vegetables, have an irregular eating habit, want to take vitamins and minerals, and maintain and enhance health.
Q11. When should I take Sun Chlorella products?

According to US FDA information, chlorella is a safe food, which means that for most people, eating chlorella is very safe and has no obvious adverse reactions. However, do not use it in combination with anticoagulants (because chlorella is rich in vitamin K, which can promote the coagulation reaction, so it may weaken the effect of drugs)

Q18. What different between chlorella and spirulina?
Chlorella contains a true nucleus, while spirulina does not- and this is a major difference when it comes to promoting your cellular health.

Chlorella is a single-celled fresh water alga. In contrast, spirulina contains multiple cells and can easily to get it from sea water. Chlorella belongs to trebouxiophyceae, a class of green algae in the division Chlorophyta. It is a superior source of the antioxidant chlorophyll, compared to spirulina. Spirulina belongs to cyanobacteria, which is a family of single-celled microbes often referred to as blue-green algae.
