The Original Green SuperFood

 

Chlorella & Spirulina – The Perfect SuperFood Duo

Better together. Naturally.

Some foods just naturally belong together. So what can be better than combining two of the world’s most popular and beloved green energizers together into one super powerful, super convenient SuperFood duo? That’s exactly what we did at Prairie Naturals when we created our new Aqua Greens, an equal ratio blend of our organic chlorella and organic spirulina powders.

What is Chlorella & what does it do?

Chlorella (Chlorella vulgaris) is one of the most ancient food plants known on earth. As single-celled fresh-water micro algae, chlorella floats on the water’s surface soaking up sunshine and converting it into green energy power cells!

Chlorella contains the highest concentration of chlorophyll (a potent green pigment) of any plant on earth. Along with chlorophyll, chlorella contains concentrated levels of protein (with all the essential amino acids) and essential fats, along with complex carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins and minerals including antioxidants, carotenoids (especially lutein) and nucleic acids.

Researchers in Japan and Korea are finding that chlorella intake has a positive effect on blood cholesterol, blood sugar and appetite control. Studies also show that chlorella also has the power to remove toxins from the body.

Prairie Naturals Chlorella undergoes a special procedure that breaks open (but does not remove) the indigestible cell wall and allows access to its many concentrated nutrients. This indigestible fibre is retained as a natural prebiotic that promotes probiotic activity in the intestinal tract.

What is Spirulina & what does it do?

Spirulina, (Spirulina platensis), commonly called “blue-green algae,” is another ancient superfood plant. Spirulina gets its green colour from chlorophyll and its blue hues from naturally-occurring phycocyanin pigment. As many as 10 carotenoid pigments including orange carotenes, alpha, beta, gamma and yellow xanthophylls and zeaxanthin are also embedded on this amazing superfood. All of these pigments act as disease preventing antioxidants.

Spirulina contains an impressive 70% protein content! This lean and green protein source is also a natural source of minerals, including iron, calcium, and magnesium. High levels of B12 and plant-based protein make it an especially perfect addition to vegetarian and vegan diets. Like chlorella, spirulina contains all the essential amino acids and essential fats, along with complex carbohydrates, fibre, a wide range of vitamins and minerals including antioxidants, carotenoids and nucleic acids.

Researchers have found that spirulina intake reduces blood cholesterol and inflammation. Regular supplementation with spirulina also removes accumulated toxins in the body, creating a gentle and safe daily cleansing effect.

Organic Fermented Wheatgrass

Fermented green supplements like fermented wheatgrass is now readily available to add to your daily intake. The fresh-cut blades of organic wheatgrass or barley grass are naturally cultured with probiotics like Lactobacillus plantarum and Saccaromyces boulardii on a molasses matrix and fermented for several days. This type of natural fermentation process enhances and transforms the naturally occurring nutrients in the wheatgrass to more readily absorbed forms. Fermented greens deliver a refreshingly green taste experience that includes the natural juice and fibre from the fresh leaves of these plants.

Fermented wheatgrass is a concentrated source of readily assimilated chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes, is pleasant-tasting and is the perfect addition to smoothies, salad dressings and sauces! Rich with health-promoting probiotic bacteria; organic wheatgrass is easily digested and will support bowel regularity and overall good health.

It is important to note, that when selecting a fermented wheatgrass or greens product to choose products that are organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free. Use only pure, fermented food powders that contain no flavours, colours, preservatives, sweeteners, or fillers.

Increasing your intake of fermented foods is a simple way to support your overall health and well-bring.
