Organic Cracked-Cell Chlorella Powder (Raw)


Chlorella is one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet, and our Raw Cracked-Cell Chlorella Powder is packed with 20 bioavailable nutrients that cleanse, energize, and heal the body.  You will hard pressed to find a richer source of chlorophyll than our Chlorella Powder.  Just one teaspoon of the emerald green powder contains five times more chlorophyll than wheat grass, 12 times more than barley grass, and 10 times more than alfalfa.

A Micro-Algae Brimming with Life

Our Raw Cracked-Cell Chlorella Powder comes from single-celled fresh water algae that are grown in a pristine environment, far away from human pollution. Each chlorella cell is a self-sustaining micro-organism brimming with life and unique health properties that are rarely seen in one food source.

Chlorella contains an extremely high concentration of nutrients that promote good overall health. Our Raw Cracked-Cell Chlorella Powder is a natural source of 20 bio-available vitamins and minerals, including chlorophyll, protein, and beta-carotene, which acts as an antioxidant to fight free radicals that enter the body. Our Chlorella Powder contains 19 amino acids that are vital for healthy tissue and cell regeneration.

Vegans and vegetarians love our Raw Cracked-Cell Chlorella Powder because it is rich in B Vitamins, especially Vitamin B12, which is extremely rare in plant-based foods. Our Chlorella Powder is also a great source of protein, with a composition of approximately 60% protein.

The Cleansing Power of Chlorella

One of the most incredible properties of our Raw Cracked-Cell Chlorella Powder is that it acts as a full-body detoxification agent, promoting cleansing of heavy metals and toxins from the liver, kidneys, blood, and digestive tract. Chlorella is known as an effective bowel cleanser and natural deodorant for fresh breath.

Our Raw Cracked-Cell Chlorella Powder contains one of the highest levels of chlorophyll available in a natural food source. Chlorophyll has a chemical structure similar to the hemoglobin in our blood and it helps to carry oxygen throughout the blood stream and increase red blood cell count. Our Chlorella Powder has five times more chlorophyll, or “green plant blood,” than wheat grass, 12 times more than barley grass, and 10 times more than alfalfa.

A True Superfood

Our Raw Cracked-Cell Chlorella Powder is a broad-spectrum superfood, assisting in wound healing, digestion, and cell growth. Chlorella contains more fatty acids than Spirulina, which is critical for good heart function. Our Raw Cracked-Cell Chlorella Powder is packed with phytonutrients to assist in normal cell growth and repair. It also acts as food for “good” bacteria in the intestinal tract, which leads to easy and healthy digestion.


The cell wall surrounding chlorella is indigestible, so it needs to be broken in order for you to get the benefits of its nutrients. Chlorella that has gone through a unique process that breaks open the plant's cell wall and unlocks chlorella's nutritional bounty is called cracked-cell or broken-cell. The cracked-cell chlorella provides optimal bioavailability, so you can absorb and digest chlorella's nutrients at high levels. In fact, an independent study showed the digestibility of broken cell wall chlorella to be an astounding 83%.

Storage Instructions

If cared for properly, our Chlorella Powder has a shelf life of two to three years. To preserve the freshness of this product:

  • Avoid exposure to heat. The powder will remain fresh if stored at room temperature or below.
  • Avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
  • Squeeze all of the air out of the bag before sealing.
  • Seal the bag tightly after each use.
  • Store the powder in a dry place, and avoid all contact with moisture.


We package all of our superfood powders in all-natural brown kraft bags, each with a resealable zipper across the top. Each bag has a thin metal lining, which serves as a very effective barrier to light, oxygen, odors, flavors, moisture, and bacteria.

While printed plastic bags with clear windows may look beautiful, studies have shown that the toxins contained in the plastic are absorbed by food that is in direct contact with the plastic. Foods that are raw and all-natural, like superfood powders, are even more susceptible to this type of contamination than processed foods.
