Dear Friends

Did you know that the Chlorophyll in Chlorella activates Coenzyme Q10 to enhance cellular energy with the help of a little sunshine?

This is the power of the greenest of green foods, and BioImmersion’s new Organic Chlorella contains even more Chlorophyll per gram.

Protocol for enhancing our energy levels:

Food Science

Chlorella is the greenest of all plants.  This unicellular green algae contains more of the green pigment chlorophyll than any plant in the world- 10 times more per gram than alfalfa.

Chlorophyll is the most ubiquitous pigment in nature, responsible for capturing the life giving energy from sunlight.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a ubiquitous molecule found in every cell of the body; hence its scientific name—Ubiquinol.  It is a vital participant in the chain of metabolic chemical reactions that generate ATP energy within our cells.

How does Chlorella generate more energy in our body?

CoQ10 exists in two forms:  ubiquinol and ubiquinone. Ubiquinol is CoQ10’s active form, able to do its antioxidant, energy enhancing work; and Ubiquinone is it oxidized spent form, that needs to be brought back to its reduced state Ubiquinol to do more cellular work.

When we consume lots of green plants our blood levels of chlorophyll increases.  Bachem’s research back in 1931 showed that sunlight can penetrate through the skin.  Qu et al. (2013) showed that chlorophyll coursing through our skin can capture the sunlight’s energy, resulting in catalyzing the photoreduction of plasma ubiquinone back to ubiquinol.

This means that consuming the chlorophyll in greens enables our body to recharge CoQ10 with a little sunshine, which increases our ATP cellular production resulting in more cellular energy (Xu, 2014).  Just another reason why Chlorella is one of the most powerful food to consider for supplementation of our diet.
