What is it

Yaeyama Pacifica Chlorella is nutritionally superior

Selected over 40 years ago and grown continuously with a patented 'outdoor growing system', the Yaeyama Pacifica Chlorella strain is nutritionally superior, delivering higher levels of chlorophyll, Chlorella Grown Factor (CGF), protein, RNA, DNA and antioxidants, making it measurably the world's purest and most nutrient-rich Chlorella.

What is Chlorella?

Chlorella is an ancient single celled freshwater micro algae containing chlorophyll and many other useful phytonutrients. Thought to have had its genesis 2 billion years ago, chlorella is found naturally in freshwater rivers and waterways, but is now grown by aquaculture for human consumption.

Chlorella is unicellular which means each cell is self sufficient allowing it to perform all its functions inside itself. Each cell measures only 2.8 microns ( 1 micron = 1/1000th of a mm) about the size of a human red blood cell. Chlorella is so small that 1 litre of chlorella in a thin suspension contains over 20 billion cells.

Together with other photosynthetic micro-algae, Chlorella played an important role in converting the carbon dioxide rich atmosphere to oxygen through the process of photosynthesis. Micro-algae are largely responsible for converting the Earth's atmospheres 0.1% Oxygen, content to the 20% mix we have today, allowing all current organisms to thrive.

Commonly used as a nutritional supplement, Chlorella is nature’s nutritional powerhouse.

Chlorella Caution

Chlorella is a powerful detoxifying food, so when starting always take a smaller amount for the first week, with an adequate intake of pure water. It is possible some new users may not tolerate chlorella - in the event that you experience stomach upset or nausea when taking chlorella, either reduce the amount you are taking or stop taking chlorella completely and seek advice from your health care practitioner.  If pregnant, breastfeeding or taking medications, always consult your health care practitioner before starting on Chlorella.


There are some people who cannot tolerate chlorella and experience a strong allergic vomiting reaction after consuming it. This is extremely unusual and only affects a very small percentage of people. For this reason we always suggest starting off with a small serve and being cautious on day one and during the first week or so.

If you have this sort of strong reaction, stop taking the product, it's not for you. If the vomiting is intense and prolonged, seek medical help to avoid dehydration.


What are its health benefits



The most common use of Chlorella is as a nutritional supplement. As well as being rich in carotenoids and chlorophyll, Chlorella contains vitamin A, all the B's, C and E, and unlike synthetic forms found in multi-vitamin supplements – in their natural form, and without having to worry about dosage. Vitamins are however just the start, Chlorella is packed with minerals including potassium, magnesium, iron and calcium contains around 55% complete balanced protein.

All this explains why Chlorella is THE No.1 selling health supplement in Japan. Unlike the nutrients found in synthetic vitamin preparations, the Vitamins and minerals in whole-foods such as Chlorella are bound to natural food complexes are readily recognised and absorbed by your body.


It is now well accepted that it is beneficial to decrease our intake of acidic foods - such as meat, dairy and sugar, and increase our intake of alkalising foods such as leafy green vegetables, nuts, seeds & ..........Chlorella.

How does it work


At the heart of Chlorella's health benefits is its ability to naturally cleanse and detoxify.

There are several different pathways to detoxification;


Firstly, the fibrous indigestible outer shell has been proven to bind with heavy metals and pesticides to facilitate removal from the body. This hard cell wall is not removed in Yaeyama Chlorella but 'opened' by Water-jet spray technology to enable assimilation of the nutrients within. This fibrous material supports healthy digestion though the promotion of peristalsis and the encouragement of good intestinal bacteria.


Chlorella contains up to 5% chlorophyll, the largest amount in any plant. chlorophyll is a green pigment critical to photosynthesis allowing plants to create energy from sunlight. Chlorophyll is very similar to heme, the pigment in blood, only it has magnesium at its core not iron. This allows it to work at a molecular and cellular level binding to carcinogens in the organs and facilitating elimination.


The actual composition of Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) is still a mystery, research demonstrates that components of chlorella promote extraordinary tissue growth and repair. Among the components of CGF are amino acids, polypeptide Yaeyama Chlorella | POWERED BY s and nucleic acids (RNA/DNA)

How and where is it grown

Chlorella is an ancient single celled freshwater micro algae containing chlorophyll and many other useful phytonutrients. Thought to have had its genesis 2 billion years ago, chlorella is found naturally in freshwater rivers and waterways, but is now grown by aquaculture for human consumption.


When using plant based superfoods it is important to know that your are purchasing  a trustworthy product whose benefits are un-affected by pollution, destructive processing and poor packaging. We looked extensively at the different Chlorella available and soon realised the superiority of Yaeyama Pacifica.


The Yaeyama strain of Chlorella was originally found on Ishigaki Island where it is still grown today and is unique to Yaeyama Pacifica. Over forty years this strain has been improved to deliver excellent flavour and nutritional profile. Total carotenoid and RNA levels, for example, are higher than in competitor products.


The tropical climate of Ishigaki Island, 1000 km. south of the mainland, is ideally suited to Chlorella cultivation. Clean air and fresh mountain spring water make for a complete absence of harmful contaminants. Chemical analysis shows Yaeyama Pacifica to have no detectable levels of mercury, lead, pesticide and herbicide. Unlike some Chlorella, Yaeyama Pacifica is grown outdoors in 45metre controlled ponds allowing the Chlorella full benefit of the strong tropical sunlight.


Chlorella has a hard indigestible cell wall, which has to be opened to allow its abundant nutrients to be absorbed. Some producers use chemical bleaching, heat treatments or milling to 'crack' the hard wall – these harsh treatments can have a detrimental effect on the valuable nutrients within.

Yaeyama Pacifica Chlorella undergoes a unique water Jet-Spray Cell Wall Technology developed by the grower, to gently open the cell wall for a high 82% digestibility, delivering potency, purity and mild taste.


The biggest enemy of Chlorella is oxygen which can quickly damage the sensitive vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants, reducing nutritional potency.

The nutrient-rich Yaeyama Pacifica is protected in the bottle with state of the art LOCTEC oxygenless packaging, ensuring the potency of this amazing superfood is protected from oxygen. More 

Interesting Facts


In the 1950's Chlorella (and later, spirulina) attracted the interest of scientists seeking food sources able to overcome the problems of drought and land scarcity. Chlorella, with its ability to produce 50 times the protein per hectare available from conventional crops, was top of the list.

Due to its hard outer wall, there were initial concerns with the digestibility of Chlorella. These were addressed in the 1970's with the development of various cell wall breaking technologies.

Since then, numerous studies have confirmed Chlorella's nutritional and health benefits and Chlorella today is recognised amongst the most nutritious and useful of the 'Green Superfoods'. Chlorella has been the most popular food supplement in Japan for over 20 years and has today an estimated 10 million users.

With its outstanding healing, nutritional, detoxification and anti-inflammatory properties, Chlorella has outlived many health fads and continues to grow in popularity.

Radiation Info

Both Hawaiian Spirulina and Yaeyama Chlorella are freshwater microalgae and are NOT grown in the ocean. Both are grown on the land in environmentally controlled food-grade ponds where the fresh water quality and purity of the microalgae species can be maintained.

Both the islands on which Hawaiian Spirulina (Big Island of Hawaii) and Yaeyama Chlorella (Ishigaki Island, Yaeyama) are grown DO NOT receive either low level or high level winds or Ocean currents from the Japanese mainland.

Since the Fukishima disaster occurred, continuous independent testing on both Hawaiian Spirulina and Yaeyama Chlorella have shown NO detectable radiation.
