Chlorella is a mine of amino acids(1)― Indispensable nutrients for life support ―


What is amino acid?

Amino acids are used in various type of supplements, food and drinks. Do you know that amino acids are will-known as physical improvement components and popular in the fields of diet and beauty? Various studies have been conducted on amino acids because of the superior function.

What is amino acid?

80 percent of human body is composed of water and protein. It is 20 kinds of amino acids that constitute the protein. Our brains, organs, muscles, and nerve transmitter substances are produced depending on combinations of amino acids. 9 kinds among 20 kinds of indispensable amino acids are not produced into body, so they are called “essential amino acids” because they need to be taken from daily diets. Amino acids are contained in protein of meats, fishes, and eggs, but the types and amounts differ from each other.





If amino acids are not sufficient…

To stay healthy, we need 9 essencial amino acids with good balance. Nutrients such as amino acids work in accordance with the lowest numerical value, thus if insufficient any, the function will be down by half. If you worry about the balance of your diet, we recommend you to think about more effective way of taking amino acids.




Chlorella with an excellent composition of amino acids

Chlorella consists of about 60 percent of proteins, and is also rich in essential amino acids, nonessential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Since chlorella has good composition of amino acids, you can take 9 kinds of essential amino acids properly. Besides that, chlorella contains a lot of nonessential amino acids, so it can make up for deficiencies in the body occurred with aging.
