a tin full of vitamins

Chlorella pyrenoidosa is an excellent source of the most important vitamins. It is also a leader in the content of some vitamins, e.g. it contains more “supermolecules¨ of vitamin B12 than beef liver or brewer’s yeast.


Green Ways Chlorella pyrenoidosa is grown in the most natural environment possible, without artificial fertilisers, pesticides and genetic manipulation. When it is growing, it lives in a balanced synergy with other organisms. Thanks to such cooperating organisms, it is rich in vitamin B12 and also vitamin K2, which it could not otherwise create on its own.


  • It takes care of the distribution of calcium, so it is key to the development of bones and teeth 
  • It supports mental functions, reproduction and metabolism of the vascular wall 
  • If the body lacks vitamin K2, calcium is stored in the wrong places (in the blood vessel walls) 
  • Its deficiency can cause inflammation, to which the body responds by raising its level of cholesterol 
  • In the case of a deficiency, we are at risk of developing osteoporosis, pain when moving, fatigue, increased tooth decay or difficulty with digestion 
  • In the case of vegetarians and vegans, 45 pcs. of chlorella supplement provides the daily recommended dose of vitamin B12 and K2.


  • Improves concentration, memory and reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases
  • Its deficiency is manifested by anaemia, loss of muscle coordination, shaking or tingling in the limbs and impaired mental performance. 

It is also rich in other B vitamins – B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8 – thereby increasing the resistance to stress  

It also contains: 

Vitamin C – supports immunity and the absorption of nutrients, as well as regulating cholesterol levels 

- Vitamin E – essential for reproductive health, cancer prevention and the better use of oxygen 

Vitamin H (biotin) – essential for the health of the skin, hair and joints It contains the molecules of youth – antioxidants

- Vitamin C – 17 times more than is found in an orange 

- Beta carotene – a precursor of vitamin A, with 10 times more than is found in carrots  

A modern theory cites the cause of aging in the action of “free radicals¨.  

Vitamins = antioxidants: 

Antioxidants stop their destructive, cascading effects. They reduce the amount of cellular waste, which slows down the aging process. 

Antioxidants do not clean up “waste¨, but prevent its generation. This cleanses and rejuvenates the body at the molecular level.

AMINO acids

Chlorella pyrenoidosa is a very rich source of amino acids, as they make up about 60% of its weight. 

By comparison, beef contains only 22% protein. In addition, it contains mostly simple amino acids or short-chain peptides, which are much easier for the body to digest.

Animal proteins are made up of long chains, which the body must first break down into individual amino acids, then absorb in the small intestine and only then can it make its own proteins.

In the proteins that create the building block of our body, we find a total of 20 different types of amino acids. Out of these, 19 are contained in chlorella pyrenoidosa. This includes 8 essential amino acids that the body cannot make and must receive through food.

In chlorella, we find essential amino acids in the following ratios (the given ratios are indicative):

Phenylalanine (2.8%) - required for thyroxine synthesis, regulates metabolism 
Isoleucine (2.3%) - necessary for optimal cell growth, intelligence development 
Leucine (4.7%) - stimulates brain function, muscle work 
Lysine (3.1%) - affects blood circulation, the production of antibodies in the blood 
Methionine (3.1%) - anti-stress factor, fat metabolism, liver health 
Threonine (2.4%) - essential for collagen production 
Tryptophan (0.5%) - supports emotional stability, health of the nervous system 
Valine (3.2%) - stimulates brain activity, muscle coordination.


Alanine (4.3%) - strengthens cell walls
Arginine (3.3%) - supports reproductive health
Glycine (3.1%) - utilization of oxygen in cells
Histidine (1.1%) - prevention of hearing disorders (also essential)
Aspartic acid (4.7%) - conversion of carbohydrates into energy
Glutamic acid (5.8%) - a source of energy for brain cells, affects mental development
Proline (2.5%) - important for brain function
Serine (2.0%) - protection of fatty covering of nerve cells 

MINERaLs And trace elements

Algae are richer in minerals than terrestrial plants. They are usually consumed in an organic form that is optimal for their absorption. Chlorella contains 20 times more iron than spinach. Thanks to this iron, vitamins B, C and chlorophyll, it can fight anaemia.

Chlorella has 11 times more calcium than cow’s milk! The correct ratio of 1: 1: 1 calcium, sodium, magnesium is also important for the correct absorption of calcium. Vitamin K2, vitamin D, vitamin C are also all are contained in chlorella pyrenoidosa.  

Magnesium  supports nerve and muscle activity, is essential for the conversion of sugars into energy 
Manganese – supports memory and metabolism, as well as hormonal balance in the body 
Phosphorus – important for the strength of teeth and bones, and for nutrient metabolism 
Potassium – sugar metabolism, removal of waste from the body, stimulates mental activity, fluid balance in the body Iodine – energy metabolism 

Copper – helps absorb iron 
Selenium – protects the body from premature aging 
Zinc – key for sexuality and reproduction, with antioxidant effectsIron – necessary for the transfer of oxygen through the blood 
Sodium – important for nerve impulse transmission, muscle work, and fluid balance Calcium – necessary for building bones and teeth, normalizes nerve and muscle functions 

The chlorella minerals bind organically and are usable in a maximal manner.
Minerals isolate heavy metals from the body. 
Minerals help the cells absorb water, allowing toxins to be flushed out. 
With sufficient minerals, toxic substances are less well incorporated into the body.

PREBIOTIC properties

Chlorella pyrenoidosa is historically an organism with minimal mutations, tremendous genetic stability and amazing reproductive abilities. Chlorella pyrenoidosa is a freshwater algae that does adhere to the process of aging and dying. It knows only the three stages of life: youth, adulthood and motherhood – but not old age.

In an emerald package filled with vital substances, its size is similar to a red blood cell. 

The Czech nutritionist Jiří Šnajdr characterised it as follows: “Chlorella is the highest form of food treatment for an organism… Chlorella pyrenoidosa contains a certain “something¨ that we do not find in other foods! 

Dr Fujimiaki from Japan isolated a substance called CGF (Chlorellas Growth Factor), which is a revitalising ingredient found only in chlorella.  

These are the elements and compounds found in the nucleus of chlorella cells; in particular, they include the following substances: 

Nucleic acids – DNA and RNA 
Beta glucans 
Sulphur and manganese in unique proportions

It is the DNA and RNA nucleic acids that are important for protein synthesis and that promote proper cell proliferation and growth. A lack of these in the body is also responsible for premature aging.  

A diet that is rich in nucleic acids promotes longevityThey help protect cells from degeneration and support the growth of the right intestinal microflora 4 times faster. 

Chlorella contains 17 times more RNA than sardines.  

CGF not only supports the proper formation of new cells, but also helps repair damaged cells. 

CGF accelerates the multiplication of the beneficial intestinal microflora and improves the absorption of nutrients through the intestinal wall. 

CGF is a growth factor that is primarily created by the chlorella itself as a source of nutrition. Just as the CGF nourishes the chlorella cells, it can nourish human cells. It improves the functioning of the immune system and has a beneficial effect on the overall energy of the body. 

what are PHEOPHORBIDes?

Never buy products that do not state the amount of this substance!!! In addition to chlorophyll, chlorine always contains pheophorbides - a chlorophyll derivative. It can be an allergenic to a large extent – in particular, it can increase photosensitivity or sensitivity to light.

With Green Ways Chlorella, the consumer would have to consume almost 20 kg per day in order to significantly increase his/her photosensitivity. 

Green Ways Chlorella contains a minimal amount of this substance
 due to the processing method (STEAM) and the high-quality raw material. The Green Ways company is so serious that it lists these substances in its products. A failure to state the content of this substance signals inconsistency and an unprofessional approach. The current Green Ways Organic Chlorella product contains pheophorbides that are well below the permitted standard of 20 mg/100 g.

Their level ranges from 9.8 to 11.7 mg/100 g, which is a value far below the allowable limit! 

what does the "STEAM" method mean?

This is the method used to process the Green Ways Chlorella Pyrenoidosa. DISINTEGRATION OF THE CELL WALL OF the chlorella is important for the nutrient absorption.

The methods used to disintegrate the chlorella cell walls are:

ENZYMATIC – where the cell surface is weakened and the availability of the useful chlorella substances is increased.

MECHANICAL – for example, using glass beads. This leads to a good breakdown of the cell walls of chlorella; but at the same time, there is an undesired spillage of the cell nucleus. In addition, if the glass beads are of a poor quality, the chlorella will be contaminated with heavy metals.

FREEZE DRYING or so-called LYOPHILISATION. Its disadvantage is a lower level of tolerance, or allergisation.

SPRAY DRYING = STEAM method – this is an effective method of drying and at the same time disrupting the cell walls. With the right ratio of temperature and pressure, water will evaporate and cracks will form on the walls of the algae. The Green Ways supplier of raw materials uses this type of STEAM method. 

Taiwan chlorella has the highest quality standards for chlorella processing under the STEAM designation. 

In a special evaporator, at a certain pressure and temperature, there is an instantaneous evaporation – drying and at the same time rupturing of the cell walls of the chlorella. Under a microscope, clusters of whole cells can be seen with torn walls and with the chlorella cell content preserved.Digestibility is measured by placing the cells in a digestive solution, which is heated to body temperature with shaking. The amount of substances released from the chlorella is then measured. Green Ways states only the values confirmed by independent laboratories – about 80% digestibility.

There are methods that can increase the digestibility up to 85%, but only at the cost of destroying the cell nucleus and reducing the nutritional value. Thus, Green Ways offers products with the best ratio of processing quality and nutrient availability.
