Frequently Asked Questions

Chlorella

Could we take chlorella while on medication?

Indoor chlorella is a pure and natural, non-medicinal food supplement which should not have any conflict with medicines.

How does Abeille d’Or Chlorella compare to spirulina?

Chlorella is fresh water algae whereas spirulina is cultivated in salt water. Chlorella or better known as the green algae, as the name suggests, has 10 times higher chlorophyll content than that of spirulina. Due to its thin cell wall (low fiber), spirulina could not be Heterotrophic Tank cultivated. Different methods of cultivation deliver different qualities. Heterotrophic Tank Cultivated Abeille d’Or Chlorella is assured in quality, hygiene, high nutrition, high digestibility and better taste!

Can Abeille d’Or chlorella replace vegetables?

Yes, if sufficient amount is taken regularly. Lack of chlorophyll affects our blood and health. Chlorella has been found to have the highest chlorophyll content than any other vegetables or plants on earth. This helps to benefit adults or children who do not eat enough vegetables.

Are all chlorella or other algae the same?

Chlorella is a general term just like mangoes or durian. The difference is in the cultivation technology. Different methods, strands deliver different qualities. Heterotrophic Tank Cultivated Abeille d’Or Chlorella assures quality, hygiene, high nutrition, high digestibility and better taste!

How long after taking chlorella do we begin to see the effectiveness?

Results vary on one’s condition. e.g. People with constipation would see result within 3 days. For most slow acting diseases, results can be seen within 3-4 months. Be consistent with taking indoor chlorella; the longer period the more effective it is.

Is it suitable for children, pregnant women or even infants?

It is best to start early as minerals and nutrients in chlorella help promote growth. Our indoor chlorella is “Heterotrophic tank” closed system cultivated, 100% pure and free from pollution or contamination. It is perfectly safe, hygienic and nutritious.

We see CGF as 1 of the content in Abeille d’Or Chlorella, what is CGF?

CGF is a nucleotide-peptide complex derived from a hot water extract of chlorella. It is made mostly of nucleic acid derivatives. Researchers have discovered that CGF is produced to promote the reproduction rate of chlorella. Experiments shows that CGF promotes faster growth without adverse side effects, and it appears to enhance RNA/DNA functions responsible for production of proteins, enzymes and energy at the cellular level, stimulating tissue repair and protecting cells against some toxic substances. As people age, cell processes slow down. The cell wall, which regulates fluids, intake of nutrients and expulsion of wastes, becomes less functional. Nutrient intake is less efficient and more toxic wastes remain in the cells. This leads to an increasing acidic condition in the body that favours many kinds of chronic and degenerative diseases. When we have a sufficient intake of foods rich in DNA and RNA to protect our own cellular nucleic acids, the cell wall continues to function efficiently, keeping the cell clean and well nourished. When our RNA and DNA are in good repair and able to function most efficiently, our bodies are able to use nutrients more effectively, get rid of toxins and avoid disease. Cells are able to repair themselves, and the energy level and vitality of the whole body is raised. *Dr. Benjamin Frank, author of The No-Aging Diet, suggests that human RNA/DNA production slows down progressively as people age, resulting in lower levels of vitality and increased vulnerability to various diseases. Before chlorella was known to be a remarkable source of nucleic acids, Dr. Frank recommended a diet rich in nucleic acids to counter this “aging” process. *Dr. Minchinori Kimura of Japan found levels of 1O% RNA and 3% DNA in chlorella, which would make chlorella the highest-known food substance in nucleic acids. Used regularly, chlorella would assist in the repair of damaged genetic material in human cells, protecting health and slowing down the aging process. Nucleic acids in digestion and assimilation are broken down and combined with other nutrients such as vitamin B-12, peptides and polysaccharides. That means that the DNA and RNA we eat do not directly replace human cellular DNA and RNA, but their amino acid combinations after digestion and assimilation immediately provide the “building blocks” for repair of our genetic material. CGF content in Abeille d’Or Chlorella (about 20%) is one of the highest comparing to most other algae-products in the market which normally only carry 3% to 5% CGF.

What exactly is Abeille d’Or Chlorella?

Abeille d’Or Chlorella is a single-celled freshwater green plant and a whole food nutritional supplement. Because it is a whole food rather than a fractionalized extract or an isolated component, Chlorella contains all the beneficial components of the entire plant in naturally perfect balance. In addition to highly bio-available vitamins and minerals, Abeille d’Or Chlorella contains significant amounts of vegetable protein, beta carotene and chlorophyll, known for its cleansing and purifying properties. Additionally, its cell wall provides important dietary fiber and further aids in internal cleansing.

What is the best way to consume chlorella?

Abeille d’Or Chlorella is tasty and most people enjoy chewing it. It could also be diluted in water or swallowed. Either way, sufficient water intake (200cc – 250cc) is recommended.

why do we feel “heaty” after taking and how long will it persist?

Abeille d’Or chlorella is neutral. The heatiness we feel is due to the improved metabolism rate we achieve after consuming chlorella. This usually happens to those who are often exposed to excessive sunlight and heat, or people who always work overnight. It normally occurs for only 3 to 10 days.

Why do we need chlorophyll and how does Abeille d’Or Chlorella compare to other kinds of source?

One of the greatest food substances for cleansing the bowel and other elimination systems, the liver and the blood is chlorophyll, as found in all green vegetables, especially the green, leafy vegetables. Chlorophyll bears a molecular structure identical to that of human blood, with the exception of one atom. Red blood cells have an iron molecule whereas chlorophyll has a magnesium molecule. Because of the structural similarities, chlorophyll has the ability to carry oxygen directly into the blood stream. Many people who use green food supplements regularly report substantial increases in energy and overall well-being. Also, consumption of green foods can dramatically improve the tone and texture of the skin. The problem we find here is that food greens contain less than half of one percent chlorophyll. Alfalfa, from which chlorophyll is commercially extracted, has only 8 or 9 pounds per ton, about 0.2% when extracted, and alfalfa is one of the plants highest in chlorophyll. Commercial liquid chlorophyll often contains only about 1% chlorophyll. Green algae are the highest sources of chlorophyll in the plant world; and, of all the green algae studied so far, chlorella is the highest, often ranging up to 5% chlorophyll. Abeille d’Or Chlorellacontains up to 16 times higher chlorophyll compared to spinach and can speed up the rate of cleansing of the bowel, bloodstream and liver, by supplying plenty of chlorophyll.

Why should vegetarians take chlorella?

As their choices of food are limited, it is harder to get a well balanced diet, which might lead to anemia or loss of energy. Take Abeille d’Or Chlorella sufficiently and regularly to achieve a nutritional balanced diet.

Why would anyone want to take Abeille d’Or Chlorella?

Abeille d’Or Chlorella is a non-medicinal natural health food supplement that is able to provide human body balance nutrition in our daily diet. With modern life dietary habit, the intake of meat and carbohydrate has considerably increased whereas the consumption of green vegetables is getting below the required level. Fast food and processed food is getting too common and popular within our culture, it is not easy to achieve nutritional balance through our normal everyday meals. This has given rise to various common diseases. Chlorella can make up for this shortage of vegetable intake and nutritional insufficiency. Abeille d’Or Chlorella provides all the nutrients one needs to live with, including high levels of vegetable protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals, plus chlorophyll. Abeille d’Or Chlorella is one of the most concentrated sources of beta carotene, calcium, magnesium and zinc available. The chlorophyll content is important as a nutrient because it has potent detoxifying properties. Unlike normal outdoor cultivation, Abeille d’Or Chlorella is cultivated in a sterilized sealed tank called Heterotrophic Tank System (worldwide patented technology of Yakult), free from all kinds of possible environmental pollution and micro-organism contamination. An ideal habitat is provided for the growth of Chlorella that results in a consistently high quality, pure, tasty and hygienic product.

Verte

Any side effects when start taking Verte?

No side effects have been reported. You may experience stomach discomfort or diarrhea if taking in a large amount.

Are oligosaccharides / inulin prebiotics?

Yes. Oligosaccharides / inulin are classified as prebiotics. You should look for the labels of Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), inulin (a type of FOS)/ oligosaccharides.

Are prebiotics dietary fiber?

Both fiber and prebiotics are typically non-digestible carbohydrates, and both are typically fermented by gut bacteria. However, a prebiotics differs from fiber in that it needs to be selectively used in the gut – by only beneficial members of the gut microbial immunity. In European Member States, chicory inulin and oligofructose are recognized and labeled as dietary fiber.

Chlorella is one of the ingredients in Verte. Do I still need to consume Chlorella besides Verte?

Of course! The amount of Chlorella in Verte do not fulfilled the daily requirements. It is best recommended to consume 5-10 tablets of Chlorella together with Verte for a maximum health benefits.

If I take probiotics, do I need to take Verte (prebiotics)?

Yes, you may. Prebiotics can complement probiotic function.

Is it suitable for children aged 5 and below?

Yes. Children have weaker immune and digestive system and it is recommended for children aged 5 and below to consume ½ to 1 sachet daily. In fact, there is addition of prebiotics to infant formula to promote good digestion and immune system.

One of Verte ingredients is oligosaccharide. Is it suitable for diabetes?

Oligosaccharide or inulin is a natural soluble vegetable fiber (from chicory roots, leek, asparagus, and artichoke) with a low caloric value (low on glycemic index). It is suitable for diabetics because inulin does not stimulate insulin secretion.

Should I continuously consume Verte or when should I stop? Or is that a course?

You may take Verte for 30 days to enjoy its benefit. However, there is no harm taking Verte continuously as it is a health food.

What are prebiotics?

Prebiotics are defined as “Non-digestible food ingredients that beneficially affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacterial species already resident in the colon, and thus attempt to improve host health” (Gibson & Roberfroid, 1995). Prebiotics are simply speaking, the ‘food’ for beneficial bacteria.

What are the health benefits by consuming Verte?

An adequate amount of prebiotics have been shown to provide health benefits including improving digestion function and providing a good intestinal environment, increasing bifidobacteria (good bacteria), enhances immune system, and improved absorption of dietary minerals such as calcium and magnesium

When is the best time to consume Verte and how long should I consume after mixing it into drinks?

Just take them at any time of the day. Suggest consume before meal to get a better result. Drink it immediately after mixing it into drinks.
