Sun Chlorella is the Official Supplement of The Premier Lacrosse League
Sun Chlorella has been one of the leading chlorella companies for over 50 years. Originating in Japan, Sun Chlorella is now the proud superfood and supplement sponsors of the Premier Lacrosse League (PLL). What is Chlorella and what the hell does it have to do with Lacrosse? Good question! Chlorella is a type of algae that grows in fresh water containing protein, fat, carbs, fiber, chlorophyll, nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), vitamin C, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, minerals and is one of the only plant sources of active vitamin B12. So it looks like your Aunt Shirley was right all along, Chlorella may taste awful but it’s good for you!
Chlorella May Improve Endurance & Support Immunity
In a 2014 study, test subjects took 15 chlorella tablets twice a day for 4 weeks. Those who took chlorella saw an increase in their peak oxygen intake, indicating that chlorella might help increase aerobic endurance capacity. In terms of immune support, a 2012 study looked at how chlorella affects the immune system of humans. Those who took 5g of chlorella (tablets) for 8 weeks experienced various biological changes that suggested chlorella might strengthen the immune system. So it’s benefits to competitive athletes like lacrosse players are pretty obvious.
"We were thrilled to partner with Sun Chlorella as the Official Superfood of the PLL," says PLL Co-Founder and CEO Mike Rabil. "Sun Chlorella was already a favorite supplement of some of our players. We've been working with the great team at Sun Chlorella over the last six months and we are delighted to officially kick off this partnership."
Sun Chlorella powder is the only chlorella supplement on the market today that is NSF Certified for Sport® and Informed Sport trusted. Most supplement companies that are testing their products for banned substances use either NSF or Informed Sport testing but not both. But they’ve done both which is expensive but impressive nonetheless.
