Chlorella is an algae that is placed among the elite of animal and plant species, known as “living fossils”. Living fossils have not evolved over thousands of years, despite many changes on Earth, they have remained unchanged. Why is this so? Because their ancient design was already flawless! Chlorella comes from Taiwan and Japan and was discovered by a Dutch microbiologist in 1890. During the widespread food shortages during World War II, it was recognized as a potential new food source, as it contains a huge amount of protein and grows as much as four times a day. Today it is considered an extremely useful alga, which is usually consumed in the form of dietary supplements. Taking spirulina as part of a balanced diet can help you stay well-nourished.
Spirulina is a blue-green algae that was famously used by NASA as a nutritional supplement for astronauts on space missions. Also known to the Aztecs for its stamina-enhancing properties, spirulina has been considered a superfood since its discovery. Spirulina is a good source of essential vitamins and minerals such as thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), copper, iron, protein and magnesium.
Chlorella contains an extremely large amount of chlorophyll – more of this compound is responsible for collecting energy from sunlight through photosynthesis than any other plant. Chlorophyll is also known to support excretory organs. Chlorella is also known for being an important vegan source of vitamin B12, which is otherwise difficult to get enough from a plant-based diet. It is mostly found in meat products. Chlorella also contains a lot of iron, which is known to support the immune system, supply the body with energy, and at the same time participate in various cleansing processes. It is also an excellent addition to the daily diet of people who do not eat regularly and are balanced due to their fast lifestyle and also for those who spend a lot of time in a sitting position and do not move enough and have slow digestion as a result.
Of course, chlorella also contains vitamins A, C and E, which brings many benefits. Among other things, these vitamins contribute to the maintenance of beautiful skin and healthy vision, help in the formation of new blood vessels and protect cells from oxidative stress. Chlorella is also rich in protein, so it is a recommended supplement, especially for vegans, who often lack these physical building blocks. At the same time, chlorella also contains all the essential amino acids, which means that you do not need to take a lot of different supplements. It also contains minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and potassium. And last but not least, microalgae are considered a concentrated source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Algae chlorella (chlorella) contains:
- amino acids
- vitamins A, B, C and E
Chlorella in tablets – use the power of algae
Chlorella is a green algae that grows in fresh water. It contains a high protein content (about 60% by weight) and is valued for its excellent cleaning properties. Although there are some nutritional differences between chlorella and spirulina, chlorella has higher levels of vitamins and minerals than its counterpart. It is also a better source of healthy fats such as omega 3. The unique nutrients of chlorella are bound in this product in a tough cellulose fiber casing that needs to be ‘broken’ in order to be properly digested when ingested. A special process that excludes heat and light to preserve nutritional integrity cracks the outer wall of the wrapper. In doing so, the amazing properties of chlorella are released into an easily digestible form that is just waiting to be consumed. Each carefully pre-measured dose of chlorella is compressed into a small tablet with no other added ingredients, which is extremely easy to swallow, so you can easily incorporate chlorella tablets into your daily routine.
