About Chlorella Supplement

Chlorella is a blue-green algae native to Japan and Taiwan. It has an exceptional nutritional profile and offers a wide range of benefits, containing up to 7% chlorophyll, a natural detoxification agent. Chlorophyll reduces the toxicity and hyperproliferative effects of dietary haem, which is found in red meat. This was reported in Carcinogenesis way back in 2005. It is believed that the toxic effects of haem may in part be responsible for the high incidences of colon cancer. Chlorella is a rich source of protein, at 60.5% by weight, and contains all nine essential amino acids. However, only a small portion is consumed in any given day of chlorella supplementation, whether it is powder or tablets. Therefore, the contribution of chlorella to our daily protein needs is small. 


This algae is rich in beta carotene, which is a provider of an important nutrient called vitamin A (retinol). Beta Carotene is composed of two molecules of vitamin A, linked together. Chlorella also contains an entire B complex, and is a particularly rich source of Vitamin B2 and B3. It also provides decent amounts of iodine, magnesium, iron, zinc and calcium. 


Chlorella has been researched countless times of the years by scientists, as they have looked at some of the biological actions of this interesting algae. It has been suggested that this algae may assist with the management of high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, the immune system and poor wound healing. This was reported in the Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine in 2001. This creates some very interesting potential applications for a supplement that can offer good nutrition at the very least. 


Chlorella is a nutrient-rich algae that can be taken during times of high nutritional demand, such as with increased physical activity, or if the diet is lacking in quality nutrition. Additionally, it may be taken to support general health or to boost energy levels. Often, it is taken as part of a heavy metal chelation therapy, to aid in the removal of toxic substances from the body, such as mercury and cadmium. It may also assist in the removal of pesticides and herbicides. Chlorella is most commonly used in tablet form for its convenience, however, pleasant tasting powdered products are available, often mixed with other green powders, such as barley grass and wheat grass.
