Chlorella is one of the coolest things ever. With it’s deep dark slytherin green complexion it takes ‘healthy’ to a whole new level.
Chlorella is a single cell algae lot like its cousin, Spirulina which is multi-cell as they are both water algae. They are both full of great minerals however Chlorella is jam-packed with protein, iron, magnesium, and an impressive B-vitamin complex. It’s also amazing for detoxifying the body and removing metals.
Due to its hard outer shell, it’s important to get this supplement with the words ‘broken cell wall’ or something similar. Getting one that has a broken shell allows humans to digest the algae. The amount of chlorophyll gives the algae its green colour and responsible for the colour of leafy greens. Chlorophyll also helps neutralize bodily odours.
Because of it’s amazing nutrients, helps fight inflammation and increase the amount of Natural Killer cells, helps fight illnesses.
Chlorella detoxifies the blood and lowers blood sugar. It’s great for those who eat fish regularly, have silver fillings, or have been undergoing chemotherapy. In Japan, it is one of the highest consumed supplement as Japan contains most of the algae and they eat a large amount of fish, yet live relatively long lives.
Moreover, Vitamin B has shown to aid in weight loss through metabolism increase. It also improves hormonal balance and lowers glucose levels in the blood resulting in less cravings and a fuller appetite.
The taste and smell of chlorella is the only downside. It is absolutely awful and ruins the smell of just about everything. I enjoy mixing the powder with vanilla almond milk with ginger and cinnamon. Although this recipe doesn’t completely hide the taste, it does make it easier to swallow. If you have a strong sensitivity to taste, I suggest checking out the capsule version of Chlorella rather than the powder.
I buy my powder from this brand.
But this brand has great capsules as well.
