Chlorella is a green freshwater alga which is thought to exist on Earth 3.5 billion years ago. Chlorella has its own unique growth factor (CGF) which replicates four new cells every 20-24 hours and that is why it is considered one of the best foods for strengthening our immune systems. Chlorella also contains chlorophyll that is thought to help detoxify our bodies and it also contains beta carotene, iodine, iron, zinc, potassium, magnesium, calcium, vitamin B12 and phosphorus and is full of digestive enzymes.
Both Chlorella & Spirulina are different types of algae and these are organically grown providing a great source of the essential nutrients our bodies need to remain healthy. It is thought that 1 gram of Spirulina provides an equivalent amount of essential vitamins and minerals to 1000 grams of fruit and vegetables. This is probably one of few superfoods that is suitable for everyone.
