General use

Chlorella is a single celled algae that some scientists believe may be among the Earth's oldest living organisms, but it was only in the 1960's that Japanese scientists began to study chlorella as a tool of good health. Natural health enthusiasts know chlorella well as a detoxifier, immune stimulator, and excellent source of general nutrition.
Indeed, Chlorella was shown to contain a very high amount of essential minerals and vitamins, as well as a very high content of proteins. The combination of Chlorella and Spirulina was shown to be sufficient to sustain life on its own (with water). Used daily, this super-food combination prevents nutritional deficiencies, promotes a healthy and energetic life.

Medicinal use

No group of people benefits more from chlorella than women with fibromyalgia. A study at the Medical College of Virginia found that taking 10 grams (3 tablespoons) of chlorella a day for two months substantially reduced pain, although it did not eliminate it. Other studies at the same medical school have found that chlorella reduces symptoms of ulcerative colitis and hypertension, health problems frequently occurring in women who have fibromyalgia. In one study, daily supplementation with chlorella was seen to reduce high blood pressure, lower serum cholesterol levels, accelerate wound healing and enhance immune functions.


As a precaution, if you use chlorella every day, take a vitamin B capsule at least once a week as some European studies showed that Chlorella may weaken Vitamin B supplies in the body. Some individuals have experienced stomach discomfort after using Chlorella. If you experience symptoms of stomach discomfort discontinue using immediately.
