Regular intake of chlorella in either form can help prevent the body from harmful diseases, lower cholesterol, regulate blood pressure, lower blood sugar, increase oxygen intake and enhance endurance.

It can be blended into a smoothie, shake or juice; mixed into salad dressings or added to soup; used for baking; or even just simply diluted into a glass of water.

Where does Chlorella Powder come from?

Chlorella is a fast growing, single-celled micro algae, that has been called a fix-all supplement due to its wide range of health benefits. It appeared on earth more than 2 billion years ago, making it one of the oldest foods on the planet. Chlorella grows in freshwater and is considered one of the primary superfoods due to its exceptional nutritional qualities. The name ‘chlorella’ comes from the Greek word for green and the Latin ending ‘ella’ which means small, which is exactly how it looks under a microscope after it has been harvested. It is natures highest source of chlorophyll which makes it a popular source of food and energy.

Chlorella is native to Taiwan and Japan but has been researched and grown all over the world since the 19th century however it wasn’t until the 20th century when it became very popular. During this time, there were global concerns about over-population in the world. More specifically, there were fears of a hunger crisis. Countries all over the world feared they would not be able to provide enough food to sustain the growing population and the chlorella crop was seen as a potential solution. Chlorella was a key factor in the answer to world hunger because it was quick to grow, it was cost efficient, and it was packed full of protein and other nutrients that would sustain the body. Scientists agreed that chlorella would be a suitable replacement for meat if  traditional agriculture came to a standstill.

The population problem never came to that point but the research carried out on chlorella still stands to show it is an incredibly beneficial supplement to take, especially for vegans and vegetarians. Our Chlorella Powder is made from 100% raw organic chlorella, sourced with respect for nature and certified organic by the Irish Organic Association and by the European Commission, so you know you’re getting the best of a pure product. After it is harvested, it is processed into a powder form that is perfect to be taken with liquid drinks or consumed as food. Our Chlorella Powder is so versatile and can be taken as part of every meal.

Chlorella Powder Benefits

  • Chlorella is a powerhouse of nutrients. It boasts a variety of health-boosting properties that explain why we can call it a superfood. It is important to bear in mind that the exact nutrient content varies depending on how it was grown, under what conditions, what species it comes from, and how it is processed. However, we know it includes potent amounts of the following: protein, iron, omega-3s, fibre, antioxidants, chlorophyll as well as various vitamins and minerals. For this reason, it is often used a food supplement.
  • All of these nutrients mean it’s an excellent supplement to help boost your immune system. Studies have shown that people who took chlorella regularly appeared to have strengthened their immune system. A strong immune system means you have a better chance of fighting off inflections. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in chlorella help to prevent illness and diseases. Some of these studies have also showed the potential of chlorella to speed up wound healing.
  • Chlorella contains antioxidants which can help protect our bodies from chronic diseases.
  • It can lower “bad” cholesterol. LDL (low-density lipoprotein) is the type of cholesterol that can clog up our arteries. Chlorella is a natural source of omega-3 fats and fibre that can help reduce this type of cholesterol. It also contains niacin (a B vitamin), fibre, and carotenoids, all of which are known to help lower bad cholesterol. Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties can also help prevent the oxidation of bad cholesterol which in turn reduces damage caused to your heart and prevents heart disease.
  • It can regulate blood pressure. Chlorella is a source of calcium, omega-3s, potassium, and arginine. These nutrients protect the arteries from becoming stiff, which is a key factor that affects blood pressure. Studies have shown that a regular intake of chlorella has a positive impact on blood pressure, compared to those who took a placebo. Other studies have shown that it may help reduce high blood pressure that can occur during pregnancy.
  • Chlorella may help lower blood sugar levels. It can improve blood sugar regulation and aids insulin sensitivity, especially with patients who suffer from fatty liver disease.
  • Chlorella can improve our oxygen intake. This may be due to the branched-chain amino acid content of chlorella (these are a type of amino acids that have often been linked to improved aerobic performance). It means that it helps our lungs to take in more oxygen and therefore enhances endurance capacity. For this reason, chlorella has potential to be an effective supplement for athletes.
  • It may also help with respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory contents of chlorella have positive effects on these conditions.
  • A regular intake of chlorella may prevent certain types of cancer. Xenoestrogens are substances that are potentially harmful to the body. They come from sources such as plastics, pesticides, contaminated water, and chemicals. Bisphenol A, or better known as BPA, is an example of an xenoestrogen. The substance mimics the activity of oestrogen and binds to receptor cites which can be cancerous. Chlorella has been tested against a type of xenoestrogen and the result was positive in removing the majority of it from the sample.
  • Chlorella is an excellent supplement in detoxing the body of heavy metals and other harmful compounds. Some heavy metals such as iron and copper are essential to the body in small amounts. However, others such as lead or mercury can be toxic. Dangerous amounts of these types of heavy metals can occur if a person has been long exposed to pollution. Chlorella binds the metals and helps them to be removed through digestion.
  • Other potential benefits of taking chlorella include: improved digestion, liver health, eye health, improved response to the flu vaccine, increasing white blood cell counts, and reducing radiation treatment side effects.

How to use Chlorella Powder

Our Chlorella Powder has gone through careful processing to ensure each and every pack is full of nutritional value. Taking chlorella in powder form is an incredibly easy and convenient way to incorporate it into your diet. It has a “green” taste, almost like green tea. Here are some of the versatile ways we like to take it:

  • Blend it into a smoothie, shakes, or juices;
  • Mix it into salad dressings to top off a nutritious dish;
  • Add it to your soup or stir fry for a healthy, wholesome meal;
  • Bake it into energy bars or other baked goods;
  • Simply dilute it in a glass of warm water.

Recommended dosages for chlorella can vary depending on the concentration of the form that you take it in. We recommend 1 heaped teaspoon of our Chlorella Powder daily is sufficient. Remember, as with all natural foods and supplements, it is best to start small and work up to the recommended daily dosage.

If you find you don’t like the taste of the powder, or have a very active lifestyle, why not try our Chlorella Tablets.
