Chlorella Supplement

Just like spirulina, chlorella is also an alga that is gaining popularity as a supplement.

Chlorella is a single-celled, green freshwater alga that is praised for its impressive nutritional profile.

Thanks to its rich nutrient profile, chlorella is rising to be at par if not a better substitute to spirulina. Studies have found that chlorella has a much higher fat and calorie content than spirulina. In addition, chlorella also boasts not just higher levels of omega-3 fatty acid content but as well as impressive amounts of provitamin A, riboflavin, magnesium, iron, and zinc when compared to spirulina.

Since chlorella has a hard cell wall, humans cannot digest it. Due to this, it is a must to take chlorella as a supplement. The wonder alga is available in capsule, tablet, powder, and even extract form.

As a supplement, chlorella offers a wide variety of benefits. Chlorella has been found to increase the activity of the immune system, thus, boosting immune response. Additionally, chlorella also possesses a good deal of fiber, antioxidants, and carotenoids that are known to help lower cholesterol levels.

Meanwhile, some research showed promising effects of chlorella on heart health. A study linked chlorella supplements to lower blood pressure reading and less stiffness of the arteries. Research has pointed out that chlorella's rich nutrient profile which includes arginine, potassium, calcium, and omega fatty acids can help protect the arteries from hardening. 

This just proves how chlorella is the newest algae in town receiving the buzz for its benefits.
