Chlorella and Spirulina are both amazing health boosting fresh water algae thanks to their incredible content of chlorophyll, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. They are a complete source of protein and are high in B vitamins. They also contain detoxifying and cleansing properties.

If you are a vegan or vegetarian these superfoods are of particular importance due to their high levels of B12 which can be otherwise lacking in your diet. (B12 is richer in Spirulina than in Chlorella). The bioavailable protein they contain also makes them ideal for vegans and they are brilliant for vegan athletes as they are great energy boosters and help muscle recovery and performance.

The rich green colour found in these algaes is from their high content of chlorophyll which is also found in other dark green vegetables. Chlorophyll is not only alkalising but can help the body to eliminate harmful toxins and heavy metals. It also helps with wound healing and blood cell regeneration.

Spirulina

Spirulina is a blue-green algae that grows naturally on lakes and ponds. This blue-green algae is thousands of years older than Chlorella. It contains the blue pigment phycocyanin which is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the cells from damage. It has been shown to improve immunity and help treat many illnesses. Spirulina contains more protein than Chlorella, it is in fact a very high source of protein, more so than beef! Spirulina is also a good source of GLA (Gamma-linoleic acid) that is essential for healthy, brain and heart function. It also helps to balance hormones. It contains vitamins A, B Vitamins and K and also minerals including Iron, Calcium and Magnesium. One of the huge advantages of spirulina is its high magnesium content which is great for cleansing, bones, joints and heart health. Not only that, magnesium is one of nature’s anti-depressants and helps us cope with stress.

Chlorella

Chlorella is a green algae that grows in fresh water ponds in the far East. It contains the highest amount of chlorophyll out of all the microalgae and about 10 times more than Spirulina. It also has more iron than Spirulina and it contains special growth factor properties that help to repair damage to nerve tissue, making it good for the brain and memory. Chlorella helps detoxify, regulate metabolism and balance blood sugar levels. It gently stimulates underactive bowels and enhances gut flora whilst aiding the excretion of harmful toxins; this makes it an ideal supplement for digestive and weight issues. Your heart will also benefit as it helps to reduce triglycerides and cholesterol.
