Chlorella Blue-Green Algae Powder
- Nutritional powerhouse
- Detoxifies the digestive tract
- Helps maintain liver health
Chlorella Algae (or as it is known scientifically, Chlorella Pyrenoidosa) is a unicellular plant found in fresh water and is the size of a single human blood cell. It possesses a blue-green color because of the excessive amounts of Chlorophyll present in its molecular structure.
This algae is believed to be about 2 billion years old and was one of the first plants to have anything that could be called a defined nucleus in its cellular structure. Though it was regarded as a possible food source and had sufficient nutritional properties, cultivating it in order to feed the masses after the end of WWII was determined to be uneconomic overall. Though these pursuits were abandoned, it was still cultivated for other specific uses, and more research resulted in more uses being discovered for this algae.
Health Benefits Provided By Chlorella Blue-Green Algae
Chlorella Algae has the ability to detoxify the digestive tract. The outer shell of the Chlorella absorbs all of the toxic agents that are present in the digestive tract, cleaning the intestines as it passes through. Not only that, but the insides of the algae are chock full of nutrients, including Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Folic acid, Vitamin B2, Manganese and Iodine.
Chlorella Algae also helps to open up the arteries, increasing blood flow and subsequently the amount of oxygen that makes it to muscle tissue and other important areas. It also synthesizes red blood cells to stimulate creation of new blood and the production of microscopic plant cultures within the intestine.
The question about the difference between Chlorella Algae and Spirulina Algae is often brought up, since the two are very similar. Chlorella Algae has higher Iron content than Spirulina, which can be a benefit or a drawback, depending on the individual needs of the person taking it. Pregnant women often need to have higher Iron intake. Older men also need more Iron in their diet to strengthen their bones. However, taking too much Iron can cause oxidation, which puts greater pressure on the immune system to neutralize free radicals. Much of it comes down to personal preference.

It also has a variety of acids, nutrients and minerals vital for maintaining good health, such as Potassium, Pantothenic acid, Magnesium, Copper, Zinc and Sodium. The chlorophyll present in this supplement, which is chemically very similar to the structure of human blood cells, may provide added benefits.

CHLORELLA BLUE-GREEN ALGAE SIDE EFFECTS
Chlorella Algae have been known to cause side effects in individuals that are susceptible to allergic reaction. These side effects range from mild rash, itching and swelling to trouble breathing and exacerbated asthma attacks. Some mild stomach issues have been associated with Chlorella on occasion, such as nausea or vomiting. Use of this product should be discontinued if symptoms begin to show. This product should not be used by women who are nursing or pregnant.
Chlorella Algae has a strong flavor that can be diluted in veggie juices or fruit juices high in citrus content. Spirulina has a bit of an ocean like taste to it that some may describe as fishy. This is because it is cultivated in salt water. Since Chlorella flourishes in fresh water, there are few people that complain about the taste or smell of it. Still, if the flavor gets to be too much, it can be put into capsules and taken that way.
I recently found that I have extremely high mercury levels in my body and at the same time I am attempting to recover from SIBO. Chlorella is such an amazing product for both of my concerns due to its detoxing qualities. I mix a teaspoon in a small amount of water and 'shoot' it and immediately down another cup of water. I don't even taste it. I'm very happy with Bulk Supplements packaging and how quickly I receive my products. I'm a fan and will continue using Bulk Supplements and will definitely recommend them to others.

This is the first time I had ordered from this site and was very pleased with the results from the packaging, speed of shipping and the taste of the product. I use chlorella frequently but this is by far the best I have had.

this is my morning drink,water or tea, chlorella, broccolli powder, and some times hoodia -all the while my taste buds are sleeping! i have grown to like it.

The primary reason I use chlorella is to alkalize my system. It smells like the ocean and is rich in blue-green, which only accelerates my confidence that the product is prime stuff!

I was very hesitant about this at first because of what I've heard about the taste of chlorella and spirulina and how it's impossible to mask the flavor. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get down! I just mixed it in some warm water, mct oil, honey and vanilla extract and it tasted pretty good. I also feel great. This is one of the best supplements you can take. I highly recommend it.

I purchased this and a few other items and it came in 3 days. i was very pleased with the packaging, and as a first time Chlorella user, i felt the results immediately. I has to use the bathroom, and this stuff cleaned me out well. I am using this every day now, at a teaspoon and a half at a time, and I am pleased with my flatter stomach.

I had a problem with the packaging but when I was able to use this product it surpassed my expectations!
On 9/21/2014 Christopher said...
Just what I expected!! Taste isn't so bad and seems to be of equal or better quality than what I purchased elsewhere at a higher price. I will purchase this again!
On 8/14/2014 Kerry said...
Exactly what I expected. Good product and at a very reasonable price. I mix this with a small amount of juice and then chase it with a little more juice...although the taste isn't that bad. Chlorella isn't supposed to taste like a strawberry milkshake!

Great product I have missed for years till I found bulk supplements and found to my surprise a very affordable product, Came much sooner than expected and its working just as I hoped it would. Nice!

Good chlorella and to my body, power packed. I think the taste is just fine. Chlorella is food but isn't meant to be eaten in large quantities. Thanks for supplying such a good product!

The taste isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. And it had a pretty color too. Super fast shipping. I'm really liking this company. Thanks.

Pleased with bulk supplements and their products would be an understatement! Originally ordered blue green algae (chlorella) from amazon. Found the bag was punctured in a few places which was amazon's fault. I contacted bulk supplements customer service by e-mail (thanks Jessica!). No questions asked they shipped me out another order!! Great service!
The chlorella is exceptionally pure. I am a chiropractor in Minnesota and utilize whole foods personally and in practice. Very nutrient dense product, can be used to chelate heavy metals. I plan to order more of your products and hopefully mix your greens, milk thistle and many others. Glad I found you!

I noticed a difference.
What to mix it in is my only question.

I bought this with some Spirulina.(which was a bit easier to on the taste buds) The product is defiantly a great option to add to one's health regiment. Like spirulina it offers an abundance of good for you qualities and if you dont know much about Chlorella read up on its benifits. Anywho taste of this product is really rough. I like the effects and its fine once its in ones gullet but I couldn't find anything to mix with it that it didn't overpower flavor wise. I'll be capsuling them from here on out. That being said i have a sensitive pallet when it comes to aquatic matter it seems. For most persons it probally isn't as noticeable. Quick shipping also.
So take a swim in the deep blue sea and enjoy some blue green algae and if your like me put it in a capsule for nulified taste.
