What is Chlorella and why should we include it in our diets?
Chlorella is a type of green algae that is single celled and usually found in freshwater lakes, ponds and rivers.
The health benefits range from reducing blood sugar and cholesterol, to assisting in lowering oxidative stress, supporting detoxification to protecting the heart and liver.
Fair warning though, if you are new to the powder variety – it is a strong flavour that can take some getting used to. If using it in a juice start small and increase the portion as you adjust to it. Otherwise the tablet variety is a quick and easy way to get the full benefits of Chlorella (without the aftertaste!)
