Chlorella is a single-celled, freshwater algae, of which there are over 30 different species – with chlorella vulgaris and chlorella pyrenoidosa being the most commonly researched. Since chlorella has a hard cell wall, which humans cannot digest – it must be taken as a supplement.
Chlorella contains an amazing amount of essential nutrients including; vitamins, macrominerals, trace minerals, essential fatty acids such as GLA, complete proteins, nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), chlorophyll, and a vast spectrum of phytochemicals. Packing all these essential nutrients means chlorella has been shown to have a wide range of beneficial effects. Although evidence is limited, chlorella has been shown to enhance the immune response in animals and humans, with one study showing markers of increased immune activity when healthy adults took chlorella. Several studies have proposed that chlorella supplements may help to decrease cholesterol, with one showing that taking 5-10g of chlorella daily lowered total, as well as LDL cholesterol in people with high blood pressure.
