Chlorella FAQ

Chlorella products: frequently asked questions

What is the difference between Spirulina and Chlorella?

The difference between these two algae is the construction of their cell walls. The cell walls of Chlorella – and any “genuine” plant forms – consist of cellulose. When the digestion process is finished the cases of the Chlorella alga are empty, meaning able to absorb impurities, which afterwards are being excreted together with the indigestible case.

Spirulina does not prove this purifying effect, because their cell walls are digestible.

Before all, Chlorella alga is exceptional because of its high amount of iron (1-2mg/g), beta-carotin and Vitamin B12.

As suppliers of nutrients both algae are equally valuable.

Does regular use of Chlorella alga cause any side effects?

Up to the present day no side effects or interactions have been registered. Even after the use of many years Chlorella had not revealed any unwanted effects.
