Chlorella is a single-celled, freshwater algae, which is grown in various warm areas of the world. Sevenhills Wholefoods’ Broken Cell Wall Chlorella, of botanical variety Chlorella Vulgaris, is consumed worldwide as a dietary supplement, as about half its mass is protein, and is used widely as part of detoxification programs to reduce oxidative-stress cell damage. Chlorella is considered to be an excellent natural multivitamin, possessing at least 20 beneficial nutrients, and key in many vegan and vegetarian diets as a source of amino acids and vitamins traditionally only found in meat-based proteins.
Also, most notably present in Chlorella is an abundance of Vitamins A, B, Iron and Zinc. In addition to its antioxidant content, the nutrition in Chlorella is key in helping our nervous system, skin, heart and immune systems function correctly. Chlorella has also been known to help regulate balanced energy expenditure, keeping fatigue at bay. Our Chlorella's cell walls are broken to ensure maximum digestibility of the product's nutrient content.
We recommend 1 heaped teaspoon of Chlorella Powder mixed with water, once or twice a day, up to 5g per day. It can also be mixed with water or juice, included in a smoothie or added to food.

I trurly believe this is a super food. I mix it with wheatgrass into my bottle of mineral water and drink it throughout the day. The taste is horribly strong and in the begining I had difficulties to take it without any other fruit juice, then I got used to. Now it has been a month that I drink it and certainly see some improvements. It give me extra energy so can skip my second coffee. I have never tried this product alone, I think the taste will be still too strong.

Chlorella doesn't smell or taste good you can only help mask the taste, you can't hide it.. but this product in powder form allows you to measure whatever amount you need (check healthy doseage allowances and do not overdo it). In powder form it also works out an awful lot cheaper than in tablet form and when mixed with a fruit juice, like apple juice, it is bearable. I would suggest you only use enough juice to swallow while you can hold your breath and have another glass of pure juice to hand to drink immediately afterwards. That may sound like a lot of hard work but it does only take a minute of your time and will save you a lot of money for what is only a small amount of time with a bad taste in your mouth. The Chlorella worked on me as an anti inflammatory on the first day. It was worth the horrible taste for that alone. Pain in my ankle, knee and small of my back went until the afternoon and when it started to come back i had another half a teaspoon in orange juice and the pain went again. I bought it to use alongside Cilantro, as a detox, and that (when started in small doses) also appears to be helping me feel better (physically) than i have in a while. DO check out how to use Chlorella though and don't guess at amounts. Even natural products can have their dangers if not used properly. Delivery was very prompt and the price was affordable :)
