Chlorella: Super Food for Healing and DetoxChlorella is a super-food that offers so many detoxification and health boosting qualities that it is hard to imagine how or why it seems to be under the radar for many holistic health advocates. Chlorella is single cell algae that can be produced in open pools of fresh water with lots of exposure to sunlight. Since each cell can only be seen through a microscope, it is categorized as a microalgae. Researchers in the West have become increasingly aware of its extremely high nutrient density over the past 100 plus years. In 2016, the journal Current Pharmaceutical Design published a review, Chlorella vulgaris: A Multifunctional Dietary Supplement with Diverse Medicinal Properties. They stated: "Clinical trials have suggested that supplementation with C. vulgaris can ameliorate … hyperglycemia, and protect against oxidative stress, cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease." Chlorella is not some sort of exaggerated super-food fad; chlorella could replace a lot of supplements that are not as natural.
