Not only are lots of vitamins and minerals present, but they are present in significant numbers. Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C and E are all present. To find all these vitamins in the real levels in which they are found in Chlorella is far and above what any manufactured supplement will provide. A word of caution tho, in recently times scientists, have discovered that the vitamin B12 that is found in Chlorella isn't very bio-available; meaning the body finds it hard to breakdown and absorb.

    Chlorella V Spirulina

    We often get asked which is best or which do we prefer between spirulina and chlorella, and it is not that kind of choice. They are two very similar products with very similar uses. Both are excellent at what they do, and you should choose which one to use based on your needs and circumstances.

    There is an article dedicated to spirulina that can be read here. We are firmly suggest you do so before using either of these nutrition supplements to be sure you are taking the one which is most suited to your needs.

    In brief, spirulina probably has the greater nutritional value, but chlorella is a better antioxidant, being particularly good at removing heavy metals that build up in the body, such as mercury. Mercury gets into the body from a wide verity of sources it can be in our food, for example, tuna has high in mercury levels, to vaccinations, and the pots and pans used to cook the food we eat.

    The reason why we have so much information on our website is so our customers can make informed decisions about the nutrition they choose to ingest.
