Chlorella compared to Spirulina

Spirulina offers an abundance of fatty acids including one of the rarest forms, gamma linoleum acid. Spirulina is also rich in vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, as well as the minerals potassium, calcium, chromium, copper, iron and magnesium. Thanks to these nutrients, Spirulina has been shown to help your body fight infection and allergic reactions. It may also protect against cancer and lower bad cholesterol, all while raising good cholesterol and aiding in weight loss.


Chlorella is very rich in the cartenoids beta-carotene, alpha-carotene and lutein. It’s also an abundant source of vitamins B, C, D, E, K, and the minerals phosphorous, calcium, zinc, magnesium. Like spirulina, chlorella is rich in protein 60-70 % and contains more protein per ounce than a serving of steak. This superfood also offers a rich source of healthy fats including oleic acid.

Chlorella has been shown to support healthy hormonal function and good cardiovascular health, negate the effects of chemotherapy and radiation, lower blood pressure and bad cholesterol, and excel in removing harmful toxins from your body.


Clearly these superfoods are similar, but they do have marked differences, starting with their looks. Alver Chlorella is a yellow algae, whereas spirulina is blue-green in color.
