In the following, we will tell you everything you need to know about chlorella. We explain what benefits chlorella can have for you and how much you should generally take. Did you know that it is important for the human blood circulation?


Chlorella comes from Latin and means "small, green thing". It is a microalgae that belongs to highly developed living organisms. The algae cannot be seen with the naked eye, but they have valuable powers and survived for millions of years. Chlorella is one of the most studied organisms. For this reason, there is a lot of research on the health effects of alga. The best-known type of freshwater algae is Chlorella Vulgaris. It is spread worldwide and is found mainly in stagnant and flowing waters. The microalga is mainly used in food supplements and cosmetics. (Chlorella, uses, side effects, and more)


Chlorella has a unique nutritional value due to the high content of proteins, fatty acids and secondary plant compounds. It contains all water-soluble vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, biotin and vitamin C), fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) and many other bioactive plant substances (Microalgae in Health and Disease Prevention) (Chlorella, uses, side effects and more).

It also contains some minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium. Chlorella is also rich in trace elements such as iron, zinc, manganese, copper and selenium. The freshwater algae is a significant source of protein and is also iodine-free (Microalgae in Health and Disease Prevention).

But our Eat Your Super Greens Vitamins also contain chlorella.


Chlorella has a very high chlorophyll content. Such a high concentration has never been measured in any other plant. Because chlorophyll is identical to the human blood pigment haemoglobin, there is no better nutrient for our blood. Along with organic minerals, chlorophyll ensures our blood is clean and vital. This is the only way the blood can nourish all body tissues in the best possible way. 

Due to the high amount of chlorophyll, chlorella protects the liver from countless toxins. The fibre of the alga strengthens the circulatory system as well as the digestive system. In addition, it activates carbohydrate metabolism by accelerating glucose transport so that the obtained energy is available more quickly. It also assists in restoring the acid-base balance. Chlorella can positively affect the appearance of the skin in various ways; it can improve wound healing or help with inflammatory skin diseases, such as acne or neurodermatitis (Microalgae in Health and Disease Prevention).

The algae also positively affects the immune system and can protect the body from bacteria, viruses or fungi when taken continuously. It also positively affects blood formation and can reduce high blood pressure. In addition, senile dementia can be slowed down, and chlorella supports kidney function and can prevent DNA damage (Chlorella, uses, effects and more).


"Chlorella is not just a microalgae. You can not underestimate its effect. Because it is rich in beta-carotene, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, E and vitamin K. So, it plays a great role, among others, for the immune system and the nervous system. It also has an antioxidant effect and can protect cells from oxidative stress. If you don't know about chlorella yet, you should definitely try it and be convinced of its effects."
