Live Superfoods Organic Chlorella Powder, 12 oz
Chlorella (chlorella vulgaris) is a single-celled freshwater alga, containing large amount of chlorophyll, the chemical that gives plants their green color. Chlorophyll is an essential compound for photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert light into chemical energy. Chlorophyll is also available in green leafy vegetables.

Chlorella contains vitamin C and carotenoids, both of which are antioxidants. Antioxidants are compounds that block the action of free radicals, activated oxygen molecules that can damage cells.
Chlorella is a potent source of vitamin B-12, a vitamin most commonly found in proteins. It also contains vitamins B-1, B-2, B-6, and Folic acid, and additional B-complex vitamins. The minerals that naturally occur in chlorella include magnesium, potassium, iron, and calcium.
Chlorella is a rich source of 19 naturally occuring amino acids, including all eight essential amino acids.
Chlorella is considered by some to be a natural "multivitamin", possessing at least 20 beneficial nutrients. Chlorella is also used by those who eat a vegan or vegetarian diet as a source of amino acids (protein) and vitamins that are often found only in proteins (such as B-12).
