Chlorella:  Usage, Dosage, and Benefits

How To Take Chlorella

Chlorella is the freshwater green algae taking the world by storm as the newest superfood. Grown primarily in Japan and Taiwan, chlorella has a myriad of health and wellness benefits to take advantage of. Because of the plant make-up, chlorella as a plant can’t be digested by humans. Supplements are specially configured from the plant to allow us to gain the remarkable benefits of chlorella.


 Chlorella contains over 20 vitamins and minerals (like A, D, and active B12), amino acids, Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), and more chlorophyll than any other plant or food. Chlorella supports the healthy functioning of your immune system and the natural waste elimination process of your body. Overall Chlorella provides many nutrients needed for your daily life.

Vitamins D: Chlorella provides Vitamin D for your body to use in many ways. Vitamin D is known to be important for bone strength and health, as it aids the body's absorption of calcium. 

Iron: Chlorella is a great source of Iron, which can strengthen the immune system and stimulate cell renewal within the body. Iron boosts hemoglobin which prevents anemia. Iron has also been shown to reduce fatigue and improve concentration. Adding more Iron to your body through your chlorella supplement will benefit multiple facets of your body.

Active B12: Chlorella contains Vitamin B12. This vitamin is commonly associated with hair, skin and nail health, but can also boost mood, energy, and anemia prevention. Chlorella is one of the only known plant sources to contain bioavailable B12, also known as Active B12, making it the perfect supplement for vegans and vegetarians. 

Chlorophyll: Chlorophyll is found in all plants, but is especially high in chlorella. In fact, chlorella has more chlorophyll per gram than any other plant. Chlorophyll can aid the body’s natural detoxification process as well as assist immune system functions. Adding this nutrient to your diet can help improve internal processes.

How to Take Chlorella:

 Now that you know the incredible benefits, it’s time to learn how to get chlorella into your every day diet. Because the freshwater green algae has a hard cell wall that can’t be digested by humans, chlorella undergoes a process to get through the cell wall so the benefits can be absorbed. Processed chlorella is then provided through supplements for human intake. 

Sun Chlorella uses a unique process called DYNO®-Mill to pulverize the cell wall and ensure maximum digestibility. Sun Chlorella is actually one of the most digestible chlorellas on the market and comes in tablets, granules, and powder. So, you can choose the type of supplement that works best for you and reap the benefits of chlorella.

Tablets: A common way to take many vitamins and supplements, Sun Chlorella provides the advantages of the chlorella plant in convenient tablets. These can be swallowed with water or a beverage of your choice. While not required, they can also be taken with meals. You can optimize which beverages or foods are most comfortable for you to take chlorella with overtime. 

Granules: A less common form of chlorella supplement is that of granules. Sun Chlorella’s granules play the middle ground between tablets and powder. Granules can be swallowed with water, mixed into foods, or eaten naturally. The versatility of granules allows you to experiment with your favorite intake method, or to rotate your regime.

Powder: Another common way chlorella is provided is through powder. This form allows for versatility in consumption and full control of volume. The powder can be cooked into spaghetti sauce, blended into fruit smoothies, or sprinkled over avocado toast. You can choose exactly how much powder to mix into your foods and how often, letting you take advantage of adaptability.

Other: Along with the main supplement forms, Sun Chlorella provides alternate products that can be added to, or rotated with, your chlorella supplement intake. For the same benefits, check out the Chlorella Udon Noodles. Add them to your favorite recipes or make a new meal based around the nutritious pasta. For more concentrated Chlorella Growth Factor (CFG), a unique nucleotide-peptide complex that may help support cellular repair and renewal, check out the liquid Sun Wakasa Gold Plus® or  if you’d like to hone in on immune defenses, look to Well Well Wow


Regular intake of your chlorella supplement will provide the most substantial results. Serving amount and frequency will vary based on many personal factors, such as age or stage of life. Keep in mind that each body will have different absorption capabilities, physiological reactions, and starting health levels that will affect the results of chlorella supplement use. All health history and personal concerns should be addressed with a primary care physician prior to use.

But how much should you take? Chlorella is typically measured in milligrams or grams. Tablets usually come in 200mg or 500mg, granules in 3 gram packs, and powders in 6 gram packs. Most adults take between 3 and 6 grams of chlorella every day, while children take an individual amount. Between the ages of 2 and 15, children should take the number of 200mg tablets that corresponds to their age. For example, you should give a 3-year old 3 (200mg) Sun Chlorella Tablets. However, we encourage you to consult with your pediatrician for infants below the age of 2 before adding any natural vitamins or supplements to their diets. For children and adults alike, it is always a good idea to talk with your doctor about their recommendations for supplements based on your health history and current medical conditions.

When beginning chlorella supplements, start with a small amount to give your body time to adjust to the extra nutrients and internal-process aides. Every couple of days you can increase your intake until you are at your desired dosage. Adding the amazing benefits of Sun Chlorella to your body slowly will allow for the greatest internal harmony and easiest system regulation.

During this introductory period you can also introduce chlorella at different times of the day to find the best fit for you. You may want to explore different intake methods, such as with a meal or with water until you find the perfect fit for your daily life.

As you continue to take in the marvelous benefits of chlorella supplements, you can improve your overall health and wellness. You body can achieve a stronger immune system, a supported natural waste elimination process, and increased nutrients to aide in all body processes. Chlorella is the superfood your body needs, and Sun Chlorella can provide the supplements you want.
