It’s amazing what a little green algae can do to make your life sing! Chlorella is a single-celled green freshwater algae that is packed with nutritious benefits! In fact, chlorella is so nutritious it is considered to be a superfood and often referred to as the King of Superfoods. Here’s how this nutritional powerhouse can help you stay healthy in not just one or two different ways, but more than 9!
What makes chlorella so nutritious? Chlorella is considered a microalgae. This microalgae contains Vitamin A, Zinc, Iron, Magnesium, and B Vitamins. Chlorella contains so much in such a little amount, which is why it has so many amazing health benefits.
As a doctor who has practiced medicine for over three decades, I continue to be amazed at the broad spectrum and rich nutrition this little algal supplement offers us! If you’re eager to make some healthy changes in your life, chlorella is an unbeatable deal and an indispensable tool.
Here are 9 different ways this nutritional powerhouse can help you stay healthy:
Preliminary research suggests that chlorella may help the body’s natural purification process. Your body naturally eliminates some stressors we face every day from the food we eat to the environment we live in. Aiding natural detoxification can lead to improved overall wellness and happiness. After all, who doesn't feel happier with less stressors affecting their body? 
1. Helps Support the Body’s Natural Purification Process
2. Supports a Healthy Immune System
3. May Support Red Blood Cell Formation
4. Supports Your Energy
5. Gives You Glowing, Healthy-looking Skin
6. Supports Eye Health
With its carotenoids like beta-carotene and lutein, chlorella may help benefit your overall eye health.
According to the American Optometric Association, recent studies recommend 10 mg of lutein per day to keep your eyes healthy.  For every 3 grams of Sun Chlorella, you get 3 mg of lutein. Look to chlorella, because it just might help you look at everything else.
7. Supports Digestive System
Chlorella can help support a healthy digestive system. Taking 10 grams of chlorella a day has been shown in research to help reduce occasional cramps, gas, bloating and diarrhea.
In a small study, when students at Mimasake Women’s College in Japan took chlorella, they increased the frequency of bowel movements and improved the softness of their stools.
Chlorella can aid the processes your body naturally goes through for digestion, helping you to feel healthier and happier throughout your day.
8. Promotes a Healthy Liver
Your liver sequesters essential nutrients like B12, helps you metabolize fats and plays a key role in your body's natural detoxification process. So it’s important to keep this organ healthy - and chlorella can help!
9. Supports Blood Sugar
If you want additional support to maintain already normal blood sugar levels within the healthy range, chlorella can offer some peace of mind. A clinical study showed that chlorella intake of 800 mg per day resulted in noticeable reductions in fasting blood glucose levels! Help your normal blood sugar levels stay in their healthy range with the positive effects of chlorella. 
Chlorella is generally considered safe and is easily consumable. However, as with any new dietary addition, chlorella can cause potential discomfort for the first few weeks of consumption. This can include green discolored stool, stomach cramps, diarrhea, and nausea. Because chlorella is nature's richest source of naturally occurring green chlorophyll, If you do not regularly consume green vegetables in your diet, it is recommended to gradually work your way up to the daily serving. As always before starting any new health supplement, consult with your physician before consuming.
Get A Healthy Start With Sun Chlorella
Chlorella may be tiny, but it can do more for you than most foods on the planet. By taking it every day, you can enjoy healthy digestion, support for your immune system, glowing skin, and much, much more.
It’s important to note, chlorella is naturally difficult to digest due to its tough outer cell wall and so all chlorella supplements must undergo a process in order to make them digestible. Sun Chlorella will always provide you the most digestible chlorella on the market. The degree of chlorella digestibility (thus the number of health benefits received) will depend on how the chlorella is processed. Some methods produce a cracked or broken cell wall. The only way to know if your body can truly digest most of a chlorella supplement is if it’s a pulverized cell wall chlorella. Sun Chlorella promises to pulverize the cell wall of the chlorella it provides you, so you can reap the benefits of the little green algae.
