Chlorella is a genus of unicellular green algae belonging to the Phylum Chlorophyta. Chlorophytes comprise a major component of the phytoplankton. Chlorella is a popular food supplement in Japan and is marketed as a nutritional supplement in the United States. Chlorella, along with wheat grass, barley grass and spirulina, are sometimes referred to as "green foods." There are several species of chlorella. Those most commonly used in nutritional supplements are Chlorella vulgaris and Chlorella pyrenoidosa.
Chlorella is a tiny, single-celled water-grown alga containing a nucleus and an enormous amount of readily available chlorophyll. It also contains protein (approximately 58 percent), carbohydrates, all of the B vitamins, vitamins C and E, amino acids, and rare trace minerals. In fact, it is virtually a complete food. It contains more vitamin B12 than liver does, plus a considerable amount of beta-carotene. It has a strong cell wall, however, which makes it difficult to gain access to its nutrients. Consequently, it requires factory processing to be effective.
Chlorella is one of the few edible species of water-grown algae. The chlorophyll in chlorella can help speed the cleansing of the bloodstream. Chlorella is very high in RNA and DNA, and has been found to protect against the effects of ultraviolet radiation. Studies show that chlorella is an excellent source of protein, especially for people who cannot or who choose not to eat meat.

Dosage of Chlorella
There are various forms of chlorella, including capsules, tablets, softgels and granules. Most chlorella marketed in the U.S. is grown in Japan and Taiwan and is processed into the various supplemental forms. Chlorella is marketed as a stand-alone supplement or combined with other so-called "green foods," such as wheat grass, barley grass and spirulina. There is no typical dosage.
