Benefits of spirulina and chlorella

Spirulina & Chlorella

It’s a fact that our diet needs to be more alkalising. This requires an increased intake of fruits and vegetables, particularly leafy varieties and those rich in chlorophyll, a pigment involved in photosynthesis that allows plants to absorb energy from sunlight.

Both Spirulina and Chlorella are green superfoods which contain a breadth of nutrients concentrated into one serving, including chlorophyll. Spirulina is derived from a single-celled, blue-green algae. Growing only in alkaline waters, it has a high chlorophyll content and also contains alkalising minerals; Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium & Zinc. For this reason, Spirulina is considered alkalising for the body and can help neutralise excess acids.
