Studies on Chlorella have highlighted its high amount of amino acids (protein components) as well as the presence of vitamin B12, which makes itespecially suitable for vegetarians and vegans as a natural food supplement.
Up to 10-20 tablets of Chlorella may be consumed daily for 1-3 months. In some cases (e.g., vegetarian/vegan diets, confirmed vitamin B12 deficiency), this dose may be increased.
Ideally, Chlorella should be taken in the morning. If forgotten, however, it can still be taken throughout the day.
It is important to note that Chlorella’s effects will be more significant if taken on a constant daily basis.
2. Who should take Chlorella?
Anyone who is seeking detoxification. With its many benefits, Chlorella is considered a superfood that will help just about anyone. It is especially beneficial for:
- Vegetarians and vegans
Chlorella is an excellent source of vitamin B12, which is not present in any common vegetables.
Also called cobalamin, this vitamin is mostly found in animal products. It cannot be synthesized by the body, and thus must be provided by one’s diet. The amount of vitamin B12 in Chlorella makes it an excellent supplement to vegetarian or vegan diets.
- People suffering from intoxication
Thanks to its detoxifying power, Chlorella is particularly recommended for people who live or work in polluted environments, for smokers, and for people exposed to heavy metals (e.g., from dental amalgams, fatty fish consumption, etc.).
