Spirulina is a blue-green algae and chlorella is a green algae. Both contain chlorophyll, protein, b vitamins, phytonutrients, active enzymes, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins A, C, E and K, and minerals. Algae is good for the heart, is an anti-inflammatory and helps alkalize the body.
Because it is so healthy, I try to take spirulina and or chlorella 3-5 times a week. I dissolve 1/4 tsp of each into 3 cups of water, stir and drink. Or I fill vegetable capsules with the powder and take them as pills. Either way, I love algae!!
Sometimes I add a tiny bit 1/8-1/4 tsp to raw foods. Foods to add algae to: guacamole, any green juice or smoothie, mint chocolate chip frozen yogurt (recipe coming), salads and more!
*Make sure to buy good quality algae without any additives
