Chlorella is a type of single cell algae which has been around as long as the earth! Our Chlorella Powder is the cracked cell wall variety which makes its easier to absorb the nutrients it contains. There is more than 20 species of this seaweed.
Due to the tiny size of the algae it was not until the microscope was invented after the 19th century that Chlorella was first discovered. It was discovered by the Dutch microbiologist, Dr. Beijerinck, in 1890, who named it Chlorella. Chlorella has a high content of nucleic acid which is the building blocks for our DNA and RNA. Chlorella is also known as a complete protein due to having all the essential amino acids.
