SPEED UP YOUR METABOLISM AND BOOST YOUR PROTEIN INTAKE WITH CHLORELLA
Chlorella is a green single-celled freshwater alga originally found in rivers and lakes in East Asia. Unicellular algae are among the oldest forms of plant life on earth. They are tiny little plants without roots, leaves or stems. Nowadays, edible chlorella is mainly cultivated in freshwater ponds.
Chlorella has a number of healthy nutrients. It is a source of proteins, unsaturated fatty acids, dietary fibres, vitamins, and minerals. It contains particularly high levels of the antioxidants vitamin C and beta-carotene. In addition, chlorella is very rich in protein – about 60% of its nutritional content is protein. Chlorella also contains all eight essential amino acids the body needs for building and maintaining its functions and muscles.
