Chlorella, Superfood or Hype?

Chlorella is touted as the new superfood in numerous books and Internet health sites. Claims of miraculous anti-aging and health benefits abound. If the world truly has a superfood, this may be it. However, chlorella benefits are not a new discovery. Its amazing potential as a potent food and energy source was discovered in 1931.

Research History

In 1931, German Biochemist, Otto Heinrich Warburg studied this distinctive algae for its photosynthesis properties. Chlorella multiplies rapidly with little effort due to its photosynthetic efficiency.

While his research seemed to disappear, in the 1940s interest in this wholefood soared to epic heights since it demonstrated potential as a perfect food source. The growing concern of population growth and the lack of food in the late 1940s and early 1950s, prompted  extensive research to determine the viability of algae as a nutrient dense food source.

This extensive research was promoted in many scientific magazines and newsletters of the time. The nutrient dense benefits of chlorella were confirmed. However, the research abruptly ended as new agricultural technologies developed to quell the concern of food shortages and starvation.

What is Chlorella?

It is a form of algae. While the term “algae” does not conjure up a particularly flattering picture, several forms of algae are known to be nutrient rich. It has amazing properties and contains chlorophyll-a and chloryphyll-b. These pigments allow chlorella to multiply rapidly through photosynthesis.  

The interest in superfood is currently a hot topic among consumers and health advocates. With rising rates of deadly diseases such as cancer, consumers and health advocates are concerned chemical-rich processed foods, polluted environments and poor eating habits are to blame. These concerns have consumers searching for alternative healthy food sources.

Chlorella, Superfood or Hype?

This nutrient rich alga contains:

* 10 percent vitamins and minerals
* 45 percent protein
* 20 percent carbohydtrate
* 20 percent fat
* 5 percent fiber

**These numbers vary depending where and how the crop is cultivated.

For vegans and vegetarians, this alga is an exceptional health supplement. In addition, this algae is one of the few sources of natural vitamin D. This is important since most products on the market such as milk are fortified with synthetic vitamin D. The body does not readily absorb the synthetic version.
