Also known as: Chlorella, Blue green algae
One of the earths oldest living organisms, chlorella is a genus of single celled green algae that grow in the sunniest parts of freshwater bodies. A potent source of chlorophyll – the life blood of all plants, our Organic Chlorella Powder is a nutrient dense powerhouse containing a wide spectrum of essential vitamins and minerals.
It is also a complete protein (containing all 9 of the essential amino acids) with a whopping 70% protein per 100g, making this superfood a great protein source for vegans. Proteins are the building blocks of the body used to make muscles, organs, tendons and skin. Also present are the full spectrum of B vitamins, these are important for brain health and protection of the central nervous system.
High in the essential minerals; calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium and phosphorus – these elements work together to promote strong bones and teeth, maintain blood pressure, healthy immune function and the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Finally, high in biotin which activates a broad spectrum of biological processes related to macronutrient metabolism, chlorella is a highly detoxifying food which is best introduced slowly into the diet to avoid excessive cleansing symptoms.
Integrating Superfoods into your daily diet is simple and easy. Superfoods are particularly dense in nutrients, and free from any bulking agents or fillers. By adding superfoods to your daily diet you can fortify your food with super nutrition. Try replacing breakfast with a superfood smoothie. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk, alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices.
Then additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties, the powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended or shaken until fully mixed in. Superfoods can be easily added to breakfast cereals such as porridge, muesli or granola. The powders, berries, grains, seeds and nuts can also be added to soups, salads, stews, curries, and used as toppings for any meal.

The Chlorella used to make Indigo Herbs Organic Chlorella Powder is exclusively grown in fresh water which is pumped from deep beneath the ground and then filtered to guarantee absolute purity. During growth there are no chemical or artificial amendments used to generate faster reproduction. This means that the Chlorella takes about 6 weeks to grow before it is harvested. It is then hand washed, checked and tested for heavy metals and other pollutants before being put through a fast drying process to capture as much of the nutritional content as possible. To ensure that the cell wall is broken for maximum enrichment, the dry Chlorella is then milled before being made ready for shipping.
