  1. Thank you for this review on Chlorella, I have heard of it but I din’t know it had so many health benefits. Your articles says it helps to prevent ulcers, do you know if it would be ok for someone who already has ulcers to take this, and would you recommend powder form or pills?

      Hi Pam, I would really check with your doctor first about the ulcers just in case. I take Chlorella in the form of tablets, as I hate the taste of the powder. Some people put the powder in their smoothies.

      Thanks for reading

    It’s amazing how many benefits such seemingly insignificant lifeforms have for us. I mean, it’s algae! That’s amazing, though.
    Thank you for the informative blog on Chlorella. I may try taking it as a supplement one of these days.
    Since it is mostly grown in Japan or Taiwan, is it still considered organic, or has there been some gene tampering with the plant?
    Anyway, great post. take care!
