How does chlorella compare with barley, wheat grass and alfalfa?
Many “green” foods are good sources of chlorophyll, but by comparison, chlorella is the highest natural source of chlorophyll. The results of a recent laboratory test show that Sun Chlorella has five times more milligrams of chlorophyll per serving than wheat grass, 12 times more than barley, and nearly 20 times more than alfalfa. In fact, two to three percent of chlorella is chlorophyll – the highest level of any edible plant. And unlike wheat grass, barley and alfalfa, chlorella is a whole food. The whole plant gives us the advantage of all the protoplasmic elements that aid in the growth and development of our cells. In fact, no other vitamin or mineral can ever replace the value of a whole food. back to top Q: What’s the difference between chlorella and spirulina? A: Chlorella contains up to 10 times more chlorophyll than spirulina. Studies conducted by a leading microbiologist demonstrate that spirulina is a more primitive organism than chlorella and that it lacks a true nucleus.
