Spirulina & Chlorella, when taken together as a supplement, provide a unique balance of green superfoods, as the combination boasts complete protein and a wide array of vitamins and minerals, some of which you can't get easily from a plant-based diet. They both have research supporting their potential to benefit the immune system, making them good supplement choices for avoiding illness when taken together. There is also evidence that spirulina can boost various performance markers.
SPIRULINA & CHLORELLA
To the uninitiated, this edible algae product may seem like nothing more than pond scum—another example of newfangled, hippie-dippy, pseudo-nutrition. But your old colleague (rest his soul, by the way) would be wrong. In fact, Spirulina & Chlorella are bonafide superfoods with the potential to not only restore your body but the planet at large, making it a more than worthwhile addition to your list of healthy habits.

One of the biggest environmental problems the world is facing is how to continue supplying food for a growing population without running out of farmland. Unlike our other air breathing food sources, spirulina & chlorella are cheap and easy to raise for food. An Oxford study determined that spirulina & chlorella require the least amount of land per unit of protein and unit of human digestible energy, meaning that they need less land to produce the same amount of protein and energy as livestock does. To that end, spirulina & chlorella are often used in feed for livestock and fish/shellfish farming.
