You might be surprised to hear that chlorella is not some distant relative of Cinderella.
In fact, it’s a type of algae which promotes detoxification and helps the liver deal with excess toxins – making it a great little number to knock back after a heavy night on the tiles.
We’ve got the low-down on the Incredible Hulk of the super food world…
According to Lewis, chlorella is the “number one algae for liver detoxification” as it removes alcohol, heavy metals and environmental pollutants from your system.
Jam-packed of vitamins, minerals and nutrients, chlorella is great for the body – inside and out.
Katya Igumentseva, co-founder of Organic Burst, says: “It’s great if you live in a city, drink alcohol and coffee, eat non-organic food, or do a job where you’re exposed to chemicals.
“Chlorella is full of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that have fantastic effects on your body, including radiant skin with Vitamin B2 and healthy hair with biotin and copper.
“If you’re tired of catching colds, Vitamins B6, B12 and iron from chlorella give the immune system support.”
How To Eat (Or Drink) It
To drink chlorella (who doesn’t love a tasty algae-filled beverage?) stir the powder into water and add a good squeeze of lemon to tone down the taste.
Additionally, blend into your favourite smoothies or juices.
Failing that, you can purchase easy-to-swallow tablets or granules that can be sprinkled onto salads and dips.
