Chlorella are perfect whole foods, true superfoods. They have a balanced complement of protein (60%), carbohydrates (19%), fats (6%), bio-available minerals (8%), moisture (7%). The protein, carbohydrates and fat content in Chlorella are in the correct natural ratio to one another. They are not extracts, concentrates or amalgams of vitamins and minerals that look good on paper such as the vitamin supplements that are supposed to be healthy. In reality, the body does not absorb 90% of the vitamin and mineral supplements that are sold because they are dead, their enzymes absent. Eating Chlorella, on the other hand, is like eating any other whole food such as an apple, orange or broccoli.
