Both micro-algae types are very popular, both look similar and taste similar. So it is no wonder, we often get asked what the main differences between chlorella and spirulina are, especially by customers wishing to know which of these two superfoods would benefit them the most. So let get to know these new-age foods better
Chlorella is a green unicellular freshwater algae that is rich in protein, vitamins (including vitamin B12), minerals (especially iron), amino and nucleic acids. Chlorella algae boast a high chlorophyll content that helps cleanse our blood and tissue, making it particularly useful for detoxification
Chlorella also contains an extremely strong concentration of alpha, beta and gamma PPAR's (Peroxisome Proliferator Activated Receptors), which are known to regulate our metabolism, strengthen our immune system and promote general all round good health.
Spirulina is a blue-green unicellular freshwater algae packed with fibre, protein, vitamins (including vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and K), essential minerals (including iron, calcium and magnesium), trace minerals, essential fatty acids, nucleic acids (both RNA and DNA), polysaccharides and antioxidants. Spirulina is low in calories and a complete source of protein. It has recently been linked to demonstrable weight loss.
The DQS Team is working on bring the full potential of micro-algae into the modern life style. We believe these micro-algae are solutions for many problem in society like obesity, diabetic and cancers.
