One customer wrote to us recently:
Wheat grass and spirulina vs chlorella?
I own spirulina and take it every morning as well as fresh wheat grass juice that we grow, i know chlorella is better at removing and binding heavy metals which is what I’m looking for or a detox. Is it really worth buying chlorella if i take the other two. I find chlorella more expensive but spirulina has its pros compare to it and so does chlorella. Should I just stick to wheat grass and spirulina. I eat a very healthy diet.
Chlorella, a green algae, is far more powerful than wheat grass, or any other grass for that matter. In fact, it doesn’t even come close. Spirulina, a blue-green algae, and chlorella are the most powerful wholefoods known. If you are taking either one of them there is no reason to take wheat grass. The only time I consume wheat grass is when it is juiced fresh. There is nothing wrong with consuming powdered wheat grass, but it has only a fraction of the nutrition potential of either chlorella or spirulina. The only time I consume wheat grass is when it’s juiced fresh. Otherwise, I’ll take algae any day.
