How much chlorella and spirulina would you need to take to consume them exclusively on their own? Thanks, Joe O.
Good question! That would depend on how long you were going to do that for? I fasted on 50 grams of chlorella & spirulina for 10 days and lost around 8 lb. I felt great. However, if I wanted to live on them long term you would need to take a lot more, probably around 200 – 300 grams a day. Chlorella and spirulina are the only two foods on earth that you can live on exclusively and know you are getting ALL your basic nutritional needs.Ideally, you want to eat as great a variety of foods in your diet as possible since every foods contains unique enzymes and nutrients. However, if you cook a food its enzymes will be destroyed, which is why I only eat raw fruits and vegetables. No other food contains the nutrients that are contained in a lemon, or garlic, or an apple, etc. But as survival foods, nothing beats Chlorella and Spirulina, the two most powerful foods on earth.
