The Ultimate Superfood for Gut Health + Immune Support + Detoxification

Chlorella pyrenoidosa is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Chlorella isn’t stimulating, a concern with some blue-green algae like Spirulina.

The unique qualities and essential nutrients in chlorella contribute to its power to support digestion, detoxification, a balanced gut microbiome, the immune system1, and healthy aging. And it all comes from a single ingredient, a single-celled organism—pure and simple.*

Key Powerhouse Nutrients

Chlorella nutrient Chlorophyll

This pigment is responsible for chlorella’s intense green hue, but it’s more than just a pretty color: Chlorophyll supports natural detoxification. Clinical trials show that chlorophyll binds with toxins and potentially interferes with their absorption in tissue2,3,4. It’s also acts as a potent antioxidant and an internal deodorant5,6.*

Chlorella nutrient Chlorella Growth Factor

Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)
Chlorella’s unique complex of proteins, vitamins, and sugars is thought to support the growth of healthy cells. CGF works in tandem with dietary fiber and chlorophyll to nourish the cells of the GI tract, contributing to the growth of beneficial intestinal flora for a more balanced gut microbiome.*

Chlorella nutrient Carotenoids

Another type of pigment, carotenoids play an important antioxidant support role. For instance, the carotenoids alpha- and beta-carotene support cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range7, and they convert to vitamin A, a nutrient that promotes healthy skin. The lutein and zeaxanthin in chlorella are associated with eye health.*

Chlorella nutrient Omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3 Fatty Acids
These healthy fats help support heart and brain health and may contribute to a balanced mood8.* In particular, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) from chlorella is an essential omega-3 that must be obtained through diet because the body can’t produce it on its own.*

Chlorella nutrient Protein

Chlorella includes protein, a key player in cell repair and growth. And it’s a complete or whole protein, meaning it includes all nine of the essential amino acids we need in our diet—a rare find in vegetarian food.*

Chlorella nutrient Enzymes

There are many types of enzymes in chlorella, including pepsin, one of the main digestive enzymes for breaking down protein in the gut, which helps support healthy digestion.*

The Pure Chlorella Advantage

Chlorella’s valuable nutrients are protected by strong cell walls that can’t be broken down by our digestive process. If the cell walls aren’t broken, the benefits of eating chlorella are lost. Pure Chlorella uses pressure release to crack open cell walls, an effective process that preserves all of the nutritional benefits of the algae. (Other methods like grinding or exposure to high heat or chemicals may result in loss or damage to nutrients.)

Pure Chlorella is also sunlight-grown in nutrient-enriched freshwater pools, so it produces chlorophyll and other nutrients naturally. Compare that to the fermented chlorella commonly found in some other supplements, which is cultivated in sealed tanks and treated with a solution of glucose and acetic acid to trigger chlorophyll production.

Pure Chlorella is sourced in Taiwan from one of the world’s most experienced chlorella cultivators, with a track record of quality dating back over 50 years. At peak maturity, the algae is filtered, pressure released, dehydrated, and pressed into tablets at a pristine, state-of-the-art facility.

There are no binders, fillers, animal products, gluten, or soy in Pure Chlorella. It is certified organic and undergoes rigorous third-party testing to ensure its purity and quality. Each batch of Pure Chlorella is evaluated for contaminants and verified pure by a Certificate of Analysis.

Dr. Rawls’ Formulation Notes

Notes on Chlorella

Formulating chlorella is a unique process that’s all about sourcing the purest, most potent chlorella possible. Based on my extensive research, here’s what mattered most in my search.


Natural sunlight is the best way to ensure chlorella is producing optimal levels of chlorophyll and other nutrients.

The Right Strain

Chlorella pyrenoidosa (aka Chlorella sorokiniana) has the strongest detoxification properties of all the strains.


No chemicals; no grinding. Pressure release is the cleanest, most natural way to preserve chlorella’s nutrients.

Suggested Use

As with any new food or supplement, start slowly and gradually increase the serving to find the best amount for you. The typical maintenance serving for Pure Chlorella is 10-15 tablets, twice a day. For additional support, we suggest taking 20 tablets, twice a day. Pure Chlorella can be taken any time of day. For best results, take with food.

Honest Labeling:

At Vital Plan, we pride ourselves on using clear, honest labeling for each product. Every batch of chlorella tablets is quality-tested multiple times throughout the manufacturing process, then sent to third-party labs for verification of ingredient purity and label claims.

I chose it because of its probable purity. However, I have no idea whether it is doing me any good because anything I take that is supposed to "help" instead gives me rampant diarrhea. I don't know whether the chlorella is doing it or not, but I cut the dose from 15 to 3 in hopes of tracking it down. I like the taste, but cannot arrive at a conclusion at this time, hence the "average" answers.
