Chlorella, spirulina, astaxanthin: what are they?
Chlorella and spirulina are two superfoods, "micro-algae" with numerous health benefits, 100% natural, consumed as food supplements or incorporated in cooking. Natural astaxanthin is a very powerful antioxidant concentrate extracted from the micro-algae haematococcus pluvialis.
How many tablets should I take for optimal effectiveness?
Each person is different and finds his or her dosage according to his or her needs, which may vary over time. For chlorella and spirulina, health professionals recommend a daily intake of 10 to 15 small tablets (or 6 to 10 medium-sized tablets), in a three-month cure or throughout the year. The first 2 or 3 tablets a day are then gradually increased to the desired dosage. The doses can be higher in a "detox" approach.
Why choose eChlorial micro algae ?
We are a small family business whose main priority is Quality. We personally consume every day the products we sell. World renowned chefs use our products for their impeccable quality. While 99% of the world production of micro algae comes from Asia, our products are grown in Europe.
We have a very strict Quality selection policy : eChlorial chlorella, spirulina and astaxanthin are grown in a perfectly protected environment, free from any external pollution. Our micro-algae are all produced in Europe, in a controlled environment, by our rigorously selected producers. The production is rigorously monitored according to the European standards. Each batch is analyzed in microbiology. The absence of heavy metals and traces of residues are regularly controlled by independent laboratories. eChlorial has been the French expert in chlorella and micro-algae for nearly 20 years.
Our commitments: why the choice of products grown in Europe ?
For almost 20 years now we have been distributing micro algae that are exclusively grown in Europe in the best possible conditions. Why? ♳ Quality and traceability: the standards and rigors of cultivation in Europe guarantee a high quality product. Those are different on other continents and very difficult to verify and supervise. ♴ Environmental impact: reduction of the carbon footprint via the limitation of the distances traveled by the goods. ♵ Circular economy: by buying European products, you make European professionals and fellow citizens work: from their production to their final destination. If you too share these same values, you are in the right place.
What is the difference between chlorella and spirulina?
Chlorella is a unicellular micro-alga and spirulina is a cyanobacteria also called "blue algae". They have very complementary "health" properties. Read the complete article on the differences between chlorella & spirulina.
Can I take chlorella, spirulina and astaxanthin at the same time?
Of course, the spirulina + chlorella cocktail is a powerful dopant that will provide energy and stimulate your natural defenses thanks to their precious nutrients. An often preferred dosage is 3 grams (10 small (0,3g) or 6 medium (0,5g) tablets) of chlorella in the morning (on an empty stomach if possible) and 10 tablets (small 0,3g) of spirulina in the evening.
Chlorella and spirulina are foods that can be consumed as a cure or throughout the year according to one's needs. Astaxanthin is a super antioxidant that is generally used in a 2 to 3 month cure. It can be consumed with chlorella and spirulina. It is taken during meals.
How to store these micro-algae ?
Keep your chlorella, spirulina and astaxanthin in their original boxes in a dark place (closet) and at a temperature lower than 30 degrees Celsius. The expiration date of 3 years maximum is indicated at the back of the box.
Taste and smell
Although some people like to chew the tablets, most prefer to swallow them!
Chlorella and spirulina have a herbal or algae smell because as their name indicates, they are algae. Micro-algae or products based on micro-algae are natural products and therefore by definition unique! Just like wines, depending on the vintage, slight differences in color and smell can be observed between batches. If you take too long to consume your tablets, their colors may fade with time. You can still consume them without risk even after the date indicated on the back of the boxes (optimal consumption date), but their characteristics will not be optimal anymore.
