Numerous studies validate chlorella's 'superfood' status


Chlorella is a genus of single-celled, green algae that grow in the sunniest parts of freshwater bodies. According to Dr. Beth M. Ley, author of the book Chlorella: The Ultimate Green Food, it is one of the earth's oldest living organisms and has been harvested as a food source for thousands of years.

By the beginning of the 21st century, chlorella had earned "superfood" status. This article contains a list of studies proving that this status is well-deserved.

Chia seeds are a superfood treasure


Many people know that flax seed is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and will be happy to know that they have another available source in the chia seed. This tiny seed has many advantages over flax; it doesn't need to be ground to access the nutrients, and the seeds can be stored for long periods of time without deteriorating. Chia is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, even more so than flax. The ALA (alpha linolenic fatty acid) that is in chia seeds is the only known essential omega-3 fatty acid that the body can't produce on its own. Omega-3 is found in foods such as chia seed, flax seed, flax oil, olive oil, walnuts, fish, kale, spinach, cauliflower and broccoli to name a few.
