How to take organic chlorella powder?
A single-celled algae, chlorella is a rich source of the antioxidants vitamin C and carotenoids, B vitamins, protein, iron and chlorophyll. This "superfood" has many purported uses, including the treatment of cancer and bacterial and viral infections, enhancement of the immune system, promotion of friendly bacteria in the digestive tract, reduction of blood pressure and cholesterol, and detoxification of the blood, liver and digestive system. According to the American Cancer Society, however, there is little evidence to support these claims 1. If you're going to use chlorella, first discuss it with your doctor.
Meet with your doctor to discuss proper dosage for your needs. According to the American Cancer Society, dosage ranges from 2 grams to 15 grams per day, depending on why you are using it 1. Higher doses may be used for detoxification, reports the ACS. A 3-gram serving is about 1 teaspoon.
Mix your dosage with plain water or fruit juice. You can also add it to smoothies and green juices, suggests author and nutrition expert Jess Ainscough. If you don't like the taste of chlorella, Ainscough says it can easily be masked by adding a banana or apple to the drink. The American Cancer society reports that you can also mix chlorella powder into baked goods, such as bread or cookies 1.
Increase your dosage gradually, recommends Ainscough, especially if you are taking higher doses for detoxification purposes, as you may experience symptoms of detox. Begin with a dose of 1.5 grams for the first week, then increase it to 3 grams. Stop there or gradually increase it up to the dosage you and your doctor have decided upon.
If you're taking chlorella for detoxification purposes, Ainscough recommends drinking plenty of water -- 1 to 2 liters -- daily to aid the body in getting rid of toxins.
1.Detox - chlorella cleanses from a variety of toxins: environmental toxins, pesticides from non-organic food, alcohol, heavy metals, chemicals in cosmetics and others.
2.Clear healthy skin - chlorella contains Vitamin B2, as well as having powerful detoxification effects.
3.Healthy gut - chlorella helps normalise the gut flora.

Top 10 Easy Ways to Take Chlorella Powder
Chlorella boasts a rich supply of nutrients and antioxidants. This edible algae contains high amounts of vitamins A, B and C and the mineral iron. It's promoted as a detox agent and an immune system booster, and proponents claim it's good for your heart and digestive health. No upper limit has been determined for how much chlorella powder you can safely consume in a day. According to the American Cancer Society, herbalists recommend taking 2 to 3 grams of chlorella powder a day, which is about a teaspoon, but chlorella enthusiasts are known to take up to 15 grams a day.
1.Add It to Smoothies
You can add a spoonful of chlorella powder to any smoothie recipe. As long as you incorporate sweet ingredients like fruit or honey, you won't taste the bitterness of a little bit of chlorella. For example, combine bananas, mangoes or other fruits in a blender with water, milk or juice, and add 1 teaspoon to 1/2 tablespoon of chlorella powder. That way, you'll get the nutritional benefits of chlorella without tasting it.
2.Cook With It
You can also add chlorella powder to your food without tasting it. Add it to a vinaigrette salad dressing or even throw a teaspoon or two into a stir-fry with a sweet, spicy or sour sauce. Add 1/2 teaspoon or less to mashed potatoes, pasta dishes or other foods that don't have a strong flavor to cover up the bitter taste of chlorella. Try making a chlorella pesto sauce by combining a little chlorella powder with garlic, olive oil, cheese, pine nuts and lemon juice.
3.Bake With It
The next time you bake cookies, muffins, banana bread, zucchini bread or even a cake, sift a couple teaspoons of chlorella powder into the baking flour you're using. It will turn it green, but the sweetness of the dessert will mask chlorella's taste. You could also mix some chlorella powder into sweetened baked oatmeal. Make a sweet cream to drizzle on top of anything by combining honey, tahini paste and chlorella powder.
4.Take It in Capsules
Because chlorella has a bitter taste, it may seem difficult to incorporate chlorella powder into your diet, especially if you don't drink smoothies or eat sweet foods that would counter the bitter taste. If you have a lot of chlorella powder at home and you don't want to add it to your food, you can buy capsules and a capsule machine and siphon it into capsules you can swallow. You can also buy chlorella powder already in capsules.
