Chlorella is a very powerful detoxifier with the ability to attract and bind toxins from whatever it comes into contact with. Often people don't realize that this includes not only the toxins in their bodies (once it is ingested), but also the environment in which chlorella is grown. As such, it is very important to know the source of the chlorella which you are putting into your body, and to make sure it is not already "pre-contaminated" with pollutants from its origin environment. Many brands of chlorella on the market today contain fair amounts of heavy metals and other pollutants~ the very things we're trying to rid our bodies of when we take chlorella! By contrast, according to its website, HealthForce's Chorella Manna is grown in indoor tanks under tightly controlled conditions, ensuring a pure, high-quality, contaminant-free product. It has also been tested for purity and guaranteed free of radiation~ very important in this day and age! The vacuum-sealed, glass packaging ensures that it's fresh and not contaminated by leaching plastic residues. The powder itself is finely ground, almost fluffy. It has a rich, sulfury taste that some people might find objectionable, but I love it. Aside from being a very potent detoxifier, it's also incredibly nutritious. This brand is a top-quality product all the way around!

This is the first time, when I have tried Chlorella. I bought it to help my proctitis. Hopefully it will help. In the first morning I took a teaspoon of chlorella and after a few hours got nausea and dizziness. While searching information about chlorella side effects, I found out, that you should start to take it by very small doses like 1/2 teaspoon to avoid the nausea or other detoxification symptons. Now I am taking 1/2 teaspoon and have no problems.

hopefully I'll get there! Very fine powder (careful when opening). When mixed with anything its "bio-green" taste blasts through! If any suggestions please post. Heard there are many health benefits for removing toxins from the body naturally with its use.

It tastes like other chlorellas too. But it mixes well in water, so I think this is better product than I've tried before. And my 1 y 5 months son eats it every day, so taste is good! ;)

I like these over other typical brands, but they might be too costly for me in the future. So I'll pick these whenever I can afford them, but if not I'll choose the cheaper less quality stuff. This goes for their Spirulina as well.
