Complementarities between Spirulina and Chlorella

Other minerals and trace elements

Chlorella and Spirulina are rich in mineral salts and trace elements.

It is important to remember that these superfoods improve overall well-being and increase immunity.

Chlorella is richer in manganese and phosphorus than Spirulina but also in iron. As for Spirulina, it is much richer in potassium and sodium (15 times more salt) as well as in zinc than Chlorella. It is even possible that this microalgae may help to prevent certain cancers.

They both contain, in the same proportions, magnesium, calcium and copper. They are therefore complementary in their contributions of iron, phosphorus, manganese, potassium, sodium and zinc. These elements, in a significant proportion, promote the acid-base balance of our organism.

Chlorella and Spirulina contain vitamin K1 essential for coagulation. For people who need to take high-dose anticoagulants, Chlorella would be better because it contains less K1 vitamin than Spirulina. In case of doubt, it is always advisable to consult your doctor.
