Chlo-re-lla

I am going to start sharing about ingredients on here from time to time and today I am starting with Chlorella. Chlorella is a freshwater blue-green algae superfood. 

Shakeology contains Chlorella as one of the superfoods it offers. When I found out about this, I was super happy. I knew the benefits of chlorella already but I honestly did not consume chlorella very regularly. It doesn't have a flavor that I 100% enjoy and I just never really added it to our diet at home.

Chlorella helps support our immunes system, it contains high levels of protein and fiber, detoxifies the body from heavy metals (mercury), it helps cleanse toxins from the body, and it can help to lower stress, inflammation and and mental irritability. 

Not bad huh?
