What is Chlorella?
Chlorella is a single-cell fresh water algae and is one of the oldest and most nutritious plant life forms on earth. It's known as a "superfood" due to its incredibly high concentrations of essential nutrients including chlorophyll, beta-carotene, mixed carotenoids and phytonutrients. It has vitamins, including D and B12, protein, minerals, including magnesium, Omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids, highly absorbable amino acids, nucleic acids and a natural source of easily digested iron. CGF is a complex of cells found in the cell nucleus and research indicates it supports muscle growth and repair
It's one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet with a wealth of scientific studies proving its effectiveness in various health outcomes going back as far as the 1950s. It has long been used as a natural supplement to boost energy, assist with fat loss, and support detoxification of heavy metals.
What are the main benefits of Chlorella?
Consuming Chlorella has been shown to boost immunity, increase energy, assist with eliminating heavy metal toxins, improve brain function, support fat loss and promote muscle growth and repair. The vast number of vitamins and minerals synergistically effect numerous health functions in the body. Check out our blog for more information about Chlorella's benefits and how to use it!
How much Chlorella should I take?
Dose recommendations of Chlorella commonly vary from 3-7g. We recommend consuming up to 7g to receive the full benefits, which equates to 3-6 tablets twice a day, or 2 teaspoons of powder. It's advisable to begin your first week with half this amount while ensuring proper hydration. Please always consult a healthcare practitioner before consuming any Chlorella if pregnant or breastfeeding.
How do I use Chlorella powder?
Chlorella can be consumed in an endless number of delicious ways. On its own, it has a subtle taste similar to leafy greens, though we have many flavored options available as well! The powders can be used in smoothies, cooking, baking, or simply mixed into your favorite drink. Check out our blog for recipe ideas!

Where is BioGenesis Chlorella grown?
Biogenesis Chlorella is organically grown in a pristine area of the great barrier reef region of North Queensland. Bathed in golden sunshine the microalgae thrive in freshwater spring water ponds. We use an advanced energy efficient hydro dynamic irrigation system that simulates natural river flow.
When harvested we crack the Chlorella’s hard outer cell using advanced bio dynamic technology, this ensures the valuable nutrients are retained for full bodily absorption
Is BioGenesis Chlorella 100% Australian?
Yes. We're proud to be the only 100% Australian owned and operated licensed producer of Chlorella. We own and operate our entire supply chain - from growing, harvesting, and drying, to packing and shipping. This model allows us to control for the highest possible quality at every stage of the process.
What is cracked-cell Chlorella?
"Cracked-cell" chlorella means the tough algae cell walls have been broken to ensure proper digestibility and nutrient absorption. We developed our own innovative process called "BioDynamic Technology" which opens the cell walls without causing damage to the delicate nutrients. Other producers labeled as "cracked cell" most often mechanically pulverize or grind the chlorella which can cause the exposed nutrients to degrade and oxidize. Many producers also choose to leave the cell wall intact which severely decreases the bioavailability and effectiveness of the Chlorella.
Is BioGenesis Natural Chlorella environmentally friendly?
Absolutely! We're committed to creating our product in the most ethically conscious way possible. We use sustainable farming practices, environmentally friendly packaging, and never test on animals.
Our Chlorella is organically grown, free from herbicides, pesticides, and environmental contaminants to maximize its health benefits for you while minimizing harm to the planet. We also use FDA-approved natural cotton wool to protect the tablets and a 100% biodegradable natural moisture absorbent. Most other manufacturers use unnatural materials such as silicone and desiccants for moisture absorption, and artificial fibers within the packaging
