Chlorella is blue-green unicellular micro-algae from the Chlorellacea family. The term chlorella is derived from a Greek and Latin word respectively, ‘chloros’ and ‘ella’. The former means green while the latter means small. Chlorella tablets are one form of the supplement in which chlorella is available for consumption. Of the three species of chlorella, Chlorella lobophora, Chlorella sorokiniana, and Chlorella vulgaris, the latter is the most widely cultivated.
The edible algae, which is a cyanobacteria, has the ability to multiply quite rapidly. Cells of the algae are spherical and are rich in a variety of nutrients. The strains that comprise the micro-algae are highly resistant to elevated temperatures and can do well in temperatures that range between 15-40°c. Chlorella can survive in quite a range of diverse environments. However, it is mostly found in freshwater sources as opposed to salty water ones, as well as in soil with specific properties. Cells of the edible algae are quite small and can only be seen under a microscope.
The need to take the plant in supplement form stems from the fact that it is relatively harsh on the body when taken in its raw form. In supplement form, it can be taken as a tablet, capsule, powder, or tincture which can be dissolved in alcoholic solvents. Cell walls of the Chlorella plant are relatively hard to break during digestion due to its rigid nature so it is important to check the chlorella supplement you are buying has had its cell walls cracked otherwise the supplement will not be easily absorbed in the body. The cellulose cell wall is broken down using mechanical disintegration techniques.
The cultivation of chlorella has increased over time since it grows quite rapidly with a relatively simple cycle. In recent times, mass cultivation of chlorella has moved to open ponds equipped with tools that ensure effective centrifugation. It requires minimal attention in the course of growth, as long as contamination of the open air ponds by micro-algae is prevented at all costs.
According to history, chlorella has been in existence for more than 2 billion years. However, it was popularised only over a century ago. It was first discovered in 1890 by Martinus Willem Beijerinck, a Dutch microbiologist. Scientists, researchers, and other stakeholders stumbled upon it during World War II. Due to the exploits of the war, there was a shortage of food as a result of the adverse effects of war on the agricultural sectors. Most foods had run out of supply since most people turned their efforts to World War. It is during this period that most countries decided to try out chlorella as food. Japan and Taiwan were the first nations to adopt it as a food, hence its increased popularity in these respective locations. Some of the individuals who tried it had slight photosensitivity issues as a result of consuming the plant. The chlorophyll ingested while taking chlorella reacted with sunlight resulting in blisters. However, soon enough people learnt how they could break down the cell wall before ingesting the product to make it easy for the acids in the gut to digest it.
