Surprise! I wasn’t planning on posting today, but the generous folks at Vega let me try their brand of Chlorella recently and offered to do a giveaway for two lucky readers. Rather than combine it with tomorrow’s post, I wanted to announce the giveaway separately.
Have you ever heard of chlorella? I hadn’t, but in doing some research on vegan diets and iron status recently, I came across it as a good source. I’m also intrigued by its supposed “detoxification” properties. Chlorella is green algae that manufacturers harvest and collect and turn into powder or tablets. The American Cancer Society has a page here with information on the possible risks and benefits of using chlorella.
Dr. Greger also did a video here on whether or not chlorella is harmful, harmless, or helpful:
I wanted to try chlorella for myself and immediately thought of Vega when selecting a brand:
Here is the supplement facts label from the U.S. version:
Note that the serving size is 5 tablets.
This is going to be a flash giveaway meaning that you have less 24 hours to enter; I’ll be picking two winners tomorrow morning 6:30 a.m. PST. The giveaway is open to residents of both U.S. and Canada and you must be over 18 years of age to enter. Also, you should note that I’m not recommending that you start taking chlorella, you should seek the advice of your health professional before making any changes to your health or supplement routine and all that, m’kay?
Good luck! 🙂
