There are two types of algae, namely macro and microalgae.
Macroalgae are known as seaweed. Microalgae are also called phytoplankton. Plankton are organisms that float freely in water. There are two groups of these, namely plant plankton (phytoplankton) and animal plankton (zooplankton) which feeds itself with other plankton.
Chlorella; what exactly is that?
Chlorella is a green, single-celled freshwater algae that was originally found in rivers and lakes in eastern Asia. Unicellular algae are among the oldest forms of plant life on earth. They are minuscule little plants without roots, leaves or stems. Algae can adapt very well to extreme conditions and belong to the oldest life forms. They have been living on our planet for about 2.5 billion years. Chlorella contains an exceptionally high level of chlorophyll: the green dye in the leaves of plants with which they absorb and convert sunlight into energy.
Because Chlorella’s healing effect is becoming increasingly known, breeding ponds can currently be found around the world in which this crop is grown.
