Chlorella is a type of green algae that is often used as a dietary supplement due to its high nutritional content. It contains a variety of beneficial compounds, such as chlorophyll, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids. However, like Spirulina, some strains of Chlorella can produce toxins that can be harmful to humans and animals. Therefore, it is essential to ensure proper harvesting and processing practices to prevent the spread of harmful strains while utilizing its beneficial aspects for nutrition and health purposes.
