Chlorella is a microscopic organism that grows in fresh water. It is a single-celled green algae containing the highest chlorophyll amount compared to other plants. It consists of various active ingredients such as dietary essential amino acids, fatty acids, beta-carotene, RNA/DNA, and over 20 vitamins and minerals. It is widely used to treat constipation, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. It is also helpful in treating colitis, ulcers, Crohn’s disease, and diverticulosis by increasing the amount of good bacteria in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Chlorella used for human consumption is cultivated outdoors in mineral-rich freshwater ponds under direct sunlight. The entire cultivation process is closely monitored by biologists in order to ensure optimum nutrient value and product quality.
The chlorella market is segmented on the basis of its applications in different industries such as food and beverage industry, pharmaceutical industry, personal care industry, and other applications. In the food and beverage industry, chlorella is majorly used as a food supplement, consumed in order to reduce cancer from spreading, improve immunity, lower blood cholesterol and maintain a good balance of bacteria in the gut. Similarly, in the pharmaceutical industry, chlorella is used to treat constipation, hypertension, diabetes, hypoglycemia, asthma, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure and high cholesterol along with other gastrointestinal disorders. In the personal care industry, skin care creams, lotions and hair care products use chlorella as a key source of chlorophyll. It is also used in cosmetic products as an added pigmentation ingredient.
The chlorella market is further segmented on the basis of type. The two major types of chlorella include organic chlorella and inorganic chlorella. The major difference between organic and inorganic chlorella depends on how and where the chlorella is cultivated and processed. Organic chlorella is cultivated using organic nutrients whereas the non-organic chlorella is cultivated using inorganic nutrients.
