A new study3 builds on previous research and shows the green algae supplement chlorella could significantly improve performance in runners.
Whilst previous studies 1,2 have indicated that there could be numerous health benefits in combining running with taking chlorella, a type of green algae hailed as a superfood, a new study3 is one of the first to show use of the natural supplement could directly improve exercise performance.
The new research discovered that, over a period of six weeks, when chlorella intake was combined with HIIE training there was a pronounced increase in exercise performance, compared to exercising without supplementation, and the efficiency of the body’s energy production and lactate removal systems improved.
Whilst further research will need to be undertaken to convince sceptics of the algae’s ability, there certainly won’t be any harm in using chlorella in the meantime, as it contains a host of beneficial nutrients and can easily be added to your diet.
How to benefit from chlorella
Some of the most efficient chlorella products on the market come from Sun Chlorella, whose new DYNO®-Mill technology breaks down the cell walls of the algae (without the use of heat or chemicals which can reduce the quality of the chlorella) to ensure when you use either their granules or tablets you’re getting the most nutrients possible.
The granules can easily be added to smoothies or protein shakes, whilst the tablets offer a convenient alternative.
Available directly from www.sunchlorella.co.uk or health stores nationwide.
