The Perfect Foods You Aren’t Eating

Aubrey Marcus, Onnit Founder

“If I were going to Mars, Spirulina and Chlorella would be at the top of the list of foods I would bring. It is the most complete combination of nutrients from two simple food sources that I can possibly imagine, and whether I’m interstellar or not, I’m going to keep stocked on these two superfoods.”

Supports Environmental Sustainability

Athlete in nature with Spirulina and Chlorella

One of the biggest environmental problems the world is facing is how to continue supplying food for a growing population without running out of farmland. Unlike our other air breathing food sources, spirulina & chlorella are cheap and easy to raise for food. An study determined that spirulina & chlorella require the least amount of land per unit of protein and unit of human digestible energy, meaning that they need less land to produce the same amount of protein and energy as livestock does. To that end, spirulina & chlorella are often used in feed for livestock and fish/shellfish farming.

Spirulina & Chlorella

At some point, everybody’s worked with that guy who ate fast food every day, lit his next cigarette with the butt of his previous one, and could barely contain his contempt for your healthy lifestyle. To him, your salad was “rabbit food,” working out made you a “narcissist,” and your protein smoothies looked “like something I’d flush.” So he really would have hated Spirulina & Chlorella.

To the uninitiated, this edible algae product may seem like nothing more than pond scum—another example of newfangled, hippie-dippy, pseudo-nutrition. But your old colleague (rest his soul, by the way) would be wrong. In fact, Spirulina & Chlorella are bonafide superfoods with the potential to not only restore your body but the planet at large, making it a more than worthwhile addition to your list of healthy habits.

When you're looking at quality, utilizable proteins, spirulina and chlorella are at the top of the list. Animal-based protein is only about 20 or 30% utilizable. Spirulina and chlorella protein is about 60% utilizable, and the phytonutrients that come with it really help to boost the nutrient profile.
