Chlorella Virus (Will it make you dumber?)

Chlorella Virus (Will it make you dumber?)


On November 11, 2014, scientists found a virus called chlorella virus ATCV-1. This virus can affect the cognitive abilities of healthy people.

The findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and shocked many chlorella consumers.

We took a closer look at the research paper and found that the chlorella virus will only infect certain species of chlorella. The question you should be asking is, "what species of chlorella can help you avoid the virus?"

The species of Bio2go™ chlorella products is chlorella sorokiniana (formerly known as chlorella pyrenoidosa). Chlorella sorokiniana is a species that will not be infected by Chlorella virus ATCV-1.

All of Bio2go™ chlorella products and Bio2go™ chlorella and spirulina 50/50 tablets are 100% safe to eat.
