2:1 is perfect. Just be sure your chlorella is broken or cracked cell wall. Chlorella's cell wall is indigestible, so it needs to be broken with a high pressure air spray so your body can get at the nutrients inside. Spirulina has far more beta carotene, and is the second highest source of GLA in the world (next to human breast milk). Chlorella's cell wall binds to toxins and metals like mercury, aluminum, and cadmium, allowing you to pass them through the stool. Chlorella has far more chlorophyll also. Those are the main differences between the two. I've racked my brain trying to determine which one would be better to take, and I just can't. Both have their strengths so I take both. Since you are taking them for the first time, go slow with a small dose, especially with the chlorella, and work your way up. Taking too much at the beginning could trigger a "healing crisis". They are so good at detox, they release toxins that have been building up in your body all this time, and it could make you temporarily sick. 2 Years ago when I first took spirulina it gave me terrible migraines and stomach aches. But the next morning after I woke up I felt better than I ever have in my life. The taste will take getting used to, but you will get used to it. Just mix it in pineapple or apple juice. I'll gather up the nutrition info I have on them during my lunch break today. Also, NOW is a very good brand. I take their spirulina and Jarrow brand chlorella. But I have read NOW chlorella is the equivalent of Jarrow as far as quality goes so you did well.
