Roman Sasik did an article on chlorella back in January on robbwolf.com -- in the comments section, it looks like spirulina and other algae "superfoods" may be just as problematic ...

Technically, no: while algae may likely have been eaten in paleolithic times, spirulina consumption is a neolithic thing.

However ... I wouldn't worry about it. If you find it's a helpful supplement to take, it definitely falls into the "plant food" category. Maybe aim for the most unprocessed version you can find.
