Chlorella is a good source of antioxidants (vitamin C and carotenoids), protein, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, chlorophyll, vitamins, and minerals
This "superfood" has many purported uses, including the treatment of cancer and bacterial and viral infections, enhancement of the immune system, promotion of friendly bacteria in the digestive tract, reduction of blood pressure and cholesterol, and detoxification of the blood, liver and digestive system.
Chlorella is a type of algae that grows in fresh water. The whole plant is used to make nutritional supplements and medicine.
As a medicine, chlorella is used for preventing cancer, reducing radiation treatment side effects, stimulating the immune system, improving response to flu vaccine, increasing white blood cell counts (especially in people with HIV infection or cancer), preventing colds, protecting the body against toxic metals such as lead and mercury, and slowing the aging process.
Chlorella is also used to increase “good” bacteria in the intestine in order to improve digestion; and to help treat ulcers, colitis, Crohn's disease, and diverticulosis.
Some people also use chlorella for the prevention of stress-related ulcers; treatment of constipation, bad breath, and hypertension; as an antioxidant; to reduce cholesterol; to increase energy; to detoxify the body; and as a source of magnesium to promote mental health, relieve premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and reduce asthma attacks. It is also used for fibromyalgia.
Chlorella is applied to the skin for treating skin ulcers, rashes caused by radiation treatment, and a sexually transmitted disease called trichomoniasis.
Dosage ranges from 2 grams to 15 grams per day, depending on why you are using it. Higher doses may be used for detoxification. A 3 gram serving is about 1 teaspoon. Mix with plain water or fruit juice. You can also add it to smoothies and green juices. You can also mix chlorella powder into baked goods, such as bread or cookies. Increase your dosage gradually, especially if you are taking higher doses for detoxification purposes. Drink plenty of water, i.e. 1 to 2 quarts daily to aid the body in getting rid of toxins if you're taking chlorella for detoxification purposes.
Iodine sensitivity: Chlorella can contain iodine. Therefore, chlorella might cause an allergic reaction in people sensitive to iodine.
Allergy to molds: Chlorella might cause an allergic reaction in people who are also allergic to molds.
