What is Chlorella?

Chlorella is a single-celled freshwater alga that has been used for centuries to promote healing and detoxification. It contains vitamin C and carotenoids, both of which are antioxidants that block the action of free radicals (unstable molecules that can damage cells). Chlorella is also reported to contain high concentrations of iron and B-complex vitamins.  It is widely used in Japan for a variety of health conditions, but again, there are not many scientific studies to support its effectiveness for preventing or treating cancer or any other disease in humans.

What does Chlorella Treat?

According to the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) website, “Chlorella is promoted as an herbal remedy for a wide range of conditions. Proponents claim it kills several types of cancer, fights bacterial and viral infections, enhances the immune system, increases the growth of “friendly” germs in the digestive tract, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and promotes healing of intestinal ulcers, diverticulosis, and Crohn’s disease. It is said to “cleanse” the blood, digestive system, and the liver. Chlorella supporters also say that it helps the body eliminate mold and process more oxygen.  Supporters state that chlorella supplements increase the level of albumin in the body. Albumin is a protein normally present in the bloodstream, and promoters claim it protects against diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, AIDS, pancreatitis, cirrhosis, hepatitis, anemia, and multiple sclerosis.  Chlorella is said to prevent cancer through its ability to cleanse the body of toxins and heavy metals. Some Web sites describe it as the perfect food, saying that it regulates blood sugar, kills cancer cells, strengthens the immune system, and even reverses the aging cycle.”



I highly recommend Chlorella as I believe it is a great support for detoxification and overall liver support. The ACS website adds this disclaimer: “Available scientific evidence does not support these claims. Because of this, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned the proprietors of at least one Web site to stop making unproven statements about chlorella’s benefits.”  Oh brother, pharmaceutical companies can claim anything they want while they get paid up to $15,000 per chemo treatment yet a nutritional product made by God and sold for less than $50 for a month’s supply needs to be stifled for making ‘false claims’.  Give me a break!
