Is Chlorella Good For Health?
What do you think about the chlorella supplements? I would like to know if they are safe and what health problems they address. There are any side effects?
Chlorella is a microscopic, green freshwater organism (a species of green algae) that is aggressively promoted on the Internet for its supposed health benefits. You may have read that it boosts energy, absorbs pesticides from the foods in your diet, fights cancer, eliminates infections, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels, cleanses the blood and the digestive system, and regulates blood sugar. I’m afraid there is very little scientific evidence to back up any of these extravagant claims.
In Japan, chlorella is cultivated and processed into tablets and liquid extracts. The investigators found that dried preparations of chlorella can contain up to 75% fat and up to 81% of a certain amount of a certain amount of a certain amount of a certain amount of a certain amount of a certain amount of a certain amount of a certain amount of a certain amount of The differences in the way the crop is cultivated, harvested and processed are what lead to these striking variations.
After World War II, chlorella was investigated as a possible commercial food source, and some research suggested that it could be used to treat cancer and reduce the effects of chemotherapy.
There is no evidence that chlorella extracts can effectively prevent or treat cancer in humans. Those with low levels of certain vitamins or minerals may benefit from the chlorella’s vitamins and minerals.
It is believed that chlorella is safe when taken short-term. There are no studies about the effects of long-term use. There is no evidence to show that chlorella will do you any good. Its side effects can include nausea, vomiting, and green stools. If you take chlorella supplements, be sure to use sunscreen when you leave the house.
