Chlorella, a single cell algae, is known as an alkaline superfood, containing high levels of nucleic acids, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other essential nutrients. It is ideal for people living an active life.

Chlorella is a type of green seaweeds which have been used in Oriental medicine for centuries. This microalga is being used as nutrient-dense foods and sources of fine chemicals. It contains significant amounts of lipid, protein, chlorophyll, carotenoids, vitamins, minerals and unique pigments, and it possesses distinct biological activities.

A recent clinical trial of the chlorella in the treatment of fibromyalgia, hypertension and ulcerative colitis has been reviewed. Fifty-five subjects with fibromyalgia, thirty-three with hypertension and nine with ulcerative colitis were supplemented with chlorella. Assessment of pain and overall quality of life were measured for fibromyalgia patients. Measurements of sitting diastolic blood pressure and serum lipid levels were carried out in hypertensive patients. The states of disease using Disease Activity Index were determined in patients with ulcerative colitis.

The results showed that daily dietary supplementation with chlorella might reduce high blood pressure, lower serum cholesterol levels, accelerate wound healing and enhance immune functions. Therefore, chlorella has the potential to relieve symptoms, improve quality of life and normalise body functions in patients with fibromyalgia, hypertension and ulcerative colitis.

The effects of chlorella on serum lipid profiles were studied in rats and hamsters treated with high-fat diet. These animals were fed with or without various concentrations of chlorella contained high-fat diet for 2, 4 and 8 weeks prior to assay of serum lipids. Fasting triglycerides, HDL, LDL and total cholesterol levels were determined.

Results showed that triglycerides, LDL and total cholesterol levels in animals treated with high-fat diet were increased from the normal rodent diet treated controls after 2, 4 and 8-week experiment. However, chlorella in high-fat diets significantly decreased the levels of triglycerides, LDL and total cholesterol in comparison to animals with just high-fat diets.

The total/HDL cholesterol ratios, an indication of occurrence of coronary heart disease, were decreased in all animals fed with chlorella and high-fat diets which suggested administration of chlorella could lower the occurring risk of heart diseases. This indicates that chlorella has the ability to prevent dyslipidemia in chronic high-fat fed animals and could be potential for preventing intestinal absorption of redundant lipid from the daily intake and subsequently preventing hyperlipidemia as well as atherosclerosis.

The antioxidant activities of chlorella were investigated in vitro and vivo. It was found that chlorella decreased the blood glycated haemoglobin and serum cholesterol levels significantly. The serum lipid peroxide value and the lens lipid peroxide content was lower than that of the control. These results indicate that chlorella has antioxidant activity and may be beneficial for the prevention of diabetic complications such as cataracts.

Chlorella was found to exhibit infection-resisting properties. The antiviral activity is correlated with augmentation of the natural killer activity of the spleen cells and serum interferon activity, as well as inhibiting the replication of virus in the target organs.

In summary, chlorella is a unique alga that has been shown to exhibit a wide range of health benefits. It has been shown that it may help to reduce blood pressure, accelerate wound healing, enhance immune function, and reduce the cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Chlorella has antioxidant and antiviral properties. It also aids in preventing the diabetic complications and decreasing the occurring risk of hyperlipidemia, atherosclerosis and heart diseases. Chlorella is also useful for those with fibromyalgia, hypertension and ulcerative colitis by relieving symptoms, improving quality of life and normalising the body functions.

Recommended use:

Adult - Take 3 - 12 grams (1 - 4 tsps) of chlorella powder daily depending on the individual's need. Mix with water, fruit juice, vegetable juice, salad dressing or other foods.

Cautions:

There are no known reports of toxicity associated with chlorella. However, occasional first time users may experience mild detoxification symptoms including flatulence, bloating and digestive discomfort.
