Chlorella is POSSIBLY SAFE when used short-term (up to 2 months). The most common side effects include diarrhea, nausea, gas (flatulence), green discoloration of the stools, and stomach cramping, especially in the first week of use. Chlorella has caused serious allergic reactions, including asthma and other dangerous breathing problems. Chlorella can cause skin to become extra sun sensitive

Are spirulina and chlorella safe?

Mostly yes

Screening
Spirulina and chlorella from good sources can be very good for your health. Always find out the source. Try to get products from companies that are willing to show testing results of purity. NEVER buy products from China (some may be OK but there is a lot of contamination).

Are Chlorella and Spirolina safe?

Algae

Vitamins_and_supplements
Chlorella and spirolina are green and blue=green algae used as dietary supplements. Am not aware of any known direct toxicities, but persons with seafood allergies and those with hyperthyroidism should avoid these. The more important question is are they really necessary? Only you can determine whether you really need these. Only your wallet is likely to be hurt.

Can chlorella be taken with metformin?

Unknown

Metformin
Chlorella is a food supplement that is not regulated by the FDA. There are no studies looking at how it can interact with medications. There are no studies that show that it is effective in treating any disorder, despite any claims or phrases they have on the label. If you have money to through away on these supplements, it would be more rewarding to donate it to a worthy charity.

Where are chlorella supplements found?

Supplement store

Supplements
These are dried algae promoted as "detoxifying agents." For example, supposedly they remove heavy metals from the body and even destroy polychlorinated biphenyls, as reported in one journal of which I'd never heard. Claims that sound much too good to be true almost always turn out not to be true, but of course the decision is yours.

What is chlorella? How does it affect your body?

Algae

Cancer
It's a green algae. Sold as a health supplement and has been touted to treat cancer. Unfortunately, there is no evidence that it treats any disease or has any benefit. There is also some reason to be concerned about toxins you can get from it. Stay away from it until we know more about its possible uses.

Is it ok to take Spirulina and/or Chlorella along with prozac? (40mg/daily)

Yes -- ok

Iron
There are no interactions between Spirulina or Chlorella and Prozac. But, you need to investigate the products you're considering using to be sure they are not contaminated with heavy metals. This is a common issue with some of these products. Stick with a reliable company that guarantees its products, explaining how it tests for these contaminants.
