Are chlorella and spirolina safe?

Are chlorella and spirolina safe?

Algae: 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. ...Read more

Is it harmful to take chlorella longer than 2 months. Isn't that about how long it would take to get in your system and start working?

Is it harmful to take chlorella longer than 2 months. Isn't that about how long it would take to get in your system and start working?

No benefit: It really doesn't matter how long you take Chlorella, because there is no scientific evidence to support its effectiveness for prevention or treating cancer or any disease in humans. You would probably be better off using the money to buy healthy nutritious food as a basis of a good diet. Adding Chlorella will not help though. Good luck. ...Read more

Where are chlorella supplements found?

Where are chlorella supplements found?

Supplement store: 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.
