This alga can be found in clean and fresh water, it comes from the phylum chlorophyta family and provides a lot of proteins. This alga is popular for its effect on many diseases and conditions, along with diverse infections. The Chlorella has several other names among which are Chlorella pyrenoidosa and Chlorella vulgaris. Although this alga provides several beneficial effects, it can also lead to some side effects, and we will talk about the latter in the following text.
Benefits of Chlorella
One of the benefits includes an effect on the immune system. Chlorella can be used for treating several cancer types and improvement of the digestion. It can also be used for problems such as liver cirrhosis, infections, viruses and diabetes and many studies confirm this thesis. Chlorella has a lot of carbohydrates, fibers, minerals and fats, which help with the problem of damaged cells and constipation. It is especially effective with cell damage caused by the radiation therapy. The use of the Chlorella will bring benefits to the human metabolism, which eventually leads to the elimination of the problems with ulcers, especially those formed on the skin. Studies show also that Chlorella boosts the body with energy. It can also be used for detoxification, aiding the production of red cells and for the prevention of the intestine inflammation. The use of Chlorella will make the joints healthier and it will aid the development of muscles.
Chlorella - Side Effects
This alga has not been popular in the past times, but the popularity of Chlorella has been on the rise over the last few years. Still, there are several side effects that have to be noted and known. Some of the side effects that can occur include nausea, stomach problems, chest pain, and problems with the heart rate, vomiting and diarrhea. Another problem that can come up from the use of Chlorella is bloating. Also remember that women are not advised to use this alga, since it can produces some side effects. We have said that ulcers can be treated with this alga, but in some cases it can lead to the aggravation of the problem. Skin can also be itchy and swollen due to the Chlorella, along with the extreme fatigue and problem related to the lack of enthusiasm, which are other side effects.
We have mentioned several side effects that can arise from the use of Chlorella. Since, this is relatively obscure remedy, we have to explain and educate about it the best we can. In the future, we will have more clear vision on this remedy, since today it holds two spit opinions, one negative and one positive.
