Additional product info
Chlorella, a type of unicellular green algae, has been a popular foodstuff worldwide, especially in Japan, Taiwan, and Korea. It contains essential amino acids, protein, minerals, vitamins, chlorophyll, and bioactive substances. Administration of Chlorella in animals has demonstrated effects on numerous biochemical functions, such as remarkable antioxidant and anticataract effects in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats and lowered blood glucose in animals. Also, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory activities have been reported. In addition to producing cytokines and boosting immune function, Chlorella can decrease oxidative stress and stress-induced ulcers in mice. The purpose of a study was to investigate whether 6 weeks of Chlorella supplementation to smokers is protective against oxidative damage in a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial. Fifty-two smokers were given 6.3 g of Chlorella vulgaris or placebo every day for 6 weeks. Chlorella supplementation increased plasma vitamin C, a-tocopherol, and erythrocyte catalase and superoxide dismutase activities. Chlorella supplementation resulted in the conservation of plasma antioxidant nutrient status and improvement in erythrocyte antioxidant enzyme activities in smoking subjects (1).*
