This product was recommended by my Doctor. I was one of the unfortunate people who had a very nasty reaction to one of the statin drugs and have been battling myopathy and severe fatigue. She said it would help my whole system. She recommended I take both it and Spirulina. In the short time I have been taking them I have gone from needing 2 or 3 naps a day to cleaning out my kitchen cabinets at 9:30 at night! My leg spasms are almost gone and I just feel better all over. The tablets are small enought to take and unlike some products you only need to take 3 of them to get 3 grams of Chlorella which is the recommended dose - not 15 or 20 pills. I just placed my second order - you can bet I'm staying with this one! What's not to like?

First of all, the problem that most people seem to be having with GI could be from a variety of other reasons. I am not going to speculate individual problems and needs. I will just tell you what I did and experienced (I'm a 26 year old male), which was to start with a 1/2 broken tablet ( or even less, if you want to be safe).

Take it that way with food, and see how your body reacts to it. If everything seems ok then the next day you could probably eat a whole tablet or continue taking the 1/2 tablet per day for a week. The second week move to two tablets, the third three, or whatever you situation needs. Just slowly and progressively take more as need, don't take three tablet at once on your first day.

Having said that, it will make you have to poop, there is no other way to say it, we are all adults here. You will have to go but not in a laxative way. You will go once, and that is it. In fact, I feel that it has been an extremely helpful and healthy bonus. It clears you out, but in very natural way. It seems that over time the "feeling of having to go right now" lessens, but you are left with all of the health benefits that Chlorella brings.

I would go for it, just be near a toilet the first few times you try it. :)

I have Stage 4 metastatic cancer to the bone. EVERY bone. I take this along with Chlorella and some other supplements and am now in complete remission, after being given 3-6 months to live.

I am using Chorella to combat a neuropathy. Since I have been taking it, I feel more energized.

Definitely helps my digestion and overall health! The amount of nutrition and health benefits of chlorella make it worth taking on a daily basis, even if I didnt notice a difference in the way I felt. But I definitely do notice a difference. Also I noticed when I take it it has a kind of calming effect. So I take it if I'm feeling stressed, and it helps me feel better.

If you're looking at buying Chlorella you already did your research as to what it's supposed to do. The thing that many often miss out on however is the doseage that goes with the daily inclusion of it in your diet and of course, reliable purity. NOW does good work, at least so far as I've been able to uncover with way too many hours being a google detective, so their purity and quality is satisfactory for my needs. The dosage that this comes in is also spot on, 1k mg dosage 3x a day is considered the ideal, so in this case 1 pill 3x a day 30 minutes before meal time. That's relatively easy to do and remember as opposed to the smaller dosage size which, unless you have a issue with the size of the tablet, seems like added hassle. The 1k tablet is about the size of a ibuprofen tab and goes down pretty easily. The question then becomes is, does it work? Every person's body is their own chemical processing plant, but aside from the general weight of the research my own experience is that my Dr really likes my blood work. I'm overweight and have struggled against it my entire life, but my cholesterol, BP and other assorted numbers are at a level that my Dr is happy with and while my cholesterol was never high or even worrisome, since including a combination of Chlorella and Spirulina its' dropped 37 pts to be "surprisingly low".

I take Chlorella 1000 mg, Spirulina Pacifica and BioAstin SupremeNOW Foods Chlorella 1000mg, 120 TabletsNutrex Hawaii MD Formulas BioAstin Supreme 6 mgs., 60-v-gels BottleNutrex Hawaii - All Natural Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica, 180 Tablets. These products have changed my life! After 3 to 4 weeks, I was back to my "young" self - waking up early in the morning, lots of energy, great mood and feeling wonderful. I cannot imagine ever stopping these products!!!! I had felt awful since 1999 - went to doctors for severe fatigue and feeling awful almost everyday! I got no answers - just lots of tests for various causes - was told that I suffered from fibromyalgia. Until Dr. Oz showed these items and BioAstin Supreme, I was lost in a fog and fatigue-land. It was difficult to work, concentrate, feel like I was really living!

I followed all of the directions and started slowly with the dose. I experienced some nausea and GI upset for about three weeks - I questioned was this right for me and could I withstand the discomfort. But, I realized that this was nothing compared to the past 12 years - I kept taking the products and the GI discomfort disappeared. I feel so wonderful everyday and hop out of bed in the mornings (I am a night owl, so this is unreal for me!).

I did my research, because why take Chlorella to cleanse out impurities and other benefits, if it comes from Japan?

This is content from an email I received from NOW Foods in response to my inquiry:

Our Organic Chlorella is grown on the Hainan Island, a tropical island in the South China Sea
with pristine waters, unspoiled
beaches and clean air.

Regular Chlorella:
Country of origin is China or Korea

They are grown in controlled outdoor commercial fresh water ponds.

They are processed in their respective countries and packaged here in our Bloomingdale, IL USA facility

Thank you for your inquiry,

Information in this response refers to product labeled for sale in the USA unless otherwise indicated

I realize it may take several weeks to feel the full benefits.
I've had several negative and painful things going on with my digestive system for about 7 years now.
A sensitive and highly acidic stomach that requires me to take a well known acid reflux medication once a day and sometimes can get to a point where that doesn't help too much. I had been drinking aloe juice and tried a few detox options in the past but all of them made me feel funny or only work temporarily. The option that made this condition livable was to take a bacteria supplement (the same in yogurt) the acid reflux pills and watch what I eat. I had to eliminate some of the food I love, mainly citrus or anything with too much acid or choose to pay the price. This still did not eliminate the problem it only curbed it enough to carry on a normal life instead of living in the restroom.
One evening I was surfing the web and came across an article about chlorella and decided to give it a try. I started taking one pill after lunch on a weekend just to make sure if there were any "events", I would be at home. At first there was little bit of a weird feeling in my stomach but nothing I couldn't handle so I switched to taking it every night after dinner. After just three days I noticed bloating had decreased; pressure in my digestive system has been greatly reduced. After 5 days, my stomach feels like it has much less of the extra acid feeling I usually have and I could probably stop taking my acid reflux pills completely if I chose too. This is the first time in 7 years my stomach has felt normal and as a matter of fact, the last time I remember it feeling this good was when I was a kid. Now it's been about 7 days and i decided to start taking two a day, one with lunch and one with dinner. I should mention I still take the bacteria supplements, as well as a multivitamin and though sometimes it causes my stomach to gargle and sometimes I have to run to the bathroom, I feel much better. It seems to work and how else would it evacuate the toxins? I think this is the beginning of a good thing between me and this supplement. I do not recommend taking the recommended dosage to start unless you have an iron gut in which case you don't need these anyway. Start with one then slowly work your way up. If anything opposite happens in the future, I will add it to this review but so far, so good.
