I started taking Chlorella and Spirulina at the same time, 2 tablets of each, 3 times a day. I knew I would experience some of the so called side effects for about a week or so while my body adjusted to the new supplements. I have been feeling a little off for months now and needed to do something to correct those feelings. I watched the film "Foodmatters" on Netflix and on it they talked about Spirulina being a superfood so when I ordered it Chlorella was suggested as a good thing to take along with it. After that week of detoxing and experiencing additional stomach noises, flatulence, and diarrhea, I feel much better. I've been taking these two supplements for about 2 months now and found I have more energy, lower blood pressure, require less sleep, lost some weight, and have not been ill even though people around me are. I plan on continuing and maybe adding a juice fast here and there to see if the micro-nutrients from juicing help me even more. I am trying to counteract the effects of years of eating processed foods and an already seeing a big difference.

Let me take you through Day 1 of my first supplementation with this extraordinary product. I noticed it detoxing numerous things from my body - including a really bad sinus infection in my nasal cavities. I began to breathe better, think clearer, workout longer. A breakout on my face subsided immediately and the color came back. Issues I was having with dry skin and dry eyes from contacts was no longer an issue. I could definitely tell it was detoxifying my body due to my now more regular bowel movements. There was some very slight discomfort the first two days as it sorted my gastrointestinal tract out but feeling like a million bucks. Puffiness under my eyes went away and it opened up my aura again. I am taking 6-10 a day depending on activity levels. Also, it appears to have boosted my immune system judging by a small wound on my hand and its repair time as well as what it has done to rid me of allergy symptoms.

Reasons why I recommend NOW Chlorella Organic Tablets:

1. Have been tested by my health practitioner (muscle testing-holistic doctor) and came out positive for this product (boosted my immune system).

2. So far, combining diet, healthy lifestyle, and supplements including this one), I've been able to detoxify and rid myself of over 4 toxic metals so far (mercury, lead, arsenic, aluminum). I attribute it partially to this Chlorella, which I've been taking for over 7 months now.

3. I contacted NOW and asked how they farmed the supplement, which they responded similar to: It is grown in a highly controlled and man-made environment to prevent any heavy metal accumulation, thus perserving the quality, cleanliness and safety of the Chlorella.

Reason why I don't recommend:

1. I did contact NOW about being able to provide me with a spec sheet and they responded similar to: Only a retailer, the place where I've been purchasing the Chlorella, could obtain the spec sheet, not the consumer directly. This made me doubt their integrity to an extent, but I still take due to the positive results I've been seeing on my protocol.

This is an awesome chlorella supplement. I've been taking more beneficial algae supplements, so that I could get more algae in my diet, and this was great. The pills are a rich dark green, and they're taste neutral when swallowing them. They do get a little powdery at the very bottom, after you've taken most of them, but by that time I was used to them so it didn't bug me.

I also started super slow, with taking only one every other day. And then I built up. I never had any side effects from taking them, and I'm not taking about seven tablets a day.

I felt that these really helped my overall health, and they have a lot of protein in them, too. But because I'm just taking it for overall health, I don't know much about the benefits, beside that it has a lot of vitamin K, and it helps your blood to clot easier, and it makes you smarter and it gives you beautiful skin. I didn't notice any of that, but it worked really well for what I needed it for.

This stuff is great for keeping your colon clean and keeping you regular. We take 3 as part of our daily diet to keep things from building up in our intestines.

I wish they had clearly written out that this product was produced in China on Product Description section or something. I would have never purchased this item if I had known this was made in China. It's a huge deciding factor for many people who look for health supplements and people should be able to know that before they make purchase.

I've taken another brand for about six months and found it beneficial. The NOW brand chlorella seems to do nothing for me at all. It doesn't even cause a bowel movement, which the other brand reliably causes within about an hour. It's a shame, since I've liked other NOW brand supplements, and this chlorella is much less expensive than the other brand I've been using.

The complete lack of effect makes me wonder if the cell walls really aren't broken!

These Chlorella tablets made me violently ill. It made me vomit for more than an hour. I haven't been this sick in over a decade. I normally have a strong stomach, but this product has changed all that. I'm still recovering from this episode, which happened over a week ago. I had read the negative reviews for Chlorella products, so I was cautious in taking it. Most reviews are positive, and I hoped I'd be one of the lucky ones that this product has helped. I started taking just one tablet, and worked my way up to the recommended, six tablets over the course of about 4 days. 11 days in, and not a single side effect. Then on day 12, I started to get slightly nauseous. I didn't think it was the Chlorella. I thought it was stomach flu, or something I ate. The nausea persisted and I got increasingly worse in the days ahead. I decided to stop taking Chlorella and the other supplements that I normally take. Chlorella was the only new supplement I was taking, yet I didn't think Chlorella was the problem, because I had already taken it for 11 days with no symptoms at all. About a week later I was feeling better, and thought..."maybe it wasn't the flu. Maybe it was the Chlorella". To see if the same symptoms of nausea would come back, I took the normal dose of these Chlorella tablets that I had been taking when I had quit a week earlier.

An hour later, I actually vomited. It was very violent. But it was only the beginning. I found myself vomiting uncontrollably many, MANY times over the next 1-2 hours. It was the worst sickness I've had in over a decade. I was very, very close to getting a ride to emergency, but I somehow pulled through on my own.

My body had built up some kind of sensitivity or allergy to Chlorella. I will never take it again. Please be careful if you decide to take this stuff.
