Viral infections? Don’t forget to add Chlorella to your protocol.
Historically, Chlorella is known as a superfood with a wide range of phytochemicals such as carotenoids, vitamins, polysaccharides, and essential fatty acids. Since the 1950s, Chlorella has been found to have antimicrobial properties, akin to antibiotics (Borowitzka, 1986, 1995, respectively). A more recent study by Kwak and associates demonstrates Chlorella’s ability to boost several markers of the immune system.
An 8-week randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study of Chlorella (5g) was conducted to see the immune/inflammation response in healthy humans. Kwak et al. (2012) primarily measured the cytotoxic activities of Natural Killer (NK) cells and serum concentrations of interferon-y, interleukin-1ß and interleukin-12, and found significant increases.
These results suggest a beneficial immune-stimulatory effect of short-term supplementation of Chlorella which enhances the NK cell activity and produces interferon-γ and interleukin-12 as well as interleukin-1β, the Th-1 cell-induced cytokines in healthy people.
As a short-term supplementation for immune stimulatory effect: 8-10 tablets of Chlorella. For maintenance, 4-6 tablets.
