Chlorella is tested for liver disease, cholesterol, and carcinogens to remove toxins.
“depression he is A debilitating mental disorder with severe impairment of quality of life”, but as I’ve discussed before, medications don’t work well and You have group of side effects. “for these reasons, seek It is essential to have alternative antidepressant agents of appropriate efficacy and safety.” Well, there is a green algae called chlorella “that has been used as a dietary supplement and alternative medicine in Far Eastern countries for hundreds of years.” Why not test it?
One of the studies I review in my video Friday favorites: Detoxing with chlorella It is a randomized controlled trial of chlorella in patients with major depression. The topics were random To the standard treatment or standard treatment plus 1,800 mg of chlorella, which is about three-quarters of a teaspoon per day, researchers found that people who took chlorella had a significant improvement in their “physical and cognitive symptoms of depression and anxiety…” Wow!
OK, but what’s the missing word in the study title? “A randomized controlled trial of … chlorella.” What we want is random placebo-controlled trial. In the study, researchers compared chlorella with none. Half of the participants got special treatment (chlorella) while the other half got none. This is the ideal setting for the placebo effect, particularly when the measured results are primarily subjective feelings. Now, you could argue, “Look, that amount of chlorella would only cost about 10 cents a day, it’s healthy for you anyway, and depression is a very serious illness. Why not just give it a try?” Excellent points, but I’d still like to know if Was it already working or not.
You may remember another Chlorella study I discussed earlier suffer Than a similar problem, but at least that problem It was An objective, quantifiable result: a significant reduction in hepatitis. However, that study also didn’t have a control group, so it’s possible that the subjects had improved on their own for some reason.
What we need is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of chlorella for liver disease… and finally I got That’s just. And not just any liver disease, but non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, which is now thanks to the obesity pandemic impact One out of every four people on Earth. Let’s see if 1200 mg of chlorella will do helps. (That’s only about half a teaspoon per day, it costs about a nickel per day.) As you can see below and at 2:21 in videoresearchers saw Marked decreases in hepatitis, possibly because the subjects lost significantly more weight — about one pound per week over the eight weeks — and this would explain the marked improvement in fasting blood sugars that was also found. The researchers concluded that chlorella has “significant weight-reducing effects” with “meaningful improvements” in liver function.
What about a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of Chlorella for cholesterol? Compared with the control group, the chlorella Collection offered Marked changes in total cholesterol… “How attractive are the changes? Only 1.6 percent, which seems unremarkable. He noted that the study evaluated the total cholesterol. If you look at what really matters – the so-called “bad” LDL cholesterol – there will be no effect at all, as you can see below and at 3:01 in video. Fortunately, this is not what other studies have found. A meta-analysis of 19 randomized controlled trials of Chlorella for cholesterol, which included hundreds of people, have found Those who took chlorella lowered their LDL cholesterol by eight points, on average, and even lowered their blood pressure by a few points. Four or more grams per day for at least eight weeks seems to be the magic formula, which would be about two teaspoons per day. That’s a lot of chlorella, but if you find a palatable way to take it, it may help.
In a more recent study, the double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled dietary cholesterol challenge, researchers had 34 study subjects. Eat Three eggs a day (total 510 mg of dietary cholesterol) with a few tablespoons of Chlorella or a placebo for four weeks. As you can see below and at 3:57 in my country videoIn the study, participants had a 14 percent increase in LDL cholesterol from simply eating eggs alone, but with chlorella, the percentage was significantly lower. Therefore, chlorella can play a “beneficial role in maintaining a healthy serum.” [blood] cholesterol levels,” although another way is to not eat three eggs a day.
This reminds me of another study that was done to “evaluate the ability of Chlorella vulgaris to me detoxifies Carcinogenic HCAs,” which are heterocyclic amines, are cancer-causing chemicals that arise when meat is fried, baked, grilled, or grilled. Chlorella appears to reduce levels of a cooked carcinogen that flows through people’s bodies, but it hasn’t quite reached statistical significance. , as you can see below and at 4:27 in video.
What about polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), another class of carcinogenic compounds have found Especially in smoked meats and cigarettes, which “contain many genotoxic substances.” [DNA-damaging] Carcinogens”? Again, chlorella appears to lower levels but not significantly. However, if you are going to eat eggs and pork for breakfast, also try adding plenty of chlorella to make them green eggs and ham.
