Question: from Ada
I wonder if you would please comment on chlorella. Is it really as wonderful as the literature leads me to believe?
Answer: from Warren
Chlorella is OK but it tends to be overhyped. It is not the cure that some people claim. I personally would not bother taking it because it is only covering one component of the overall nutrient spectrum that our bodies need.
Having said that we do have a number of customers who take it in addition to our Total Balance...it's fine to take it as an add-on. I just wouldn't want to rely on it as my supplement foundation.
This principle applies to many good products, nutrients and foods. Ensure that you have a strong foundation which is a broad-based supplement such as Total Balance and an Omega 3 and then add whatever you want...within reason.
The abovementioned study was published in The Journal of Toxicological Sciences Vol. 35, No.1 101 – 105, 2010 and the full version can be viewed here.
