  2. I just bought organic chlorella a few days ago. I've found it to be beneficial and the taste isn't as bad as spirulina, that's for sure.

  3. My chlorella powder contains dangerously high RDA's of iodine, that's why I only use a pinch per week, I'd say 4 g/day might be riskful for the thyroid since I've heard that high intakes of iodine can affect it's function negatively.

  4. There are different types of chlorella. You jumped from depression to liver disease to cholesterol to carcinogenic foods. This made the video unfocused and unclear to me.

  5. My only fear is the amount of heavy metals that those algae may contain and basically no information about (really) safe sources.

  6. So basically Chorella does exert some beneficial effects but does not replace a healthy diet in reducing toxins and cholesterol.

  7. YouTube should bring similar to Facebook’s laughing and love reaction, so we can show how much we like and laugh Dr. Gregor’s sarcasm. 😁

  8. Instill won’t take that shitty algae due to the possibility of heavy metals and other crap some manufactures don’t car about

  9. All the Blue green Algaes that can be consumed are super alkalizing and puts you in a higher vibration. Super beneficial for depression. Also barley grass juice will clean your blood as well.

  10. Don't forget to mention that indole 3 carbinol from the brassica family of vegetables (or from a supplement) and or Diindolylmethane (converted in the gut from indole 3 carbinol) or taken as a supplement (DIM) turn on phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification enzymes inside the cell. Fact. As far as fatty liver goes, you are probably better off looking at CBD or Lipoic Acid.

    In 1977, John and Eunice were admitted to the hospital in Cleveland, Ohio, in the throes of acute liver failure after ingesting deadly poisonous amanita mushrooms. Liver transplants were not common at that time, and death was inevitable. The chief of medicine assigned their case to Burton Berkson, MD, a medical resident at Case Western Reserve who had never had a patient die under his care, and the chief felt he needed the experience.

    Although his instructions were clear—observe and report on these deaths—Dr. Berkson contacted Fred Bartter, MD, at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and asked if he knew anything that might be helpful. Dr. Bartter mentioned alpha lipoic acid (ALA), citing animal studies showing that it helped with severe liver damage, and offered to overnight several vials. The next day, Dr. Berkson began administering intravenous alpha lipoic acid to these patients. Its effect was miraculous. Alpha lipoic acid stimulated rapid liver regeneration, and within two weeks, they were discharged from the hospital in good health. John and Eunice lived for 36 more years, well into their late 80s, forever indebted to Dr. Berkson and this incredible nutrient for liver disease.

    Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive component of marijuana, which has anti-inflammatory effects. It has also been approved by FDA for various orphan diseases for exploratory trials. Herein, we investigated the effects of CBD on liver injury induced by chronic plus binge alcohol feeding in mice. CBD or vehicle was administered daily throughout the alcohol feeding study. At the conclusion of the feeding protocol, serums samples, livers or isolated neutrophils were utilized for molecular biology, biochemistry and pathology analysis. CBD significantly attenuated the alcohol feeding-induced serum transaminase elevations, hepatic inflammation (mRNA expressions of TNFα, MCP1, IL1β, MIP2 and E-Selectin, and neutrophil accumulation), oxidative/nitrative stress (lipid peroxidation, 3-nitrotyrosine formation, and expression of reactive oxygen species generating enzyme NOX2). CBD treatment also attenuated the respiratory burst of neutrophils isolated from chronic plus binge alcohol fed mice or from human blood, and decreased the alcohol-induced increased liver triglyceride and fat droplet accumulation. Furthermore, CBD improved alcohol-induced hepatic metabolic dysregulation and steatosis by restoring changes in hepatic mRNA or protein expression of ACC-1, FASN, PPARα, MCAD, ADIPOR-1, and mCPT-1. Thus, CBD may have therapeutic potential in the treatment of alcoholic liver diseases associated with inflammation, oxidative stress and steatosis, which deserves exploration in human trials.

  12. I take chlorella for the iron. 2g contains 4mg of iron. Just something I have always struggled with, before and after I went vegan.

  13. Thank you for this video. I suffer from NAFLD, depression and anxiety. The pills don’t work. Time to invest in a natural remedy.

  14. I used to take take chlorella years ago. I wonder if any of the Mercury detoxifying claims are true. Also, some guy on YouTube tried to claim it was toxic or something

  15. Wait, wait, wait, you mean that eggs do raise cholesterol levels? Oh, my stars! Interesting research tidbits about a superfood many of us plant-based people use as a matter of course. TFP!

  16. they give chlorella to patients healing from chemotheraphy. doesn't seem sort of ridiculous to suggest people should be taking such a strong supplement when the healthcare community uses it for more serious maters

  17. Heavy metal-free Triphala powder, or simply amla powder, with those cholesterol raising, cancer inducing foods, would be MUCH better in reducing cholesterol and protecting you from HCA than this

  18. ppl do it wrong
    chlorella and spirulina r the finest most caloricly dense protein sources on this wrong
    not fart inducing, no lectin shit
    sadly pretty dry stuff, but much better than gayening fart inducing soy
    look up spirulina's aminoacid profile…its nearly perfect…even better than animal protein

    chlorella is more of a micronutrient-boost
    try eating 5×1 tablespoon (at least semi-high quality) chlorella thruout ONE day and ull see its power, ull get much more body aware n stuff, sit straight etc…its really nice
    spirulina is cheaper and u can just eat the tablets
    they r the best/cheapest/most available protein source on this planet and raw and vegan that i know of

    fuck beans and grains and their trash aminoacid profile and the fact that they need to be cooked and r nearly indigestable and fart inducing!!!!!!!!
    all hail spirulingo

  19. Dr greger,

    Can you make a video about multiple sclerosis and how to treat it? Im a nurse and am currently having seminars about it but the thing is that they only promote pills and say that it’s the only thing that can help people from the desease.

    They never mention nutrition or other possible alternatives to help people that are suffering from it.

    Can you tell about multiple sclerosis and possible alternatives to help people, other than constantly give drugs?

    Thank you 🙏🏾

  20. Don't let meat eaters watch this video if not chlorella world storage is going to disappear… Stop eating meat and eggs not way… as always do not take supplements but eat a whole plant based diet.

  21. I’d like to see a video on some of the “nootropic” mushrooms, such as lion’s mane. Wondering if it’s all placebo/marketing.

  22. I don’t always take chlorella but when I do I take 12-15 grams to detox mercury, which I do often because of amalgam filling removals.

  23. Chlorella tastes great, buy good quality because it can come with toxins if grown in polluted waters.

  24. I need an advise, on another subject.. blad gladder stone – any information on possibility to melt it with right food? I am vegan for few months, after years of vegeterian. But before I was eating meet so it is – a suvenir in my glad bladder 😉 any chance to get rid of it without being operated? I never had any medical procedure done yet and prefare to stay like that 🙂

  25. Wait, isn't "detox" is a term from alternaive medicine, which means to clean bidy from so-called "toxins", an invented pseudo-scientific term? Never expected to see such terms in the name of the video on this channel!

  26. Hi guys. This is my second week of being on a vegan diet and was wondering if there is any tips on having less gas or having more solid long stools? Thanks.

  27. Vega Chlorella tablets from Japan in my frig at all times. Always chew the tablets….they taste good and you can add them to trail mix when on the go. To my morning coffee I add chaga mushroom…..later pour boiling water over a few threads of Spanish Saffron in a cup (better in tea than coffee) for sipping anytime during the day or adding to Earl Gray tea brewed with 1/4 tsp turmeric, ginger and true cinnamon each. At the end of the day to have a perfect sleep 1 tsp algae oil, 6-9 pistachios + a few froz cranberries……….healthy vegan for 7 years thanks to Dr. Greger, etc. No more irregular heart beat, weight loss and blood sugar stable……..very happy (my son too – never wants to back to meat and dairy).

  28. @Dr. Greger: I very much appreciate the service you do for all of us. Love your delivery also–very entertaining! High production value, as they say. I ordered HOW NOT TO DIE, and it's on its way; but I am really more interested in HOW TO NOT DIE. I'm hoping the book will help with that too. Anyway, thank you, thank you, thank you!

  29. If you're using chlorella to detoxify you need cilantro aswell. The cilantro pulls toxins from the cells and the chlorella then binds the toxins.

  30. Every time I see the word “Chlorella” I read it as “Cholera”, which is perhaps problematic 🤣 I’m sure I’m not the only one who does that.

  31. I´ve been using chlorella for many years and it is a wonder food. The flaw of the studies shown here is that they measure the efficacy of chlorella with studies that are a few weeks long. Chlorella is a very subtle supplement, it will not change things overnight or in a few weeks. Now, in my case, it does absolutely nothing to control my high colesterol, zero, BUT it helps me quite a lot on energy and mood, not to mention digestive issues. I have tried many supplements in my life, and by far chlorella is #1 in my list. I use chlorenergy Brand and have also used Sun Brand, they are the best. I will not buy cheap chinese brands that are full of toxins .  FYI I take between 2 and 4 grams a day on an empty stomach with lots of water. Last but not least, do NOT take vitamin C with chlorella since chlorella will bind all vit C and flush it out.  Either you take chlorella or vit C, and yes, it has been researched and documented, it is not acnedotal. Sorry for my English, it is not my first language.

  32. Theres 2 types of chlorella 1: chlorella vulgaris and 2: chlorella pyrenoidosa.
    The one in these test is vulgaris, pyrenoidosa is supposed to be better , also Taiwanese chlorella is the best it's the least polluted and has the least heavy metals in it especially the organic ones. Also I want to know if chlorella has b12 in it or not, cuz some brands say it has high amount in it and other brands say trace. Isn't this something very important to test , cuz I'd rather take my b12 from something natural than vitamin b12 tablets.
