Tip of the Day

Research in Japan has suggested that chlorella stimulates growth and wound healing, and boosts the immune system. Two recent studies specifically examining the effects of chlorella on fibromyalgia indicated that taking a daily dose of chlorella may help relieve symptoms and improve quality of life [Jour Musculoskel Pain;2001:9(4):37]. Another study [Altern Ther Health Med 2001 May-Jun;78(3):79] examined chlorella to see whether consuming natural foods packed with macronutrients had any effect on people who otherwise eat a non-vegetarian diet; participants included people with fibromyalgia, high blood pressure and ulcerative colitis. Chlorella appeared to improve symptoms, though more research is needed. (Source: Natural Treatments for Fibromyalgia: An A to Z Guide, by Kenna Simmons.
