For general health maintenance, 3 – 4 grams per day of Chlorella is recommended. The dosage should be increased to 6 – 8 grams for relieve of actual health symptoms. Cancer patients have been known to consume as much as 30 grams per day. Children can take half to one quarter of the adult dose. Chlorella has been shown to promote rapid growth in children, as well as build superior immune systems.
Chlorella can be taken at any time of the day, but is best taken about half an hour before meal for optimum digestion. The best time to take it is in the morning before breakfast, but never just before or after drinking coffee or soft drinks since caffeine is extremely detrimental to the digestive process. When taken with meals, Chlorella helps in digestion and better assimilation of nutrients from the food. This is due to the fact that Chlorella causes the bacteria in our digestive tract such as Lactobacilli, to multiply at four times the rate of normal. It can be taken all at once or it can be taken in small doses throughout the day. It is a natural whole food, is non-toxic and may be taken in quite large amounts without any unpleasant side effects. In other words, it makes a perfectly safe nutritional supplement.
To date, there have been no reports on detrimental effects on human health resulting from the consumption of Chlorella. However, if an individual has never been on health supplements, then Chlorella should be introduced slowly in the diet with a dosage of 200 mg daily, and slowly increasing it daily. Then again, people who are deficient in cellulose may not be able to tolerate Chlorella. These individuals are advised to consume Chlorella with a good enzyme supplement. Besides ingestion, Chlorella can be powdered and mixed with water into a paste and applied over a cut, scrap, rash or serious wound to help effectively heal it. After consuming Chlorella for approximately one year, an individual will notice significant healing improvements of cuts, scraps, and wounds without the need to apply it topically.
