I know in my episode it was the caffeine, but if you take other supplements that also provide energy like a b-complex or b-12; combined they could cause a calming/relaxed/sleepy affect, too much causes the opposite affect.

Yep, I just started taking a B-complex to replace the biotin I had to stop taking. I hope this wears off. I am at work sleepy right now.

I'm thinking that you guys with this effect are just exhausted from detoxing. Your body goes through a lot in that process, and it needs rest. Maybe your body needed a break just to catch up with everything.

Fatigue is one of the detox symptoms and that can manifest in many ways: just feeling tired, or probably the sleepiness.

This makes sense too if it's not just fatigue....

I'm wondering if I should stop taking my other vitamins now??

I take:

Fish Oil
Biotin
B-Complex
L-Cystine
Vitamin C
Evening Primose Oil
Flax Seed Oil
Horsetail
Aloe Vera Juice
Liquid Multivitamin




Should I stop taking all the others now since i'm taking Chlorella?

It's really up to you. You should go back to the list of ingredients that I provided and others added to. For instance Omegas are in there and that covers fish oil, b complex is in there (when you get to a higher dose of chlorella you could stop taking that), vitamin c is in there, all the amino acids including L cysteine is in there, Flaxseed also has omega and so does chlorella, it balances the body which primrose does, the liquid multivitamin you may as well call chlorella a multivitamin that's not a vitamin as it's a super food it has better qualities than any vitamins as it can help the body better (read article I posted about vitamin vs superfood), not sure about horsetail, biotin or aloevera. Assuming you're taking those for hair growth and we already know that chlorella does that (or will do it with time). Aloe vera also regulates the system (#2), but we know chlorella does that too. Also unlike biotins forever breakouts, you may only break out when chlorella cleanses the body, but then it's silky smooth skin city (and I can attest to that right now.). So anyways I could safely say I'd let go of them, only if you wish to. I'm not taking anything else. I eat veggies for vitamins, and take chlorella for vitamins, and then eat my seafood (and sometimes chicken) so that's all folks! I really just like simplifying. It gets exhausting trying to keep up with so many thing that just don't do anything.

I know I posted part of this earlier but just wanted to post the whole thing. For other vitamin mineral stuff, view past article posts on this thread. Because the same questions pop up: Should this be your only vitamin, does it count as a vitamin, what exactly is cfg. IT also contains some cool stuff about why it's actually SUPERIOR to MEAT PROTEIN. Who knew. That does NOT mean to stop eating meat if you eat it, it just means, that the body processes chlorella better. It also gives more info on other good stuff like curing disease, easing symptoms, etc :
http://www.watershed.net/ch-faq.aspx#26

What nutrients are in Chlorella?

Amino acids (protein), enzymes (including pepsin for digestion), vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates. One could easily live on nothing else. Along with Spirulina, it is one of the world's more perfect and powerful foods.

How much protein does it have?
60% of Chlorella is protein, which is in the form of amino acids.Chlorella contains 18 of 22 known amino acids and is considered a complete protein, meaning that it has the essential 8 amino acids. It is a far superior protein source to others such as meat, fish and eggs because these are secondary protein, meaning that the amino acids have already been formed into protein to become the flesh of an egg or another animal. When we eat a food such as meat, our bodies must first break down the protein into amino acids then reform them into the proteins that our body needs. This is inefficient and not nearly as effective as simply taking pure amino acids to begin with.
The human body wants to form long complex chains of amino acids into the tens of thousands of different protein structures the body needs to perform functions all over the body. However, if one amino acid is missing, then an incomplete protein will form that will not function as effectively as a complete protein. There is no other natural source of protein available that provides such a complete and balanced array of amino acids than Chlorella and Spirulina.
Will Chlorella give me energy?
Yes. As the body begins to get these pure nutrients that it must have to function properly, increased vitality and energy will certainly follow. Spirulina is also a very potent source of energy. A gram or two of Chlorella or Spirulina in the morning will provide the body with lots of energy. However, unlike sugar, caffeine or other "energy pick-me-ups", Chlorella and Spirulina do not lift you up then let you down soon after because they are not drugs of any sort. They are pure nutrients. They last much long and since they are pure nutrients, there is never a let-me-down or "low feeling" afterward. This is also true of Ionized Water.
Should a person keep taking vitamins once they start taking Chlorella?
It would not hurt to keep taking multivitamins with Chlorella, but in our opinion multivitamins are not needed. Chlorella and Spirulina contain a wide array of vital vitamins, minerals and enzymes and yet are much more economical than most vitamins.
Isn't Chlorella just another form of vitamins?
No. Chlorella is a whole-food, very much unlike most commercial vitamins. While it contains a wide array of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, Chlorella is superior to vitamin supplements in many ways, one being that it is natural and the vitamins and minerals in Chlorella are bio-chelated, which means they are naturally wrapped in amino acids so the body will more readily take them in. Vitamins are nothing more than an amalgam of concentrates and extracts that have been artificially stitched together because on paper they look like they should provide balanced nutrition. A whole food such as Chlorella provides the body with a stunning amount of nutrients that are naturally balanced, can NEVER accumulate in the body and become toxic and therefore are far superior to any man-made nutritional formula.


*****What is the Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)?
*****The CGF is an amalgam of RNA, DNA, amino acids, vitamins and minerals whose exact properties have not yet been identified. In children it promotes rapid growth; in adults, it builds their immune systems while promoting rapid tissue healing, both internally and externally. It also strengthens our body's ability to recover quickly from strenuous exercise and even disease. The CGF is central to Chlorella's amazing ability to heal the human body and is what makes Chlorella THE most powerful whole food in existence.

How does Chlorella detoxify the body?
Chlorella has an indigestible outer fibrous shell that must be broken open in order to get at the nutrients and CGF. It is this fibrous outer shell that actually binds with heavy metals in the blood to pull them out of the tissue and bloodstream. This detoxification of heavy metals and other chemical toxins in the blood will take 3-6 months to build up enough to begin this process depending on the dosage of Chlorella a person is taking. It is also this fibrous material that greatly augments healthy digestion and overall digestive tract health.
As previously discussed, many of the health problems that face the elderly today, including dementia to Alzheimer’s Disease can be traced in part to the accumulation of toxins and heavy metals in the body and brain, as well as chronic lack of the assimilation of nutrients because of the depletion of digestive enzymes and bacteria. These must be removed by detoxification on a continuous basis throughout a person's life if they expect to remain healthy. Chlorella is a superior digestive that enhances and facilitates the intake of nutrients when taken before eating.
The level of acidity or alkalinity in the body is critical. A soft drink such as a cola has a pH 2.5. Our bodies should maintain a pH in the neighborhood of 7.0. This means the cola is literally thousands of time more acidic than our bodies. It also means that an extremely acid liquid such as a soft drink is sitting in a aluminum container that has a neutral pH. Since nature always strives remain balances in every sense, it can be assumed that the cola with a pH 2.5 is trying to leach the aluminum from the neutral can in order to balance itself. If you must drink soda, never drink it from a can. Never cook in aluminum pots or pans, or use antiperspirants with aluminum in them. They may slowly accumulate in your body and brain through years of continuous use.

No, mine was not simply fatigue. I am a day sleeper, I am a sleep specialist by trade. I had my normal amount of sleep and I am no longer detoxing. The natural energizer in the chlorella/spirulina, of which I take both had a reaction with the caffeine I drank with the tea.

The other poster also stated she just started taking a b-complex supplement. These combinations will bring you down. Had it been just the spirulina/chlorella, as the reading states they do not have a crashing affect, however it does not address the additional supplements which is what we are doing in our cases, and we are crashing as a result.

I saw green poo after 4g which I am currently on. I have not witnessed any of the other benefits and but I have not even been on it for a week. I am detoxing though and like LD said the benefits should come after the detox. I have had bloating, been irregular, had a mild headache, fatigue, and mild aches in the body that usually go away by the end of the day. I have noticed that my poo does not smell bad anymore! Last time I went it smelled faintly like a pond in the bathroom and that's it and my farts aren't smelly so I guess I am experiencing the clearing of odor in the body that it does. I'm not gonna add a 'TMI' disclaimer in here because I think we are all past that now and can openly talk about BMs as it pertains to the topic of this thread.

Ok. I'm very backed up in that area generally so I was hoping to see those results most of all.
Once your poo is green then you're taking the right amount? Mine is green and I'm only taking 2gs one in am and one in pm.

BUT - i have had no detox symptoms or anything.

I guess I'm still in detox mode. My fever came back a bit last night but is gone now. I must have had about 3 hours of sleep in total because I could not sleep. I was wide awake between 12am and 2am and my alarm goes off at 5am. So I took the day off to get through this phase.

Oh yeah I was slightly constipated yesterday but had a BM this morning and it was green. I've been taking only 1.5g so I might up the dose this weekend.

Default Re: How about taking Chlorella?

Ladies,

Ok, I almost hate to ask this but I have to. The Chlorella is making me constipated. I started out taking 1 gram last week and then increased to 2 grams. I took 3 grams yesterday.

I'm trying to decide if I should scale back or not. I'm going to do a search on it but I just thought I'd ask. I think I read upthread that I should probably scale back...

ETA: As an update; other than the constipation I haven't had any other detox symptoms. As for benefits I've noticed an increase in energy. Thats about it. I haven't noticed in changes in my nails (they're already pretty hard and they grow fast anyway). No changes in my skin, hair, etc.

Default Re: How about taking Chlorella?

For two days I had been very exhausted as well, and I knew that it was a result of hte detox. It was very hard to stay awake. I got a few zits, and my poo si green, and also my gas issues don't smell too great, but hopefully it will all clear up soon. I bought the Earthrise chlorella capsules, a 15 day supply, almost finished with that. I followed somebody's advice, can't remember, and went to Amazon and got the Source Naturals powder, 151 servings for 25 bucks after choosing an autoship option that sends it every 6 months. It's worth it for the discount and the free shipping. I ordered it like 3 days ago, it just came by UPS a few minutes ago.

I looked at the vitamin content, and for me, it does't have as much B vitamins as I am used to taking, whcih is usually around 1500mg, this only has 70mcg (micrograms) of b-12, and .31 of b-6. which to me isn't enough of B vits.. . I'm going ot check and see how much Omega is in here as well, as I take that.

Right now I take biotin, MSM, b vits, chlorella, flax oil, spirulina, kelp and a weight loss supplement. I am hoping to knock off the biotin if anything and keep all the others or maybe get a greens mix that has the kelp and sea veggies, along wtih spirulina. That way I can do a greens mix, and keep my msm and b vits. The msm helps my joints tremendously, which hurt a lot in the winter, and also has changed my hair texture for the better. So I gotta keep that one.

so far I have noticed my nails are hard as bricks now, are growing like crazy, so myhair must be as well, hopefully. I am hardly ever hungry. When I take these, it takes a few minutes and my appetite is gone. I've been eating negligible amounts of food daily while taking this because I can no longer eat alot. I just always feel full and stuffed. I can take a few bites of something and be done. I am liking this effect. It has me going alot ot the toilet, and therefore, I've had some soreness down there, I knkow, yuck, but better out than in.

I was a little irregular and couldn't go and it only passed when I bumped up my dose. After I added 6g of spirulina in addition to the chlorella I had NO problems at all with constipation.

Interesting. I was afraid of making matters worse. This is good to note as I try to make a decision on what to do.

Thanks Muse.

Not that you're taking the correct amount, but that you're at least taking an appropriate amount. The article goes on to suggest the amounts necessary to maintain and for disease prevention and fighting which are both higher doses.

Not only do I want great health but I want significant change (hair, nails) so I'm upping it!
How long is everyone staying at the same dose before upping it. I am taking 5 pills or 2g now comfortably, should I go up a pill a day, every 3 days, weekly, etc. What does everyone else do?

It doesn't matter. Scale back w/constipation or diarrhea. If you did not have constipation at 2 scale back to 2, if it was at 1 go back there. Then increase after you are regular (a week after regularity you want to wait until the body adjusts to the doses) then Id say go up a 1/2 gram from there since you've had detox problems with a smaller amount. So if you were at 1 and regular in a week go up to 1 1/2, and maybe if your body is okay with that in a few days from there go up to 2, and stay there for a while as you had a problem w/ 3 make sure your body adjusts and is okay, then up another half until you get to 3. For those with very sensitive bodies, you should really be diligent about slowly increasing your amount. You may have only increased 3 grams or so in a month, whereas someone who is less sensitive may have gone up to 8 or 9 grams.

I got a few zits, and my poo si green, and also my gas issues don't smell too great, but hopefully it will all clear up soon. I bought the Earthrise chlorella capsules, a 15 day supply, almost finished with that. I followed somebody's advice, can't remember, and went to Amazon and got the Source Naturals powder, 151 servings for 25 bucks after choosing an autoship option that sends it every 6 months. It's worth it for the discount and the free shipping. I ordered it like 3 days ago, it just came by UPS a few minutes ago.

I looked at the vitamin content, and for me, it does't have as much B vitamins as I am used to taking, whcih is usually around 1500mg, this only has 70mcg (micrograms) of b-12, and .31 of b-6. which to me isn't enough of B vits.. . I'm going ot check and see how much Omega is in here as well, as I take that.

Right now I take biotin, MSM, b vits, chlorella, flax oil, spirulina, kelp and a weight loss supplement. I am hoping to knock off the biotin if anything and keep all the others or maybe get a greens mix that has the kelp and sea veggies, along wtih spirulina. That way I can do a greens mix, and keep my msm and b vits. The msm helps my joints tremendously, which hurt a lot in the winter, and also has changed my hair texture for the better. So I gotta keep that one.

so far I have noticed my nails are hard as bricks now, are growing like crazy, so myhair must be as well, hopefully. I am hardly ever hungry. When I take these, it takes a few minutes and my appetite is gone. I've been eating negligible amounts of food daily while taking this because I can no longer eat alot. I just always feel full and stuffed. I can take a few bites of something and be done. I am liking this effect. It has me going alot ot the toilet, and therefore, I've had some soreness down there, I knkow, yuck, but better out than in.

Told ya. For those who need to have their bodies regulated (weight) some how it gives you the nutrients you need to feel full. You'll take a bite and be done. I really think thats cool. Sorry about the soreness I'm sure it'll get better. Also as you increase your dosage you may start to feel that you're getting enough vitamins but if you don't think you're getting what you need via food and chlorella sure take other stuff!
