    No experience and I generally am leary of alternative medicines. I did find this on the American Cancer Society site:
    Chlorella is a single-celled freshwater alga. Chlorella contains vitamin C and carotenoids, both of which are antioxidants (see our documents Beta Carotene, and Vitamin C). Antioxidants are compounds that block the action of free radicals (unstable molecules that can damage cells). Chlorella is also reported to contain high concentrations of iron and B-complex vitamins (see the document Vitamin B Complex).
    These algae are noted for their large amounts of chlorophyll, the chemical that gives plants their green color. Plants require chlorophyll for photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert light into chemical energy. Chlorophyll is also abundant in green leafy vegetables.

    It went on to say that it contains Vitamin K, which can be dangerous for someone on anticoagulates. Anything that makes the blood "thicker" would not be healthy for a diabetic, as glucose does that as well and can result in strokes, heart attacks, etc. Also, Micomedex states that excess doses can cause skin staining and maybe even tumors. So who knows what a safe dose would be?

    I think it makes more sense to find out what foods contain the element and get the product natually. Sorry, but anything in pill form is not natural to me.
