Everybody is unique and everybody will respond a little different to different things. It should be understood that not everything is meant for everybody. There are people allergic to peanuts, shellfish, and many other foods. Therefore, it should be no surprise that an individual could potentially have some side effects when first starting to add chlorella to their diet.
Although adverse reactions are rare with people. We at Wuji, who believe in the power of adding Chlorella to your diet, think it is important you know about the potential adverse effects.
The most common side effect individuals experience when beginning to add chlorella, a whole food, to their diet are an increase in bowel movements, green stools, and flatulence. Even more rare, some individuals have nausea, vomiting, and an allergic reaction.
Chlorella should Not be taken with blood thinners. There is one case that indicates an interaction between Chlorella and the prescription blood thinning drug Warfarin (Coumadin). It is thought that this occurred due to the Vitamin K in Chlorella, which has coagulation or blood clotting properties. It is recommended by the Mayo Clinic to stay away from spinach, collard greens, and other green foods when taking Warfarin (Coumadin) due to the same reason stated above.
Remember everybody is unique, so listen to your body when starting anything new.
No body will care more about your life or health than you do. Therefore, educate yourself so you can make the final decision when it comes to your life and health.
