Undisclosed Study Reveals Chlorella Extract Can Challenge Cancer

Asian research in 2010 has demonstrated chlorella has the ability to induce apoptosis, cell suicide, in cancerous cells, making it a potent natural fighter of cancer. 

Normal cells throughout the body are constantly dying off and being replaced. They die from natural death, death from wear and tear, or programmed suicide designed to make way for new cells. Different organs’ cells have different rates of replacement.

Bone cells are slow, measured in years, usually around 10. The liver performs a 300 to 500-day turnaround, or a year or so, of cellular replacement. Others organs and body part cells are faster.

The reason cancer cells become a big problem is that they refuse to die on cue and form tumor masses. So to end cancer, cancerous cells must either be killed off by chemotoxic agents or restored to a level of normalcy that allows them to undergo apoptosis.

Chlorella Vulgaris extract (CVE) is what was used for the study. CVE is available as a product for health-conscious consumers as well as chlorella powders and tablets.

Although chlorella is known to protect and detoxify the liver, a very vital organ that determines our overall health, this study demonstrated how chlorella can help stop cancer proliferation in the liver.

Chlorella is a tiny single-celled blue-green algae that contains a nucleus and enormous amounts of bioavailable chlorophyll along with a plethora of nutrients, essential fatty acids, polysaccharides, and human growth factors.

Very little is publicized about chlorella’s detoxification and regeneration properties. Even less is mentioned about chlorella’s anticancer capability.

Anti-Cancer Effects Of Chlorella Extract Revealed In 2010 Study 

The study was conducted at the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Kebangsaan in Malaysia, and published in the journal Clinic. Its purpose was to confirm known reports of chlorella’s anticancer properties and further analyze the mechanics of how it stops cancer from proliferating. [1]

In order to achieve a specific analysis of the biochemical activities involved between Chlorella Vulgaris and cancer cells, researchers used in vitro methods for their testing. “In vitro” is Latin for “in glass.” So this trial was strictly a test tube and Petri dish matter.

They doused both cancerous liver cells and normal liver cells with Chlorella Vulgaris extract (CVE) to examine the process of inducing apoptosis, which involves creating DNA damage as a precursor.

This was to determine whether or not the damaging effects on cancer cells would affect normal cells, which are already programmed normally for apoptosis. In other words, was the DNA damage cancer-cell-specific or would it affect normal cells too?

In layman’s language, the results showed a 70% increased apoptotic rate in liver cancer cells compared to normal cells. Apoptotic resistant proteins in cancer cells were inhibited by chlorella, while normal cells’ apoptotic programming was left intact.

What about other cancers? Well, some say cancer is cancer, and others claim that some agents work on some cancers, while others don’t. But when it comes to food, which single-cell micro-algae like chlorella actually are, CVE appears to work on several cancers.

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD, of the Klinghardt Academy explains that chlorella is a great preventative, but CVE should be used with plain chlorella for medicinal therapeutic purposes, especially regarding cancer. Klinghardt explains more in the sources below. [2]

So high doses of chlorella coupled with chlorella extract look like a good approach as an adjunct to other natural cancer remedies that include what the Cancer Tutor calls the “cancer diet.” [3]

Chlorella Makes A Great Daily Supplement For Overall Health And Potent Detox

Most people taking chlorella prefer the tiny tablets, but the powder is the most cost-effective if you can handle the taste, which is not as bad as spirulina for most. Mixing the powder with green smoothies is works for some. A tablespoon yields around five grams. I squeeze a bunch of lime into water with a tablespoon of chlorella, mix it well, and dump it down.

Chlorella’s immune boosting and detoxification properties are firmly established. In our toxic, polluted environment, which includes what we eat and drink, we all need to be constantly detoxing and boosting our immune systems. Chlorella offers much in those areas at 3 to 5 grams daily.

But you need to do your research to obtain the highest quality within your means. Mike Adams of Natural News has been using his own lab for purity testing of chlorella products from several sources over determining contamination levels.

I can tell you that the most contaminated chlorella is from China, while Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan offer much less contaminated chlorella. Find out more here.
