Recent scientific studies indicate that chlorella has a very interesting antifungal potential. The results of the latest studies by Professor Meghan Duffy, an expert in infectious diseases (University of Michigan, USA), encourage her to continue her research into the use of chlorella as an antifungal agent for humans.
Thanks to testimonials from eChlorial organic chlorella consumers, we already knew that chlorella helps to resolve candidiasis(candida albicans) problems with surprising efficiency and speed… and without any identifiable deleterious side-effects!
It was by studying the influence of the food environment on water fleas, and in particular their ability to fight pathogenic fungi, that the protective role of chlorella was revealed.
“In conclusion, it appears that the different types ofalgae that water fleas can consume clearly influence their ability to avoid infestation by the fungus or not. Three of these species even completely prevented infection […] When water fleas consumed Anabaena, Microcystis, or Chlorella, they were not infected. While Anabaena and Microcystis produce toxins that are dangerous to humans, Chlorella is consumed and sold as a health food supplement. The team will continue research to test chlorella as an anti-fungal for humans.”
“Fungal diseases (due to the action of a pathogenic fungus) have a real negative impact on our health. We tend to think they’re not very important, but 1.5 million people die every year from these diseases, and there are very few effective antifungal drugs available. So there’s a real need,” she says.”

Human diseases caused by the presence of fungi are significant, and to date there are few drugs available to combat them. Tomorrow, new “chlorella-based” antifungal medicines could become part of the Western pharmacopoeia!
