A study shows the effectiveness of chlorella consumed as a dietary supplement (5g/day) to reduce the risk of mortality. Cardiovascular diseases are the first cause of mortality due to the aging of the population. A high level of cholesterol in the blood represents a major risk.
According to a recent and very serious study, the daily consumption of 5 g of Chlorella would make it possible to maintain the cholesterol level in blood in spite of a food enriched in grease. 5 g of chlorella corresponds to a level teaspoon.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study (*) was conducted with 34 healthy adult participants for 4 weeks. They consumed 3 eggs each day, i.e. 510 mg of cholesterol. Some also consumed a placebo while others consumed 5 g of chlorella per day.
The results indisputably show that the serum lipid level was maintained in the participants supplemented with chlorella unlike the others.

“The results suggest that a fully replicated dietary cholesterol challenge may be used in assessing the effectiveness of dietary supplements in maintaining the serum lipid profiles of adults whose habitual diets are high in cholesterol.”
Dietary cholesterol challenge study to assess the effectiveness of chlorella supplementation in maintaining normal lipid levels in adults: controlled by a randomized, double-blind placebo study.
The results show that the serum lipid level of adults whose diet was enriched in cholesterol and supplemented with chlorella was maintained. This study proves the effectiveness of dietary supplements in controlling the serum lipid level of healthy adults whose diet is rich in cholesterol.
