Scientific Reports and Clinical Studies on Chlorella as Anti-tumor effects/ Anti Cancer effect Breast, leukemia or Ehrlich ascites/ Glioblastoma/ Immune Booster
Chlorella is a tiny single-celled water-grown green alga that contains the highest chlorophyll level per ounce of any plant, as well as protein (nearly 58 percent), carbohydrates, all of the B vitamins, vitamins C and E, amino acids (including all nine essential ones), enzymes, and rare trace minerals. Chlorella strengthens the immune system.
In 1990, a study on chlorella was performed at the Medical College of Virginia. Fifteen glioblastoma patients were administered 20 grams of powdered chlorella and 150 ml of liquid chlorella, in some cases combined with standard chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. There was a significant increase in health and immune status immediately, and a striking 40 percent two-year survival rate was reflected in follow-up studies. This is extremely rare for this type of tumor, which normally might yield a 10 percent survival rate after two years.
Most research has been done on a one-celled alga known as chlorella. This has been shown to have powerful anti-tumor effects. An oral administration of chlorella protected between 73 and 80 percent of mice against several kinds of cancer. However, all the mice that received chlorella that had been deprived of its protein, died.
Japanese scientists studied chlorella (pyrenoidosa) as a biological response modifier. First, experimental mice were given chlorella every other day for ten days. Then one of three kinds of cancer—breast, leukemia or Ehrlich ascites—were injected into them. All of the untreated mice died within 20 days. But over 70 percent of the treated ani-
Since chlorella does not directly kill cancer cells, the scientists concluded that its effects were caused by boosting the immune response
In another experiment, a group of scientists took a hot water extract of chlorella and injected it into the body cavities of mice that had first been inoculated with tumor cells. They found that "survival times were strikingly prolonged." Furthermore, when they gave mice injections of chlorella, their cells still exhibited "an anti-tumor effect" 24 hours later. This effect remained intact even after 'T' type white blood cells and macrophage (scavenger) cells were destroyed, but it was effectively wiped out by irradiation. Chlorella's anticancer effect was thus dependent on the portion of the immune system most sensitive to x-rays.
Since chlorella has a true nucleus, it is a more evolved organism than the other common green micro-algae and therefore may offer superior-quality RNA/DNA. This particular aspect of its RNA/DNA, measured by the Chlorella Growth Factor, strengthens immunity by improving the activity of T- and B-cells, which defend against viruses and other invading microorganisms, and macrophages, which destroy cancer and cellular debris in general.
Chlorella helps protect the body in its fight against both viruses and cancer. A series of studies during the 1980s showed that tumor growth in mice could be reduced or stopped by injecting a water solution of chlorella…
This research, says Tim Sara, president of Nature's Balance, a major U.S. supplier of chlorella, "has confirmed that serum levels of albumin are extremely accurate indicators of overall health status and that low albumin levels exist at the onset and progression of virtually every nonhereditary, degenerative disease process, including cancers and cardiovascular heart disease." A series of studies with rats demonstrated that chlorella supplementation increases albumin levels by 16% to
There have been dozens of animal studies on chlorella and chlorella extracts involving immune response to cancer. One such study involved mice given chlorella prior to transplantation of mammary carcinoma. The results were a 70 percent sixty-day survival of the chlorella group versus no survival in the control group. Mice in the control group were also transplanted with tumors but did not receive chlorella.
Lactoferrin, lipoic acid, and chlorella are the three best supplements I have found for enhancing the nutritional status and raising the albumin level of those with cancer or any chronic illness. Lactoferrin, an iron-binding protein, is a vital element to the human body. It retrieves iron from the foods we eat and delivers it to areas of the body where it is needed. Many people, particularly those with cancer, become anemic because their body is not assimilating iron properly.
A chlorella extract has demonstrated antitumor and antime-tastatic effects in animal experiments. Chlorella has shown some experimental antiatherogenic activity and some radio-protective and chemo-detoxifying effects. It has shown some preliminary benefit in immune function and in some with fibromyalgia.
I also recommend the use of chlorella, which is a highly nutritive one-cell blue-green algae that is a powerful immune system stimulant that also has demonstrated anti-tumor effects. Research has shown that chlorella is able to repair DNA and increase serum albumin levels.
Green chlorophyll is the main coloring matter in all green plants, and it relates most closely to Qi, the life force. Green plants and algae are high in chlorophyll, include spirulina and chlorella. Foods and herbs that contain high levels of chlorophyll show pharmacological evidence of cancer prevention, perhaps because pigments in green vegetables such as spinach, kale, broccoli, and lettuce bind with and thus stimulate excretion of cancer-causing chemicals. Even more interesting is a report from one researcher that "Given their exclusive dietary origin, . . . chlorophyll metabolites may represent essential nutrients that coordinate cellular metabolism (through nuclear receptors)."
Chlorella: 1 to 2 teaspoons two or more times daily. Dense and nutrient rich in vitamins, minerals and easily assimilable protein, it supports the immune system of patients undergoing chemo and radiation therapy, increases phagocytes, T-cells and cancer killing B cells.
In all anticancer diets, one should incorporate chlorophyll-rich foods derived from the juice of wheat grass, barley grass or a special green algae known in the trade as chlorella. Chlorella, has been found to have greater anticancer properties than any other anticancer supplement. Of course, these 'green foods' are very rich in a wide variety of vitamins, minerals and other health-giving constituents as well.
I recommend chlorella to all cancer patients regardless of any other green drink they might use. Chlorella is a small, one-celled algae containing a nucleus and a large amount of chlorophyll. Its protein content is approximately 58% with the balance made up of carbohydrates, all the B Vitamins, Vitamin C and E, amino acids and valuable trace minerals. It has more B12 than liver and a substantial amount of beta-carotene. Because it has a strong cell wall, it requires processing in order to make all of its nutrients available. It is virtually a complete food in itself. It acts as both a powerful nutrient and a detoxifying food.
