*Review: Algea -dietary supplement-

The first quarter of the year is more or less over and most of the new year’s resolutions are already forgotten. However, being quite stubborn this year, I am still trying to stick to at least some of them. 

As a main part of my resolutions was to eat healthier and try to transition (at least partially) to a plant based diet. For that reason, I was quite excited when I was offered a chance to test Algea, an algae supplement that is supposed to have all sorts of health benefits. I have given it a proper try and here is what I think about it:

A little bit about chlorella

The algae (Chlorella Pyrenoidosa), which is a popular food supplement in Asia and has been used as energy-producing food for centuries, is often used to prevent or curb the spread of cancer, enhance immunity, promote a good balance of bacteria in the gut, and lower blood cholesterol. In Japan, it is traditionally used as a treatment for duodenal ulcers, gastritis, hypertension, diabetes, hypoglycaemia, asthma, and constipation.

It contains more chlorophyll per gram than any other plant in the world
Is the highest known food source for nucleic acids RNA and DNA that are claimed to delay aging process
It contains about 60% absorbable protein; its protein content is one of the largest in the world which makes it a great suplement for vegeterians/vegans
Chlorella is one of the few plant-based absorbable vitamin B12 sources
Some believe that it helps prevent hangovers as it contains almost everything you need to alleviate a hangover.
It is thought to boost the immune system and help fight infection.
It is also used to treat constipation, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure and high cholesterol

My experience and oppinions

Sticking to the proper way of using the tablets, it took me about a month to form my opinion about Algea, I started with one tablet three-times a day and after a week progressed to 3 tablets three-times a day. The packaging contains 250mg of algae and should last you for about a month.

It is easy to incorporate the product into the daily routine, but it might take you a few days to remember you have to take it three times per day. 

Besides that the tablets are easy to take with a bit of water and if you swallow them quick enough, you don’t even notice the slightly green, sea-weed like taste (which to be honest, is not that bad anyways).

As expected by reading the instructions, the effects of the tablets were clearly visible after a week. It speed up my digestive system, there was some bloating but the main effects were visible on my face, with lots of spots appearing as the skin started to deep clean. 

During the second week some imperfections appeared on the other parts of my body as well, especially legs and shoulders, but by the end of the second week, everything seemed to calm down.

While I didn’t notice a spectacular peak of energy, I didn’t get as tired in the afternoons and I did feel like I was a bit more productive, even during the very packed days.

In case you are interested in trying Algea yourself, you can order it on Carso in addition to many other supplements that might interest you. A packet like this will cost you 17,26 € or even less if you become a member of Carso Klub.

  1. Oh grozno... toliko se ti je poznalo na koži?

    Tudi jaz jih imam za testirati, pa imam zadnje čase kar velike težave z dihanjem in resnično nočem ničesar tvegati - ker me popolnoma ohromi.

    Se mi pa zdi, da je preveč stranskih učinkov in preveč tablet (količinsko) za pojest.

    Sem bila pa na začetku navdušena nad testiranjem, dokler nisem videla stranskih učinkov, izpuščajev si res ne želim :)

  2. No, sej je šlo bolj za mozoljčke, na podoben način kot se pojavijo na koži po uporabi gline ali česa podobnega, ki vse to "povleče" iz kože :)
    Če si mislila probleme z dihanjem zaradi astme, jaz nisem imela nobenih problemov :)

  3. This is a great inspiring article.I am pretty much pleased with your good work.You put really very helpful information. Keep it up. Keep blogging. Looking to reading your next post. pure colon detox funciona
