First Human Study to Show 'Sun Chlorella A' Supports Heart Health
Date:3/30/2009

RICHMOND, Va., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- A new study, published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, showed that consumption of as little as 8 grams (1/3 ounce) of "Sun Chlorella A" daily resulted in noticeable reductions in body fat percentage, serum total cholesterol, and fasting blood glucose levels.

For a 12-week period, 34 participants ingested four grams of "Sun Chlorella A" tablets each morning and evening. Seventeen subjects were healthy; the other 17 were at high risk for developing lifestyle-related illnesses.

Both groups had a decrease in body fat percentage and total serum cholesterol. However, the high-risk group also experienced lowered blood glucose, possibly due to improved insulin sensitivity induced by adding Chlorella to the daily diet.

Heart disease and stroke are the number one and three causes of death for both men and women in the U.S. Risk factors include elevated serum cholesterol, high blood pressure, a sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy diet, smoking, obesity, and hyperglycemia.

According to Mark Drucker, M.D., "Heart health is important to everyone. Remember, our hearts must be nourished to stay healthy. With protein, minerals, vitamins and fiber, Sun Chlorella is what I take, and what I recommend to all my patients."

Chlorella is a single-cell, fresh water green alga. Past research has shown that Chlorella is effective for immune activation, growth promotion, and detoxification of heavy metals and pesticides. However, unlike this recent study, most of the prior research used laboratory animals.

Dr. Randall E. Merchant earned his Doctoral and Master of Sciences degrees from the University of North Dakota. Dr. Merchant is a Professor of Anatomy and Neurosurgery at Virginia Commonwealth University, and has conducted several clinical investigations on the role of nutrition on overcoming the effects of certain chronic illnesses.
