Severe Nausea and Vomiting
Posted by 5393276339157193896 on Jul 08, 2014
I dont normally write reviews, however as I developed severe Nausea and Vomiting from this product I decided to share this experience. I have not tried any other brands, so I do not know if it is just the Chlorella or if this brand is manufactured differently. For the first few weeks I was tolerating it well. I was getting mild headaches, and mild upset stomach. But I thought these were maybe detox symptoms. However, symptoms became worse, and so I stopped taking them. My symptoms went away after about 24-48 hours. Then I decided to try again, and immediately about 3 hours later woke up from sleep and had an extreme amount of nausea followed by 5 minutes of intense vomiting. I have not vomited in maybe 9 years before this. I have not had chlorella before for an ongoing basis, but I have had spirulina for a long period with no issues. I can also see online that this may be a side effect of Chlorella in some people. Just wanted to share my experience for others to be aware if they experience similar symptoms.

Wow, Chlorella give me a headache! Took a while before I knew it. Once I linked taking chlorella with my 'narcotic' headaches I wanted to be sure. So, I stopped and start taking it for another two times. Now I'm sure: gave me a headache! Not only the Chlorella by Now Foods btw, another brand does too.
waste of money
