Hypertension is a serious public health problem, also increasing the risk of stroke and coronary heart disease and even kidney damage. High blood pressure is defined as a systolic pressure of 140 mm Hg or a mean diastolic pressure of 90 mm Hg or more.

In a recent clinical study of three months, Merchant and André (2001), was subjected to 24 participants with mild to supplement your daily diet with Chlorella hypertension. At the end of the study, 38% of participants had lower blood pressure, and 29% maintained the same level of blood pressure, but without medication.

The results of this study, therefore, indicate that some subjects with mild to moderate hypertension may reduce or keep it stable without medication, only taking Chlorella your daily diet. A daily supplement of Chlorella could have direct and indirect effects on blood pressure and regulatory functions of endothelial cells and can cause vasoconstriction induced by norepinephrine in the arterioles.
