Pregnant Women

The three most common problems that pregnant women have to face are:

Anemia is characterized by a decreased level of red blood cells or low levels of hemoglobin in the blood. By supplementing with iron, the human body can generate more oxygenate blood cells and bodies more efficiently.

Edema caused by excess fluid in the tissues. Women are prone to edema mostly during the third quarter, when the growing uterus presses on the veins of the pelvis and the large vein that travels from the lower extremities to the heart.

Proteinuria: urine is an abnormal amount of protein. It results inflamed kidney that are leaking blood protein.

Chlorella supplements can be useful as a source of natural folate, vitamin B12 and iron for pregnant women. In a study of nutrition in pregnant women, Nakano et al., (2010) found that the proportion of subjects with anemia in Chlorella group was significantly lower compared with the control group in the second and third quarters.

Similarly, the occurrence of anemia in the second and third quarters, as measured by the hemoglobin level was significantly lower in the group supplemented with Chlorella. The proportion of women with edema was also significantly lower in the group supplemented with Chlorella. Not only that, but the function of the heart and the kidney was better overall in the group of Chlorella, with levels of protein in the urine in a normal state.

So Chlorella supplementation significantly reduces the risk of anemia, proteinuria and edema during pregnancy.
