View Full Version : Chlorella Tablets
01-27-2011, 01:14 PM
So, I've started taking Chlorella--everything I've heard about them, it would be insane not to! I'm wondering though--I have them in tablet form, and assumed you chewed them. Yikes, they weren't too unbearable, but from what I understand you have to take a significant number of tablets in order to reap the benefits, and I don't know if I can stomach ten or so at a time, twice or three times a day. Can I just swallow these tablets whole? Or will it not absorb the way it should if I don't chew them first?
Thanks for your input!

I love them too. What brand did you get? I know that makes a difference, though some may just not like the flavor. You can either swallow them with water or add them to smoothies or soups. You can grind them into a powder for easy blending.

i believe powder is the best, or chew tablets.
Spirulina powder is much harder to bear than Chlorella powder.

I've been taking chlorella for years now and tried chewing the tablets once and blah! big mistake it tasted .. well it tasted just the way it smells yuck!
I take the powder because its a little more powerful, I get it from my naturopath and I also take the tablets which i swallow whole that I get from both the Dr Clements site and Dr Mercolas site.
Spirulina is also a strong strong powder, much easier taking those in tablets and swallowing whole too.
When I have my chlorella drink I wont breathe out of my nose till I have chewed on a piece of fruit after lol... Its gross but it works.. - now I sound like a commercial for cough syrup.
CHLORELLA IS VERY GOOD FOR YOU, just get it down!

Chlorella - I take tablets in the morning and before bed. I also tried chewing them and :thud:. We will be buying powder so we can just add it to green juices in the morning. :)
Spirullina - I also think that the taste is a lot stronger making it harder to eat. My BF sprinkled it on top of the avocados in my salad. That tasted pretty good and that is the way I am taking it from now on. Works for me!
Gotta suck it up and just take it! They're both amazing for you!
