Supermodel Miranda Kerr reportedly swears by taking chlorella supplements daily, and The Doctors get to the bottom of its possible benefits.
The supplement, which is derived from algae grown in Japan and Taiwan, is full of good properties like phosphorus, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, says ER physician Dr. Travis Stork, but he warns against some of the benefit claims. He questions those who say it can help treat or prevent a hangover, prevent cancer or help with Fibromyalgia, calling them “pretty far-fetched.”
The Doctors note that supplement ingredients are not regulated the same way other medications are, therefore the benefits are not conclusive and often not known.
“When something sounds too good to be true in medicine, as in life, it usually is,” OB-GYN Dr. Jennifer Ashton says. “Are you going to get the positive effects people are claiming? And what are the negatives?”
Instead of relying on supplements, plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says to avoid the rigors of time and aging follow these tips:
- Protect your skin from the sun and moisturize daily
As always, consult with your medical care provider when taking any new supplements or vitamins.
