Topic: Chlorella Supplementation May Decrease Dioxin Levels and Increase IgA Levels in Breast Milk

Keywords: PREGNANCY, NURSING, BREAST MILK - Chlorella Pyrenoidosa, Chlorella Tablet, IgA, Immunoglobulin A, Dioxin

Reference: "Chlorella (Chlorella pyrenoidosa) Supplementation Decreases Dioxin and Increases Immunoglobulin A Concentrations in Breast Milk," Nakano S, Nakano M, et al, J Med Food; 2007; 10(1): 134-42. (Address: Saiseikai Nara Hospital, Nara, Hokkaido, Japan. E-Mail: [email protected] ).

Summary: In a controlled study involving 35 women, results suggest that maternal supplementation with Chlorella pyrenoidosa (Chlorella) may reduce dioxin levels in breast milk and increase IgA levels (immunoglobulin A). The women received Chlorella tablets (n=1Cool or no Chlorella tablets (n=17) during pregnancy. Toxic equivalents were found to be significantly lower in breast milk of women in the Chlorella supplemented group, compared to women in the control group. Additionally, IgA concentrations in breast milk were significantly higher in the Chlorella group, compared to the control group. Thus, the authors of this study conclude, "The present results suggest that Chlorella supplementation not only reduces dioxin levels in breast milk, but may also have beneficial effects on nursing infants by increasing IgA levels in breast milk."
