Yea girl! I read almost that whole thread on LCHF, and I got so excited after reading it...i just have to get it! Is the one on swanson organic? I know it has different brands....let me check it out.
 
Also how much mg are u going to try...i think i will try the 200mg or 300mg....they recommended that amount. Although some p..pl used higher...but i'm gonna start of with the lower dosage.

im so quick!! i went to duane reade or rite-aid, ill correct it when i get up LOL...
 
i got 60 for 6 something(BOGO).. 50mg.. im taking 1 daily so i will try them for 30 days and when its up, if i see improvements, ill order from swansons because they are cheap as can be!!
 
when i burp, u can really taste it!! i read over 40 pages so i need to go back and finish....
 
i read 50mg is good for acne and higher doses are for other things... ill increase to 300 next month god willing
 
i really think biotin is the reason why im breaking out still, even thought im drinking alot of water and taking the b complex.. im taking a break from it
i read that it "could" cause exessive shedding/baldness if not taken with biotin, i also read that ur body only needs 50mg, more for other ailments (i read the whole thread

Yea thats from the reviews i think a few people said that she had some thinning hair, and she thinks it was because of it. But all the others said that they didnt experience it. However there is one in gnc thats called Minus 1, its has 300mg of ala and 300 mcg of biotin, I think I will try that one. If it is too strong. I'll just take one a day...if it still feels like too much...i will take the 50mg.

I will give it a mth as well..if i see no improvement..i will jump off that bandwagon and join the royal jelly, since i read in the body type forum royal jelly also gives u boobies and booty!Smile


Posted By: tru_blu09
Date Posted: Oct 07 2009 at 12:52am
^exactly!!! that chlorella and spirunela is sounding good too.. i wanna try the royal jelly with bee profolis....
 
the minus 1 is supposed to be expensive.. im just gonna lower my boitin intake to 1000mcg and take 50mg of the ALA and hope for the best. its in so many products... the g-soap everyone was raving about, u can take that internally... (im learning so much)


Posted By: GoodKarma4me
Date Posted: Oct 07 2009 at 1:37pm
Yea i know it so much stuff! i was checking out the chlorella thread as well...it sounds really good, i need to research it some more though. i wonder if i could mix it in my green smoothie.
Yea i was reading that royal jelly and propolis are great together.....how do u take that g-soap internallyConfused???


Posted By: shashay
Date Posted: Oct 07 2009 at 2:31pm
G-soap? What is that?
 
I'ver been taking royal jelly for the body benefits but what is it supposed to do for hair?


Posted By: vanity1
Date Posted: Oct 07 2009 at 7:51pm
I used a brand of ALA from Whole Foods...it gave me a rash...my mom thinks it was because of all of the fillers...I ordered a brand from swanson vitamins...my twin uses this brand and hasn't had any reactions.


Posted By: tru_blu09
Date Posted: Oct 08 2009 at 9:11am
oops u dont take the soap internally but they have a pill with the long g name on it for your skin... i saw it
 
im only using 50mg... i dont want a rash or any adverse reactions...
 
i forgot what it does to the hair, i think it adds moisture


Posted By: GoodKarma4me
Date Posted: Oct 08 2009 at 8:30pm
Oh ok..lol...not sure I was willing to take that soap thing to another level...
 
Ok i got my ALA pills, and I also got the Y.S. royal jelly...yeah kinda got excited..lol..But i'm not gonna take them together. I'll try the ALA first and see how that goes.


Posted By: tru_blu09
Date Posted: Oct 08 2009 at 10:25pm
ooooh!!! i bet ur gonna be so tempted to take it while ur taking the ala!!

i have been taking ALa for almost a week now and im seeing improvements, my skin just looks different, like the tone... my face has always glowed and been soft but theres something new about it....

Posted By: GoodKarma4me
Date Posted: Oct 12 2009 at 9:24pm
This is my 4th day of taking it...my first two days, it made me feel queasy, but i swear i was beginning to see some difference in my skin so i kept at it. Now i feel normal, i skin tone looks different too...stilll get 1 or 2 bumps..but its my 4th day...so cant expect it too work that fast. But so far so good though...

Date Posted: Oct 12 2009 at 11:06pm

tru_blu and GoodKarma--Chlorella has been proven to aide in weight loss as it majorly curbs the appetite, and also creates the environment for the body to regulate the metabolism and loose weight. So if you're over weight, it will help you come down to a maintenance level, and if you're at your correct weight, then it will help you maintain that.
 
Chlorella will not cause those who are underweight or the correct weight to lose, as it merely corrects the metabolism. Those with high metabolisms do not need adjustment in this area, so chlorella will go elsewhere where it's needed.

Plus i have been taking chlorella since May and am skinny and have not lost one single kg.

i got one, did the salt treatment, waited for it to come to a head, popped it DeadDead it scabbed and i peeled it off today... it will probably turn into a dark spot but it doesnt matter to me, im glad its gone!!! i have no big active pimples and everything is starting to dry outClapClapClap

Thats it too..i am definitely sold on trying the chlorella.
@ X Kwiz
 
Which brand are u using and how do u use it?? I heard that u cant use too much when u are just starting. Also how much do u take a day? Thanks!


Posted By: tru_blu09
Date Posted: Oct 18 2009 at 2:03pm
3 grams to start the first week off and u can increase to 6 it says on LHCF....
 
u dont have to take a multivitamin with it so thats the only thing 2 take really... its cheaper... the big tub of powder from vitacost is around 44 dollars... but it lasts close to a year... a least a month shy of one... if ur taking 3 grams a day... and its saying half a teaspoon will give 500 servings! lemme post a link:

im on page 31 out of 530 -_- i will purchase after i read the entire thing!

i thought this was a good price

http://www.vitaglo.com/sn1454.html" rel="no follow - http://www.vitaglo.com/sn1454.html

if i buy 2 cases this should last a year. it comes out to 27.50 for 1200  200 mg tablets if you take about 3 a day youll be good for a year.

nvm i see the recommended dosage is way over 3 pills a day. powder is the way to go.

http://www.vitaglo.com/sn1529.html" rel="no follow - http://www.vitaglo.com/sn1529.html

im thinking of getting this. i can get it with free shipping. i dont think it will last a year but maybe 6 months. i never tried this stuff before so i dont want to buy too much of it.


Posted By: GoodKarma4me
Date Posted: Oct 18 2009 at 7:59pm
Dang is it that much pages tru!...lmao...i know it was alot but damn. I think i wanna get it in december too...
 
@ Napp
So u are going to get it in pill form instead? I heard the powder form got better results.


Posted By: Napp
Date Posted: Oct 18 2009 at 8:05pm
no im getting the powder form. i think this is a key post on pg 55

That's why I like that everyone is posting their findings. Now we know to:

1. Take time to increase dosage only when detox effect subsides.
2. What to lookout for when detoxing.
3. Not to take with caffeine (I posted an article earlier that said that). Doesn't mean you can't drink caffeine during the day, just don't wash it down with caffeine, use water or juice or something w/o caffeine to do that.
4. Get to a point where you take enough that stool IS green. Only increase after detoxing symptoms, though, subside and only again after...
5. Find a good quality Chlorella with lots of CGF (Source naturals, Jarrow, and Earthrise/earthwise? (I can't remember how to spell) mentioned as some options)
6. Avoid Chinese chlorella like the plague.
7. Don't put chlorella in the fridge!
8. Get healthy
9. Cleanse toxins.
10.Grow luxuriously long hair!
11. Chlorella is a part of asian culture used throught the orient and is the #1 supplement in Japan and the asian cuture as a whole have great hair that grows fast.
12. Ha ha! I think we found out one of their secrets

Date Posted: Oct 18 2009 at 11:28pm
im on page 71 and get the source naturals... 16 oz for $28... u can google for free shipping codes.... i have checked and re-checked....
 
buying 2 of the SNs is $56... lasts for 302 days and has 531 chlorella growth factor per teaspoon....
 
the jarrow brand is $44 for 34oz... u get only 480 CGF abd it lasts for 200 days...
 
better off buying 2 of the SN because when that jarrow runs out in 200 days, ur gonna have 2 buy another... thats 88 dollars for 400 days of jarrow when u can buy 3 of the SN and save 4 dollars and ur getting 453 days of product & the 531 CGF per teaspoon...
 
when u run out of the 16 oz or SN, u only have to add 16 more dollars to the original price and that makes it the same price as ur jarrow for more product.. (hope i make sense) (to get ur 2nd container)

i HAVE been taking 100mg of ALA... not 50 like i originally thought... i have one 50 mg bottle, those are brown and the ones im taking now are yellow/gold Confused wow!!! i need to learn how to read!!! so i will be finished with those the 2nd week of october!!!

i am DONE with biotin, if i cant get the money back for the ones i bought i will give em away!

i am going to the vitamin shoppe to look for some chlorella.. if i find it for less than 32 but not as great as amazon's price (free auto shipping for 25 every 6 months) then ill give it a go...

i really wanna use everything up before i start it.. im so impatient


Posted By: tru_blu09
Date Posted: Oct 20 2009 at 9:39pm
i am impatient.... i bought the source naturals 200 mg 300 tab chlorella for 10.89 @ whole foods (columbus circle for Napp).. 10 pills is 2g so i started off at 5.. i got these becuase of the high chlorella growth factor


Posted By: GoodKarma4me
Date Posted: Oct 20 2009 at 10:51pm

I knew u couldnt wait till january.!..lol..

Is it the pill or the powder you got?? If its the pills... are u gonna take 10 a day? I dont think I can keep up with the pills i will definitly get the powder from whole foods this weekend. I think I wanna start off on the weekend just in case i have a mishap...if u know what i mean..lol
 
So u gonna take it with the ALA as well??


Posted By: tru_blu09
Date Posted: Oct 20 2009 at 11:59pm

i have the pills... they smell like toes.. cute lil green tabs... 10 is 2g so 5 is 1... im starting off with 5 for 2 weeks then ill increase to 10 for the remaining 23 days.. it is SOOO simple to take them, they are so fun sized... u just pop em in 1 time like tic tacs

after the 23 days ill either order from vitacost or amazon... both are now 33 so far... prices go up and down on there everyday though... whole foods had greens products but nothing specifically "chlorella" type except for a few products which can vary store to store so i hope u find a huge container of powder... remember, Chlorella Growth Factor, the higher the better

i wanna take it with the ALA but then i dont because i wanna see what C does.. but i also wanna use up my ala... hell im taking both :-)


Posted By: X_Kwiz_It
Date Posted: Oct 21 2009 at 4:02am
LOL at they smell like toes LOL..the powder is easier to take tru but go hard on the pills. this has turned into a chlorella thread lol

Posted By: GoodKarma4me
Date Posted: Oct 21 2009 at 7:19pm
LOL.....girl i hope u didnt take that before u went to class...thats why if i do get the funds to buy it this weekend, i will definitely start on the weekend...god knows I hate to go in public places..just grosses me out, plus it kills the enjoyment..LOL....
 
yea i get breakouts..not much though..just 1 or 2 since i started it i think..but my skin looks great...like i dont even wear makeup all the time when i go out..i dont look that bad at all....

i think i might go with the ala. chlorella is too expensive right now. i think i might hop on that green smoothie thing.


Posted By: tru_blu09
Date Posted: Oct 22 2009 at 9:15am
^yes start off with the green smoothies.... then ease onto chlorella... ALA is a great addition

its like the bumps on my forehead get bigger when wet and smaller when its dry and i put my facial cream on... no new ones, just the same ones coming to a head and whatnot LOL...

Karma im rett to take the 5 pills i brought with me.... i hope i dont start with the BGs!! i have class in 45 mins HAHAHA



Posted By: GoodKarma4me
Date Posted: Oct 22 2009 at 6:27pm
Hey Tru do u take the 5 pills at once?? Oh and were u able to last in class without sprinting to the bathroom..lol
 
@ Napp
Yea it is expensive..i am hoping to get some money this weekend to start. I would try the pills form like Tru, but I really hate taking pills....


Posted By: tru_blu09
Date Posted: Oct 22 2009 at 8:25pm
i took all those pills at once.. and i had cheese today so i had 2 rush to the bathroom at target.... it was crazy!!! could have been the cheese or the CHL..
 
they are so little that u cud probably swallow em all at the same time and not feel it, the source naturals brand is cheap on amazon right now.. i think u get 2 packs now and they are very small...

i havent taken the ALA in a few days...
 
i know they are getting smoother.... could be the olive/castor/coconut oil mix i use everyday....
 
my skin is clearing up... i think have 1 active bump on my forehead, the rest is gone.. left with lil dark marks *sigh*
the ones on my cheeks are fading.. YAY

Hey Tru i think honeyb was talking about the ALA. Anyways I think the chlorella is a better deal than the ALA though...kinda scarred with that whole shedding hair thing....

i have finished my chlorella bottle and cant afford another 1 at the moment plus i have been taking it for about 7 months now.ill take a break from it. ill start again once i finish my biotin/b complex/garlic pills.

tru-shoot! soz abt the shedding. you can never know what is it..could be your body reacting to chlorella.

karma--have u started chlorella yet?

i will be purchasing a big container of either the source naturals or jarrow.. i know SN has more CGF but jarrow will last for around 200-250 days ;-\

tips of nails still get chippped and break but they r harder and whiter.... nothing new yet

see some bumps!!!! got a under-the-skin one now :-\ stretch marks itch so bad

So I started green smoothies last week. I add milled flax seed but I want to add vitamins for energy and for skin hair health.

I've read the entire thread, but I'm confused about what chlorella to order (I'm reading that the powder is more cost-efficient), and if I should just swallow it with a chaser or if I can add it to my green smoothie mixture?

Also, detox symptoms? HUH?

So if I start it, I won't be able to boo boo? What about the fact that I use Activia yogurt to make my green smoothies? I also am thinking of trying this pill called Colon Clenz. Am I doing too much?

@ Kurlie

I am also gonna order my chlorella tomorrow. I'm going to purchase the Source Natural brand, however I am not sure what to mix it with too. I was thinking about using it in my green smoothie, or I heard alot of girls talked about using it with apple juice.
No the only way u may get constipated is if you take too much, they said the recommended dose is 3grams when u are now starting i believe and then u can move up to 6grams after that.
However i think using the Colon Clenz may be too much...u may have to use that by itself, and then when u are through cleansing, u should start using the chlorella.

I mix my chlorella with a juice called Berry Blend by Tropicana. It's the only thing I'll drink it with. I can hardly taste it. I also use Source Naturals. About 3 teaspoons, which is 9 grams. The thing is, I've been using it for around 2 weeks but I haven't really noticed any detox symptoms yet... I'm getting impatient.

I paid 35 in total for the 16oz...i couldnt find it cheaper anywhere else. I got it from amazon...where did u get urs?


Posted By: Jello
Date Posted: Nov 12 2009 at 8:16pm
That seems about right, GoodKarma4me. Vitacost has 16oz for 34.
 
 
My BM isn't green. I didn't mean to take 9 grams right away, but I initially thought that 1 teaspoon was 1 gram, so I thought I was taking 3 grams. Embarrassed
