Chlorella is available in pills & powder & are available at most health food stores. Chlorella is packed full of essential vitamins so if you currently take other vitamin supplements you can easy replace them all with chlorella.

I can't get "cholera" out of my head!

It is worrisome to me that someone might read that and at first glance think that formula might be better than "tainted" breastmilk, which is most unlikely true. There's no doubt that there are pollutants in our air and water and food supply.

A little googling here and I read hat chlorella is an algae. I just watched a YouTube video where Dr Oz is discussing chlorella's ability to bind with mercury in your body and expel it. So while I'm apprehensive about of aiming it at breastfeeding mothers I can understand why they'd say maybe it could be helpful for all people concerned about this. And I'm sort of freaking ou over my silver fillings now! And my ds's fillings. :-(

I am in no way saying the formula is better than breastmilk.. It most definitely isn't. But after a LC told me about chlorella when my son kept getting sick whenever I did because I EBF on demand, I had to try. It really is awesome.. And it aids in weightloss as well which is just an added benefit..

I realize you were not. :-) My nervousness comes from recent controversies stirred up by a national nutrition group that has said that vegetarians (and others with "deficient" diets) are better off following their homemade formula recipe than breastfeeding.

I'll keep reading about chlorella (and watching YouTube ;-) Thanks for putting it on my radar.

I had the Cholera thoughts too... And yes, I have to agree. That makes breastmilk sound pretty bad.

I understand the intent is to say that chlorella helps remove toxins from breastmilk but I'm sure people could spin that to make breastmilk look bad. Though if the toxins come from the air and water, then cow's milk would have the toxin's too so milk-based formulas aren't a viable option.

Oh exactly, I know it's not meant to say it's bad just a way to make it better. I'm planning on looking into it a bit more actually, but I can see how it could come off as scary.

Question:  HOW does it remove toxins from breastmilk... 

"They" say not to de-tox whilst breastfeeding, as the toxins may get into the breastmilk and into the baby, so where do the toxins go once you take the chlorella?
