Sun Chlorella Protects Against Dog Dermal Inflammation

TORRANCE, Calif.Sun Chlorella Corp.s, an international manufacturer of human and animal-grade chlorella green food products, sponsored study, "Anti-inflammatory Effect of Chlorella Pyrenoidosa on Chronic Dermatitis in Beagles," showed significant observed improvement in dogs suffering from this agitated dermal condition.

The four-week, veterinary-supervised study involved subjects suffering from pre-existing dermatitis, symptoms of which include reddening, papules and eczema. After observing and reporting initial dermal legions, half of the subjects were assigned to a control group and the other half received daily oral administration of chlorella pyrenoidosa powder. Observation after four weeks showed little change in the control group's auricle condition. In contrast, the chlorella group exhibited significant statistical reduction in dermatitis agitation, with 60 percent of subjects showing either "marked" or "moderate" improvement. In addition, results from other monitored body sites (including face/head, forearm, abdomen, back and tail) on chlorella subjects showed a combined 85.7 percent rate of "moderate" to "disappeared" legion improvement.

"As we continue to explore chlorella's vast effect on the body beyond its detoxifying and digestive health properties, we are pleased to discover our chlorella brand has exhibited a significant effect on improving skin conditions such as dermatitis, said Yoshi Nishimaki, Sun Chlorella USA president and chief executive officer. We understand this condition can cause great discomfort in dogs and also worry dog owners."
