Dear CS: Topical Chlorella, inhibiting VGF = Bad?

Post  johndoe1225 on Tue Aug 22, 2017 4:40 am

Hey CS and all!

I have a question mainly for CS: I'm using chlorella powder (actually granules, but I smash them with a spoon until it's a powder), mix in a few teaspoons of distilled water and mix it until it forms either a paste or a really light watery solution, then I apply it to my scalp. Chlorella is supposed to be really good for your facial skin, even improving collagen levels, but one thing they mentioned concerns me; it said something like chlorella inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor, inhibiting the formation of new blood vessels, or something like that. Chlorella contains chlorella growth factor which is supposedly one of the reasons it's so good.

So does this mean that chlorella (topically, not orally, I know orally it's great) would actually be BAD for hair?

Thanks Very Happy

Generally when "X" botanical or food inhibits VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor), it is indicative of an anti-neoplastic quality (Anti-cancer).

All this really means is that tumor growth will be inhibited. There are a number of botanicals that inhibit VEGF, however than no adverse to the vascular system at all (usually just the opposite).
