Side effects from Chlorella are relatively mild for the general population, and include various stomach ailments such as flatulence, nausea, diarrhea, and discolored stools. Some individuals can have a serious allergic reaction, resulting in asthma and other breathing problems. People with a compromised immune system should avoid taking Chlorella, as it can exacerbate their condition.

In very rare cases chlorella can cause nausea and vomiting, but that would be because of an allergic reaction. There is come evidence to suggest it can cause a rise in uric acid in the blood which in turn is a factor in causing gout.
