I may not be the best at exercising often, but I am HUGE on taking natural supplements to improve my health. I have been taking Chlorella (green algae) for the past 2 months in preparation for surgery. Its supposedly a super food that improves immune system and over all health. (read http://www.chlorellafactor.com/) Has anyone taken supplements to prepare for surgery? Anyone have any comments on whether or not its safe to take supplements prior to surgery such as green algae? I am curious to see if anyone has had any success. Thanks!

I would ask my surgeon before taking anything that he did not give you

My surgeon told me to stop all supps &vitamins 2weeks prior to surgery. Walking is a highly recommended exercise pre &post op.
