    Lightbulb Supplements to Prepare for Surgery?

    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 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!
