To analyze the effect of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii powder on blood glucose and immune function, 113 subjects were included with impaired glucose regulation (IGR),randomly divided into control group and observation group, 56 cases in control group and 57 cases in observation group. The control group was given placebo, and the observation group was given Chlamydomonas reinhardtii powder. Compare with the changes of fasting plasma glucose (FPG), 2-h postprandial blood glucose (2hPG) and immune function indexes between the two groups. After 90 days of treatment, Results indicated that the FPG and 2hPG levels in the observation group were lower than those before treatment (P < 0.01),and the 2hPG level was lower than that in the control group (P < 0.01). The scores of overall feeling, psychological feeling,physical feeling and comprehensive evaluation in the observation group significantly increased than those before treatment (P<0.01). Compared with the control group , the changes in the four scores were statistically significant. Chlamydomonas reinhardtii powder can help maintain the healthy level of blood sugar and improve the body's immune level.
