I enjoy the Spirulina, it gives me intense energy and use it to provide my B12 nutrients. The only downside is my shit comes out green,.
I have been using spirulina for over a year now and it is fantastic. I used to have an eating disorder and so i am always conscious of my weight. Spirulina helps to maintain my weight. I also get servere PMS and spirulina has helped my mood swings.
Does it in a way work as a healthy laxative?
Spirulina is very use full to me:
My changes in life:
# sleeping tendency wipe away in day time.# Improves Energy and stamina. # My Eye Sight power increased.# All toxins removed from my body# and lot......Etc
I'm a greens junkie and the powered greens as spirulina mixed with OJ or veggie/fruit smoothies seem to be my main food source over cooked food ,of which I now only buy at cafes etc. No sickness , oodles of energy ,stable moods(not easily stressed), and that clean fresh feeling you get is only some of the benefits. I find that my craving for junk food diminished because the body is nutritionally satisfied . I recomend it to anyone and I consider it one of my main food sources
I am 77 years old and has been taking spirulina for almost 2 years. I find that now I can drive my community bus for 600klms without getting tired. Also I have a very big garden and find that I get the energy to cut all the lawns and edgings without getting tired. I certainly recommend Spirulina to everybody that needs that extra serge of energy. CARLO TASMANIA
my only question is how much have you been taking per day?
I as well love Spirulina. I had (notice that I said: HAD) fibromyalgia, IBS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, IBS. First DUMPED the Gluten from my diet (see the book: Wheat Belly by William Davis) then added then added Magnesium (Jigsaw Brand) and then added Spirulina and Chlorella to my diet. No more disease, feel like I did at 30 yrs old (now I'm 70) and have the bowl movements of a 20 yr old. Am loving all the positive changes in my health. Go to NO alopathic doctors since they don't seem to know anything else but to prescribe a pharma drug which I will not take. Loving all the comments on this herb.
We have been taking SpirulinaOz in Australia, powder form for a few weeks now, in water, my improvements have been no more heat headaches, much more energy, clearer thinking and for my dog who is getting on in years, she used to shake intermittantly, chin and legs - this has ceased! The vets had no idea why this was occuring and I had put it down to old age. Just a little in her drinking water. Extremely impressed and dont mind the taste at all and neither does she.
Spirulina contains at least 10 vitamins, 8 minerals, 7 importantpigments, 10 essential fatty acids, 8 essential aminoacids and 9 non-essentialaminoacids. It is a rich source of enzymes and other potentially importantnutrients and has upto70% complete and highly digestible protein. In alsocontains more β-carotene than any other while food source of Gamma Lindenic acid, is rich in B vitamins, minerals, trace elements, chlorophyll and has other important nutrients such as sulfolipids, phycocyanin, RNA and DNA.
I take this great spirulina and chlorella supplement from Onnit. When you cook vegetables or eat cheap salads, you're often getting little more than just fiber and water. You're missing out on tons of alkaline-forming vitamins and minerals. Usually those green-food liquified supplements taste nasty and are really hard to down. Onnit makes a great supplement that helps the body detoxify and provides all the benefits of eating tons of greens without the hassle.
my friend told me to take at least 3 times a day after meals. aftr bfast, lunch and dinner.
the nausea is normal for some people, it is a detox reaction it will pass. it did the same to me , but it passed i take 24tablets aday plus i put 2heaping tsps. into my 64oz. vita-mix smoothie and bottle it up and take to work every day.
Yes it is marvelous for alleviating fibro....had fibro for 30 yrs (30 yrs of misery I might add) and now thankfully it's gone gone gone. Stimulating your immune system is what you WANT. You really need to read and understand how the immune system works as it will help you understand how a healthy and active and stimulated immune system helps repel disease (of any type). Spend some time with Dr. Google and ask about "what is the immune system" "how does the immune system work", etc.
My family, including myself, have always had digestive issues one way or another. Due to this I tend to keep a fairly healthy diet including fresh fruit, veggies, grains, etc... Still I needed something to help things along and this supplement is working well for me. I have been taking 2 pills of Fiber Cleanse when I wake up and 2 pills about 8 hours later in the afternoon (this routine has gone on for about 3 weeks now). My bowel functions have regulated and become easier. I do not feel any nausea upon taking these pills on an empty stomach and the pills do not have a strong taste or after-taste.
I have also felt a slight change in energy level. I am usually a bit fatigued and sore due to anemia, but lately I have been feeling less fatigue and a bit more energy. So far there is nothing I do not like about this product and I intend on keeping up with my daily routine.
Spirulina is a very healthful and powerful source for extra energy... this is an amazing and helpful content you did share beside us...great!
spirulina will it helps me to gain weight
I have been using a tablespoon of spirulina powder in a 32 oz smoothy 2 to 3 times a week for the last 13 months. I went for eye checkup 36 days after starting and to my surprise, the doctor told me that my vision improved and needed less powerful prescription. Can't wait to go next week for yearly checkup !
I recently started to use Spirulina powder. I bought the NowFoods powder. I did an internet research on the product and I am becoming skeptical. I am afraid that Spirulina does not actually benefit me as much as it claims. Does anyone feel the same way? Did anyone find out something negative about it?? Please share! I would very much appreciate it!
I have just started taking this stuff and will report back with my experience. Initially I feel a bit of anxiety as I have taken probably in the neighborhood of 10x the normal dose recommended on the bottle in a means to catch up to all you healthy folks. I am worried I may turn green as this stuff makes anything green it touches.
thk u for this article, valuable information.
whether it can be consumed by aids children
I have had Heart Burn for 40 years and thanks to Spirulina i don't get it any more. I am a new person. After endless drugs trying to stop HB a friend introduced Spirulina. Best thing ever.
Interestingly despite your thorough breakdown of it's positive nutritional factors you haven't mentioned it's high content of the mineral potassium, which it is actually a great source of.
