Spirulina has numerous positive effects on exercise performance, cholesterol and glucose blood levels, and seasonal allergies. Spirulina is an all-natural food. Spirulina has a high protein and vitamin content, which makes it an excellent dietary supplement for people on vegetarian or vegan diets. Research suggests that spirulina has antioxidant and inflammation-fighting properties, as well as the ability to help regulate the immune system. By inhibiting NADPH oxidase, spirulina provides potent anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects.
The neurological effects of spirulina need more human evidence. Based on animal evidence, spirulina appears to be a promising anti-oxidant and supplement for metabolic issues. Make sure you only take supplements that work. The nervous system and brain benefits of Spirulina include prevention of memory loss associated with age, fighting oxidative stress symptoms, promoting mental clarity and alertness, relieving depression and anxiety and promoting a balanced mood. Side effects of Spirulina are rare and usually occur when an underlying condition is present.
For both chlorella and spirulina, some of the most common side effects you hear about are diarrhea/constipation, flatulence, green discoloration of the stools, stomach cramping, and nausea. These are even more likely with a higher dosage or when you first include them in your diet. While it’s rare for spirulina to be toxic to humans, a June 2015 study in the Harmful Algae Journal found that spirulina can contain arsenic species and cyanotoxins like cylindrospermopsin and anatoxin-a. This study found that spirulina side effects included fatigue, dermatitis, nausea, dizziness and headache due to the presence of these toxins.
If you hate the groggy feeling that comes after taking Benadryl or other antihistamines, spirulina also can help you deal with your allergies without any major side effects. One recent study found that small doses of spirulina taken on a daily basis helped reduced the frequency of rhinitis amongst people who suffer from this type of allergy. Side effects and potential dangers of spirulina increase when products are contaminated. Contaminated spirulina can cause liver damage, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, weakness, thirst, rapid heartbeat, shock and even death.
Pregnant and breastfeeding women should be especially cautious. Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that’s highly nutrient-dense. This supplement is high in protein, B vitamins, magnesium, and beta-carotene.
It’s also a vegan-friendly source of omega-3 fatty acids and the essential amino acids that make proteins. Spirulina, being a natural source of antioxidants, is ideal for such people to recover from muscle fatigue and improve the overall strength and endurance of the body. 7. Controls Blood Sugar.
