  • Spirulina shows far ranging cardiovascular benefits including improvement of blood lipid profiles, prevention of atherosclerosis, and control of hypertension
  • Helps manage physical and mental fatigue due to its nutrient dense composition.  
  • Potential hypolipidemic, hypoglycemic, and antihypertensive properties that helps in the management of the metabolic syndrome


Mechanism of Action

  • Spirulina has the ability to modulate immune functions and exhibits anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting the release of histamine by mast cells.
  • Based on a study on rats, it is proposed that decreases in intestinal cholesterol and bile acid absorption following administration of Spirulina may represent a mechanism for its hypocholesterolemic action.
