Question - I take spirulina from the upper part of Klamath lake. It's supposed
to be the finest quality Blue-Green algae in the world. I feel noticeable better
when I take it. Are you telling me that product isn't worth while?
It's a great source of anti-oxidants, beta carotene, Chlorophyll, a small
amount of Vitamin E. Those are all the positive things about it. But when you
look at the research that the military did in the 30's and 40's, trying to use
Blue-Green algae as a food supplement for the troops in their breads and biscuits,
they realized that when you put people through great physical and/or emotional
stresses, you needed the best nutrition possible. And they wanted to get as
much as possible into compact GI rations. So they tried it. But concluded that
to get the minimum daily amount, you'd need to take two pounds per day of pure
Blue-Green algae. That would give you everything you needed.
They tested and tested, but they could not get anyone above 50 grams a day
without getting major digestive upsets: Gas, stomach cramping, bowel pain, diarrhea.
So they dropped the project, and concluded that as a sole supplement it doesn't
work. Many articles were written in the 30's and 40's on that subject. If you
are getting benefit from it take it, but please don't expect to get total supplementation
from it .
