A 2007 study found that 36 volunteers taking 4.5 grams of [tag-tec]spirulina.[/tag-tec] per day, over a six week period, exhibited significant changes in cholesterol and [tag-tec]blood pressure.[/tag-tec]: (1) lowered total cholesterol; (2) increased HDL [tag-tec]cholesterol.[/tag-tec]; (3) lowered [tag-tec]triglycerides.[/tag-tec]; and (4) lowered systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
They say the study is not 100% because there was no control group.
Well – I would certainly try the Spirulina if I had any of those conditions!
What can you lose?
Spirulina is a super-nutrient, so you can only do yourself good. If it cures one of the problems mentioned, what a huge bonus!
Worth trying and seeing if it works for you.
