Excerpts from The How To Herb Book

Spirulina Powder

Micro-algae, which is highly nutritious and an excellent source of protein, chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals and amino acids. It has 26 times the calcium of milk, contains phosphorus, B12, RNA and DNA, and easily digested. It is a safe food with no side effects. It would be good for survival purposes as it is easy to store. Has sometimes been called Manna of the future. Aids weight loss and physical imbalances.

Excerpt from Nutritional Herbology

Today, spirulina powder is consumed as a health food and nutritional supplement. It is a highly concentrated source of protein, vitamins and minerals but its price is commensurately high. It contains high quantities of bioavailable iron and all minerals generally. The drawback of Spirulina Powder supplements is that you have to consume 10 or more grams daily to get a reasonable amount of nutrients. Ten grams is only two teaspoonfuls, which makes Spirulina Powder a very concentrated food source.

Excerpts from Herbs for Hepatitis C and the Liver

Spirulina Powder is an exceptionally potent nutrient substance that has shown strong activity in many areas. It is the source of one of the most easily digestible forms of protein; it is 85 percent protein, compared with 20 percent in beef. It contains all the essential amino acids and most of the nonessential ones. In addition, it is extremely high in vitamins and minerals.

Spirulina Powder has been found to be hepatoprotective and antihepatotoxic in several vivo studies, protecting the liver against CCl4 induced hepatoxicity.

Preparation and Dosage: 1-2 tsp. (5-10ml) powdered Spirulina per day, more for chronic or acute disease. Suggested minimum dosage for hepatitis is 4 tsp (20ml) per day. Consume as much as desire; it may be used as the primary protein source in the diet.

Contraindications and Side Effects: None noted.

When I was growing up, my mom would often bring to my attention a few ladies that she knew who had bodies damaged by polio or severely handicapping accidents. These women were exceptional because they did not succumb to their physical handicaps. Instead, they were continually looking for diet, health, and exercise to help them be as strong as possible.

Being a "Super Mom" really starts in your spirit, and your attitude. "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he" (Proverbs 23:7). These super moms found their own secrets to conquering Motherhood. I would like to tell you about something that has proven very beneficial to me. It's called Spirulina.

Spirulina is a natural food source that has 58 times the iron of raw spinach and 28 times that of raw beef liver. This food was a significant part of the Aztec and Mayan diets. It contains more beta-carotene than any other whole food, and is very high in chlorophyll. It is 65% proteins and amino acids. This amazing food is the richest source of natural antioxidants of any whole food, containing every natural known antioxidant. NASA plans to grow this food on the space station, as it is one of the most efficient, oxygen generating foods in existence. It contains all the B vitamins, and is an extraordinary "transport" of other vitamins, allowing your body to actually benefit from all the other foods and vitamins you take.

It is a blue-green algae that produces all its nutrients by harvesting sunlight. Since Spirulina has become so popular the world over, it is now cultivated in carefully controlled organic ponds, eliminating any possible toxicity. Spirulina.com is a great website with simple yet complete information on each step of the process of growing, harvesting, drying, and preserving the algae. It would be a good homeschool project just going through the site.

How many capsules can I take a day? I have 00 capsules but I am not sure how many could I take.

    Re: Capsules
    by Bulk Herb Store on Oct 22, 2013

    If you visit the gelatin capsule page, it gives you an idea of how much powder fits into the 00 capsules. We have dosage suggestions listed above, just above the article. For children, you can give half the adult dosage. And if you feel like you need more or less, you may adjust according to your needs.

I have had a problem with my liver for 30+ years. I wanted the problem fixed before I got any older so I went to a liver specialist. She told me, after the biopsy, that I had the healthiest liver she has seen. I have been taking spirulina for about a year.

Spirulina and breastmilk and infants
by Anya Aliza Rose on May 22, 2013

I wanted to add the comment here that not only is Spirulina safe for moms who are breastfeeding and their babies, but this food can be given directly to infants mixed in their foods in smaller doses. It's highly nutritious, as we all know, and it's excellent for brain development.

Spirulina tablets?
by Kristin Joy on Apr 8, 2013

    Re: Spirulina tablets?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 30, 2013

cooking with Spirulina
by Jamie T. on Jan 31, 2013

I have been using Spirulina for many years, and wanted to note you can bake with it, with no worries of degredation, and it keeps shelf stable for 7 years without degredation also.

I love it & recommend it highly!
by Debra J. on May 5, 2011

I started using spirulina some months back. A friend told me it would keep me healthy & younger-looking. :) I found a wonderful way to drink it. I mix 2tsp with blueberry, peach or plain Kefir. You can't taste the spirulina, it mixes up quite easily & what better mixer than such a great probiotic!

Spirulina for Sciatica
by Erin on Mar 19, 2009

I am 27 years old and was recently pregnant with my third child. In my second trimester I began getting sciatica. I read the previous review about this helping sciatica and ordered it right away. I took 4 capsules a day. Right away I noticed a difference. I worked late nights and when I took the spirulina, my sciatica went away. If I missed just one day of taking them, my sciatica would flare up. Now that I've had my baby I continue to take 4-6 capsules a day and have noticed I have a lot more energy. Thanks!

Rough, Bumpy Skin
by J on Jan 17, 2009

I started taking spirulina about one year ago. I have always had (bumps) or
rough skin on the back of my upper arms. I notice when I take the spirulina
they dissappear. this is the first thing in my life, that has ever helped.
and I have tried different diets and creams over the years. the spirulina
also gives me more energy and helps in weight loss. I take about 2 heaping
teaspoons a day. I either mix it in pineapple juice or I like it in a glass
of fresh squeezed lemon with pure maple syrup. either way I think it is
delicious. when I am tight on money and I don't buy it I really miss it, and
my bumps start to return. My mother is now taking it , she has a low immune system and really notices a help with it. Thank you.

Miracle Spirulina !!!
by Nancie on Jul 11, 2008

I just started taking spirulina 2 days ago and I feel so much better. I am a 37 year old female with some health issues. I suffer from sciatic pain in my hips, chronic fatigue and of late my hormones have been extremely out of whack. Since taking spirulina, I no longer have hip pain from the sciatic nerve (spirulina's GLA helps with inflammation), I don't need a nap during the day (chronic fatigue) and am feeling tremendously better (hormonally). Just this past Sunday I was a basket case. Since taking Spirulina, I feel much better, and am very greatful for companies like yours that provide miracle products.
