Chlorella and Spirulina are two of the superfoods around which are believed to be the most complete food source, the 'perfect food' for humans and even animals.
Spirulina and weight loss go hand in hand. Spirulina has been used for a long time to improve overall heath and is now being used for weight loss. Protein is very important in a weight loss program because it helps boost metabolism, builds immune system, assists in antioxidant activity as well as improves insulin function. Spirulina contains complex sugars that provide energy and burn slowly, it is approximately 70% absorbable protein therefore it keeps the body healthy while dieting.
Increased body temperature, one common side effect of Spirulina, should not be mistaken for fever as it results from extra protein metabolism by the body. Digestive changes occur as a normal side effect of Spirulina when it is first introduced in the diet; nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, flatulence or abdominal cramps may occur due to the diet changes. Increased intake of water usually takes care of the symptoms. If the side effects persist and you experience stomach ache or discomfort, discontinue usage and do check with your doctor.
