Blue-Green Algae

Introduction to Blue-Green Algae

Blue-green algae, of which spirulina is a well-known example, is a group of 1,500 species of microscopic aquatic plants. The two most common species used for human consumption are Spirulina maxima and Spirulina platensis. Spirulina is particularly rich in protein and also contains carotenoids, vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids.

Sources of Blue-Green Algae

Blue-green algae grow in some lakes, particularly those rich in salts, in Central and South America, and Africa. They are also grown in outdoor tanks specifically to be harvested for nutritional supplements.

Known Side Effect of Using Blue-Green Algae

Few side effects have been reported from the ingestion of blue-green algae. However, as blue-green algae can accumulate heavy metals from contaminated water, consuming blue-green algae could increase the body’s load of lead, mercury, and cadmium, though noncontaminated blue-green algae have been identified. Another popular species of blue-green algae, Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, has been found to produce toxins. A few reports also describe allergic reactions to blue-green algae. Animal studies have found spirulina to be safe during pregnancy. There is one case report of a man who developed liver damage while taking spirulina. As he was also talking three prescription medications, it is not clear whether the spirulina caused or contributed to the liver injury. At the time of writing, there were no well-known drug interactions with blue-green algae.

Supportive Formulas

Many years have been spent creating the Phytobiophysics formulas that are made from carefully researched combinations of essences from many flowers and plants. We believe that essences enable the body to heal by dealing with the underlying causal emotional trauma so encouraging the body’s own healing process.
