Leading immunology researcher M. Eric Gershwin, MD and a team of scientists from University of California Davis and Cyanotech found excellent results in a recent human clinical trial. Hawaiian Spirulina was administered to 30 subjects over age 50 for twelve weeks. Key blood chemistry markers were measured at 0, 6 and 12 weeks. The study found a steady increase in hemoglobin in both sexes with women benefiting more rapidly from Spirulina supplementation. The study also found improved immune blood markers in the majority of subjects. This study suggests that Spirulina supplementation may be a logical, nutritional approach for people 50 and older who are often subject to weakened immune systems and anemia.
With the world population rapidly aging and record increases in the 50+ age demographic, Spirulina seems to be the single most important supplement for anyone born before 1960. The highly respected AARP Magazine (which is the world’s largest circulation publication) ranked Spirulina “the #1 supplement to add years to your life.” Spirulina’s vast array of additional benefits for cardiovascular, eye & brain health, its anti-viral and anti-carcinogenic properties combined with the immune building and anemia-preventive properties further validated in this research all corroborate AARP Magazine’s position.
