INDEPENDENT HEAVY METAL AND RADIATION TESTING

 

“Spirulina can serve as a potent “super food.” Just remember to do your research and arm yourself with knowledge. It is the best way to take control of your health! To safeguard you and your family, I recommend that you make sure your source is organic and has independent third party lab verification that the Spirulina is both toxin – and radiation-free”
DR. MERCOLA 

“Blue-green algae, (Spirulina) also known as Cyanobacteria, are primitive autotrophic prokaryotes. They are a source of food in some parts of the world and patients take the supplemental form to prevent and treat cancer and viral infections, and for weight loss. Spirulina contamination can cause hepatotoxicity, renal failure, and neurotoxicity. Products should be certified free from contamination”
MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING – INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE CENTER 

“Blue-green algae are used as a source of dietary protein, B-vitamins, and iron. They are also used for weight loss, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), hay fever, diabetes, stress, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and other women’s health issues. Some people use blue-green algae for treating precancerous growths inside the mouth, boosting the immune system, improving memory, increasing energy and metabolism, lowering cholesterol, preventing heart disease, healing wounds, and improving digestion and bowel health. Some blue-green algae products are grown under controlled conditions. Others are grown in a natural setting, where they are more likely to be contaminated by bacteria, liver poisons (microcystins) produced by certain bacteria, and heavy metals. Choose only products that have been tested and found free of these contaminants”
MEDLINEPLUS (A SERVICE OF THE U.S. NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE)

“There is no question that Spirulina is a nutritious food, Spirulina might have other specific therapeutic uses beyond general nutritional support.
There are concerns that Spirulina might concentrate radioactive ions found in its environment. Probably of most concern is Spirulina’s ability to absorb and concentrate heavy metals such as lead and mercury if they are present in its environment”.
NEW YORK UNIVERSITY – LANGONE MEDICAL CENTER

“Spirulina appears safe, even at high doses. However, it can be contaminated with other substances that can be toxic. It is important to buy a reputable brand of Spirulina”.
