Spirulina and diabetes management

Written by Anonymous

Question : I HEARD that spirulina is good for health. I am a diabetic. Can I take spirulina? Other than this, what else can I take?

Answer : SPIRULINA, with its high concentration of functional nutrients, is emerging as an important therapeutic food. It is an excellent source of complete protein, beta-carotene, B vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll and enzymes, which occur in their natural form for optimum assimilation.

It also contains essential fatty acid, gamma linolenic acid (GLA) found in mother's milk, and evening primrose oil. It helps to strengthenrepparttar immune system; support cardiovascular function; improve gastrointestinal and digestive health; enhance natural detoxification and reduce cancer risks with antioxidant protection. Due to these beneficial effects, spirulina is a good supplement for diabetics.

There is evidence showing that insufficient insulin and excess sugar inrepparttar 147523 blood plasma can impairrepparttar 147524 conversion ofrepparttar 147525 essential fatty acid called Linoleic acid (LA) to GLA. Thus, diabetics require higher amounts of essential fatty acids than non-diabetics. Clinical studies conducted byrepparttar 147526 two scientists D. Horrobin and G. Jamal showed that GLA is able to prevent or to reverse diabetic neuropathy. You may take Evening Primrose Oil 500mg, two capsules three times daily, forrepparttar 147527 first 12 weeks after whichrepparttar 147528 dosage can be reduced to two capsules daily for maintenance.

TOXIC chemicals that poisoned your grandparents, or even great-grand- parents, may also affect your health, according to American researchers. A study done on rats showedrepparttar effects of certain toxic chemicals that had been passed on through four generations of males.

The finding suggests that toxins may play a role in inherited diseases now blamed on genetic mutations. "It's a new way to think about disease," said Michael Skinner, direc- tor ofrepparttar 147522 Centre for Reproductive Biology at Washington State University in Pullman.
