Effects of spirulina
I gained 10kg from stress and my belly look like a barrel because I left it as it. I thought constipation will be relieved by taking this product, so I took 60 tablets with plenty of water for every day. There are a few times of watery bowel movements and I thought effect of this product is like this.
However, when I ate Japanese isinglass for snack in the evening and evacuated unbelievably black stool on the next day, I was impressed once again that I recognized my condition was fecal impaction. Of course, my belly becomes flat.
How about atopy? The itchiness decreased dramatically and I felt the importance of health of intestines again.
I lost weight 2kg. Sit-ups before going to bed may be effective for this.
If you don’t feel effect of this product, please try to eat Japanese isinglass. Remember that you might not able to leave the toilet if you eat too much at once, so try to eat little by little.
Although it will be sounds like a lie if I continue writing good comments about this product…but atopic dermatitis of my son is certainly getting much better. Even my three-year-old son competes with his brother and takes 5 tablets at once.
There isn’t any problem even I let them take 15 tablets a day. Moreover, he doesn’t need steroid anymore and his skin getting so much better.
Using both Alum bath and spirulina is good for excreting toxin and curing atopic dermatitis.
Although this product tastes bitter, my son enjoyed the change of his tongue’s color after taking spirulina and laugh happily by looking himself in front of mirror every day.
My family will continue taking spirulina.
What is spirulina?

People who live in these areas used spirulina as foodstuff. Although they didn’t have any knowledge about modern nutrition, but they know spirulina is an excellent nutrition food based on their experience. It was in 1945, spirulina which only known by native people who lived around its growth area, started to be a known foodstuff in modern society, because Dr.Clement from institut francais du petrolent, has introduced spirulina at Microbial conference.

These are the great points of spirulina
1. Contains 18 types of amino acids.
Protein (amino acid) is an important nutrient which is a kind of raw material used to build cells, enzymes, hormones of our body. Spirulina contains about 70% of high-quality protein, that is 18 types of amino acid including essential amino acids and nonessential amino acids.
2. Rich in pigment such as chlorophyll and carotenoid.
Spirulina contains abundant natural pigments such as green chlorophyll, blue phycocyanin, orange or yellow carotenoid.
Chlorophyll is a notable ingredient that is useful not only for supporting body circulation, but also care for tired body and hangover.
Spirulina contains beta-carotene and zeaxanthin as carotenoids and these natural pigments play a very important role in reviewing an unhealthy dietary habit.
Plenty of beta-carotene
The standard amount of carotene is 5 to 15mg per person per day, that means taking 200g of green-yellow vegetables and 100g of light-colored vegetables in total of 300g! Only the required amount of beta-carotene is converted into vitamin A in the body.
Lacking in vitamin A will make your body prone to health problems. Let’s use spirulina which contains plenty of beta-carotene that gradually convert to vitamin A in the body only during daytime, to revise fragile dietary life.
3. Vitamin B12 tends to be deficient
Although it seems that vitamin is contained in vegetables, vitamin B12 is rarely contained in vegetables but abundant in animal-derived food.
Spirulina is algae nevertheless it contains more vitamin B12 than liver and oyster.
4. Linoleic acid which control extra fat
Excessive fat on the body, which is even took up on TV in recent years. Spirulina is rich in linoleic acid and gamma linolenic acid, which cleanse the annoyances that can cause poor circulation and bad health. In particular, these two components cannot be made by the body, so they must be supplemented on a regular basis.
5. Alkaline food
Spirulina is an alkaline food.
In order to keep healthy every day, it is necessary to take alkaline foods and acidic foods in a well-balanced manner, but the dietary habits of modern people who live in hectic lifestyle, tend to be biased toward acidic foods.
