But, many who have never tried this remarkable nutrient source may wonder whether or not there are any spirulina side effects to worry about. Is spirulina safe for consumption? Is there anybody who should not be taking this supplement?
Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica® is an all-natural and highly absorbable source of protein, carotenoids, phytonutrients, B-Vitamins, GLA, and essential amino acids. Because it is derived from a naturally occurring algae that is cultivated in a completely BioSecure Zone free of pesticides, herbicides, and GMOs, it does not produce any potentially dangerous side effects.
The Side Effects of Spirulina
It is important to note that Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica® from Nutrex Hawaii is an extremely pure form of spirulina, and that not all manufacturers of spirulina supplements follow our stringent protocols. Poor quality spirulina often has ingredients and chemical fillers included that may reduce the quality of the product, and exacerbate certain side effects.
While high quality spirulina is free of adverse side effects, it does contain iodine, so people who are allergic or sensitive to iodine should avoid taking the supplement. For this same reason, people with hyperparathyroidism should also avoid the supplement.
Is Spirulina Safe for Everyone?
Those who are highly allergic or extremely sensitive to seafood or seaweed may also want to avoid taking spirulina, and people who are currently running a high fever should wait for the fever to subside before taking spirulina.
