Effects of spirulina on weight loss and blood lipids: a review
"The currently literature supports the benefits of spirulina for reducing body fat, waist circumference, body mass index and appetite
and shows that spirulina has significant benefits for improving blood lipids."
The antioxidant, immunomodulatory, and anti-inflammatory activities of Spirulina: an overview
"Clinical trials show that Spirulina prevents skeletal muscle damage under conditions of exercise-induced oxidative stress and can stimulate the production
of antibodies and up- or downregulate the expression of cytokine-encoding genes to induce immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory responses."
Hypolipidemic, antioxidant, and antiinflammatory activities of microalgae Spirulina
"Recently, great attention and extensive studies have been devoted to evaluate its therapeutic benefits on an array of diseased conditions including
hypercholesterolemia, hyperglycerolemia, cardiovascular diseases, inflammatory diseases, cancer, and viral infections. The cardiovascular benefits of Spirulina
are primarily resulted from its hypolipidemic, antioxidant, and antiinflammatory activities. Data from preclinical studies with various animal models consistently
demonstrate the hypolipidemic activity of Spirulina."
