In the following post you will find everything that you need to know about Spirulina weight loss. Spirulina is available as a powder as well as diet pills. It can be used for natural weight loss, since it is an organic product. Later in this post we will give a review about its positive effects and its possible side effects.

1. What is Spirulina weight loss?

Spirulina is an alga that belongs to the family of the single-cell blue algae. It consists of about 75 percent protein; as a result of its high protein it has very few calories (only 3.9 calories). Furthermore contains it more vitamins, minerals and amino acids than any other food including chicken breast and steak. Supposedly it is better and easier absorbed by the human body than any other protein source available in nature! Also it is one of the best beta carotene sources besides carrots. Spirulina weight loss is usually available in form of different weight loss supplements. However consuming to much of it can turn those supplements to laxatives for weight loss so beware!

Furthermore Spirulina contains a low amount of fat, but the fat it contains consists of essential fatty acids, which every human needs to survive.  Spirulina is a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids as well as GLA, the short form for gamma linolenic acid. (Side note: these essential fatty acids can also be found in many types of fish and nuts)

2. Facts and function

As stated above Spirulina is most often available as a supplement used for weight loss, because of its very low fat and super high nutritional facts, that have been proven by science. To keep it intact it shouldn´t be heated!
It can either be purchased as pills or as a powder. The powder can be mixed with different drinks or it can be applied to / sprinkled over different foods. Since it is a natural product for a natural weight loss there is no chance of an “overdose”. A normal serving consists of a heaping tablespoon with a maximum of 3 tablespoons a day.

3. Benefits

According to a research published in 2009 from a German university Spirulina weight loss supplements may be a treatment for allergic rhinitis (nasal allergies). It helped with symptoms like sneezing, congestion and itching. Honey showed similar results.

A study from 2008 shows that Spirulina weight loss supplements lower blood pressure as well as blood cholesterol levels.

Furthermore it is supposed to offer protection from certain types of cancer, especially oral forms of cancer. This was shown in a study, too.

And now the interesting part for us, are Spirulina weight loss supplements really effective? Is even a drastic weight loss possible? Are they even the fastest weight loss method?

Spirulina weight loss supplements have shown to reduce appetite in several studies. They are in fact an effective way to control someone’s appetite, making them a viable option for every person that wants to lose weight. You can find a more in-depth analysis of their benefits for weight loss in the review section of this post!

4. Side effects

A small group of people from the studies introduced above have shown the following side effects from Spirulina consume: Headache, muscle pain, sweating and insomnia.
As with every supplement it is advisable to consult a doctor or your health care provider before using it especially before consume with other prescription medicine, supplements or even drugs.

5. Spirulina weight loss supplements reviews

While taking Spirulina on a daily basis I suffered less from hunger while being on a strict diet, which was build of several weight loss meal plans. My diet at that time was mostly low carbohydrate. I didn´t suffer from any side effects whatsoever except for a little sweating, but the sweating might had other reasons at that time period.

My wife also liked it. She felt a decrease in hunger, too. There were no side effects. However she mentioned that it tasted disgusting at first, but she got used to it very quickly.

The price for Spirulina weight loss supplements varies drastically! In some Internet shops it is super expensive so take a good look around the web if you want to purchase it.

The weight loss in that time period wasn´t an immediate result of Spirulina it was due to our diet. It just helped us to stay on track. But it was really helpful through, because we both had a lot of work stress at that time. This combined with a strict low carbohydrate diet can be a real tough mental challenge.
All in all I would defiantly recommend it if you are on a strict diet and lacking will power. But it isn´t a must-have for a diet, it just falls in the category of useful supplements.

Please keep in mind that supplements are no replacement for a rich and healthy diet. Also there are no wonder pills that will make you slim over night or at least we haven´t found them yet. At the end it all comes down to your willpower and motivation to achieve your goals. It may be a tough path till you a achieve your goals, but be assured the tougher the road to success is the prouder you will be at the end.
