5. Spirulina has potential for good

study posted through the National Institute of Health: 2g/day

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12639401

"Spirulina -- like any blue-green algae -- can be contaminated with toxic substances called microcystins. It can also absorb heavy metals from the water where it is grown... it is important to buy spirulina from a trusted brand"

I have known people who say nothing but good... I have not taken it long enough at any one time to have relevant personal information, although I have had much experience with people in my life having type 2 diabetes... much relief by eating as close as possible to natural (low glycemic) foods to help avoid excessive insulin secretion (and exercise!)

good luck!
