Would you care to provide any study that substantiate your facts, mostly those that are claiming to improve health?

Hi, I ordered 250 g of spirulina (625 tablets) online and the package arrived today. I read that 10g is the recommended daily dose. So I have to take 25 tablets a day?! Isn't that a little too much?
Spirulina is received much attention, your general health good one of the latest health care products. Spirulina major benefit is that it supports a healthy immune system, it can promote a healthy inflammatory response, oxidative stress protection. Major projects to ensure that you can maintain a healthy way of life, a person's brain and heart.
If you really want to found out what current scientific research indicates about Spirulina, or anything else, use scientific resources such as sciencedirect.com or pubmed.com.
It's not wise to just trust what random people say on a discussion board.
Do your own research.
Yes, a few people have asked for the scientific evidence for this product and I have not seen anyone respond. I have not researched this product extensively, but from what I can tell it is simply a multivitamin with some other bells and whistles thrown in and I have not seen any definitive scientific proof that vitamins will do all of the wonderful things supplement companies would have you believe. As for the other products, I have not researched them much either but it is up to the ones making the claim (the company making the product) to produce the necessary scientific evidence to prove that their product can actually do all of the things it claims. I can not find that evidence anywhere. Don't take the company's word for it.

I didn't know anything about Spirulina 8 weeks ago and when I was doing some research into finding a supplement to give me more energy (now I am a vegetarian and I most certainly eat my greens) I came across articles pertaining to all the wonderful benefits of Spirulina. So I started taking it and was blown away by how much energy it gave me to get through my days without having to have "power" naps and it does suppress my sugar cravings exponentially and I also eat less. Now that is a bonus in my 50's menopausal years.
The scientific studies can say all they want but for me personally I have noticed many benefits and I really enjoy taking it daily. My mother who is in her 70's has noticed that her Bronchitis has cleared in her lungs and she is no longer coughing all the time. She never expected that to happen, nor did I.
So now I am blogging about it because to me it all comes down to the human individual who has personally felt the benefits, who has tried other supplements that never worked and who does not need scientific studies to tell her she has got it wrong.
Just my humble opinion
Hi - What about the B12 analogs? I'm trying to find answers because, as an athlete, I'm interested in eating a lot of spirulina as a protein source (and I make a great spirulina "ice cream" with thai coconut and chia seeds and a few other things - so I like to have this as a post-workout meal) I'm concerned about blocking B vitamin receptors and can't seem to find the answers - How many ounces a day of spirulina can I eat safely? I tend toward low B12...
Thanks in advance for replies!
