4. Reduced Cancer Risk
You have a reduced risk of cancer when you add spirulina to your diet. Testing conducted at the University of Maryland Medical Center showed the spirulina actually increased the production of antibodies as well as infection-fighting proteins and cells that help to protect against cancer. This is also true of other illnesses. What this means is that spirulina may actually have the potential to prevent a number of diseases.
But when it comes to cancer, there have been some pretty significant research including another study from the Czech Republic that showed that compounds within spirulina were very similar to a potent antioxidant that was tested on human pancreatic cells which had a significant impact on treatment of cancer. If you have cancer, or you want to protect yourself from ever getting cancer, then you definitely should add spirulina to your diet. Although the research is not yet conclusive, it is extremely encouraging.
