Lowering cholesterol-Ecolive Spirulina

Taking spirulina extract may help to lower cholesterol levels. Cholesterol is an unhealthful fat in a person's blood that medical experts link to heart disease.

2016 systematic review and meta-analysissuggests that taking spirulina supplements may have a positive impact on blood lipids, which are fats in the blood. In the study, spirulina was found to significantly reduce total cholesterol and lower LDL — "bad" — cholesterol while increasing HDL — "good" — cholesterol.

2013 study also supports this health claim. Researchers found that taking 1 g of spirulina every day reduced participant's total cholesterol after 3 months.
