Managing diabetes-Ecolive Spirulina

Managing diabetes-Ecolive Spirulina

Spirulina shows promise as a way to manage the symptoms of diabetes. But more research is needed before doctors can recommend it.

2018 review study found that spirulina supplementation significantly lowered people's fasting blood glucose levels. High fasting blood sugar is a common problem in people with diabetes type 1 and 2. This suggests that spirulina supplements may help people control diabetes.

These results suggest that spirulina shows promise as a food to support type 2 diabetesmanagement.

2017 animal study supports the idea that spirulina may help manage diabetes. In this study, the researchers gave mice with type 1 diabetes spirulina extract orally. As a result, the mice showed:

·         lower blood sugar

·         higher insulin levels

·         improved liver enzyme markers

The researchers note that the antioxidant effect of spirulina may be helpful in treating type 1 diabetes.
