30/10/2017 | Ecolive Spirulina
Spirulina shows promise as a way to manage the symptoms of diabetes. But more research is needed before doctors can recommend it.
A 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.
· lower blood sugar
