Q. What is the ideal dose of Spirulina which should be taken daily?
A. We advise a daily dose of 4 capsules. However, some people might already benefit from 2 to 3 capsules per day, while others will need 6 tablets or more. Generally speaking, when someone is very physically active or is working under great pressure, his or her body will need more nutrients, so the dose of Spirulina should be increased. Other examples when it is recommended to increase the dose is during or after illness or before or after an operation. It is not possible to take an overdose.
Q. Are there any side effects when taking Spirulina?
A. No. Spirulina is not medication, but a nutrient. Just as you do not experience any side effects from eating fresh fruit and vegetables, you will not experience any side effects when using Spirulina. At first, some people can experience a rash, mild nausea, stomach pains or headaches from Spirulina. This is common in people whose metabolism is not working properly and in people who are taking, or have taken, many medicines. However, these reactions are a positive sign and are linked to the powerful cleansing power of Spirulina (the soaking off to toxic and waste products in the body). If this is the case, you can stop taking the capsules for a few days, or temporarily lower the dose, which causes the cleansing process more gradually. Afterward, the dose can be slowly increased again. Normally, these reactions will disappear by themselves after a few days.
Q. Does Spirulina help with weight loss?
A. Spirulina is not a weight loss product, but it offers an excellent natural support in the struggle against putting on weight. Most weight loss products focus on eating less. But by eating less, you will also get less nutrients. Marcus Rohrer Spirulina makes sure that the body receives enough nutrients. Spirulina can help control and maintain your weight without artificial cures. You will receive natural nutrients in concentrated form without excess calories, which will keep you healthier and make you feel less hungry. Losing weight without feeling tired or listless is much easier to keep up! Take Spirulina half an hour before your meal, so your body will get the necessary nutrients. Because Spirulina is easily digestible, these building materials will be quickly transported to the blood. The brain's hunger center will then receive a message via the blood that all nutrients are present, which makes your feeling of hunger disappear. The advantage is that Spirulina is 100% natural, without any harmful substances. Spirulina is also filled with iron, which is lacking in many low-calorie diets.
Q. Is Spirulina gluten free?
A. Yes. Gluten is a substance found in wheat and therefore also in wheat products (such as bread and cake). Some people, and more and more children, are allergic to gluten. Spirulina, however, does not contain gluten. People who have coeliac disease (a bowel disorder) react very strongly to gluten. Because Spirulina is gluten-free, they can use it without any problems.
Q. Can Spirulina also be used by children?
A. Yes. Spirulina is a good source of nutrients for the development of a healthy child. Children often refuse to eat vegetables. Spirulina will provide their bodies with the right vitamins and minerals which they are lacking at that moment. Spirulina can be given from birth.
Q. Is it safe to take Spirulina during pregnancy?
A. Yes. As Spirulina has a high nutritional value, it is nutritional for both the mother and her unborn child. In addition, It provides the mother with extra proteins, such as iron, without the extra fat and carbohydrates. You do not have to worry about a vitamin A overdose, as Marcus Rohrer Spirulina contains the provitamin A beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is transformed by the body into vitamin A, as soon as the body recognizes there is any insufficiency. If the body has sufficient vitamin A, the beta-carotene is simply excreted. This is how it is different from vitamin A, of which a surplus can be stored in the liver which can cause an overdose.
NB: Although Spirulina was recommended by physicians, as well as by obstetricians, we always recommend discussing the use of Spirulina with your obstetrician/family physician. We are not informed on anyone's medical history. In addition, a pregnancy is something delicate.
Q. Why am I still feeling fatigued after having taken Spirulina for 4 weeks?
A. We advise a daily dose of 4 capsules. However, some people might already benefit from 2 to 3 capsules per day, while others will need 6 capsules or more. Generally speaking, when someone is very physically active or is working under great pressure, his or her body will need more nutrients, so the dose of Spirulina should be increased. Other examples when it is recommended to increase the dose is during or after illness or before or after an operation. You can gradually increase the dose, which promotes and speeds up recovery. You may need to increase the dose a little before you get the desired effect. It is not possible, though, to take an overdose.
