Research: Spirulina Treatment Lowers Cholesterol - 2016
Many overweight and obese people suffer unhealthy high cholesterol.
This review and meta-analysis confirmed that Spirulina treatment significantly reduces plasma concentrations of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and elevates those of HDL cholesterol.
Spirulina might be a valuable nutraceutical in dyslipidemic patients.

Research: Spirulina a Powerful Hypolipidaemic Treatment for Lower Cholesterol
Dyslipidemia is the imbalance of lipids such as cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides, and high-density lipoprotein that can result from diet, tobacco exposure, or genetics and can lead to cardiovascular disease with severe complications.
After 3 months of daily spirulina treatment, levels of triglycerides, low density lipoprotein-cholesterol, total cholesterol, non-high density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels, and the ratio of total cholesterol to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol were significantly decreased.

Research: How Spirulina Treatment Promotes Weight Loss: Mechanisms of Action - 2023
Spirulina promotes gastrointestinal peristalsis, eliminating harmful substances from the body and maintaining intestinal health.
It is is abundant in phenylamino acids, which can influence the brain to control appetite, balance cravings, effectively regulate body fat content, and alleviate hunger caused by other weight loss methods.
Spirulina can reduce the infiltration of macrophages into visceral fat, prevent the accumulation of liver fat, decrease oxidative stress, improve insulin sensitivity, and promote satiety.
Research has demonstrated that moderate treatment with spirulina can enhance apolipoprotein A1 levels and reduce apolipoprotein B, aiding in weight loss and lowering Body Mass Index.
Spirulina achieves weight loss by reducing the permeability of macrophages into visceral fat and preventing the accumulation of liver fat and oxidative stress
