The Detriments of Blue-green Algaes Washington DC

Most researchers concur that the use of inactive vitamin B12 analogues found in multivitamin supplements containing vitamin B12 as well as spirulina, chlorella and blue green algae, can deplete, destroy and interfere with active (true) vitamin B12 by competing for the same cell receptor sites.

The Detriments of Blue-green Algaes

The Detriments of Blue-green Algaes
by David Klein, H.D., Ph.D.

This article is forthcoming in Vibrance issue no. 4

Blue-green algae supplements come in powder, tablet and frozen liquid form. They are praised for their high quantities of nutrients, including protein and all essential trace minerals, some of which are typically scant in even organically-grown fruit and vegetables. Are these products really suitable for ingestion by humans? After examining the facts, the answer is a resounding “no.” Here are four major reasons why:

1. B12 Analogues
Most researchers concur that the use of inactive vitamin B12 analogues (“fake” B12, or “pseudo vitamin B12”) found in multivitamin supplements containing vitamin B12 as well as spirulina, chlorella and blue green algae, can deplete, destroy and interfere with active (true) vitamin B12 by competing for the same cell receptor sites. (Analogues, as defined by Dorland’s Medical Dictionary 27th Edition, are chemical compounds with a structure similar to that of another but differing from it in respect to a certain component; it may have a similar or opposite metabolic action). In our quest for truth, it is important to differentiate between what is similar and what is authentic.

2. Phycocyanin
