Spirulina can Aid in Treatment of Pancreatic Cancer

New study reports that spirulina could help to treat patients suffering with pancreatic cancer and a number of different ailments.

The study was published in the journal Annals of Hepatology in 2017 found that spirulina contains bioactive compounds that can treat aggressive forms of pancreatic cancer. Researchers examined potential effects of spirulina with high levels of nutrients similar to the cancer-fighting antioxidant bilirubin known as tetrapyrrholic compounds. Compounds such as chlorophyllin and phycocyanabilin were tested on human pancreatic cancer cells and mice suffering from pancreatic cancer. Test subjects were treated with isolated compounds or whole spirulina.

The results of the study showed that all the cells treated with spirulina progressed far better than the untreated control group and showcased substantial inhibition of cancer cell proliferation. Phyocyanabilin was observed to provide the greatest benefit. The researchers wrote in their concluding statements, “In conclusion its tetrapyrrolic components substantially decreased the proliferation of experimental pancreatic cancer.” They also recommended spirulina as a dietary supplement for its cancer-preventing potential.

According to Spirulina Market report published by Coherent Market Insights, spirulina, chlorella and other algae-based superfoods are essentially sponges they grow in the water and absorb whatever is in it. This makes it very important to carefully select a product. Algae products grown in toxic wastelands are likely going to contain the very same toxins and heavy metals found in their environments even if they are grown under organic standards.
