Spirulina is a dietary supplement produced from cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae and scientifically classified as Arthrospira platensis. This particular species of algae thrives in mineral-rich salt waters and is often found in regions such as Africa and Central America. When you look at the nutritional values per gram, spirulina is one of the most nutritious and rich nutrients on earth.

Fun Fact: The Aztecs also used spirulina to treat various diseases, and legends say that messengers from the kingdom used the algae to fuel their marathon runs.

1. Stabilizes blood sugar levels:

Spirulina can support blood sugar stability in dogs. Balanced blood sugar levels help prevent energy dips and uncontrolled appetite, which can help maintain a healthy weight. This is attributed to the pigment phycocyanin in spirulina. Phycocyanin stimulates the body’s insulin function, which can lead to improved insulin response and more stable blood sugar levels in dogs.

2. Weight control:

Spirulina may play a role in controlling weight in dogs. It is suspected that spirulina may slow the breakdown of starch, which may contribute to improved intestinal activity. This in turn can help regulate the dog’s weight. In addition, spirulina contains a significant amount of amino acids, which can be helpful in maintaining lean body mass during weight loss.

3. Antiviral effect:

Studies suggest that using spirulina in dogs can greatly reduce the risk of viral infections. These beneficial effects are attributed to the immunomodulatory properties of the substance phycocyanin, which supports the immune system very efficiently. In addition, it also has an anti-inflammatory effect.

4. Energy boost:

Spirulina is a natural source of high-quality proteins, vitamins and minerals, such as B vitamins and iron. These nutrients play a crucial role in energy production and can help reduce fatigue by providing extra energy. In addition, the high amount of amino acids and proteins in spirulina contribute to the recovery of muscle tissue after exercise, so that the dog generally recovers faster and experiences less fatigue. It can therefore also improve sports performance, due to the relatively high amount of magnesium it contains.

5. Support for hay fever:

The anti-inflammatory effect of the antioxidants in spirulina can help people and animals with allergies due to pollen, dust and mites. A human study found that symptoms such as nasal congestion, sneezing and itching were significantly reduced in participants, suggesting that spirulina could be a good alternative to allergy medications.
