Reduce Effects Of Radiation*
The Healing Benefits Of Spirulina about Radiation Exposure
Radiation exposure can weaken the immune system, making individuals more susceptible to infections and other health issues. Spirulina contains various nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and proteins, that support immune function. By bolstering the immune system, spirulina may indirectly assist the body in recovering from the effects of radiation, Antioxidants help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, which are produced as a result of radiation exposure.
Some animal studies have suggested that spirulina may have radioprotective effects. For instance, research conducted on animals exposed to radiation showed that spirulina supplementation resulted in reduced radiation-induced damage to the liver, kidneys, and bone marrow. These findings indicate a potential protective role of spirulina.
Spirulina Decreases Radiation Dose Load Received From food
Years after the Chernobyl disaster, four million people in Ukraine and Belarus live in dangerously radioactive areas. The water, soil and food over an 11,000 square mile area is contaminated. Over 160,000 children are victims of radiation poisoning, with birth defects, leukemia, cancer, thyroid disease, anemia, loss of vision and appetite and depressed immune system, now called "Chernobyl AIDS." Doctors reported spirulina's health benefits for child victims of Chernobyl radiation. Spirulina reduced urine radioactivity levels by 50% in only 20 days. This result was achieved by giving 5 grams a day to children at the Minsk, Belarus Institute of Radiation Medicine. The Institute program treated 100 children every 20 days. In a 1991 study of 49 kindergarten children aged 3 to 7 years old in Beryozova, spirulina was given to 49 children for 45 days. Doctors found T-cell suppressors and beneficial hormones rose, and in 83% of the children, radioactivity of the urine decreased. Five grams of Spirulina a day given to children caused reduction of Cesium-137 in urine by 50% in 20 days. Spirulina reduced urine radioactivity by 50% in only 20 days in children who were exposed to radiation by the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown.
Spirulina’s Effectiveness In Reducing Radiation
A comprehensive evaluation was done in 162 patients-liquidators of the Chernobyl accident. Of these, 80 percent were diagnosed as having stage I and II dyscirculatory encephalopathy (DE), 20 percent were in stage III. It is shown that DE progression is caused by great strain on and breakdown of auto-regulatory mechanisms of different biological systems (vascular, central nervous and vegetative, hormonal), and of central regulatory mechanisms as well. Under certain conditions there may occur their breakdown, with syncopal states, crises, and even insults developing in its wake. Treatment and rehabilitation of DE liquidators with pyracetam, vinpocetine, cerebrolysine with magne B6, and phytosorbents (spirulina, quercitrol, and vitapectine) lead to reconditioning of central and autoregulatory compensatory-and-adaptive mechanisms, long-lasting remission, provide complication prophylaxis and promote work activity .A Polysaccharide found in Spirulina shows chemo-protective and radio-protective capabilities in hemopoietic system of mice and dogs.  
Protective Effect Against Gamma Radiation
137 and Strontium-90. It is favorable for normalizing the adaptive potential of children's bodies in conditions of long-lived low dose radiation”. Previous research in China in 1989 demonstrated a natural polysaccharide extract of spirulina had a protective effect against gamma radiation in mice.Previous research demonstrated Spirulina extract increased the level of red cells, white cells, and hemoglobins in blood and nucleated cells in mouse bone marrow.    Many studies indicated that long-term effects of radiation are weakened immune system, oxidative stress and cancer. Numerous international studies have shown spirulina stimulates the immune system and has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer activity.
Reduce Allergic Reactions from Radiation Sickness
A Russian patent was awarded in 1994 for the use of spirulina as a medical food to reduce allergic reactions from radiation sickness. The patent was based on a study of 270 children living in highly radioactive areas. They had chronic radiation sickness and elevated levels of Immunoglobulin (IgE), a marker for high allergy sensitivity. Thirty-five were prescribed 20 tablets per day (about 5 grams) for 45 days. Consuming spirulina lowered the levels of IgE in the blood, which in turn, normalized allergic sensitivities in the body. Research continuing through 1999 in Belarus showed immune building, normalization of peroxide lipid oxidation and detoxifying effects of spirulina supplements in children and teenagers. Scientists theorized spirulina may form non-absorbable complexes of radionucleides through analogues such as calcium or potassium and promotes their excretion.
