FAQ

What is the ideal dose of Spirulina which should be taken daily?

We advise a daily dose of 6 to 10 tablets. However, some people might already benefit from 3 to 6 tablets per day, while others will need 10 tablets or more. Generally speaking, when someone is very physically active or is working under great pressure, his or her body will need more nutrients, so the dose of Spirulina should be increased. Other examples when it is recommended to increase the dose is during or after illness or before or after an operation. We know users who, for example, practice a lot of sports, and take about 20 tablets. You can gradually increase the dose, which promotes and speeds up recovery.

NB: It is not possible to take an overdose.

Can Marcus Rohrer Spirulina also be used by children?

Yes. Spirulina is a good source of nutrients for the development of a healthy child. Children often refuse to eat vegetables. Spirulina will provide their bodies with the right vitamins and minerals which they are lacking at that moment. Marcus Rohrer Spirulina® can be given from birth.

Is it necessary for me to take other supplements, in addition to Spirulina?

Spirulina contains an enormous quantity of vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and enzymes. However, Spirulina does not contain vitamin C or D. These vitamins are not naturally contained in Spirulina algae. Nevertheless it is not necessary to take an additional supplement. Marcus Rohrer Spirulina® contains enough other substances, which increase your immunity just as vitamin C does (for example, vitamins A and E). During times when you experience a decrease in immunity or have less energy, the daily dose of Marcus Rohrer Spirulina® can be increased (temporarily) without any problems.

There is no harm in taking other vitamins in addition to Spirulina, but this is actually not necessary. Vitamin C can be an exception for those who smoke. Intake of extra vitamin C is very much advised in this case. For an increase in immunity, it is not necessary to take any other supplement in addition to Marcus Rohrer Spirulina®.

Are there any side effects when taking Marcus Rohrer Spirulina®?

No. Spirulina is not medication, but a nutrient. Just as you do not experience any side effects from eating fresh fruit and vegetables, you will not experience any side effects when using Spirulina. At first, some people can experience a rash, mild nausea, stomach pains or headaches from Spirulina. This is common in people whose metabolism is not working properly and in people who are taking, or have taken, many medicines. However, these reactions are a positive sign and are linked to the powerful cleansing power of Spirulina (the soaking off of toxic and waste products in the body). If this is the case, you can stop taking the tablets for a few days, or temporarily lower the dose, which causes the cleansing process to progress more gradually. Afterwards, the dose can be slowly increased again. Normally, these reactions will disappear by themselves after a few days.

Is it safe to take Marcus Rohrer Spirulina® during pregnancy?

Yes. As Spirulina has a high nutritional value, it is nutritional for both the mother and her unborn child. In addition, it provides the mother with extra proteins, such as iron, without the extra fat and carbohydrates. You do not have to worry about a vitamin A overdose, as Marcus Rohrer Spirulina® contains the provitamin A beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is transformed by the body into vitamin A, as soon as the body recognizes there is any insufficiency. If the body has sufficient vitamin A, the beta-carotene is simply excreted. This is how it is different from vitamin A, of which a surplus can be stored in the liver which can cause an overdose.
