Wondering if spirulina is considered good, bad, or ugly for blood type A (both secretor and nonnie). I understand it is very high in protein, and am wondering if it is considered a beneficial, neutral, or avoid for both A blood types.

Thanks for asking this.  I was just wondering myself and can't seem to find an answer either.

For some reason I thought it is an avoid, but I don't know where I got this since I don't see spirulina listed in the books I have or on Typebase.  Maybe it is in Live Right?

It's not in my Live Right book, or at least that I've found. Hopefully someone will have some info about this for us.

Say, I just did a search and found this.  It looks like maybe it's not so good.

Thanks Heather, I did a search on spirulina before posting, but didn't see that post.

The post says spirulina should be avoided due to "microcystin toxins." Can someone please explain (non-lingo-y wording, preferably ) what that means?

Also, would appreciate a bit more info than just this one short mention in a post on another topic.

Hmmmm. I read the threads and quite honestly don't find them terribly helpful.

It seems to me that most of the negative posts have to do with concerns about the cleanliness of the sources of spirulina. There are, however, many brands of spirulina available that are very clear about their sources, and which appear to be very clean.

I personally don't buy into the "just because it's pond scum, it needs to be avoided" school of thought. You could take a look at any number of foods and label them negatively in this manner. For example, mushrooms must be avoided just because they are fungus and grow in dirt (egads). Or all fresh spinach should be avoided just because a few specific brands recently were contaminated with e coli. (You get my drift here.)

What I am looking for, and hoping for, is unbiased, specific information about spirulina's benefits, or non-benefits, as it applies to the BTD. Can anyone offer this?

I would take chlorophyll instead, being an A or fresh wheat grass juice.

or use the search button located in the homepage (left margin), and read all threads and posts on the subject......this plan ought to be as individualized as you want to design it.......Dr D-Adamo simply gives you his opinion, and it s up to you to decide what s best for you.

I'm sure this question has already been asked....but what's a good source of chlorophyll?


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Chlorella, wheat grass, barley grass are all good alternatives for blood type A secretors and non-secretors for their protein content, detoxing properties, cleansing properties, micronutrients.

I've been taking chlorlella for a few weeks.  Like Alia said it is a great detoxifier.  I bought some powder but found I didn't enjoy taking it even mixed with juice.  So I bought it in tablet form (the tablets are smaller than a regular vitamin capsule and easier to swallow.  The directions are to take between 10-15 tabs per day.  

I feel it has helped my system as an "internal broom".
