One woman's spirulina is another woman's ...

In Response To: Spirulina (Anne O+ INFP)
Yes, it's true. Spirulina, aka pond scum, is on the avoid list for O's. HOWEVER, remember that everyone is an individual with different body requirements. Because I have a hypo active thyroid, many of the avoid supplements are actually beneficial because of my thyroid condition: zinc, chromium piccolinate, to mention two.
I took spirulina for many years in conjunction with pancreatic enzymes, and was able to digest fruits much better than I can now, without the spirulina.
I am going back on the spirulina tablets with my pancreatic enzymes.
We are all different. What someone else can digest, I cannot. What I can digest (zinc, spirulina, etc.), many others cannot.
You have to experiment. The Avoid List for O's is not set in concrete.
I can't remember why Dr. D'Adamo said that spirulina is an avoid for O's. The thing to do is to search the Master Message Board.
Good luck, and welcome to the ER family.
