Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Spirulina is a type of algae that is bluish green in color. This plant usually lives in tropical and subtropical waters that have a high salt content. Spirulina is considered a superfood because of its excellent nutritional content, including protein, vitamins B1, B2, B3, copper, iron, and so on. Some of the clinically proven benefits of spirulina are to:
It is a high source of antioxidants, so it can help prevent the growth of cancer cells, prevent constriction of blood vessels. Reduce the symptoms of rhinitis. Raise good cholesterol levels in the blood and lower bad cholesterol. Increase endurance. Maintain muscle strength. Meanwhile, white turmeric is also believed to have various benefits, ranging from anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-pain, anti-ulcer, anti-toxin, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, antioxidant, antidiabetic, and so on.
Both spirulina and white turmeric, both have good properties as antioxidants. Therefore, related to your question regarding the benefits of these two herbal products in treating tumors, this is possible because both products have good antioxidant properties in suppressing the growth of tumor cells.
However, is it safe to consume spirulina and white turmeric that has been processed in the form of extracts? The answer depends, it could be safe, it could be not. Because, we do not know what additives are used to process these herbal products so that they are made into capsules. If it is believed that there are no harmful chemicals added in it, then the product may be safe for you to consume. However, regarding regular long-term consumption, we recommend that you do not do it, unless you have consulted a doctor and it is declared safe.
Hope it helps ya..
