Regarding spirulina

Hello, I recently heard about this dietary supplement Spirulina. I have read about it on the internet and it says it has no side effect. I am 25 years old and have a really weak eye sight and sometimes have problem of constipation. So will spirulina help me in any way? Is it the right age to have it? Does it has any side effect? Does it help in weight loss also?

There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 25 years so your number will not increase now whether you wear glasses or not as number becomes stable at age of 18-20 yrs. Having said that I advise you to eat balanced diet including green vegetables and seasonal fruits for keeping eyes and body healthy. As you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik. regarding weight loss, you need to exercise a lot and eat nutritious food only

Hello there.... Add fiber to your diet increases the weight of your stool and speeds its passage through your intestines. Slowly begin to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables each day. Choose whole-grain breads and cereals.... Exercise most days of the week. Physical activity increases muscle activity in your intestines. Try to fit in exercise most days of the week. .....
