Hey, guys! Lately I've been reading some testimonies about using spirulina for nasal congestion/nasal allergies. I've been trying some myself (2g/day - based on this study), but it's still summer in Brazil (even in the south, where I live, it gets pretty damn hot), so I haven't still noticed any improvements, since it's not allergy season and I haven't got any symptoms yet.
I wanted to know if any of you guys have ever tried spirulina with that purpose in mind, and if you've got any improvements because of it. Can it be a short term solution (that I could take only when symptoms appear, or only during allergy season), or, like in the study I linked above, you have to do it in the long term? Are the effects of it really as significant as the studies says, or would reducing sugar consumption be enough to alleviate nasal congestion? And while we're at it, when people say high sugar consumption causes nasal congestion, do they mean refined sugars or could even excessive glucose intake cause it?
Thanks a lot!
