Cyanotech Corporation (Nasdaq Capital Market: CYAN), makers of the microalgae-based, nutritional supplement Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica®, reported that Spirulina was highlighted Monday, March 28th, on the popular Dr. Oz Show. On the show, Suzy Cohen, known as “America’s Most Trusted Pharmacist™”, said that women taking birth control pills should take Spirulina. She noted that birth control pills could deplete mineral levels in the body and recommended 3 to 4 grams of Spirulina daily as a natural way to restore minerals to optimum levels. Cyanotech’s Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica has significantly higher levels of minerals compared to other brands, and in fact, is the only Spirulina in the world produced with deep sea water added, which contains all 94 trace minerals and elements.
