    Spirulina has not been proven to work for any of the conditions that people use it to treat. More well designed studies are necessary to determine whether it actually works. However, the way in which spirulina works is tied to the various nutrients, the active ingredients they include: protein, beta-carotene, phycocyanin, B-complex vitamins, chlorophyll, vitamin E and various minerals.
