not some spirulina grown in a goose poop infested back yard pond in rural China or any of a thousand other such places hinted at by johnny come lately posters. Cyanotech has every right to name their product in conjunction with this study and feel very good about it.
The Cellular & Immunology journal is an excellent journal, and the UC Davis lab that did the research is reputable. They used the Cyanotech product in their experiments because it is uniform in quality, purity and composition.
If UC Davis used any other 100% Organic Spirulina supplement from a quality manufacture, of which there are hundreds, then they would come up with the same generalized result that spirulina helps to boost immune response in people over 50. Woop te doo!
Something's fishy when Spirulina made by CYAN gets to suggest they have the superior spirulina and only their product could give such results.
UC Davis should be ashamed of themselves for letting their name front for a vapid pump of a public micro cap stock.
CYAN seems to have no shame, so I couldn't even expect them to reform their misrepresentative press release.
