Subject: Re: Spirulina: The facts and the hype
Joe & Anne Lewis <firstname.lastname@example.org> have sent out numerous messages to
nutrition newsgroups highlighting the benefits of spirulina.
Mark Thorson (eee@ netcom.com) has collected a number of references which
question the validity of claims that spirulina and several types of tempeh
are good sources of vitamin B-12 for humans because the USP assay measures
vitamin B-12 that is active for bacteria not humans.
Can any one comment on the benefit or lack of benefit to humans, of taking
vitamin B-12 analogues?
