Anti-Aging Skin Care Diet – Spirulina?

Anti-Aging Skin Care Diet – Spirulina?

Does Spirulina help as part of an Anti-aging skin care diet?

According to an Indian study, (4) the condition of our skin reflects how healthy our overall body is. It describes how some Japanese Senior Citizens who only used Spirulina and water for more than 20 years, demonstrated how good Spirulina was for them, helping to keep their skin young looking.

Anti-Aging Skin Care Diet – Spirulina?


I´m not surprised. My own experience after using Spirulina regularly for the last three years, is that my own skin has softened. And dark patches, blemishes and small warts or marks have disappeared, and my skin somehow looks younger.
By accident (see “About”), it has become my anti-aging skin care diet.

My nails grow healthily, and my hair is now thicker today than 5 year ago. And that is simply by taking oral spirulina supplements – about 3 grammes a day. Might using Spirulina help you to cut down on the number of skin care products you need to use? Or at least reduce some of them?

It’s interesting to note how many expensive skin care products, appear to have spirulina as one of their ingredients. The skin care industry is valued (2018) at >US$135 billion. If the word gets out that this blue-green algae or cyanobacteria can help do the job, potentially at a fraction of the price, what might the impact on the industry be*?


The Indian report (4) describes exactly my experience with regard to my skin; “my goodness you look so well,” comments from friends who have not seen me for years. The report (4), emphasises the importance of a healthy diet, to maintain a good skin complexion. It suggests this can be supported by taking spirulina supplements. It highlights, as we do on various pages on this site, how spirulina is rich in vitamins, protein, minerals, and many other nutrients. It’s also an excellent source of antioxidants.


This video explains how Spirulina is loaded with nutrients, describing how 1 gram of spirulina is about the same as 1 KG of fruit and vegetables in terms of nutrients:

The Evidence

We try very hard at whyspirulina.com to source medical or academic studies to support the claims that Spirulina can help or support the conditions we have pages & posts about. In this case, we have only been able to find a few resources. The Indian study (4) says Spirulina provides “an improved skin tone, more skin elasticity and general skin nutrition”. Whilst an animal study (1) from Japan found that Spirulina helps protect against UVB irradiation on the skin, describing how it “exerts anti tumor effects against UVB irradiation”.

A Brazilian sunscreen study (5, well they do love the beach don´t they), also found that spirulina in the sunscreen, “had a clear protective effect with regards to Ultra Violet light”. The Indian study suggests your skin depends on how healthy our overall body is. Might adding Spirulina to your diet, help yours? You might like to try some yourself.

In the Brazilian study (5) where an extract of Spirulina was added to a cream, it was found to “provide long term skin benefits such as hydration, protection of the skin barrier function and oil control for young and mature skin”. The Indian study (4) also enthusiastically describes the benefits of Spirulina for the skin as well.

  3. Hi there,

    Thank you for providing this informative article.  Great job.

    I have been using ecological spirulina raw powder over 3 years, in my smoothie in the morning. It is an important source of phytonutrient and protein, which maintains the vitality of the whole body, in general.

    I highly recommend the use of spirulina to bring a source of natural health in everybody’s life.

    I will look forward more informative articles.

  5. I remember taking Spirulina when I was younger and I do remember feeling better but over the years I moved on to other vitamins. Now reading this article I am wondering to myself why did I forget about Spirulina?

    I had no idea how good it was for your skin so I think I am definitely going to reintroduce this into my diet. Do you know if Spirulina has any impact when it comes to improving the iron levels in your body?

    • Dear Michel,

      Thank you for your comment and visit to our site. I am glad we have reminded your of how beneficial Spirulina is. Yes, according to the Robert Henrikson book Spirulina has quite high levels of iron.

      Ten grams supply up to 10 mg of iron, 55% of the (USDA) Recommended Daily Value.

      Its most important to obtain supplies from a reliable source.

      Have a great day and thank you for the visit.

  6. Hi! It’s nice to read from your own experience. I like healthier nails and long hair, combined with a nice soft skin! I’ll definitely try spirulina. I am glad you even showed us that not anything that calls itself spirulina can help us. 

    I’m not allergic to nuts, strawberries nor seafood.

    Thank you very much for this post.

    • Thank you for visiting us Ann. If you do start using spirulina I am sure you will notice the difference and it will be much cheaper than so many “skincare” products. Good that you are not alergic to seafood, thats a great indicator that you will be fine with all types of spirulina!

      Have a great day and keep safe.

  7. You know for a long time I too wondered if the condition of someone’s skin really would say something about their health, makes sense now. I’m still a little young and my skin isn’t all bad but I’ve wanted to make sure that I keep it that way so I guess I must get started on spirulina. Will definitely recommend this for friends we are all usually worried about skin   aging. Does spirulina also help get rid of the wrinkles.
