Viability and metabolic activities are important characteristics of probiotics microorganisms. They give rise to therapeutic benefits as well as increase in physiological activity of cultured products. The stimulatory effect of Spirulina platensis was studied on three lactic acid bacteria. The addition of dry biomass of S.platensis at various concentrations of 1mg, 5 mg, 10 mg/ml promoted growth of Lactobacillus acidophilus up to 171.67% and 185.84% respectively at pH 6.2.The growth of other… Expand

Isolation of three high molecular weight polysaccharide preparations with potent immunostimulatory activity from Spirulina platensis, aphanizomenon flos-aquae and Chlorella pyrenoidosa.
Three new high molecular weight polysaccharide preparations isolated from food-grade microalgae that are potent activators of human monocytes/macrophages are identified: "Immulina" from Spirulina platensis, "Immunon" from Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, and "Immurella" from Chlorella pyrenoidosa. Expand
Iron availability from iron-fortified spirulina by an in vitro digestion/Caco-2 cell culture model.
It is concluded that spirulina could represent an adequate source of iron because of a 27% higher ferritin formation from beef and Spirulina digests than from digests of yeast and wheat flour. Expand
