5. Not Medical Advice

All content on this Web Site, including, text, images, links, suggestions, programs, videos, guidance, and all other material posted or hosted by this Website (collectively the “Information”), will not be deemed or understood by you to be medical advice, opinion, diagnosis or treatment. Spiraveg does not practice medicine or provide medical care. Spirulina is not a substitute for, nor can it replace, professional advice, diagnosis or treatment. You are encouraged to consult with medical professionals on a regular and ongoing basis as a fundamental and essential part of maintaining general health and treatment of medical conditions, which may be known or unknown to you.

6. Health Claims

Spirulina has formed the subject of medical health studies conducted by reputed, independent researchers and published in reputable scientific and medical journals. A relationship between Spirulina and positive health outcomes in animals has been corroborated in the scientific literature and is generally supported by medical literature on this issue. However, consensus within the scientific community as to the association, causal and/or correlative, between Spirulina and positive health outcomes in humans has not been definitively established. For the foregoing reasons, the Information on this Web Site will not be deemed or understood by you to be a health claim in respect of the impacts of Spirulina on human health, including use of Spirulina as a treatment, preventative measure or cure for any disease or health condition. You further accept and acknowledge that the use of Spirulina may involve significant unknown risks and that the Information may include uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that may cause actual results or performance to differ materially from information provided in the Information.
