Nitrite Spike from Easy Green?

I have a planted tank that I had neglected for some time. I am full speed back into trying to get it back. I cleaned the tank a lot. Maybe overcleaned. I might have caused a nitrite spike from it. Anyway, did a bunch of water changes and got it back. This week I decided to add easy green and Flourish Excel. Today I tested the water and the nitrites are at .50 ppm. The nitrates are at 10 ppm. No ammonia. Did the addition of the easy green cause a nitrite spike? Is that a thing? Thanks in advance.

When I first bought easy green awhile back I squirted it into a glass of plain water. I had nitrAte readings but no ammonia or NitrIte readings using api liquid test and coop strips. More likely the overcleaning and I’ve never used excel so cannot comment on that. 

I was curious that’s why I tested. I don’t put it in fish tanks but use gobs in plant grow outs
