SPIRULINA is a high whole food source of Protein, Human Active B12, Beta Carotene, Antioxidants, Chlorophyll and Glycosen – making it the super blue-green algae. Also an ecologically beneficial food.
Spirulina is a blue-green coloured vegetable algae found in both fresh and saltwater, from the prehistoric cyanobacteria family. It is a typically adaptable example of the microalgae varieties, growing well in extreme conditions.
It particularly thrives in naturally mineral rich alkaline lakes. Its key requirements are sunlight and a hot climate.
Spirulina is now cultivated worldwide for the commercial dietary supplement market in specialised open ponds. As the issue of food production for our increasingly undernourished planetary population gains importance, cultivation of this highly productive and nutrient dense algae could offer a major contribution to solving the problem.
Spirulina is a valuable nutrient source, and as a reliable source of vegetable protein is of particular benefit to people eating a vegan or vegetarian diet.
Dosage: Take 1 tablet daily after meal or as recommended by a doctor or a pharmacist. This is a traditional medicine. lf symptoms persist, please consult a doctor.
Many studies show supplementation with spirulina supports a healthy immune system as it supports red and white blood cell counts. Because of this, spirulina may provide support for energy. Spirulina nourishes healthy gut flora and in this way supports the body’s defence mechanism.
Spirulina is a good source of natural beta-carotene, the precursor to vitamin A. It has ten times the beta-carotene concentration of carrots. Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant and known for supporting immunity, eye health and healthy membranes.
Two other nutrients give spirulina its distinctive colour. The blue comes from phycocyanin, and chlorophyll, the green pigment. Chlorophyll is known as the ‘blood of plants’ because of its similarity in structure to haemoglobin in human blood. Chlorophyll also supports digestion and helps to balance acid secretion. It aids body tissues including liver cells with normal repair processes and supports balanced cardiovascular health.
What are the health indicators for supplementation?
For a normal healthy immune system, or if times are a bit stressful, then a daily spirulina supplement could aid your wellbeing.
Because spirulina is high in vitamins, nutrients and protein it may assist with the overall health of tissues including eyes, hair, digestive system organs and skin. Spirulina’s iodine content makes it a valuable aid in balancing thyroid function.
Spirulina may also help to bind heavy metals and toxins and support their excretion out of the body provided other important minerals are insufficient levels. Always ask your health professional before undergoing a heavy metal detox.
