Spirulina 100% is a natural dietary supplement created with Spirulina, a species of blue-green algae. Born on earth over 3.5 billion years ago, Spirulina is said to be the oldest plant on earth. Since it is nutritionally rich both in quality and quantity, Spirulina is attracting more and more attention as a promising natural food.
Spirulina has 5 Major Nutrients:
1. Full of beneficial proteins
Spirulina contains 3 times the amount of protein found in beef and 2 times the amount in soy beans. You can get the excellent quality proteins in Spirulina which help to boost the white blood cell that fights and prevents infection.
2. Chlorophyll as “green blood”
Spirulina contains abundant amounts of natural pigments such as chlorophyll and light blue phycocyanin.
Chlorophyll is a well-known pigment that is often called “green blood” because it becomes the raw material of the blood in our bodies. This is why chlorophyll is very effective in the treatment of anemia.
Chlorophyll not only detoxifies acetylaldehydes, the cause of hangovers, and histamines related to allergies, but also eliminates bad breath and body odor, alleviates constipation, frostbite and aids in lowering cholesterol.
3. Chronic shortages of vitamin B12
Spirulina contains generous amounts of vitamin B12. There is a tendency to overlook this vitamin in our diets, but it is vital in the functioning of red corpuscles and nucleic acids. Disorders arising from deficiencies of vitamin B12 include virulent anemia, diabetic nervous disorders, trigeminal neuralgia, liver disorders and impaired memory.
4. Beta carotene, the key to preventing cancer
Beta carotene is gaining attention as an effective nutrient in the prevention of cancer. The amount of carotene required for a person in the prevention of cancer is 5 – 15 milligrams a day. In terms of vegetable consumption, this is the equivalent of 200g of green and yellow vegetables and 100g of light colored vegetables. For people who find this level of intake on a daily basis difficult, Spirulina is recommended as a nutritional supplement. Spirulina has 50 times the amount of carotene as chlorella, 10 times that of carrots and 60 times that of spinach.
5. Linoleic acid and linolenic acid in the adjustment of cholesterol
Spirulina contains rich amount of linoleic acid and linolenic acid which are attracting attention particularly for their role in controlling cholesterol in the bloodstream. By dissolving and flushing excess cholesterol from the bloodstream and preventing high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries, they inhibit carcinogens and the spread of cancer promoted by excess cholesterol.
Linoleic and linolenic acids are substances that cannot be produced by the body, so if they are not supplemented through our dietary habits, a deficiency will occur.
