Spirulina is a miracle superfood found deep underwater. With a range of nutrients, this blue-green algae is known to support immune and metabolic function and reduce risk and symptoms of many health problems over a lifetime.
What is Spirulina?
Spirulina is a nutritious blue-green algae naturally found in subtropical waters. It grows in microscopic spirals, hence the name Spirulina. With both plant-like and bacterial properties, Spirulina contains a wealth of nutrients that give it dietary, medicinal and therapeutic value.
Spirulina has 62% amino acids content, making it a rich source of protein equivalent to meat and milk. It also contains an array of important nutrients that are not often combined in other foods or nutritional supplements. These include an abundance of antioxidants, essential fatty acids like gamma lenolenic acids, vitamins including the B-complex varieties, and many trace minerals such as calcium, magnesium, niacin, potassium and iron.
Health Benefits of Spirulina
Although it originates as pond scum from murky waters, Spirulina is a treasured nutritional supplement that can improve many aspects of health and wellness. Initial research indicates that Spirulina is an excellent immune boosting, anti-viral, heart healthy superfood that supports physical, mental and emotional health.
Spirulina is a potent source of antioxidants, which help the body build and maintain a strong immune system and metabolism. Antioxidants work to prevent and repair cells that have been damaged by oxidation. Free radicals cause oxidative stress on cells and DNA when they enter our bodies through a variety of dietary and environmental factors such as sun exposure, meats and produce and chemical toxins from everyday items. Antioxidants defend against this cellular attack and can help prevent many diseases, heart disease and other serious health conditions.
A strong immune system and smooth metabolic function from antioxidants, along with the many other nutrients found in Spirulina, help stave off numerous potential health problems people face in a lifetime. From infections like the flu and herpes, to allergic reactions to common allergens, Spirulina shows positive results in preventing and reducing symptoms when taken on a regular basis. It can help combat some negative effects of antibiotics that often attack good bacteria necessary for a healthy gut and digestive tract.
