High Quality Protein
Spirulina is a blue-green algae containing complete, balanced protein and a wide range of valuable nutrients. Spirulina is approximately 70% easily digestible protein. It contains 18 out of 22 amino acids and all of the essential amino acids, making it a unique vegetarian source of complete protein. Better yet, Spirulina protein is 95% digestible compared to meat sources, which are often difficult for the body to break down. In fact, beef protein is estimated to be only 20% digestible. Spirulina is a wonderful way to consume high quality protein that's easy on the body. It contains enzymes, which naturally assist in the digestion process.
Naturally Rich in Nutrients
The complete, whole-food nutrition found in this ancient food provides an endless list of health benefits. Spirulina is particularly high in beta-carotene, which is a powerful antioxidant that protects the body from free radical damage. It also converts into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is essential for healthy eyes, skin, teeth, nails, hair, bones and a strong immune system.
Spirulina is an excellent source of B vitamins, particularly vitamin B12. This is important because vitamin B 12 is essential to good health. Spirulina is one of the very few vegetarian foods that provide Vitamin B 12. Spirulina also contains vitamin E, a highly bioavailable source of iron, 14 naturally chelated minerals and numerous trace elements.
SuperFood for Dieters
In addition to being one of the most nutrient-rich foods on earth, Spirulina is low in fat, calories and cholesterol. Many people have found that when they eat Spirulina before a meal, it satisfies their appetite allowing them to reduce their overall food consumption. When the body receives proper nutrition, it is far less likely to have an overactive appetite, which can lead undernourished people to eat large amounts of food. Spirulina is a nutrient rich food that will satisfy the appetite with few calories. This SuperFood can be a valuable part of any healthy weight loss program.*
Spirulina is also an excellent source of complex carbohydrates. It contains glycogen and rhamnose, which are easily absorbed by the body and converted into quick energy.*
This low calorie, high protein, nutritious food provides the abundant energy we need to live each day to the fullest.*
Supports Natural Immunity
Spirulina naturally contains many nutrients needed for optimum immunity such as GLA, beta-carotene and other carotenoids. A number of clinical studies have shown that Spirulina supports the immune system and can increase interferon levels and macrophage activity, both of which are important for a strong and active immune system.*
Cleanse and Detoxify
One reason why green foods are so important is because of their high chlorophyll content. Chlorophyll, similar in structure to human hemoglobin, is very cleansing, and is the pigment that gives green plants their color. It helps to rid the body of heavy metals and other toxins. For many years, people who wish to cleanse their body of impurities have periodically fasted with Spirulina.*
