Spirulina, The Food of Future

Spirulina is a blue-green algae. Its name is derived from the Latin word for spiral and describes the microalgae's cell structure of spiralling filaments. Spirulina is a single-celled fresh water algae and is one of the most nutritious foods known to man.

The foods we eat in our daily life are the first defense from the negative effects of lifestyle pollution, radiation, stress and toxic chemicals. But so many processed foods are nutritionally empty which leaves us vulnerable to poor health and low energy. The good news is many essential nutrients experts recommend to help in protect our bodies are found concentrated in Spirulina. It contains the most powerful combination of nutrients ever known in any grain, herb or food.

Spirulina provides a wide range of delicate phytonutrients with very significant health benefits. Phytonutrients include antioxidants known for giving fruits and vegetables their orange and yellow colors. Nutritionists recommend increasing our intake of phytonutrients to protect against the harmful effects of UV sunlight, pollution, and environmental stress.

Doctors and Scientists recommend we eat five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. In real life, it doesn’t always happen. That’s why you need Spirulina. It is becase Spirulina contains:
  • Antioxidant Vegetable Nutrition - Nature’s richest source of carotenoids
  • B-Complex Vitamins - Supplies Thiamin, Riboflavin and vitamin B-12
  • Iron - A daily dose provides more iron than two cups of spinach
  • Organic Protein - Richest source in the plant world - three times that of beef
  • GLA - Building block for nature’s anti-inflammatory As a result, Spirulina is important for anyone needing additional nourishment including dieters, athletes, convalescents and the elderly.
Spirulina provides generous amounts of Beta-Carotene and Chlorophyll. Spirulina also provides RNA, DNA and important GLA fatty acids. As a health supplement, Spirulina algae is an extremely high protein source with a protein content of 60-70 percent higher than any other natural food and most nutritional products.

As a rich of vitamins, minerals, and protein, spirulina is outstanding for its antibacterial, antiparasitic antiviral and anticancer properties, and has been used for ulcers, anemia, heavy-metal poisoning, allergies and radiation poisoning.

Spirulina is also known as a low calorie, low fat and cholesterol-free source of protein containing all the essential amino acids. It helps combat 'free radicals' which can lead to ailments like cancer, arthritis, cataracts. Moreover, the gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) present in spirulina dissolves fat deposits, helps prevent heart problems and reduces "bad cholesterol" helping in weight-loss programs. Sulfolipids in spirulina are remarkably active against the AIDS virus. Regular intake of spirulina reduces kidney toxicity, improves wound healing, increases anti-viral activity, stimulates the immune system, and reduces radiation sickness.

Spirulina contains most remarkable concentration of nutrients known in any food, plant, grain or herb. It is also packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients and is basically the best food and or supplement. Carbohydrates in spirulina may prompt immune cells to destroy cancer cells. Phycocyanin, the antioxidant in spirulina appears to scavenge the free radicals that can cause cancer and the age-related brain inflammation that impairs memory and motor skills in older adults.

So if you want to take diet and don't want to loose nutritional food, it is recommended for you to take spirulina as your the best supplemental food. Just six tablets a day (3 grams) will help supply the nutrients lacking in most of our diets. Good luck.
