Product Description

Details

Spirulina
Spirulina is a planktonic, blue-green alga that provides food and oxygen for a wide variety of aquatic life. It has been a part of the human diet since it’s discovery by the Aztecs, and since then been increasingly incorporated around the world. Because of the unique and expansive nutritional profile, the World Health Organisation considers Spirulina among the most nutrient-dense superfoods on the planet! Among the wide array of nutrients packed into this super-green, are protein, vitamin B1, B2 and B3, copper and iron. (1). Spirulina consists of approximately 50-60% protein, and is considered a ‘complete’ protein source, containing all nine essential amino acids. These essential amino acids cannot be synthesized in the body, and so must be attained from the diet. This is just one of the reasons the powerful superfood is accepted as a functional food (2), and will be a fantastic addition to your diet.

About Spirulina
Spirulina is also a rich source of antioxidants, especially phycocyanin. This antioxidant, among several others in Spirulina, has been well-studied and shown to provide a host of healthful benefits (3). Harmful oxidative species buildup in our bodies when we eat processed foods, smoke, drink alcohol and become anxious or stressed. If these are not eradicated by a healthy balance of dietary antioxidants, they can cause illness and contribute to diseases such as coronary artery disease, arthritis, Alzheimer’s and diabetes (4). Ensuring that you are getting sufficient antioxidants, may help to detoxify these substances in your body. This is where Spirulina comes in!
Because of its rich nutritional density and plentiful antioxidant content, Spirulina has also been recognized for its immune enhancing effects (2). Studies have shown that regular supplementing of Spirulina may potentially upregulate the body’s defense cell production, while also preventing the activation of the more aggressive stage of the immune response in athletes (7).
Spirulina is a form of cyanobacteria with one of the richest dietary sources of Chlorophyll. This is the green pigment that all plants require to transform sunlight into nutrients via photosynthesis. In humans, chlorophyll has been shown to provide a range of potential health benefits. It may have a role in reducing the absorption of ingested carcinogens (5), improving skin vitality, enhancing wound healing and improving acne and body odors (6)

Benefits of Spirulina
- Among the many antioxidants in Spirulina, the primary active component is phycocyanin. This is a powerful antioxidant which protects against DNA damage, inflammation and free radical formation (3).
- Chlorophyll, contained within Spirulina, may potentially reduce the absorption of harmful carcinogens ingested as food (5). These are known as aflatoxins and are bound by chlorophyll. This complex cannot be absorbed and so there is only one way out! Yay!
- In a 2019 study, Spirulina supplementation and immune effects were examined in the 19 rowers from the Polish National Team (7). It was observed that in the intervention group (those who received Spirulina), there was a reduced activation of the more aggressive immune response compared to the control group (those who did not supplement) following intense training.
- In a small but well-designed study, diabetic patients who consumed 2g/day of Spirulina, showed an improved fasting blood glucose and lipid profile, compared to those who consumed a placebo, after two months (8).
