Nutritional Benefits

Protein – Spirulina has the highest protein content of any natural food. Gerophyta Spirulina contains between 60 and 65% protein. Spirulina provides all the essential amino acids and is therefore considered a complete protein. Furthermore, protein from Spirulina is easily digestible due to the organism’s cell wall being free from cellulose and 85 – 95% digestible.

Vitamins – Spirulina contains both water and fat soluble vitamins and is a rich source of Vitamin B12. The Vitamin-B complex consists of the following vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12, all present in the Spirulina matrix. Most of these vitamins play a vital role in releasing energy from food and maintaining a healthy nervous system.

Minerals – Spirulina is the best natural iron supplement available and has been shown to correct anaemia, increase blood haemoglobin content and increase iron reserves. Iron from Spirulina is more than twice as absorbable as the form of iron found in most meats and vegetables.

Healing Pigments  

Chlorophyll is the green pigment in Spirulina, and aids in cleansing and detoxifying the body. It is referred to as “Green Blood” due to its striking resemblance to human haemoglobin.

Phycocyanin is a naturally occurring, blue pigment in Spirulina and stimulates blood production which in turn strengthens the immune system. It is also a potent antioxidant, protecting the body against DNA damage and premature aging.

Beta-carotene is an anti-cancer substance. Beta-carotene is a source of vitamin A found in spirulina and is 20-25 times higher than in carrot. Spirulina is the world’s highest beta carotene food, reducing long-term health risks.

Essential fatty acids  Spirulina  is  a  rich  source  of  GLA  (gamma  linolenic  acid),  which  is  a precursor for the body’s prostaglandins, the master hormones necessary for many essential body functions. GLA is important for growth, development and proper immune function. Next to mother’s milk, Spirulina is the highest whole-food source of this important compound. GLA dissolves fat deposits in blood vessels, thus preventing heart problems.

Polysaccharides Calcium-Spirulan is a water-soluble polysaccharide unique to Spirulina. This polymerized sugar molecule contains both sulphur and calcium. Calcium-Spirulan has been shown to inhibit the replication of life-threatening viruses such as HIV-1. By inhibiting viral penetration of the cell it renders the virus vulnerable to the host’s immune system.
