What is Organic Spirulina?
Spirulina is a single-celled plant that is part of the blue-green algae family and is named for its spiral-like shape. Algae are responsible for producing and sustaining the oxygenated atmosphere. Spirulina grows in fresh and brackish waters inland and is packed with nutrients and energy. It can be grown almost anywhere, even water that is not suitable for dinking or in desert areas without cutting down trees.
Spirulina yields 20 times more protein per acre than soybeans and is an excellent source of digestible protein. It is made up of 70% protein, 5% fat (good fats) and no cholesterol, in addition to various vitamins and minerals that include B-12. Beta-carotene can be found in Spirulina and is ten times more concentrated in Spirulina than in carrots. Supplementing with Spirulina can be especially beneficial for those who do not eat enough vegetables each day. It contains eight essential amino acids, the essential fatty acid Gamma Linolenic Acid and phytonutrients. Spirulina’s rich colours come from natural pigments that reaps the sun’s energy; chlorophyll (green, carotenoids (yellow and orange) and phycocyanin (blue).
What does Organic Spirulina do?
Nutritional practitioners believe that the mean role of the body’s metabolism is to the support the immune system, so when the immune system is stressed, it draws on the body’s metabolic energy. Those with an immune system imbalance may often low in energy or have chronic fatigue. Supplementing with Spirulina can help balance the immune system and allow metabolic energy to be used elsewhere in the body.
The phytonutrients beta-carotene, phycocyanin and polysaccharides are respsonsible for strengthening the immune system. Beta-carotene is a potent antioxidant that fights free radicals and protects the body from oxidative damage. A study evaluating the association between polysaccharides in Spirulina and immune system function found an increase in T-cell, thymus gland, bone marrow and spleen activity. Spirulina does not just stimulate the immune system; it also enhances the body’s ability to generate blood cells and be effective in protecting against germs.
Chlorphyll is the green pigment molecule found in plants and is responsible for absorbing the sun’s energy for photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is chemically similar to hemoglobin in human blood. The only difference is that the central molecule in chlorophyll is magnesium and in hemoglobin, it is iron. As a dietary supplement, chlorophyll can detoxify the blood and liver, help build red blood cells and help repair tissues. Toxins and natural waste products from chemicals build up in the body and detoxifying and cleansing the internal system can improve fatigue, illness, pain and poor digestion.
Spirulina is a great dietary source of the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid. Other foods high in gamma linolenic acid are mother’s milk, borage oil, evening primrose oil and black currant oil. Gamma linolenic acid is converted into important hormone-like compounds called prostaglandin, which can affect the function of almost every system in the body. They are used to regulate inflammation, pain, blood pressure, fluid balance and blood clotting. Prostaglandins can also affect hormone production and function.
