Spirulina (also called Arthrospira) is a microscopic, beautifully coiled “micro-vegetable” that is packed with plenty of health promoting phytonutrients. This tiny organism has 3.5 billion years of existence and has been used as food for centuries. It was the marvel food of the Aztecs, who used it as an energy boosting food. The Kanebu’s of Africa are currently eating it almost religiously as their sole source of protein. Spirulina has been declared as the food of the future by the United Nations and is being researched as a life support system for long space explorations by NASA the European and Japanese space agencies.

Why Take Spirulina?

This micro-vegetable has the highest content of protein (60-70%) of any plant or animal on the planet. It is also very rich in antioxidants like beta-carotene (Vitamin A), zeaxanthin and mixed carotenoids. Each serving of Spirulina provides the beta-carotene equivalent of 3-4 servings of vegetables, in addition to other phytonutrients.
Phycocyanin, the blue pigment of Spirulina has been studied extensively for its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. It is important in reducing oxidative stress which is the cause of premature aging and many health problems. This brilliant blue pigment is used widely in frozen foods like yoghurts, ice creams, and confectionary and as a rare natural blue food colorant. Phycocyanin and the polysaccharides (special carbohydrates) of Spirulina are known to support a strong immune defense.

Who Benefits from Spirulina?

• Almost anyone who wants to maintain general well-being because this product is essentially a wellness product with many protective benefits.
• Those with compromised immune systems, usually the elderly can benefit from the immune defense properties of Spirulina.
• Those who are allergic to other vegetarian sources of protein can benefit from this non-allergenic product.
Those who suffer from seasonal allergic inflammation may benefit from Spirulina’s anti-inflammatory immune protection.
• People over the age of 65 may benefit from protection against age-related macular degeneration (AMD) of the eye.
• Endurance athletes whose immune system is drained after exercise, and who also at the same time suffer from oxidative stress may benefit from the immune regulation and inhibition of oxidative stress by Spirulina
• Baby boomers who want to slow down the aging process or age while still active may benefit from the anti-oxidative stress properties of Spirulina. The AARP (formerly know as the Association of Retired Persons) magazine considers Spirulina as the first anti-aging supplement placing it even better than blueberries
