Spirulina is an ancient blue/green algae, and is one of the oldest forms of life on the planet. Originally cultivated by the Aztecs in the 16th century as a primary food source, spirulina is now considered one of the most potent superfoods on the planet. This microscopic algae is praised for its high protein content and healing capabilities.

Spirulina has been valued for its immune boosting properties for centuries. These single cellular algae modulates blood cells, and contains bioactive proteins that stimulate the intestinal immune system. Studies have revealed spirulina’s ability to enhance response to vaccines and improve allergy symptoms. Spirulina actively stimulates cell regeneration, progressing healing processes and preventing further illnesses from developing.
Another benefit of antioxidants is protection against free radical damage. Exposure to free radicals and toxins can cause long-term damage to the body, causing a wide range of health issues including heart disease and cancer. Spirulina binds to heavy metals and foreign free radicals, and is effective treatment for poisoning and exposure to harmful contaminants.
Spirulina is a protein powerhouse, containing all essential 9 amino acids our bodies need to function optimally. This superfood boasts more protein per pound than chicken and beef, and has the highest concentration of digestible vegetable protein at 70% per serving. Readily digested plant based protein improves muscle repair and improves blood circulation, making spirulina a superior protein choice.
One of the most effective natural detoxifiers is spirulina. Large concentrations of bioavailable iron and chlorophyll are found in spirulina, which promotes the regeneration of red blood cells. Chlorophyll binds to heavy metals and radioactive isotopes, removing harmful chemicals from the body permanently. Spirulina is extremely beneficial for anyone undergoing chemotherapy, individuals with anemia, pregnant women, and people exposed to environmental pollutants.
Beta-carotene, otherwise known as Vitamin A, is largely responsible for maintaining healthy eyesight, improving night vision, strengthening the skin, and the development of strong bones and teeth. Spirulina has ten times the beta-carotene per gram compared to carrots, which makes spirulina beneficial for anyone wanting to invest in long term health and longevity.
Spirulina contains 8% lipid content, providing a healthy and balanced source of essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Omegas are critical for protecting the brain and heart from oxidative stress, and stimulating the nervous system. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for lowering cholesterol, promoting cardiovascular health, and improving joint mobility. As one of the leading natural sources of the omega-6 fatty acids Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), spirulina provides protection from rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, nerve pain, depression, fatigue, and allergies.
Spirulina is one of the best natural energy boosters available. Because spirulina contains such high quantities of iron, it is a highly effective treatment for symptoms of fatigue. Rich antioxidants and fatty acids stimulate metabolic activity, which promotes using stored fat cells for energy. Thus, spirulina is great for weight management and sustained energy.
The health benefits of spirulina can enhance any lifestyle, providing optimal nutrition that strengthens the body and mind, while relieving a wide variety of diseases and illnesses.
