BENEFITS OF SPIRULINA

What’s Great About Spirulina?

Lots. First of all, spirulina is extraordinarily nutrient-dense. Its nutrients are super-concentrated and highly bio-available, which means your body can absorb all these nutrients and put them to work.

 

MORE PROTEIN calorie for calorie

•  Twice the protein of beef

•  5X the protein of quinoa

•  Twice the protein of lentils

 

MORE ANTIOXIDANTS per serving

•  100X the antioxidant Vitamin A of blueberries

•  Double the antioxidant vitamin A of spinach 

 

MORE IRON per serving

•  5X the iron of spinach

 

MORE FOLATE per serving

•  Double the folate of kale

Protein: Spirulina is made up of about 65% complete protein – about twice the density of beef or fish. The balance is chock full of antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids, and more

 

Antioxidants: Spirulina is rich in nutrients that cannot be found in other foods, including the brilliant blue pigments phycocyanin and allophycocyanin, which are powerful antioxidants.

 

Anti-inflammatories: Spirulina is a known source of GLA, which is a potent anti-inflammatory. Studies have documented that it exhibits anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting the release of histamine.

 

This algae, unlike most plants (which are about 90% indigestible cellulose) is completely digestible. Spirulina dissolves completely when you eat it, delivering the nutrients directly to your body.

 

Fresh Spirulina is a potent source of whole, fresh, plant-based nutrients and a delicious part of our everyday meals. That’s enough for us. However, preliminary peer-reviewed research about spirulina’s effect on certain health conditions exists.  We’ve shared links to some of that research here.
