It’s Nature’s Perfect Health Supplement
As a health supplement, Spirulina is an extremely high protein source, with a protein content of 60-70 percent higher than any other natural food and also most nutritional products. However, even greater nutritional value can be found in its high concentration of vitamins, minerals and other beneficial nutrients. This superfood has the most remarkable concentration of functional nutrients ever found in food – animal or plant.
Spirulina Nutritional Supplement Drawing
When it was found that Spirulina grew so fast (producing 20 times more protein per acre than soybeans), it was named the food of the future. On top of this, Spirulina delivers more nutrition per acre than any other food on the planet. This has extraordinary implications for more efficient, sustainable food production in the future, as we advance into uncertain economic times.
Nature’s Perfect Food & Nutritional Supplement
3-10 grams a day of the green as a nutritional supplement delivers impressive amounts of vitamin B12 & B complex, iron, essential trace minerals, beta carotene and gamma-linolenic acid. Beyond vitamins and minerals, Spirulina is a super antioxidant. It is rich in phytonutrients and functional nutrients that have a profound positive effect on health.
For those starving in Third world countries, this super concentrated food would bring a quick recovery from malnutrition. In developed countries, the diet is loaded with unhealthy and nutrient depleted foods, which are being consumed in excess. This creates a calorie overload, yet still does not achieve our nutritional requirements.
We now know that Spirulina can renourish our bodies and renew our health. It is legally approved as a food, or food supplement, in the USA, Europe, Japan, UK, Australia, New Zealand and many other countries around the globe. The United States Food and Drug Administration confirmed in 1981 that this green food is a valuable source of protein and contains various vitamins and minerals, and therefore can be legally marketed as a food supplement.
