Spirulina is becoming increasingly attractive to nutritionists and health conscious consumers around the globe, for many reasons.
To live in optimum health, every body needs nutrients for growth, maintenance and reproduction. A typical western diet often no longer supplies the sustenance our bodies need, in order to repair and maintain vitality.
Spirulina is principally composed of protein, carbohydrates, fats and ash (sodium and potassium). It also contains most of the vitamins and minerals needed to maintain balance and well being. Spirulina has a long history of safe human consumption, and over 30 years of commercial safety testing. It meets all international food quality and safety standards. Spirulina has the most remarkable concentration of functional nutrients ever known in any food, plant, grain or herb. Spirulina contains all the essential amino acids and as such can be described as a ‘complete protein’.
Once Spirulina is ingested, your body will feel new energy within minutes. This is due to the fact that, digestion is the biggest process occurring in the body, so your body sends most of its blood supply to your digestive organs. This aids in digestion, but can result in a tired, sluggish feeling. Spirulina is the total opposite; because it can be consumed as a liquid, you feel light and energized, as it provides energy and nourishment between meals, or in place of a meal.
- When mixed with water, premium Spirulina is absorbed by the body almost immediately. There is no strain on the digestive organs, so you don’t feel sluggish like you can do after regular meals.
On top of all this, Spirulina delivers more nutrition per acre than any other food on the planet. This has many exciting implications for more efficient, less damaging food production for the future. Spirulina cultivation requires little or no use of herbicides or pesticides and is energy efficient. Since it does not erode, deteriorate or pollute its natural habitat, it is the sensible choice for sustainable living.
